In a recent interview, DeMar DeRozan who plays for Raptors, called it an honor to be starring on the cover of this year’s 2K game.
I remember being a kid, creating a player in the video game, and being excited just doing that. The next thing was being in the college basketball game, and then the next thing, being in the NBA game. Seeing your face, seeing yourself evolve in the game, and looking even more real, to hearing your voice in the game, to now, being on the cover. It’s something that’s extremely awesome and definitely mind-blowing
