The NBA 2K22 covers were revealed July 14 featuring three editions and one debut for the first ever WNBA star to grace a cover edition of the game.

As with most sports games, revealing cover athletes for new releases is one of the most exciting announcements building up to releases. EA Sports revealed Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes for the Madden NFL 22 cover, plus Kylian Mbappe returning for the second year in a row as the FIFA 22 cover star. 2K not only revealed three covers, but a first for the franchise with Candice Parker gracing a special edition of the game.

The cover stars are as follows:

  • Luka Doncic - Dallas Mavericks
  • Candice Parker - Chicago Sky
  • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant - NBA 75th Anniversary Edition

Having multiple cover athletes for different editions of sports titles has been a norm for a number of years now. 2K is breaking the mold by including the first ever female cover athlete in NBA 2K's franchise history. All three covers are accentuated by bright colors

Every athlete, save for Kevin Durant who was on the 2K15 cover as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, is debuting for the first time in 2K22.
