Dame D.O.L.L.A. Logo Lillard. Sub Zero. Few players match his versatility on the court, and even fewer dominate the last minutes of the 4th quarter when the game is on the line: Dame Time! Damian Lillard rains fire on his competition and regularly drops bars in the music studio, matching perfectly with this year’s theme for NBA 2K21: Everything is Game.
“This is a special moment for me in my NBA career,” said Lillard. “I’ve been a fan of NBA 2K for years and love how they represent all aspects of basketball culture. I’m an avid 2K player so I’m honored to join the other NBA greats who have been on the cover. I’m grateful to all my fans and can’t wait for everyone to experience the game later this year.”
As the cover athlete for NBA 2K21 on current-generation platforms, players around the world will see Lillard's skywalking dunk on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC and Google Stadia.
“There are a lot of great players in the NBA today, but Damian Lillard has done a particularly standout job of representing the current generation of NBA superstar," stated Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K. "From his cultural influence, musical success, off the court leadership, and on court domination, he's the perfect fit for our cover of NBA 2K21 on current-generation platforms; we're honored to have him."
