NBA 2K players are freaking out over Kevin Durant joining the Warriors

NBA players across the league received some unfortunate news Monday: Kevin Durant, the 2014 NBA MVP, is joining a team that lost nine games in the regular season and was one victory away from a second consecutive NBA title. After Durant announced his decision, the Warriors became 2/3 betting favorites to win in Las Vegas.

Gamers waiting to see how the rosters will fill out ahead of the release of NBA 2K17 are not exactly looking forward to playing online against a team that features Kevin Durant and Steph Curry. The Warriors essentially play a version of "videogame basketball" already, with their reliance on the three-point shot and preposterous plays from stars, and Stephen Curry has become such a good shooter in real life that 2K struggled to accurately represent him in the game without breaking everything. Adding Durant in the mix is going to make Golden State, already the most-played team in online multiplayer, almost unfair to play against. 







As of June, here were the Warriors’ in-game ratings:

Stephen Curry: 96

Klay Thompson: 90

Kevin Durant: 94

Draymond Green: 89

Andre Iguodala: 79
