Today, 2K announced that the 2022 WNBA All-Star, NCAA all-time triple-doubles leader and New York Liberty guard, Sabrina Ionescu, will grace the cover of the NBA® 2K24 WNBA Edition. The GameStop Exclusive edition is the third cover in NBA 2K franchise history to celebrate and elevate WNBA legends, now including a trailblazing up-and-coming star.

My brothers and I played NBA 2K as kids, making this moment a full-circle experience to join this exclusive list of basketball legends,” said Sabrina Ionescu. “Being in the company of some of the W’s greatest players is a dream come true.”
“Sabrina’s ascendance has been an absolute joy to watch, as she continues to showcase her skills on a nightly basis,” said Melissa Bell, Global Chief Marketing Officer at 2K. “As one of the next-generation of WNBA stars, Sabrina has proven to be a major influencer and driver for growing women’s basketball and the WNBA.
