ATLANTA (AP) - LeBron James is taking some of his talents during the offseason to the best-selling basketball video game franchise as a music curator.
2K Sports announced Friday that the two-time NBA champion of the Miami Heat selected 20 songs for the soundtrack of the upcoming ``NBA 2K14.'' The league's four-time MVP is also the cover athlete of the popular video game.
James said in a statement that he's honored to be the first cover athlete to choose songs for the soundtrack. He follows his friend and Grammy-winning rapper Jay-Z, who was the executive producer of the last year's installment that sold more than 4.5 million copies.
The soundtrack features Jay-Z, Phil Collins, Drake, Coldplay, Robin Thicke and The Black Keys. The game is expected to go on sale Oct. 1.
