Let’s be honest: “NBA 2K20” is far from a perfect game. Servers have a tendency to crash, animations are wacky and the gameplay just isn’t that smooth. But fans were excited to watch their favorite NBA stars get together (online, in a social-distancing-friendly manner) to play it Friday in the Players Tournament.
The event provided great entertainment, but unfortunately, some of it was overshadowed by the game’s bugginess, especially in the first matchup, in which No. 1 seed Kevin Durant (Clippers) was upset by No. 16 seed Derrick Jones Jr. (Bucks).
One of Durant’s biggest struggles was trying to stop Giannis Antetokounmpo in transition, a problem with which the entire “2K” community is all too familiar.
This wasn’t even the first time Durant has complained about the transition defense on “2K.” He tweeted in February that it was “the most frustrating thing in [his] life” at the time.
Durant might have a bad rep with some fans because of his choice to join the 73-win Warriors after blowing a 3-1 lead to them with the Thunder in the 2016 Western Conference finals, along with the fact he was caught using burner accounts on Twitter and Instagram. But they can relate to his frustration with the transition defense on “2K.”
Fans have been griping about that part of the game for years, but with Durant voicing similar complaints, maybe there’s a chance 2K Sports will finally do something about it.
