Back in June, Kyrie Irving was named the NBA 2K18 cover athlete and by the end of July he was asking for a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Yesterday he was granted his wish and is now a member of the Boston Celtics.
This may be a good move for Kyrie but it’s a twist of sort because now he’s on the cover of the game wearing a Cavaliers jersey.
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. A few days before Madden 09 dropped, Brett Favre was traded from the Packers to the New York Jets and EA then made a later copy of him in a Jets uniform.
Expect for 2K to do the same for Kyrie Irving in a Celtics uniform, these may be an entire new shipment of games with the updated cover art instead of a replacement slip to put inside of your case.
