NBA Live 16 has found their cover man to replace last year’s Damian Lillard, Oklahoma City Thunder Point Guard, Russell Westbrook. After coming off a monster season where he had multiple 40 point games, 11 triple doubles (10+ points, 10+ rebounds, 10+ assists), and was the All-Star Game MVP. Now add gracing the cover of NBA Live 16 to his list of achievements this year.
EA Sports VP of Marketing had this to say about Westbrook, “Russell Westbrook is a player who can do it all, and we can’t imagine a better fit for the cover of NBA LIVE 16. NBA LIVE 16 is all about self-expression, and who better embodies that than Westbrook, both on and off the court? Russell plays every game like he has something to prove. Our team is building NBA LIVE the exact same way, so we’re thrilled to have him as an ambassador for our game.”
