EA have announced that NBA megastar Kyrie Irving will be the face sitting on the cover of their forthcoming NBA LIVE 14 title.
Irving is a hell of a player, chosen by first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by a Cleveland side still smarting from The Decision which saw Lebron James depart for Miami. He is a multiple award winner as a rookie as well as being a dab hand at three point shots – the reigning Foot Locker 3-point champion, no less.
“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.”
“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.”
NBA LIVE 14 will hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the Autumn.
