Mere hours before the 2017 NBA Finals tip off, 2K Sports has announced Kyrie Irving as the cover athlete for NBA 2K18. This marks Irving’s second video game cover, and it’s the first time a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers has graced the front of the game; LeBron James was chosen as the cover athlete for NBA2K14, but was a member of the Miami Heat at the time. Irving also covered NBA Live 2014.

Irving isn’t the only athlete that will appear on NBA2K18, though, since the franchise has also placed Shaquille O’Neal on the Legend Edition cover. The cover just adds to Irving’s accolades as the ankle-breaking guard is an NBA champion, 4x all-star, Olympic gold medalist, and now the cover athlete for NBA2K18.

While the game doesn’t officially drop until September 15, you can preorder it via GameStop now.

Check out the official cover for the standard edition below:
