With the release of NBA 2K22 this week, discussions of player ratings and cover athletes have been sparked.
The Hornets Twitter account posted their own version of the new 2K22 cover which starred Hornets star LaMelo Ball.
The mock cover is a Rookie of the Year edition for the 2021 NBA Rookie of the Year.
In LaMelo’s rookie season, he averaged 15.7 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 6.1 assists.
Ball may not have been named the official cover athlete of 2K22, which included the likes of Luka Doncic, Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Candace Parker, but we’ll see if LaMelo graces the cover of NBA 2K in the future.
