Just yesterday we learned that Michael Jordan will grace the cover of NBA 2K23, but it turns out he’s not the only one. Today 2K has revealed that Phoenix Mercury’s two-time Kia WNBA Finals MVP, three-time WNBA Champion, WNBA all-time leading scorer, and five-time Olympic gold medalist Diana Taurasi, along with Seattle Storm’s four-time WNBA Champion, thirteen-time WNBA All-Star, WNBA all-time assists leader, and five-time Olympic gold medalist, Sue Bird, will team up for the cover of NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition.
NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition will be available exclusively at GameStop only in the U.S. and Canada, and this is just the second cover in NBA 2K franchise history to celebrate WNBA athletes.
Celebrating Sue Bird’s and Diana Taurasi’s career-long commitments to securing equal opportunities for women athletes, NBA 2K is also partnering with the WNBA stars to donate $100,000 to Every Kid Sports, giving young people the opportunity to join youth basketball programs across the country. The donation will increase access to youth basketball by covering the registration fees for over 550 girls from income-restricted families. Every Kid Sports is a national nonprofit dedicated to helping children play recreational youth sports.
