Congrats to team Drewkerbockers for beating team GFG at the NBA2k16 Road To The Finals Championship, winning $250k and championship rings in front of NBA2k17 cover athlete Paul George and somebody who knows a few things about winning championship rings: Kobe Bryant.
Former Laker Kobe, the NBA2k17 Legends cover athlete, attended the event and participated in a Q&A along with (future Laker?) George. Although Kobe has been appearing on video game covers since 1998 (remember NBA Courtside for N64?) and appeared on NBA2k10, he said it was a “dream come true” to be on the cover of 2k17. He also reminisced about his final game and how cool it was to be finally cool in front of his kids.
