2K Sports held a media event in NY this evening with some athletes and other various celebrities in attendance to celebrate the upcoming release of NBA 2K10. With access to the game some info was sure to come out of it. One attendee that was tweeting was the rapper Wale who was surprised at Kevin Durant’s overall rating.

wtf kev durant is only an 82 ovr

This is the first ratings info that has gotten out and it confirms the pledge that the ratings would be more spread out. Ultimately that will be a good thing for the gameplay, but certainly there will be some initial shock as people examine the ratings if a player of Durant’s stature has fallen in the low 80s.

Wale also opined on the game and how it felt drastically different compared to 2K9.

2k10 is waaaaay different then 2k9..completly diff game..hard to drive to bucket..no in and out handles..Way slower..

Gameplay videos and impressions of NBA 2K10 should start flowing out from a handful of websites on Friday.

    If the game is harder, the more I'll enjoy the game for giving me a challenge. Hopefully less cheesers online too. Somehow someone will find a way to cheese.

    Well if durant is an 82 then the ratings spread is looking good…. Lebron or Kobe better not be over a 94! I can't wait for the ratings to be officially released

    • xPHANTx

      Kobe is better than 94. Lebron is not. 82 is good for Durant. Doesnt play D and doesnt board well.

    Durant is one of the best BIG pure shooters in the game, can't believe how graceful a jump shot the guy has. Maybe they just want to make it that much more tougher to run with OKC in the game hehe. Seriously though, 86 would have been more fitting.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/BeasleyFan Beasley30

      I say at least a 89

      • J-Kits

        Then you would probably have to boost a lot of other players up too. That's why its a spread. To expose what they're strong/weak at. But I feel ya though.

    Shouldn't their 82games affiliation drive their gameplay and tendencies vice player ratings? What is the purpose of player ratings other than trade logic? I'm trying to understand why they are emphasizing ratings…

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/okafor43 okafor43

      Ok didnt Madden emphasize player ratings this year also???? What is the fuss about ratings that will change once the season starts

    How the hell is Artest an 80 and my boy Durant is only a 82. BS!

    • Anonymous

      yea durant should be in the mid 90s!! this is some serious bullshit and im not even a thunder fan!

      he was in the top 5 in scoring last year and is as good as kobe and lebron when it comes to scoring points! especially in the clutch!

        C'mon Sandy you don't know is the problem. Scoring is easy for so many players in the NBA the highest form of basketball, there's a lot more to scoring in basketball. What are you a Dallas fan or Suns fan, maybe you've never seen a team play defense before maybe that's the problem. Again scoring is only one facet Sandy

        Sandy know your role, and that is to watch and observe, you are a newbie rook to understand the NBA so erroneously.

        How can he score points in the clutch when they are loosing 80% of the time…???

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/okafor43 okafor43

      Well lets see…for starters Artest is more of a complete player than your boy Durant. With Artest pretty well knows to Lock people d f*k up and score also in the post and shooting three's, where Durant right now is more of a scorer and thats about it right now in his career, what you should be saying is why is Artest just an 80 with his immense talent on both ends of the court.
