Kevin Durant, Warriors' Steph Curry named to NBA 2K20's All-2010s team




 

With the end of the decade fewer than six months away, many in the sports world have begun to reflect on the most impactful players and figures during that time. Five straight NBA Finals appearances and three championships later, the Warriors undoubtedly have been one of the most successful North American professional sports franchises since 2010.

2K Sports waded into those waters with the release of All-Decade teams that will be available in the upcoming "NBA 2K20."

The starting five for the "2010s" team includes Warriors star Steph Curry and the recently departed Kevin Durant. LeBron James, James Harden, and Dwight Howard joined the duo to fill out the starting lineup.

Although Durant spent more than half of the decade with the Oklahoma City Thunder, he reached his peak and earned both of his Finals MVP honors during his time with Golden State.

Curry was an easy choice, as a two-time MVP who became the first unanimous winner in 2016. Not to mention he led the league in three-pointers for five straight seasons from 2012-13 through 2016-17.

Although 2K did not reveal the reserves for each All-Decade team, it's hard to imagine the "2010s" 13-man roster wouldn't also include Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, who each have impressive resumes of their own from the past 10 years.

D'Angelo Russell recently said the 2019-20 version of the Warriors will be like playing a video game, but Steve Kerr must have felt like he was operating a joystick at times over what has been a historic five-year run.

You might think of Steph Curry as a point guard.

But in this age of run-and-gun positionless basketball, is Curry really a point guard?
