24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Earlier this year, Kobe Bryant was revealed as the legend cover star for NBA 2K17. On Wednesday, Pacers forward Paul George was revealed as the official NBA 2K17 cover athlete.
PG had a career year in 2015-16, but more importantly a comeback for the ages after his gruesome leg injury in the 2014 USA Basketball Showcase. The man who was a bucket away from setting the NBA All-Star Game scoring record this past February in Toronto averaged career-highs across the boards this season; In points with 23.1 per game, in rebounds with 7.0 per game and assists as well with 4.1 per night.
Being the cover star of NBA 2K holds some serious prestige nowadays, and not many players deserved it as much as Paul George did.
