WBNA star, Candace Parker is making big moves off the court as she has just become the first female basketball player on the cover of NBA 2K22.
The Chicago Sky star will appear on the cover for the WNBA 25th anniversary special edition that will be released Sept. 10.
Parker joins Luka Doncic, who was named the cover athlete for the game’s regular edition, and Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – who were recognized as cover athletes for the NBA 75th anniversary edition.
While the WNBA will be on an Olympic break for the next month, Parker – a two-time Olympic gold medalist will be commentating the medal rounds at the Tokyo Games.
Meanwhile Parker shared her excitement and gratitude with her fans via Twitter.
Extremely proud and humbled to be the first female cover athlete in the history of @NBA2K
I’m honored to work with a company that’s investing in women and betting on us to succeed. I’m hopeful there will be many more badass females to follow 💪🏽💪🏽 pic.twitter.com/WJan4YE7Qt
