KING JAMES: LeBron should look better than ever after the latest update

Unfortunately there is a slight lack of clarity, as multiple players are listed in the official Patch Notes for this NBA 2K22 Update as receiving "new scans and/or had general likeness updates" in the Current Gen section but those with new scans are noted in the New Gen (Next Gen) section.

As a result, we're going to have to outline each of those separately here as 2K is unlikely to add any more details on which new scans were done on Current Gen.
