We all know how Giannis graced the cover of NBA 2K19. Now, it looks like he may be making another splash in the video game environment. Take a look at what the official Madden account just tweeted:

First, we see “Family over EVERYTHING” grace the screen. Next, we see a player wearing No. 34 leap to make an athletic catch. Then, we see what’s pretty clearly Giannis’ signature.
