Thank God there's no such thing as an NBA 2K curse (knocks on every piece of wood in the house), because the MVBeard James Harden made the cover of the newest edition, along with Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis. BEHOLD:

It's cold comfort to Rockets fans after the Rockets' loss in the Conference Finals (and Harden's runner-up finish in MVP voting), but for those of you who like video games AND the Rockets (I can imagine plenty of you fit this description), it's a lovely thing to have in the house. Even better, there are reportedly alternate versions with each of the cover athletes appearing solo. So if you don't want to be reminded of who bested Harden and the Rockets, you'll definitely want to pick up the Beard's special edition.
Meanwhile, Dwight Howard's requests to appear on the cover of Call of Duty remain unanswered.
