Russell Westbrook to Appear on NBA Live 16 Cover

NBA Live 16 Cover

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook will be the cover athlete for NBA Live 16, EA Sports announced.

EA Sports will reveal the first gameplay details during the EA press conference at E3 2015.

Westbrook came into his own while teammate Kevin Durant sat due to injury most of the season. The UCLA alum was named the MVP of the 2015 All-Star Game. He is a four-time all-star, 2014 scoring champion and Olympic gold medalist.

“Russell plays every game like he has something to prove,” Anthony Stevenson, vice president of Marketing for EA Sports, said in a press release. “Our team is building NBA Live the exact same way, so we’re thrilled to have him as an ambassador for our game.”

NBA Live 16 is currently in development at Orlando-based EA Tiburon. No release date for the game has been announced.

Quick Take

Westbrook is somewhat of a controversial figure in the NBA. He is praised for his athleticism and ability, but he is also criticized for his shot selection and is often in the news because of his fashion statements. That is what makes him a perfect choice for the cover of NBA Live 16.
