Kobe Bryant... A Knick?!?

Kobe Bryant in a New York Knicks jersey is now a reality... in video game reality, that is.

2K Sports recently announced that Kobe Bryant will be the on the cover of NBA 2K10, and fans have the chance to choose from four versions of Kobe on the cover. The options include a lay-up cover:

 an on-the-dribble cover:

 and a "hero pose" cover:

The Kobe as a Knick cover is just for fun, according to 2K Sports. (Sorry New York Knicks fans!)

NBA and video game fans have a chance to vote which will be the official cover of NBA 2K10. They set-up a voting site at http://www.2ksports.com/vote/ and the deadline for voting is on June 15, 2009. A day after that, the winning cover will be announced. As of this writing, the "hero pose" cover is leading the voting.

Kobe has been upbeat about NBA 2K10. “I’ve been playing sports video games for as long as I can remember and honestly, I’ve never seen one come so close to replicating real basketball. What 2K Sports has done is truly incredible and I’m proud to be a partner with them and on the cover of NBA 2K10,” said Bryant.
