On Tuesday afternoon, the NBA officially announced that Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant was the league’s Most Valuable Player for the 2013-14 NBA regular season. Just a few hours later, Durant received another honor.

The folks at 2K Sports have announced that Durant will be the cover athlete for NBA 2K15. The news was announced during a media conference call on Tuesday.

They made the announcement and released the following image:

“To be the 2K15 cover athlete is just as important [as winning MVP] to me,” Durant said. “I begged them to put me on the cover. I don’t think anybody plays the game as much as I do. It’s so authentic.”

NBA 2K15 will be released on October 7th for PS3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
