A year after Kevin Durant graced the cover of NBA 2K15, it’s Russell Westbrook’s turn to do it, but with the competition.
It was announced Tuesday that Westbrook is the cover athlete for NBA Live 16, which will be released sometime in the fall.
“NBA Live 16 is all about self-expression, and who better embodies that than Westbrook, both on and off the court?” said EA Sports VP of Marketing Anthony Stevenson. “Russell plays every game like he has something to prove. Our team is building NBA Live the exact same way, so we’re thrilled to have him as an ambassador for our game.”
