Paul George Lands on Cover of NBA 2K17
George, 26, is the first Pacers player to ever appear on the cover of an NBA 2K game. With his selection, the packaging returns to a more typical design.
After making a remarkable comeback from a broken right leg, the Indiana Pacers’ three-time All-Star was rewarded by being put on the cover of the wildly popular NBA 2K17 video game. The official announcement came Wednesday night, and George is eager to find out just what his new rating will be.
“I would hope it’s something that’s very generous,” George said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “I’ll wait to see. I don’t get the secrets. Besides, I couldn’t tell you anyway.”
George makes sense on the cover, himself being an avid 2K gamer, frequently posting pictures of him competing with friends in the game on his Instagram account.
