He may not be an MVP candidate, but he is no less a star than any of those guys. Kyrie Irving’s contributions to the game, and his stature within it, make him the perfect NBA 2K18 cover boy.

After adjusting to LeBron James’ return to Cleveland, Irving has found himself as an NBA player. He honed his scoring touch, becoming one of the league’s best finishers around the rim. He notched a career-high with 25.2 points per game during the regular season, and has come up with some clutch performances during the playoffs.

He’s dazzles the crowd with his ability to score, and is a regular on highlight reels with his peerless ability to dribble the ball. His work this season has been thrilling enough to deserve some recognition with the NBA 2K18 cover.

Is Kyrie Irving one of the flagship superstar... or an MVP candidate? No? Then he doesn’t deserve to be on the cover of NBA 2K18. 

Irving is a good player, but when you have players like Kawhi Leonard, James Harden and Russell Westbrook being considered for the NBA MVP, you would think one of them would get the honor instead.

Irving’s style of play is fan-pleasing, but so are the MVP candidates’. Westbrook is one of the most explosive players in the league, Harden’s offensive prowess is second to none and Leonard’s two-way play gets fans out of their seats.

Irving may not even be the most deserving cover boy on his team. LeBron James is the mega star of the NBA, and is the main reason Kyrie Irving has even sniffed the NBA Finals the last three years. Aside from James, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant could easily have been featured on the cover with little to no protest.

Irving may be on the cover this year, but with MVP candidates and other stars still in the NBA, he doesn’t deserve it.
