Kevin Durant: Stephen Curry ‘is terrible’ in NBA2K

Aug 20, 2014, 5:07 PM EDT

Stephen Curry may not quite be a better offensive player than LeBron James, but he’s certainly one of the game’s top shooters.

Evidently, those skills didn’t translate to the video game version of Curry’s persona.

Speaking at an event in New York to promote the latest release of NBA2K, Kevin Durant was asked which players he enjoys playing as in the game. And, with Curry on stage next to him, he wasn’t afraid to be completely honest.

“The thing is, I can’t shoot with Steph,” Durant said.

“That’s what everybody’s telling me,” Curry added.

“I can’t play well, he’s terrible in the game,” Durant said.

“They say it’s hit or miss with the timing on my jumper,” Curry said. “And I can’t figure out my own jumper.”

“He’s a 30 percent shooter in my game,” Durant said.

Check out the full exchange in the video clip above.

    I don’t know. Last season I played in 2K14 was with the Warriors and my Steph Curry dominates, averages like 38-5-10. Just gotta play with him enough to master the jumper timing. It’s probably because he has such an insanely quick release that he feels different than the rest of the players.

    They are spot-on. His jumper is incredibly difficult to time

    hopefully Curry works on this before the season starts …

    It’s definitely because his shot is ridiculously fast.

    I’m 10 games in and I got Kobe shooting 61% from 3. Nick Young is even higher, can’t remember exactly how much off top but he’s automatic. I even get Wes Johnson going off at a 45% clip. Gotta use him at the top of the 3.

    Hmm… is it me or has their been a few durant vs curry stuff in the nba media lately? If I was paranoid I’d say this is under armour’s way of beefing up their brand with one of their clients and one future client.
