So it's decided. The French Tony Parker will be on the cover of EA Sports NBA LIVE 09. He beat out Deron Williams for the cover by a very small amount of votes.
When you go out to by your copy of NBA LIVE this year, you'll see the spurs star on the cover. This marks the first year that a European born player has been on the cover of the game. Parker is a two time all star, and he has three championship rings.
TP is an avid game player in his free time, he won the tournament of NBA LIVE 08 and he was quoted saying "I have been playing the NBA LIVE series since I started playing basketball". Parker has been on the cover of French version of the game 5 years running.
