Many believe that Zion Williamson will lead the charge of the next generation in the NBA, and he is already leading the way into the Next-Gen of video gaming consoles. The Pelicans rookie has been named the cover athlete for NBA2K21 for the upcoming Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X.

"Being on the cover of NBA 2K has been a dream since I was a kid and to be the first NBA 2K21 cover athlete for the next-generation of gaming is really special,” Zion said in a press release. “Since the day I joined Team 2K, I've wanted to make an impact on basketball culture both on and off the court, and being the cover athlete for NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles lets me do that. I can't wait to be part of this global phenomenon and hoop with all the ballers out there on NBA 2K21."

Portland’s Damien Lillard is on the cover for NBA2K21 for the current gaming systems and a third athlete, likely a legend, will be announced tomorrow. Could it be Kobe Bryant?
