Your NBA 2K13 Cover Boys Are Official

What’s the easiest way to resolve a debate as to which basketball player should be featured on the cover of a video game? Just use three superstars. Per 2K Sports, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, and Blake Griffin will be the cover athletes for the game’s latest installment.

For the game’s last cover, a trio of Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson was used, so we’re guessing 2K thinks pretty highly of Durant, Rose and Blake. NBA 2K13, which is slated to come out Oct. 2, is projected to be a huge hit. And with (UPDATED) an MVP winner, three-time scoring champ, and the game’s most exciting dunker featured on the cover, the game is off to a good start.

And in case you missed it, check out this ad, which should get you even more excited for the game’s upcoming release.

  • Jaysturt915

  • Dbolling93

    Y’all need to pay attention before you post comments! “…with an MVP winner (ROSE), three time scoring champ (DURANT), and the most exciting dunker (GRIFFIN)”…so yes, you are right, there is only 1 MVP. -___-

  • Quisstacks

  • MikeHunt

    Blake Griffen is so overrated

  • Rashaunmitchell187

    D Rose!!

  • guest

    why not put there tony parker instead of D.Rose? IMO he deserves it, and he was playing the whole season and I think he played better.

  • Glarence Zhao

    im pretty sure lebron woulda been a better choice. he was finals mvp this year.

  • Kingofbball

    omg that’s shit!! what is with the three time mvp and this years finals winner and mvp LBJ?? he should be on the cover…..the big three or somethin’ but not rose mvp one time…durant…ok maybe he and lebron that would be ok but GRIFFIN?!?! why the hell griffin?? he’s wrong on the cover…..the cover is bullshit!!

  • Koathtyler

     tony parker has and can dunk. Youtube that shit

  • doeboy

    Its not all about LeBron James and the heat, the NBA is a business and these three guys on the cover bring a lot of money in, D-Rose has the number one selling jersey and has a big fan base, Durant is the most efficient scorer ive seen and Black Griffin is probably going to go down as one of the top 5 dunkers in NBA history.
