“I’ve been a fan of NBA 2K13 cover athlete Kevin Durant for years and to share a video game cover with one of basketball’s elite players is a big honor,” said Price.

“Fans can expect to experience 2K Sports’ signature authenticity throughout this new package, from the sting of my fastball to Kevin’s clutch shooting.”

“Being named as a face of NBA 2K13 was an honor, but adding a Cy Young winner like David makes the cover that much more memorable,” said Durant.

“Fans can expect the ultimate sports package with him and me gracing 2K Sports’ latest bundle.”
