To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NBA 2K series, the game will release a special edition of NBA 2K19 with Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James as the cover.

James was asked to personally select words that describe him to be included in the cover art. He chose words like “King,” “Strive for Greatness,” “Equality” and also, “G.O.A.T.”

“It’s humbling to be on the 20th anniversary cover of a game I’ve played and loved since I was a little kid,” James said in a statement. “We were able to do something really unique for the cover that represents everything that drives me and inspires me — from my family to where I come from and words I live by. I’m honored my journey can be part of this special time in 2K history and I’m excited for fans to see it.”

This is the second time James has appeared on the cover of the game. He last landed on the cover of NBA 2K14 as a member of the Miami Heat.
