The covers of NBA 2K25 feature the radiant Jayson Tatum and A'ja Wilson. Tatum is the featured athlete on the standard edition, while both champions appear on the All-Star edition's cover.

This heralds yet another step forward for women's basketball.

"The NBA 2K25 cover spotlights my achievements and signifies the continuous rise of the WNBA fanbase," Wilson mentioned in a statement. "The effort to include more WNBA players in NBA 2K25, mirroring their unique style and attitude, has been truly inspiring. I'm elated for fans to encounter this in the game."

Both Tatum and Wilson have had astounding achievements over the past year. Tatum's leadership drove the Celtics to defeat the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, securing the franchise's 18th championship title. Moreover, he recently inked an unprecedentedly large contract in NBA history.


On the other hand, Wilson's stellar performance pushed the Las Vegas Aces to an incredible 34-6 regular-season record in 2023, culminating in consecutive WNBA titles. Her exceptional play saw her crowned the 2023 WNBA Finals Most Valuable Player. Continuing with her impressive form, she currently tops the 2024 WNBA season with 27.0 points and 2.7 blocks per game. Additionally, her average of 10.9 rebounds per game is only second to Angel Reese.
