Kyrie Irving unveiled the NBA Live 14 cover on his Twitter account today. It’s a simple cover that features Kyrie Irving with his hands presumably on his hips with a stern expression. The former Rookie of the Year and reigning Three-Point Shootout Champion can now add that cover to the list of accolades on his NBA resume.
“I’m so proud to be the face of this franchise as it makes its much-anticipated return,” Irving said. “I’ve been on the court with the development team and I’ve seen first-hand some of the amazing things EA SPORTS is doing with NBA LIVE 14. The fans are going to love it.”
They’ve added this new “BounceTek” ball physics that will put a greater emphasis on ball-handling in the game. That means another video game got more realistic and consequently I’ve gotten worse at another video game already.
“We couldn’t imagine a better cover athlete for our game than the dynamic, explosive Kyrie Irving,” added Daryl Holt, VP and GM of Basketball for EA SPORTS. “Kyrie is one of the best ball handlers in the league, and with our next-generation technology we can arm players with the ability to replicate his impressive on-court feats, as well as the amazing signature styles and abilities of other pros in NBA LIVE 14.”
