Anthony Davis, Dwyane Wade land covers of ‘NBA 2K20’

first_imgIt’s rare for a player to appear on the cover of a video game series multiple times, but the new star of the Lakers has done just that within a span of only four years.Six-time NBA All-Star Anthony Davis has been selected to appear on the cover of the Standard and Deluxe Editions of “NBA 2K20,” which releases on Sept. 6.MORE: LeBron James no longer single-best player according to ‘2K’Davis was also on the cover of “NBA 2K16,” although that was a year in which Stephen Curry and James Harden also had their own covers for the game. It was random as to which player consumers would receive on their purchased copy (an insert was included with the others so they could be switched out, however). It seems unlikely that the cover curse attributed to “NBA 2K” will afflict Davis and the Lakers. That curse has seen players such as LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Paul George, Kyrie Irving get traded or leave in free agency within a year after appearing on the cover.This year’s honor of representing the Legend Edition goes to Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. Despite an illustrious 16-year career, it’s the first time Wade has made the cover of an “NBA 2K” game. He was instead featured on the cover of the competition with “NBA Live 06.”The Standard Edition of “NBA 2K20” will be sold for $60, the Deluxe for $80, and the Legend for $100. Pre-orders will include additional Virtual Currency, cards for use in MyTeam Mode, and various extras for created MyPlayer characters.Bryan Wiedey posts sports gaming news and analysis daily at Pastapadre.com, is co-founder of the sports gaming site HitThePass.com, hosts the “Press Row Podcast” and can be reached on Twitter @Pastapadre.last_img read more

Melan pipped in McEvoy play-off

first_img England teenager Melan Dhaubhadel tied for the prestigious U18 Peter McEvoy Trophy at Copt Heath Golf Club, only to be pipped in a play-off.The title went to Ireland’s Tom McKibbin, who drove into a bunker on the second extra hole, but managed to get his ball greenside and then chipped in for a birdie three to win.Dhaubhadel, from Calcot Park Golf Club in Reading, had a birdie putt from about 20ft away to keep the play-off alive. However it failed to drop, as did the attempt of the third play-off member, Aaron Marshall, also from Ireland.Dhaubhadel, who trains with England Golf’s Thames Valley regional squad and the BB&O elite squad, commented: “I wanted to win and I gave it my best shot. I played really well so I can’t be too disheartened.”For him, the highlight of the championship was the second round, where he shot both his personal best and the low-round of the tournament with his seven-under 64. “It was just good course management and good decisions,” he said.Together with his opening 68 and his 74, 71 in rounds three and four, it gave him a 72-hole total of seven–under.Now, the 18-year-old looks forward to a busy season with his next tournament date in next weekend’s West of England Stoke Play Championship at Saunton, Devon.Click here for full scores Tags: boys’ golf, elite golf, Junior Golf 18 Apr 2019 Melan pipped in McEvoy play-off last_img read more
