this should have been the cover

ATi_Elite1404d ago

Blake Griffin is GARBAGE (except for Dunking)!!

Scratch out Blake and put in Rajon Rhondo instead. KD and DRose are cool!

Drake1171403d ago

Sorry dude 20 and 10 is far from garbage for a PF(or for any position). What do u want him to shoot 3s and pull up jumpers as a big man or something?

NYC_Gamer1404d ago

2K should have went with these 3 instead

King James
Wade
Bosh

stickskills1404d ago

They want to reach a wider audience though. Not to mention putting those three on the cover would cause everyone to say the Heat are "cheap" in 2K13.

Drake1171403d ago

I love Lebron but these days there's a whole lot more ppl that hate him then love him. So much so that it might actually effect sales.

gaden_malak1404d ago

Should have put refs in Heat uniforms.

Sitdown1404d ago

Yeah... Cause it was because of them the ball went in the basket. Had nothing to do with the refs... But OKC not taking advantage of the post.

guitarded771404d ago

Well, they were wearing OKC uniforms during the SA/OKC series so it would just confuse potential buyers.

On topic: They took the safe route a picked the the three big/young stars. That's okay with me because I don't give a crap about box art.

KMCROC1404d ago

Cover is fine as is, not need to shit on a great cover.

Outside_ofthe_Box1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

Do you know how many Lebron haters are out there? And because there are King LBJ haters, they in turn hate the team he is on and everyone on it too.

2K obviously chose "lovable" NBA stars on their cover on purpose. This also further hurts EA's chances on Live. xD

JoNaZ_RG1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

I agree with you 100%. It should be King James, Wade, and Bosh. They beat OKC badly so they deserve that spot. And if these 3 don't make it to the cover is because the person in charge with the game cover is a Miami Heat hater.

Hicken1404d ago

That as the stupidest comment I've read all day.

No, really.

In the end, it's a business decision. Which players do you think are gonna get more sales: the three from Miami, or three from different teams that people don't hate?

Yeah, I thought so.

I really don't know how I feel about this cover; great players indeed, but all Blake does is dunk nothing special there.

StarFox1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

your right about that all he does is dunk, he can barely post up, barely has any sort of presence on defense, can't even shoot a mid range jumper and can't shoot free throws for shit. but he was pretty clutch when it came to free throws in the playoffs i admit.

black9111404d ago

NBA Live 13 Must Have King James.

KMCROC1404d ago

King weasel won a ring cause of Dwade, cause on his own he suck.ed ass.

Sitdown1404d ago (Edited 1404d ago )

Name one player who on his own won an NBA title. Funny how LBJ sucked without Wade but won MVP without him, and made it to the finals without him...... Did Cleveland make the playoffs when LeBron left?

Gambit_the_White1404d ago

Hmm, seems like you're just a LeBron hater, because he was mindblowing throughout the playoffs. Wade himself sucked throughout most of the games, shot HORRIBLY, had a couple of good games. However, the main reason they won was because of Shane Battier, Mike Miller and Mario Chalmers. If those three hadn't had those crazy games, they wouldn't have won it, because even though LeBron was amazing, no one wins a championship on his own.

Outside_ofthe_Box1404d ago

LOL

45pts Eastern Conference Finals Game 6, Trip-Doub NBA Finals Game 5, that is all I have to say.

JoNaZ_RG1404d ago

@KMCROC,

Dwade is respected for all of his accomplishment. But King James is the total package. Didn't you just watch the finals. He carried the game.

Drake1171403d ago

OK...think. Look at Cleveland when they had Lebron...yes...now look at them the last 2 seasons. Plus idk if u were even watching the playoffs, wade really struggled, it was Lebron carrying.

Hmmm... So grab a player from the West coast, Midwest, and East Coast....guess it makes sense since none of these players are really disliked.
