LeBron James' Words Speak Volumes on NBA 2K19's 20th Anniversary Edition

2K today announced that NBA 2K will feature three-time NBA Champion, four-time NBA MVP and avid NBA 2K gamer LeBron James on the cover of the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition.

Each phrase contains special meaning to James, including “Strive for Greatness,” “Driven,” and “Equality.”

“It’s humbling to be on the 20th anniversary cover of a game I’ve played and loved since I was a little kid,” said James. “We were able to do something really unique for the cover that represents everything that drives me and inspires me – from my family to where I come from and words I live by. I’m honored my journey can be part of this special time in 2K history and I’m excited for fans to see it.”

Ummm, what? "NBA 2K" debuted on the Dreamcast, which was released in 1999. This may be the 20th game in the series, but it's only the 19th anniversary. What are they going to celebrate next year?

Gonna laugh my ass off when the NBA & the NFL implode due to their political bullshit.

Much like car models, sports games are always a year ahead in terms of numbering. Next year's game will be 2K20, so they're celebrating the 20th year for this release.

Considering the fact that this was one of the most successful seasons the NBA has seen since it's inception, I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon.

That... doesn't make sense. We're talking about 2K19 here. It hasn't been 20 years since the first release (1999 - 2018), it's not the 2K20 SKU - these marketing people are just inventing an anniversary!

Edit: Oh! You mean they're celebrating the 20th game in the series! Well, yes, obviously, but they (and you) worded it differently. The 20th issue of anything is only the 19th anniversary.

You're kind of arguing semantics; they're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the series with the game that would be bearing the year of the 20th anniversary.

It ain't a big deal.
