You know it’s time to talk about video game basketball for real when the developer diaries start flowing. While EA SPORTS’ NBA Live 13 is nowhere to be found, NBA 2K13 is following up last week’s mind-blowing news of Jay-Z executive producing the game (stop laughing now) with this first developer diary. This is where some of the folks who actually work on the game get to have a little spotlight and tell you what they really want to do with a game. Soon enough, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Jay-Z will all be hogging the attention around NBA 2K13 so enjoy these dev diaries while you can
Derrick Rose is part of the cover trio for NBA 2K13 as well, but since he’s hurt we’re not going to mention him nearly as much. Bad knees for a guy with Rose’s playing style can be a death sentence for a career. We wish him the speediest of recoveries but talking about him only makes us and the NBA miss D Rose more.
