3. NBA 2K16 covers leaked

Basketball fans will be pleased to hear that Polygon has obtained a picture of all three alternate covers for NBA 2K16, this year’s installment of the acclaimed basketball series. Each year, as with many sports games, one or more star players wind up on the cover of the game. The three players who have the honor this year are Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, James Harden of the Houston Rockets, and Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Another detail is that the game’s cover proclaims it to be “a Spike Lee joint,” which is how the director’s films are usually referred to on the posters and marketing materials. What role Lee had in the game’s development is unknown, although Lee is a prominent basketball fan.

The game has no official release date yet, but previous installments in the series have generally come out the first Tuesday of October.
