NBA 2K 13 pulled out all the stops and have landed Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, and Blake Griffin for this year’s cover. Not a bad group of folks.

“Being crowned as one of the NBA 2K13 cover athletes is a great way to cap off what has been an amazing season,” Durant said in a statement. “It’s humbling to grace the cover after the likes of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird.”

“There’s so much young talent around the NBA, so it’s very exciting to be chosen for NBA 2K’s ‘New Dynasty’ alongside Kevin and Derrick,” said Griffin.

“The NBA 2K series has always been my first choice when I want to get a game in.” “It’s a dream come true to be one of the cover athletes for NBA 2K13,” Rose added. “I’ve worked closely with 2K Sports since NBA 2K10, and I’m honored to follow in the footsteps of Michael Jordan as the latest Chicago Bull to be featured on the cover.”
