NBA 2K14's cover athlete is Miami Heat frontman Lebron James. It's the first video game to feature James on the cover, and the star will play some role in a new mode called "Pass to Greatness."

All pre-orders on Xbox 360 and PS3 will receive the King James Bonus Pack DLC: an extra 10,000 virtual currency, extra content for "Pass to Greatness" mode, instant unlock of Lebron James in Blacktop mode and a Lebron James signature skill for MyPlayer mode.

NBA 2K14 will be available for Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 1; Xbox One and PS4 versions are also in the works and expected to arrive alongside the new consoles.
