Also known as Dame D.O.L.L.A, Logo Lillard, and Sub Zero, Damian Lillard is one of the very few players in the NBA that dominates in the last minutes of the 4th Quarter.

He owns two of the super-rare walk-off 3-pointers in the NBA playoffs including the legendary 37-foot Game 5 winner over Paul George to send the Oklahoma City Thunder packing in the 2019 NBA playoffs.

Lillard is also one of the finest rappers in the NBA. 2K noted that he regularly drops bars in the music studio which matches very well with this year's NBA 2K21 theme—Everything is Game.

Previously, Damian Lillard was the cover athlete for NBA 2K Online 2.

This is a special moment for me in my NBA career, said Lillard. I've been a fan of NBA 2K for years and love how they represent all aspects of basketball culture. I’ve been playing 2K my whole life and I'm honored to join the other NBA greats who have been on the cover. I'm grateful to all my fans and can’t wait for everyone to experience this game later this year.

2K added that as the cover for NBA 2K21 on current-generation platforms, players around the world will see Lillard's skywalking dunk on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, and Google Stadia.

There are a lot of great players in the NBA today, but Damian Lillard has done a particularly standout job of representing the current generation of NBA superstar, stated Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K. From his cultural influence, musical success, off the court leadership, and on-court domination, he's the perfect fit for our cover of NBA 2K21 on current-generation platforms; we're honored to have him.

Apart from being on the cover of NBA 2K, Lillard will also partner through 2K Foundations, 2K's program to support underserved communities by revitalizing basketball courts and community centers across the nation, to renovate a site in his hometown of Oakland, CA for the local community.

Tomorrow, 2K will reveal the 
next-generation version of NBA 2K21 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

More info about the next-generation version of the iconic NBA game will be revealed on July 2.
