Simmons originates from Melbourne, Australia and began his noticeable career as an Australian rules football player who then went onto college basketball at LSU, before joining the NBA draft and receiving the number 1 overall pick. Simmons continued his career with more than 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists, resulting in him receiving the award 2017-2018 NBA Rookie of the Year award. On the cover we can see quotes close to Simmons' life, "Loyalty," "Family," "Melbourne," "Unstoppable," and "Triple Double."

Being born in Melbourne, Simmons has earned the featured cover art for NBA 2K19 but will only be enjoyed by Australians and New Zealand owners. The game will be coming with a double-sided inlay featuring Giannis Antetokounmpo, so swapping it around shouldn't provide much of an issue if you so choose. NBA 2K19 is set for release on September 11th on the PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. For further information visit the official NBA 2K website here.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
