‘NBA 2K18 Legend Edition’: What’s In It?

The new NBA 2K Legend Edition was announced today and NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal will grace the cover. The news was confirmed in a comical YouTube video with Shaq thanking everyone but it is revealed longtime teammate turned rival Kobe Bryant was actually writing the script. 2K has not revealed who will be on the standard edition cover for 2K18, taking over the spot from Paul George.

Kobe was previously on the cover of NBA 2K10 and was last year’s Legend Edition cover athlete. Shaq was previously the cover star of NBA 2K6 and 2K7, following Allen Iverson’s long run.

There are two editions of the Legend Edition: Legend Edition and Legend Edition Gold along with the standard edition. The regular Legend Edition will feature Shaq in his Miami Heat days while the Gold will put Shaq in his gold Lakers jersey. Each Legend Edition will get you a bunch of Shaq-related items but the Gold will get you something extra. If you buy either of the Legend editions, you will get early access to the game starting September 15. We hope you’re a big Shaq fan because you’ll see a lot of Shaq-related content to follow. Here’s what edition will include:
