    Although we are just getting started in a heated playoff run, news for Virtual Hardwood Gamers hits that Harden will be one of 3 cover athletes for NBA 2K16.

    Probably not needed in the GARM, and this doesn't seem credible at all.

    None of those Instagram profiles actually posted those pics. All 3 pics have the exact same caption and have the same amount of likes. Call it fake.

    Harden might be on it, but this just doesn't like real to me.

    The instagram photos seem to be in game. This is not official yet, not likely til around next week or a bit afterwards.

    Reading the 2nd linked article:

    I'm a producer working on NBA 2K16. Stuff like this leaks every year—I wouldn't get too worked up about it. Go Rockets!

    Was hoping harden would be doing his "cooking" on the cover.

    Harden may end up on it but these are definitely NOT the official covers. Firstly, to the left of Harden, you have an image of McHale, which I'm sure they need different rights to have him on the cover, and secondly, the image of Harden on the right has him wearing a Thunder uniform.

    UPDATE: After thinking about, it actually makes sense, since next year's big feature is "Be the story", so I guess it makes sense to have images of the player's journey to present for each player in the background.

    On the Harden cover, directly to the right of his legs, is a picture of Harden in his OKC uniform.

    Could be a 2K meeting proof of concept.
    You know how 2K loves to get their cover players to participate in the social media campaign.

    Regardless of the authenticity of these, there isn't any NBA2K curse on cover athletes like the Madden curse, is there?
