Less than 24 hours after he was named MVP, 2K Sports announces that he's their man.

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant has been named the cover athlete for this year's NBA 2K15 , which is scheduled to launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 7.

Durant was just named the 2014 Most Valuable Player, too, so it has been a good week for the dominating player:

"I'm honored to be selected for the cover of NBA 2K. I've been an avid fan and player of NBA 2K since I was a kid, and being selected as the sole cover athlete of NBA 2K15 is an amazing accomplishment at this point of my life. I feel like my time has come."

The fact that he was a kid when NBA 2K came onto the scene makes me feel very, very old. Anyway, if you're wondering, Miami Heat star LeBron James was on the cover for the last franchise iteration, so now it's Kevin's turn. That October 7 date is awfully crowded, though; Dragon Age: Inquisition , Alien: Isolation , Driveclub and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor all drop on that day as well.

Get ready for an extremely busy fall!

NBA2K14 on the PS4 = My favorite sports game of all time and I am eagerly awaiting 2K15!!

And as far as KD on the cover goes, I have to chuckle since the virtual version of myself in the "My Career" game mode had already won that honor. 🙂
