Zion Williamson NBA 2k21 Cover Athlete.
No hate whatsoever to Zion Williamson, but I do not believe that he deserved to be on the cover of NBA 2K21 as the next generation cover. JA MORANT GOT SNUBBED. Zion is a good player with a lot of talent, and despite an injury he only played in 19 games. But he does not deserve to be on that cover as it should have been Ja Morant. Morant is most likely going to win Rookie of the Year (according to our own Kiduce Daniel) and I completely agree. As the player who is most likely to win the award, shouldn't he be on the cover. Ja was averaging 17.6 points per game and is going to be an absolute monster in year 2. Oh right, his rookie season is still not over because of how he has the Memphis Grizzlies in playoff position. At least Ja can get on the cover next year, or the year after that. But he sure did get snubbed.
Also announced as a cover athlete is Damien Lillard and (which is my guess) a Kobe Bryant tribute cover, which will be released soon.
