Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder didn't win the NBA Finals this year, but he did get the honor of sharing the cover for NBA 2K13 with Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose.
2K Sports announced the cover athletes, which represent the "New Dynasty" of NBA Legends.
“There are many young superstars in today’s NBA, but we’ve selected three incredible athletes for the cover of NBA 2K13 that
represent the NBA well,” said Jason Argent, vice president of
marketing for 2K Sports. “It’s clear to us that Blake, Derrick and Kevin
are the most deserving guys to inherit the NBA 2K cover from Jordan, Magic and Bird.”
NBA 2K13 will be released Oct. 2 in North America and Oct. 5 internationally for the Xbox 360 and PS3. A Wii U version will be available during the holiday season.
And since we are on the subject of cover athletes, which Detroit Piston would you like to see on a cover? Brandon Knight? Greg Monroe? Whoever they draft this week?
