Oklahoma City Thunder All Star forward, Kevin Durant will be the cover athlete for NBA Elite 11.
Durant was a 2010 All Star and the youngest player in NBA history to lead the league in scoring this past season. He also led the Thunder to a 1st round playoff run against the 2010 Champs, Los Angeles Lakers.
Durant is only the third player in EA SPORTS history to be featured both on the pack of an NCAA and an NBA licensed product. Durant was featured on the cover of NCAA March Madness 08.
“Durant is a game changer,” said Jordan Edelstein, VP Marketing, EA Sports via press release. “There has never been a player his size with his skill set, and there has never before been a basketball videogame like ‘NBA Elite’. Just like we see Durant as the future of the NBA, ‘NBA Elite 11’ represents the future of basketball videogames by providing a gameplay experience you simply won’t find anywhere else on the market.”
