Today, EA revealed that Oklahoma City Thunder point-guard Russell Westbrook has been named the cover athlete for NBA Live 16

The four-time All-Star had a league leading 11 triple-doubles this season. He was the NBA scoring champion in 2014 and has won two gold medals for the US men's national basketball team. 

"Russell Westbrook is a player who can do it all, and we can't imagine a better fit for the cover of NBA Live 16," said EA Sports VP of Marketing Anthony Stevenson. "NBA Live 16 is all about self-expression, and who better embodies that than Westbrook, both on and off the court? Russell plays every game like he has something to prove. Our team is building NBA Live the exact same way, so we're thrilled to have him as an ambassador for our game."

NBA Live 16 will come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year. EA will show off gameplay at their E3 press conference on Monday, June 15 at 1:00 p.m. PT.
