Kevin Durant: MVP, 2K15 cover athlete

I play because I love it!

– Kevin Durant

Two prestigious accolades for KD today… one a little more than the other as he was announced as the 2013-14 Most Valuable Player and then just moments before posting time: cover athlete for NBA 2K15.

First, video of his emotional speech that felt like I was watching Derrick Rose in 2011. Durant thanked each teammate individually, the organization, coaching staff, and finally his family and his mom. Hard not to feel some type of way while watching it.

And 2K Sports joined in on the celebration by tweeting their announcement with the baddass new campaign of #YourTimeHasCome. Your time has come indeed, KD.
