I'll flat out admit it: I'm taking one for the team while Samit is at E3 and posting this. At least I know who Kobe Bryant is, so this post isn't going to be a complete failure.
But yes, Kobe Bryant has made it onto the cover of NBA 2K10 for the first time. If you're a big sports fan, you can go over to NBA 2K's website and vote for which Kobe Bryant cover you want to see on the final version of the game, which we've got down below in the gallery.
Now, a big question: does this actually matter?
