Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan will be the cover athlete on NBA 2K23.

It is only fitting that Michael Jordan will appear on the cover of NBA 2K23.

Though other athletes have worn the No. 23, nobody did it more triumphantly and more unapologetically than The GOAT of the NBA. Jordan famously went 6-for-6 in NBA Finals, helping the Chicago Bulls hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy six times.

They were never much of anything as a franchise before him and have been chasing what Jordan meant to them in the decades to follow.

You can pre-order the Michael Jordan Edition and Champion Edition of NBA 2K23 on July 7.

Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan will be the cover athlete on NBA 2K23

We are rapidly the 25th NBA season since Jordan’s Last Dance with the Bulls. It was Chicago’s second three-peat throughout the Bulls’ dynastic run with Jordan at the center of it. Chicago defeated Karl Malone, John Stockton and the rest of the Utah Jazz for the second NBA Finals in a row to win Championship No. 6. Jordan would retire for a second time after this championship run.

Though Jordan would unretire for a second time a few years later to play for the lowly Washington Wizards, his basketball legacy had been cemented. While other players have tried to overtake him in the pantheon of the sport in the last 25 years, there can only be one GOAT. Maybe one day there will be a professional basketball player who will eclipse what Jordan did in Chicago? Until that day…

While people over the age of 30 know all and well what Jordan meant to the sport of basketball, a younger generation grew up either idolizing Kobe Bryant or LeBron James. Bryant did win five championships when he played for the Los Angeles Lakers. James is now on his third team, hoping to add another ring or two before he completely falls out of his prime. He is forever chasing Jordan.

It made way too much sense for NBA 2K to make Jordan their featured athlete for NBA 2K23.

Eagles Rookie Jordan Davis Sounds Off on Viral Practice Rep

Getty Eagles DT Jordan Davis didn't mince words: his favorite thing to do is "hit" people on the football field.

Don’t believe the hype. That was the message from Jordan Davis regarding his viral rep against Cam Jurgens. The 6-foot-6, 340-pounder wasn’t trying to embarrass anybody at the Philadelphia Eagles’ live practice; honestly, Davis wished it never happened.

The clip wasn’t a true representation of what has been a grueling back-and-forth between Davis and Jurgens at training camp. The cameras just got a very one-sided rep, according to Davis. Those two guys are the future anchors of the offensive and defensive lines in Philly.

“I hate it honestly. I feel like it’s very one-sided,” Davis told reporters. “You see one rep but you don’t see Cam blocking me and getting me at practice, and getting me in the other reps. I always say looks can be deceiving. You know, one rep and it goes viral or whatever, but Cam is holding his own. He’s a very good player and it’s just good competition, it’s iron on iron, so you see the background of everything but don’t let the hype get to you.”

Jordan Davis on this rep: "I hate it honestly. I feel like it's very one-sided, you know, you see one rep but you don't see Cam blocking me and getting me at practice and getting me in the other reps. I always say looks can be deceiving." #Eagles #FlyEaglesFly https://t.co/xo4Raz5K7j

Video or not, the one thing there is no denying is Davis’ pure power. His freakish size and athleticism is going to force opponents to double-team him. Which will create an open path to the quarterback for someone else. Davis’ mere presence is going to unleash feared pass rushers like Brandon Graham, Javon Hargrave, Fletcher Cox, Derek Barnett, Josh Sweat, and Hasson Reddick.

“Two on me means somebody’s free,” Davis said. “Just to know that the guys are looking at me to be a good addition to the team makes me feel good because I feel like I’m bringing something important, that I’m able to contribute to this team. I’m not here to be the guy. I’m here to be a part of it. It takes all parts to get this car rolling and, hopefully, go to the promised land.”

Eagles See ‘Big, Explosive, Violent Man’

Davis has split reps at the nose tackle spot this summer with the ones and twos. He’s listed as Fletcher Cox’s backup on the depth chart. Don’t be fooled. Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon is going to treat him as a starter. And let the 2021 Outland Trophy winner make an impact.

“He’s a big, explosive, violent man that can win one-on-one,” Gannon told reporters on May 24. “He will definitely have a role in the passing game, and he will affect the quarterback in a good way. Excited about his skill set and what he can do in the run and pass game.”

Great quote here from Jordan Davis: "The technique is always going to save you. And when you mix in your God-given talent, which you may not know, and the technique together, then something beautful can flourish." #Eagles #FlyEaglesFly

Davis is working hard to carve out a spot, too. The physical part comes naturally; it’s the mental aspect he’s been repping over and over and over again.

“It’s a mental game,” Davis said. “They say football is 95% mental and 5% physical, so you have to learn all the ins and outs, all the technique-wise, and just push through mentally. It’s hot [at practice], there’s a lot of adversity, and you tend to get away from your technique when you’re a little tired. So, just being able to bounce back and to lean on my technique.”

Kelce, Jurgens Tough 1-2 Tandem

The legend of Jason Kelce keeps touching future football generations. He’s one of the best centers to ever do it, an intimidating presence when he’s staring across that line. He’s deceptively fast, according to Davis.

“Kelce’s fast, extremely quick,” Dais said. “It’s just one of those things, you have to get it in gear because you don’t know where he’s going to go. You can tell Kelce has a lot more experience. He knows how to work the edge blocks and everything. It’s just the experience.”

Observations from Day 4 of Eagles camp:

1) Jordan Davis got some run with the first-team defense. He's so big (6-6, 340), you couldn't even see Kelce from my vantage point when they were lined head-up. His combination of size and athleticism made him a handful in 1-on-1s.

Jurgens has been Kelce’s understudy. Davis can’t get a break, whether it’s battling Kelce on first team or Jurgens on second team.

“Cam is strong. He’s stout. He’s going to sit down,” Davis said. “So, you really have to make sure you place your hands [right], really on both of them, it’s kind of like a one-two tandem.”
