While we don't know yet when NBA 2K21 will be released, we do know that they will feature three different cover athletes. One of those athletes is Blazers star Damian Lillard.
After learning of the feat, Lillard expressed his gratitude.
Via Bleacher Report:
"This is a special moment for me in my NBA career. I've been a fan of NBA 2K for years and love how they represent all aspects of basketball culture. I'm an avid 2K player so I'm honored to join the other NBA greats who have been on the cover. I'm grateful to all my fans and can't wait for everyone to experience the game later this year."
Also from Bleacher Report:
Lillard will be on the cover of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC and Google Stadia systems. 2K will announce PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X covers Wednesday, along with additional information on the game and pre-order availability Thursday.
For the season, Lillard was averaging a career high in points at 28.9 and assists with 7.8 before the season was postponed due to the coronavirus.
