2K Sports has announced that Michael Jordan will be the cover star of NBA 2K11. He is a 14-time NBA All-Star, five-time NBA Most Valuable Player, six-time NBA World Champion and is a recent Hall of Fame inductee. He also was in the best film ever made: Space Jam.
“It’s an honour to be featured on the cover of NBA 2K11,” said Jordan, current majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. “I have no doubt that NBA 2K11 will be a big hit with gamers and basketball fans alike. I’m looking forward to getting back out onto the court, virtually. Let’s hope they get my dunk from the foul line right.”
The game will be released on October 5th.
