I know right … it’s a huge, yet awesome, picture. But the size of that picture is definitely not the thing I’ll quickly be discussing about.
First and foremost, where in the world is Kevin Love?! Secondly, where is the league MVP?! I know these three guys are under 24 years of age and that 2K is utilizing the young superstar players in the NBA but c’mon, Kevin Love is 23 years old and LeBron James is still, unbelievably, 27 years old.
Nonetheless, the cover looks sick with Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, and Blake Griffin. I would, however, question Blake Griffin being on the cover mainly because his status in the NBA is not as high as Kevin Love/LeBron James and with the two other guys on the cover as well. I’m not going to rant and defend LeBron James in this post because his name has appeared in too much posts I’ve posted in recent weeks and since this is a T-Wolves blog, I’ll defend my MVP! It should have been Kevin Love! However, in the cover, they’re all dunking with one hand and going up using their athleticism. And Kevin Love doesn’t do that, which is why slightly understand as to why he’s not on the cover with these three All-Stars. Well, 2K, instead of having three guys, why not have one beast in Kevin Love. They should have at least have a cover of him snatching a rebound …
Give some respect to K-Love 2K!
