9. Kevin Durant
Game: NBA 2K12
2K Sports has never gotten Kevin Durant's player model to look quite right.
Part of it is down to his freakish wingspan and part of it is down to his tremendously lanky frame, but the 2K versions of Durant have never truly conveyed the real thing's long-limbed visual appeal. But that doesn't really matter when they've captured his otherworldly game so well. Maybe I'm crazy, but I think in NBA 2K13 they had to nerf his shooting motion a bit to level the playing field-his 2K12 shot was so buttery smooth and automatic that it was practically gamebreaking.
And that was when he wasn't putting it on the floor, which he could do with equal aplomb. Put it this way: Durant is notoriously squirrelly about his height. Officially listed by the NBA at 6'9", he's pegged by Draft Express at 6'10.25" with a nearly 7'5" wingspan. So maybe it's a good thing that 2K hasn't been able to truly bring those pterodactyl-esque proportions into the game to go with his silky shot and fearsome finishing. It just might be the video game basketball apocalypse.
