Today is the worldwide release for NBA 2K10.
Jump for links to cover variants for your printer or desktop plus a Warriors NBA 2k cover rewind!
It's become a tradition here at Golden State of Mind that I honor our Warriors team alongside our favorite NBA basketball game, the 2K Basketball Series with a variant cover for our loyal fans. We've been doing this for 3 seasons now. For this season, 2K Sports let fans custom create their own covers. The last 2 seasons, I recall having to redesign, cut and paste a convincing looking 2K cover. This season, you can grab a high-res photoshop template with the entire cover in Photoshop layers. All you need to do is paste in your favorite player- folks got it made easy now! I've seen a handful of beautiful pieces I couldn't even compete with but appreciate with tremendous respect. I've also seen a handful of cut and paste jobs that weren't as exciting as others.
For me, I just want to do my thing and have fun with an idea we tried out 3 seasons ago that our fans seem to enjoy. I know there are some issues with Monta Ellis, but he seems to be one of our driving forces right now, hence the cover spotlight. I wanted to do a Stephen Curry or Anthony Randolph spotlight but there just isn't enough hi-res material out there for me to use. (I'll get them next year though!)
I also threw in a second cover with our bigs on deck (Ronny Turiaf, Andris Biedrins, Randolph and Brandan Wright) for some added fun and flavor. Anyways, you know the drill, each cover is print ready and yours to enjoy. Just copy it on your desktop and print away.... for FREE! Enjoy and I'll see you online for some 2K basketball!
