ATLANTA (AP) — LeBron James será el encargado de elegir la música para un popular videojuego de básquetbol.

La compañía 2K Sports anunció el viernes que el astro del Heat de Miami seleccionó 20 canciones para la banda sonora del juego "NBA 2K14". El dos veces campeón de la NBA, y cuatro veces jugador más valioso de la liga, también aparecerá en la carátula del juego.

James dijo que es un honor ser el primer atleta que elige las canciones. Su amigo y famoso rapero Jay-Z fue el productor ejecutivo del videojuego del año pasado, que vendió más de 4,5 millones de copias.

"2K me está dando el control de algunos elementos importantes de NBA 2K14, incluyendo la banda sonora", dijo James en un comunicado. "Me encanta que soy el primer atleta que está en la carátula de NBA 2K que elige la música".

Algunas de las canciones en la banda son "Started From The Bottom" de Drake; "In the Air Tonight" de Phil Collins; y "Get Lucky" de Daft Punk con Pharrell Williams y Macklemore y Ryan Lewis. Además, aparece música de Jay-Z, Coldplay, Robin Thicke, The Black Keys, Eminem y Kanye West, entre otros artistas.

El videojuego saldrá a la venta el 1 de octubre.
