Following a thread of uncovered leaks, fans and sources may reveal who the cover athlete will be for at least one edition of NBA 2K22.
The as-of-yet unannounced NBA 2K22 from publisher 2K Games has garnered exciting news lately. Recent leaks concerning the NBA 2K series of professional basketball video games have revitalized the conversation around which athlete will be featured as the game’s key art.
It has become a traditional signature to monument each installment’s cover with an action pose of an NBA athlete. The most recent NBA 2K cover athlete to be featured was Damian Lillard in NBA 2K21, with Kobe Bryant being featured in the game’s “Mamba Forever Edition.” Further, NBA 2K21 also received a “Next Gen Edition” which featured Zion Williamson. Each edition offers more, compounded content and interestingly places a new athlete on its cover, meaning that many athletes may share the limelight of a single NBA 2K installment.

User swine_flu_greg details the essentials of the leak, which begins with an advisory statement. The user insists that fans consider the provided leaks “with the hugest grain of salt” and refers to their sources as their citation. The user then unveils a number of leaks from several video games from 2K, beginning with a potential reveal for NBA 2K22. Allegedly, the cover athlete featured on NBA 2K22 is slated to be the Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki.
However, the athlete may only be gracing the cover of a single edition of NBA 2K22. While the leak may be founded as correct if and when the game’s cover is announced, fans are uncertain whether Nowitzki will be NBA 2K22‘s only cover athlete. Because Nowitzki had retired from active play in 2019, fans suggest the athlete may only be featured on a Legend Edition if the leak is indeed true. If fans remain skeptical, there may be evidence that points toward the 2K leak being concretely valid.
Fans have gone ahead and flagged user swine_flu_greg’s leak as legitimate due to a substantial comment the leak has received from reporter and author Jason Schreier. Schreier agrees with the leak’s legitimacy and his reputable insight into announcements and leaks may be solid proof of the leak being truthful. Schreier’s shared thoughts on the leak also appear to mention that the leaked cover athlete will not necessarily be revealed during E3, but at a later and undisclosed date.
Rather, it is important to note that Schreier’s belief in the NBA 2K22 leak being true is based upon his knowledge of the other leaks being true. It remains to be seen if any of swine_flu_greg’s purported leaks are legitimate since no announcements have officially been made, but insider resources may be enough evidence for fans to be justifiably excited for the next NBA 2K game in the meantime.
NBA 2K22 is reportedly in development.
