A new NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete has been added and it's not someone that anyone actually expected to make it onto a cover.
Most thought LeBron James would end up getting his own cover but it's actually J. Cole who landed the cover of the Dreamer Edition.
Here's everything we know so far about the NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete and when the next set of reveals could arrive.
LATEST - Dreamer Edition revealed
We didn't think there'd be another edition of NBA 2K23, however, there is. Releasing in the fall, the NBA 2K23 Dreamer Edition will release.
With new NBA 2K23 cover athlete J. Cole gracing the cover, you'll be able to get this edition in GameStop's around the US.
From the MyCAREER trailer, we think J. Cole will play a large role in your MyPLAYER's journey. He also might provide some advice when it comes to your music career.

WNBA Edition of NBA 2K23
The WNBA Edition of NBA 2K23 brought Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi to the forefront of the game.
What we're hoping is that this means that the MyWNBA game mode will receive a bit more attention this year as well.
The good news is you'll get some pre order rewards along with this GameStop exclusive version of NBA 2K23.
Here are the rewards available:
- 5,000 Virtual Currency & 5,000 MyTEAM Points
- 10 MyTEAM Promo Packs (delivered one a week)
- A Boost for each MyCAREER Skill type
- A Boost for each Gatorade Boost type

Michael Jordan Editions
While we're still waiting on official word about the standard edition main NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete, the legend has already been unveiled.
Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest of all time, will take the spotlight for NBA 2K23 in two unique covers seen below:
Players can secure the Michael Jordan Edition or Championship Edition of NBA 2K23 soon when pre orders go live, and one even includes a year of NBA League Pass.
In addition, we know that more reveals are on the way in the next few days, and reports continue to suggest Devin Booker will be the chosen one as primary NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete.
We already learned about the NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition, but the standard edition star has yet to be made official.
Past NBA 2K Cover Stars
As we mentioned above, Luka Doncic graced the NBA 2K22 cover. However, the NBA 2K23 cover athlete could be one from a previous cover.
For example, Stephen Curry was on the cover of NBA 2K16. We've also seen multiple combination covers, such as the 75th Edition of NBA 2K22. We're hoping to see a few variant editions this year as well.
In preparation for the NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete, here are some of the former cover athletes from previous years.
- NBA 2K16 - Stephen Curry - Standard Edition
- NBA 2K17 - Paul George - Standard Edition
- NBA 2K18 - Kyrie Irving - Standard Edition
- NBA 2K19 - Giannis Antetokounmpo - Standard Edition
- NBA 2K20 - Anthony Davis - Standard Edition
- NBA 2K21 - Zion Williamson - Standard Edition
- NBA 2K22 - Luka Doncic - Standard Edition
As we can see, of our NBA 2K23 cover athlete options above, only Curry has landed on a cover in the past.
