The latest Kevin Durant news reveals that the OKC forward uses fellow superstar LeBron James’ avatar when playing NBA 2K15.
According to Complex.com , Durant appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on September 25 to talk about the new video game.
Fallon held a copy of the game up, featuring Durant as the cover star, and then asked, “Are you good at this game?” KD answered, “I’m really good.
15 years, been playing for 15 years I have to be pretty good.” Fallon confirmed, “You’re actually decent at this one?” KD said, “I’m really good.
I’m really good.” This is where the Kevin Durant news gets more interesting — the forward proceeded to share his experiences playing the game in the past, saying that he and his friends would hold summer-long tournaments.
He added that he broke several controllers and that his brother was not allowed to play anymore because he would break the TV.
Jimmy Fallon asked, “So, you play as you?” Durant immediately replied, “No, that’s kind of arrogant.” Durant kept a poker face the entire time while Fallon burst into laughter with the crowd.
