Well, that is a surprise. It breaks the trend of the MyNBA2K app "cover" player gracing the game's cover the following season.

Add Kyrie to the list of former Live cover athletes on 2K covers.

KG and Shaq being the others off the top of my head.

Yeah, Durant was on the cover of NBA Elite 11 and copies were actually produced, so that kind of counts.

I like how they have to put his name on it as if people won't know who he is

Yeah, they've been doing that for the past couple of years. A little strange.

No. Contracts are signed, Marketing is out there. 0% Chance they change a Cover after its revealed.

You could be right there. NBA ShootOut 2002 had Stephon Marbury on the cover wearing his Nets jersey, despite the fact he'd been traded to the Suns that same offseason. Obviously some things have changed since then, but it's probably too late to re-shoot and re-print, should Irving get traded. Perhaps they could offer it as an insert though, similar to the multi-cover inserts for NBA 2K16. Maybe even a Photoshopped version.
