Kyrie Irving on the Cover of NBA Live 14

by June 11, 2013

It was revealed on Monday that Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving will grace the cover of the latest edition of the NBA Live video game series. They’ll be facing some competition, to say the least. Per the Plain Dealer (via FanSided): “During the EA Games presentation at E3 (Monday), Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving came out on to the stage to help unveil the return of NBA Live 14. Of course, EA Sports had to be dramatic, so they used a slam poet to hype up the crowd and get the buzz going. Irving joined executive producer Sean O’Brien to help introduce the game and the new “Bounce Tech” system which makes ball handling the top priority. For the first time in the series’ history, the ball will separate from the players hands on every bounce which will allow another level of strategy and creativity.”
