NBA superstar DeMar DeRozan has plenty to brag about going into the 2017-2018 basketball season. The Toronto Raptors stud has become the first-ever athlete featured on an NBA 2K Canadian cover.

This week, buzz developed about DeRozan earning his own NBA 2K18 cover.

DeRozan has since responded to landing the huge honor.

Last month, rap veteran Fabolous saluted NBA 2K18 stud Kyrie Irving.

In early June, NBA 2K formally announced its upcoming game’s cover athlete.

Thank-you #2KSports #NBA2K for the amazing surprise! Can't wait for #NBA2K18 to drop! #KyrieIrving
