2K Sports announced today that it would be revealing the NBA 2K9 cover athlete at the pre-game show for game 1 of the NBA finals on June 5. The reveal will come from a 30 second TV spot scheduled to air during the pre-game show on ABC June 5th.

As part of the revealing of the athlete 2K is having a contest for fans of the game that lets them predict who the athlete will be and if correct they could win a free copy of the game and an autographed jersey. Sixteen NBA players are offered on the site as potential cover athletes to choose from.

"We're extremely excited to offer this online promotion to our loyal community of 2K Sports fans, as we think it's a fantastic opportunity for us to interact more closely with them through a refreshingly fun and rewarding experience," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "The NBA 2K franchise is king among basketball players and passionate fans who know and understand basketball. Revealing our cover athlete prior to Game One affords us a unique opportunity to capitalize on the anticipation surrounding the NBA Finals while simultaneously generating excitement for the release of NBA 2K9."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
