Default Who is going to get the next NBA game cover?

Who do you guys think? Any type of game, the Sony ones, the 2k, or EA. I'm thinking they have to get LeBron eventually, and they made a good choice with CP3, because he's blowing up right now.

For EA, I went through the list of NBA teams, and these are my prime candidates ;KG, LeBron, AI, Dwight, Amare(he was on Sony, so maybe he won't do EA), Brandon Roy. I factored in being on the cover recently, and marketing appeal.

Random Note: There was a custom jersey contest, and the best custom jersey would be included as downloadable content for Live 2008.

It won't be Dwight, he's on the cover for NBA Ballers:Chosen One, but yeah he would have been an ideal candidate. Not sure EA would go for CP3 considering he's on 2K8 already.

Don't ask me why, but I think Kevin Durant might get some cover time soon enough. Just a feeling. I'm just not sure they will use LeBron yet. He's got so many endorsements already, it would take a lot of paperwork to get him. They got plenty of years still to use him. Chris Bosh?

Perhaps Monta Ellis? Deron Williams? Greg Oden? Some youngster like that? Like I said I believe Durant will be on a cover very soon.

Rondo doesn't have the marketing potential a lot of other players have right now.

CP3 wasn't one of my candidates.

They should use Deron Williams, or Greg Oden. I would not be happy with someone like Iverson, who is playing great, but is too damn old.

Yeah, I wonder about GO, he was just on a 2k college cover. I was thinking without even a playing year under his belt, they might not take the chance.

AI was on 2k1, 2, 3, and 4(ESPN Basketball)
I doubt he'd be on it again.

I say Deron Williams or LeBron.
Its weird cause LeBron is probably the NBA's biggest star and hes not on the cover of any games.

My random guesses:

NBA 2K9- Brandon Roy or Deron Williams maybe Baron Davis too

NBA Live 09- Lebron, T-Mac, or KG

T-Mac was on Live 2007, and I'm pretty sure KG was on an earlier NBA Live. Didn't they try to get LeBron last year? I think he wanted too much money for the endorsement. I think your choices for 2k9 would be 3 choices EA might consider for NBA Live 2009. I don't even have a slight guess on who might be on 2k9.

I'd take Deron Williams, maybe Durant even though I can't stand him, or Gerald Wallace maybe? I would like Kevin Martin...

Default Re: Who is going to get the next NBA game cover?

Yeah I was thinking Durant, but he did all that advertising stuff for the game with Agent Zero last year, and also being on the front of March Madness 08, so would that prevent him from getting a cover? Actually I just remember Melo was on the March Madness 05 cover, and then got the NBA Live 2005 cover. I predict it could be Durant. If not, perhaps Greg Oden?
