Steph Curry.

Stephen Curry has basically broken the NBA 2k video game

Published 1 Comments

Stephen Curry is an enigma in the NBA right now, confounding fans, analysts and opponents alike with his truly incredible play.

Not only is Curry causing problems for 29 head coaches around the league, he's also a thorn in the side of the NBA 2K video game series.  

In a piece by Forbes, NBA 2K gameplay director Mike Wang revealed that Curry's style of play is an absolute nightmare for his team to try and recreate in the game.

Playing the Wrong Way

Apparently, Curry's eccentric - and at times maverick - style of play is the complete antithesis to what the 2K games would consider good play. 

"Taking 3s off the dribble are also definitely discouraged in NBA 2K. Especially after over-dribbling beforehand," Wang said. That is the primary function of Curry's play, quick pull up three's and dribbling his way in and out of traffic.

Keep on Coding

Thankfully, the developers at 2K are still trying to find a way to make Curry the MVP caliber talent he is in real life, in the game. 

"To be completely honest, we are still looking for ways to better translate his game into NBA 2K," Wang carried on as saying.

"He’s a ‘rule breaker’ when it comes to jump shooting … he becomes a problem in the video game world where we’ve been trying to train our gamers [to know] that certain types of shots should be rewarded versus others."

“We’re going to have to invest even more time in future iterations to really let Steph be Steph in future versions of NBA 2K.”

At the moment, Curry is rated as a 93 in the game with a 95 'Moving Shot Three' and 'Standing Shot Three'. It looks like they'll have to be bumped up to a 99 next year.
