‘NBA 2K20’ Release Date, Gameplay: Kawhi Leonard in the Cover Following Toronto Raptors' Historic Championship Win?

As everyone should know by now, the Toronto Raptors denied Golden State Warriors’ bid for a three-peat championship win last Thursday and Kawhi Leonard contributed so much to that victory. This leads to the speculation that he could be chosen as the “NBA 2K20” cover athlete.

Developer Visual Concepts and publisher 2K Games have yet to make any official announcement about “NBA 2K20.” There were some leaked photos and information recently, but they seem to be doing a pretty good job in keeping a lid on their choice for the cover athlete (or athletes) this year.

However, if the main cover of “NBA 2K20” would feature Leonard, it is very likely that many fans would be on board with that. Some argue that the 27-year-old basketball pro is not one of the most animation-worthy players on the court. But his numbers in the NBA 2018-19 season speaks volumes.

His last days with the San Antonio Spurs were riddled with recurrent injuries and a long time spent on the sideline. But Leonard’s transfer to the Raptors was what practically made their first-ever franchise championship win possible. That dramatic turning point alone would make a great case for 2K Games to have him as the face of “NBA 2K20.”

If this speculation becomes a reality in “NBA 2K20,” it would be Leonard’s first-time ever to be on the cover of the video game franchise. After his first year with the Raptors, he clocked in with season averages 26.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game and was named the NBA Finals MVP this year.

Meanwhile, one aspect of “NBA 2K20” that has taken shape for some months now is the possibility of including WNBA players for the first time. 2K Games has yet to set the record straight about this. But there were several pieces of evidence that athletes like Atlanta Dream guard Renee Montgomery and Las Vegas Aces forward A’ja Wilson could be part of the franchise soon. “NBA 2K20” is anticipated to launch in early September.
