NBA 2K13 News Post


During the 2K Live-stream, we managed to capture Kevin Durant's Signature Skills for NBA 2K13. As Ronnie explained, Durant will have the Shot Creator, Microwave, Deadeye, Closer and Finisher Signature Skills. The image also shows a glimpse at what Jay-Z has been working on, as Executive Producer.

LD2K mentioned via Twitter the following.

Quote:
The difference between a FINISHER & a CLOSER is:
  • CLOSER: This player raises his game in clutch moments.
  • FINISHER: This player is adept at finishing contact layups and dunks at a higher rate than others.
More details in the Dev writeup (and video) coming Sunday via the Live-stream.

Could of had ankle breaker as well. By far has the best crossover at the SF position.

Shot creator and Deadeye KD's stepback Jumper is going to be mean

Ooh, Finisher is a nice one. I'm guessing it's the extra ability to score while getting fouled hard at the rim...

Yeah, that's annoying. He's really closer to 6'11" than 6'9", but they could at least have him at 6'10".

No way ... Tyreke Evans has the best crossover at the SF

So, from looking at that screenshot is it far to assume that the signature skills are causing a boost in the overall rating? Thus, having more signature skills (like a Durant or LeBron) will cause in even bigger boost?

I'm really liking the feature and can't wait to see Duncan, Ginobili and Parker's ratings and skills.

I don't think it affects the rating at all, but we'll find out soon enough I guess.

I don`t see how that warrants him getting the skill. Ankle breaker should be reserved for the guys who do it the best (Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Derrick Rose, and Dwayne Wade), otherwise there`s no point to sig skills. Hopefully 2k has only given these sig skills to the guys who do it best.

Dont really like the impact of Jay-Z in the layout thing.. I like it tho that u can see the Offense/Defense rating of a player, i've never played 2k12, but in 2k11 u could only see it when you looked at the numbers players putted up in a Asso. So thats a good point for me, im not that familiar with ALL the players

I second this. It is not even debatable.
 
# 15 LD2k @ 08/31/12 05:44 PM
I actually had to zoom in on these ratings screens to avoid spoiling the new (censored).

Oh wait, we can't talk about (censored) yet?

More news on the way.

 
# 16 ojandpizza @ 08/31/12 05:45 PM
Even if somebody did think Durant had the best crossover that alone by no means makes him an ankle-breaker lol.. I guess I've just missed all the killer crossover, ankle-breaking moments of Durants career

I've been asked this on twitter and will quote what was aired on the live-stream.

The difference between a FINISHER & a CLOSER is:
  • CLOSER: This player raises his game in clutch moments.
  • FINISHER: This player is adept at finishing contact layups and dunks at a higher rate than others.
More details in the Dev writeup (and video) coming Sunday via the Live-stream.

At the time - KD was a 95.

Ratings are always subject to change as we mentioned back when we announced Durant's ratings.
