Kobe Bryant returns to NBA 2K series.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

LOS ANGELES, Calif — Kobe Bryant is recently retired. But we’ll still see plenty of Black Mamba. Not only is Kobe the hottest candidate to join TNT’s “Inside the NBA,” the Los Angeles Lakers icon is also being celebrated with a special “Legend Edition” of NBA 2K17. This is the second time Kobe’s being featured on the cover. He was also on the front of NBA 2K10. Set to release in September, the newest game in the series will come with a limited-edition poster, a pack of Kobe Panini trading cards and a Black Mamba game controller skin coupled with in-game Kobe gear.

The honor, however, doesn’t come without controversy. Many NBA fans and gamers believe Stephen Curry — this year’s Most Valuable Player — should be featured on the cover, not Kobe. Under normal circumstances, the cover features the NBA’s best player which in this case should be Stephen.

But Kobe is a retiring legend which makes things difficult for 2K Sports.

Who’s most deserving? Kobe or Stephen?

  1. fuck 2k my nigga Andrew Wiggins is up next

  2. Make a special Kobe edition then put curry on regular cover

  3. On Xbox one I think they should put both people on the cover like curry get one half and Kobe Bryant get the other half

  4. I think it should be a split cover one side is curry’s face and the other is kobes the theme should be NBA 2K17 to be immortal and there should be two story modes one for my career and the other becoming the black mamba with a Kobe draft and timeline plus when he signs he’s shoes for lebron as a cut scene puls a new mode called curry mode where ur my career play can be coached and trained by steph as ur mentor and friend. Also they need to add a mall to park where u can go shop attire and go buy your shoes at champs or what ever just some ideas

  5. Give Kobe a special edition, or at the very least put him on the back of the cover. Curry deserves the front though, because it has always gone to the best players of that season, and Curry has earned that, it is his time. Kobe has been featured on the 2k cover many times, because he was dominating and one of the best players at the time, if not the best. But like I said it is now Curry’s time to shine.

  7. Don’t mean to hate but I’m sick of Kobe. He should go home and spend time with his family and stay out the spotlight.
