Blake Griffin is GARBAGE (except for Dunking)!!

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

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?

2K should have went with these 3 instead

King James
Wade
Bosh

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.

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.

Should have put refs in Heat uniforms.
Sitdown  +   1034d 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.
guitarded77  +   1034d 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.

Cover is fine as is, not need to shit on a great cover.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1034d 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

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.

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.

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.

NBA Live 13 Must Have King James.
KMCROC  +   1034d ago
King weasel won a ring cause of Dwade, cause on his own he suck.ed ass.
Sitdown  +   1034d 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?

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.

LOL

45pts Eastern Conference Finals Game 6, Trip-Doub NBA Finals Game 5, that is all I have to say.
JoNaZ_RG  +   1034d 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.
Drake117  +   1034d 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.
Sitdown  +   1034d ago
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.
bahabeast  +   1034d ago
live 13 has lebron on it
batmandarkknight  +   1034d ago
this shouldve been the cover. best moment this season. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
CrzyFooL  +   1034d ago
WAT
JoNaZ_RG  +   1034d ago
Lebron James should make it to the cover. The hardest working NBA player at this moment. Whoever think the opposite is just hating, because Heat are the Champs '12.
Tonester925  +   1034d ago
Do you live in Florida? Have you been to any of their games before? Were you a fan before Lebron came or are you a Lebron fan?
JoNaZ_RG  +   1034d ago
FYI I have lived in Orlando, Florida, have always been a Miami and Lakers fan. And liked Miami way before Lebron joined it.
Tonester925  +   1034d ago
I have to get the Kevin Durant one
CPTN MITCHELL  +   1034d ago
Nba live 13 and king James is a good idea cause both the game and him suck!!!!
jek7  +   1034d ago
blake on the cover? blake's dunk on players is usually an offensive foul because he is sticking his left arm to block an opponent so i think he's a dirty player who only knows how to dunk and no talent whatsoever on the post. durant and rose nonetheless is a great pick

and people should stop complaining about the cover of a game. it's just a cover it does not make a game. i pity the people who buy a game based on their cover. usually the better game sells more and the cover has little to no effect on the sales
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   1034d ago
I think they should just put LeBron on the cover I think it would create a lot of buzz
