Shaquille O’Neal will be on cover of NBA 2K18 Legend Edition


He is the MDE. The Diesel. The Big Aristotle. The Big Cactus. Superman. Shaq Daddy.

He’s also a Hall of Famer and still one of the faces of the NBA.

And Shaquille O’Neal will be on the cover of NBA 2K18 Legend Edition when it comes out this fall, 2K sports announced today.

“I want to thank NBA 2K for their continuous support of my basketball and broadcast career,” O’Neal. “I’m excited to be on the cover of the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition and I hope my fans have a blast playing it up big man style and re-creating my most legendary in-game moments!”

This is Shaq’s third time on an NBA 2K cover, for those of you counting such things. If you’re trying to get people’s attention on the cover, hard to go wrong with this call.

Gamers who pre-order the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition will receive special Shaq memorabilia, in-game content, and Early Tip-Off Access beginning September 15, 2K announced.
