Here’s NBA 2K18’s one-word response to its Kyrie Irving-Cavaliers cover

Some tweets age better than others, and this August 7 NBA 2K18 tweet already needs an update.

After news broke Tuesday night that the Cavaliers sent NBA 2K18 cover athlete Kyrie Irving to the Celtics, the video game’s Twitter account had a one-word reaction: “Whoops.”

The Irving cover was already featured on the game’s website:

In exchange, the Celtics sent Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, and the Nets’ 2018 first-round pick to the Cavs.

With the game available by preorder September 15, it wasn’t immediately clear which jersey Irving will be wearing on the cover in less than a month.
