Jayson’s emotions stemmed from his childhood memories, where he remembers playing the game. So, its like a full circle for him, from playing the game to being on the cover! “I grew up at my mom’s house playing 2K with my best friends and my cousin and dreaming about being in the game one day and then being on the cover.
