If you’re not an NBA nut like I am, then there’s a chance (or not given it’s pretty big news) that Cleveland Cavalier star Kyrie Irving has been traded to the Boston Celtics. Needless to say, this has caused quite an issue with the upcoming NBA 2K18 game, since, y’know, Kyrie is the NBA 2K18 cover player.
In past shots, he was donning his old wine and gold Cleveland Cavs uniform. That’s about to change now, though. Over on Twitter, the official NBA 2K account tweeted our first look at Kyrie wearing his Boston Celtics uniform.

There is a caveat however, since it’s also said that this will be “released at a later.” Cleveland fans, you might want to hold off on buying your physical copy of the game until then. Or maybe just get it and print out a new cover once it’s out? Thankfully, I’m fine with whatever cover so it’s not affecting me much.
NBA 2K18 will dribble out this coming week on September 15, for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch and PC.
