For the first time ever, 2K has revealed a Canadian cover in the NBA 2K
series. The athlete who will be appearing on the Canadian cover of NBA 2K18
is DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors. He now joins the two other cover athletes, Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers and hall of famer Shaquille O'Neal. DeRozan had this to say about being chosen for the Canadian cover:
It’s a huge honour to be recognised on the first-ever Canadian cover for NBA 2K and represent the Raptors after eight years with the team. The fans up here are super passionate about basketball, so it’s cool to help introduce a cover that’s just for them.
Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K
, Alfie Brody, also shared his thoughts on the new cover:
