He may have had his MVPuppet, but after losing the Eastern Conference Finals to the Orlando Magic, LeBron James likely missed out on donning the cover of EA Sports’ NBA Live 10.
While there was no guarantee that James would have been the selection, Los Angeles’ Kobe Bryant was the chosen cover boy for 2K Sports’ NBA 2K10.
Given Dwight Howard’s recent ascension into the national spotlight over the past year — thanks to the costume show that is the All-Star Slam Dunk Contest — the selection of Howard makes sense.
