EA Sports has now released the official cover for NBA Live 15 which features Damian Lillard.
NBA Live 15 is the latest NBA game from EA Sports following its revival last year. NBA Live 14 featured Kyrie Irving on the cover. EA Sports is choosing rising stars for the cover as Damian Lillard is a young guy too.
Damian Lillard said he’s “thankful EA Sports” chose him to be the cover guy for NBA Live 15. Here’s the rest of message he posted Instagram:
“So thankful for being named the @EASportsInsider #NBALIVE15 cover athlete. I’ve been playing the game since the 16-bit days, so you know this is a dream come true! Hard work has led to so many great things for me and I’m not even close to satisfied.”
Damian Lillard was NBA’s “Rookie of the Year” in 2013 and showed a lot of promise at this year’s NBA playoffs. Him being on the cover of NBA Live 15 means he will compete with Kevin Durant who is NBA 2K15’s cover star. It will be interesting if EA can redeem themself this year as NBA Live 14 was poorly received by everyone when it came out last year. EA Sports promises however the new game has made major improvements.
