LeBron James of the Miami Heat will be the cover athlete of NBA2K14. The hugely successful video game franchise has sold more than five million copies in each of the last three years and is set to break all records with its latest release in October.

Strangely enough this is James’ first ever video game cover.

As the guys over at USA Today explain, the game will have a bunch of new features as well as some pre-order bonuses featuring King James himself.

As LeBron said after winning his first NBA championship last year, “It’s about damn time”.

UPDATE: Could this be another case of a video game curse? LeBron and his Heaters dropped Game 1 today after the trailer for this video game premiered pre-game.
