Chicago Sky’s Candace Parker will be the first woman on the cover of ‘NBA 2K’

“I’m hopeful there will be many more badass females to follow,”

she wrote.
Parker will be featured on the North American GameStop Exclusive Edition of the game celebrating the WNBA’s 25th anniversary, while the NBA’s Luka Dončić will be featured on the Standard Edition. Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will be featured on another edition recognizing the 75th anniversary of the NBA.
Parker attributed the new cover to the growing popularity of the WNBA. The most recent season saw ratings for the WNBA finals go up 15%, and players in the league have become increasingly visible.
“To be part of this historic cover is a testament to the growth and rising popularity of the women’s game,” Parker said in her statement.

“I’m proud to be the first female cover athlete to be the face of NBA 2K.”
The game is currently available for preorder and will be released on September 10.
