Co-signed. Though because of the work he did with EA last year in the commercials with Gil, I think EA might have been prepping KD as their coverboy for this next game. So it could be Durant on Live 09, Roy/Willams on NBA 09. But you never know.
I think Dwight might get the cover of NBA 2k9. He became pretty popular because of the Dunk Contest and I'm pretty sure plenty of casual fans will recognise him instantly. He's popular, a great player, plays for a popular team and will look good on the cover.
GameCinema HD just put out a trailer for NBA Live 09. While the announcement won't come out till tomorrow, Tony Parker has been announced as the cover athlete for NBA Live 2009. Finals MVP last year...led the Spurs this year..he deserves it.
2K Sports today announced that 11-time NBA All-Star and 2008 Defensive Player of the Year Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics will be featured as the cover athlete and spokesman for this year’s most highly anticipated basketball video game, NBA 2K9. After leading the Boston Celtics to the greatest single-season turnaround in NBA franchise history, Garnett will lend his unmatched passion and on-court intensity to provide dedicated fans with the most fun and riveting basketball simulation experience available.
