Kevin Durant: Stephen Curry ‘is terrible’ in NBA2K

Stephen Curry may not quite be a better offensive player than LeBron James, but he’s certainly one of the game’s top shooters.

Evidently, those skills didn’t translate to the video game version of Curry’s persona.

Speaking at an event in New York to promote the latest release of NBA2K, Kevin Durant was asked which players he enjoys playing as in the game. And, with Curry on stage next to him, he wasn’t afraid to be completely honest.

“The thing is, I can’t shoot with Steph,” Durant said.

“That’s what everybody’s telling me,” Curry added.

“I can’t play well, he’s terrible in the game,” Durant said.

“They say it’s hit or miss with the timing on my jumper,” Curry said. “And I can’t figure out my own jumper.”

“He’s a 30 percent shooter in my game,” Durant said.

NBA 2K15 Screenshots (Official 2K shots – gamescom 2014)

2K have released a NBA 2K15 gamescom screenshot pack. They look absolutely stunning. Click for the 1080p versions. (Note: Even the larger pictures have been heavily compressed. The originals weigh in at a blog/browser-unfriendly 25mb per shot! I’ve tried not to loose too much in the compression process, but it is worth remembering that there is always some quality drop when shrinking them down. So yes, the originals actually look better!).

#YourTimeHasCome

The release date for NBA 2K15 is now just a couple of months away (October 10th). I haven’t really given the 2014/15 season NBA 2K game much coverage yet, so here’s the official NBA 2K15 cover, and a still from the official 2K15 launch video.

As we can see; Kevin Durant is the cover star, the number of Euroleague teams has been increased to 25 (up from 14 – see screenshot below for a full list) with the in-game music now chosen by Pharrell Williams.

Your Time Has Come

This screenshot provides us with a bit more information, as well as the game release date it features the hashtag (#YourTimeHasCome), as well as information on the “Kevin Durant MVP” pre-order bonus pack (not available on Playstation Store, we’re told), comprising of 5K VC, “My TEAM” (or “MyTEAM”, depending on which paragraph you believe) card packs and some exclusive MyPlayer leg sleeves (!?!).

The choice of an international My TEAM player certainly seems to reflect the global appeal of NBA (2K), with prominent international NBA players chosen to represent their respective countries. Perhaps this is an indication that 2K have incorporated some international features into the game? A My Team international multiplayer mode? The chance to represent your country while player My Player perhaps? (or maybe I’m reading too much into a marketing ploy).

I’ll post more news as I get it, in the meantime I’ll be posting a retrospective look at NBA 2K14 (both versions; current and next gen), as well as some hopes for the 10th October release in the coming days.
