Potential Cover Athletes for NBA 2K23

There are a lot of names that are making polls and odds to land the NBA 2K23 cover. However, there's one in particular that we believe deserves it.

Stephen Curry was electric this year, winning another championship with the Golden State Warriors and being named Finals MVP. Even a big three image with Curry joined by Klay Thompson and Draymond Green would be incredible.

CURRY COVER: Could Steph get on the cover of NBA 2K23?

Along with Curry, there are many that would like to see Ja Morant on the cover of NBA 2K23 as well. Right now, he leads the odds via Oddshark:

  • Ja Morant+100
  • Nikola Jokic+300
  • Jayson Tatum+400
  • Joel Embiid+450
  • Stephen Curry+500

As you can see, the reigning MVP Nikola Jokic is in the running as well, so perhaps he could make the cover.

Release Date Expectations

Although it's not confirmed, we have what we believe will be the release date for NBA 2K23. This of course is without any delays that might happen.

Using previous releases, including the release date of NBA 2K22, we expect this year's title to be released on Friday, September 9, 2022.
