Anthony Davis named cover athlete for NBA 2K20

For the second time in his career, AD will be on the cover

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles Lakers star and former Kentucky Wildcats great Anthony Davis was announced this morning as the cover athlete for the NBA 2K20 video game.

Davis, as well as former Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, will be on a cover depending on which edition of the game you get.

I was a little surprised when I saw he was going to be on the cover. While it is well deserved, I just didn’t expect him to be the one after the way everything went down here recently, between his trade demand and missing 26 games this past season. Even so, he’s one of the best basketball players in the world and the future of the NBA.

This will be the second time that Davis has been a cover athlete for the game as he was one of three cover athletes on NBA 2K16.

However, being the cover athlete is a big deal, and now Davis has the main cover all to himself.
