The popular video game NBA 2k made sure to honor the late Kobe Bryant as the final cover athlete of the upcoming NBA 2k21.

Three athletes were unveiled as the covers namely Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, rookie Zion Williamson from the New Orleans Pelicans, and the former Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant.

Kobe Bean Bryant, who lost his life alongside his daughter Gianna Bryant on a tragic helicopter crash, is continued to be remembered by people, places, and even in the video game.

The world was shattered on Bryant’s death who was the basketball icon of the generation after the Michael Jordan era. Bryant had won five NBA championships, two Finals MVP, one regular-season MVP, 18 times All-Star, four All-Star game MVP, and so on.

Bryant also inspired many athletes and fans with his ‘Mamba Mentality’ that perseveres despite the circumstances and the willingness to win.

The release of the 2k21 has yet to reveal but the anticipation of the game has been receiving hype already.
