Larry Bird, the Celtics legend and current president of the Indiana Pacers, is one of three NBA greats featured on the latest version of the popular NBA video game produced by 2K Sports.

NBA 2K12 features three different covers -- Bird, Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan.

The press release statement from 2K Sports:

"Bringing Michael Jordan to the virtual hardwood last year was a huge success for NBA 2K11; however, we didn't want to stop there," said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. "We're bringing 'His Airness' back to the NBA 2K franchise as part of a multi-year extended partnership, along with two other legendary icons - Larry Bird and Magic Johnson - for a special cover athlete collection representing the NBA's greatest heroes."

NBA 2K12 will be released Oct. 4. The cover art was created by Adam Larson.
