Shaquille O’Neal claimed that the late Kobe Bryant will be on the cover of NBA 2K21 next year.

The icon of the Los Angeles Lakers believes that the game should consider doing “Kobe challenges.”

“There is going to be Kobe. You don’t even have to worry about that. Definitely going to be Kobe. And I don’t know what they’re going to do with the money, but they’re going to do the right thing. Kobe’s family does the right thing.

I think that would be brilliant, the kids would eat it up, he’s definitely a big inspiration to all the kids and an inspiration to my kids. So I’m sure the kids would eat it up…but you can’t be giving your ideas away on your podcast [laughs]… you know somebody’s listening. Be careful,” O’Neal told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson on the “Scoop B” Radio podcast.
