Celtics Champion Jayson Tatum on NBA 2K25 Cover – Boston News, Weather, Sports

BOSTON (WHDH) – Fresh off of winning his first NBA championship and a record-breaking contract extension, Celtics star Jayson Tatum will be featured on the cover of this year’s NBA 2K25 video game.

Game publisher 2K announced Wednesday that Tatum has been named the cover star of one of its athletes.

In addition to Tatum, this year’s covers will feature two-time WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson and NBA player Vince Carter.

“It’s an honor to be the cover athlete for NBA 2K25,” Tatum said in a statement. “I’ve been playing NBA 2K since I was a kid and it’s been my dream to one day be on the cover.”

“Even after winning an NBA championship, I’m humbled to see it all come to life,” Tatum said.

Tatum joined the NBA in 2017 and has remained with the Celtics throughout his career, to this day.

Tatum played a key role in Boston’s run to its 18th championship last month, averaging 25 points per game in 19 games.

About two weeks after celebrating his NBA Finals victory during the Celtics’ duck boat parade, Tatum signed a five-year, $315 million contract extension that will keep him in Boston through the 2029-30 season.

This year’s NBA2K game will have four cover versions. The standard cover will feature Tatum. The WNBA Edition will feature Wilson. The All-Star Edition will feature Tatum and Wilson together, and the Hall of Fame Edition will feature Carter.

This will be the first year that NBA2K will feature both a male and female athlete on the cover.

The premiere of 2K25 is scheduled for September 6.
