2K Sports has released today the first gameplay footage of NBA 2K13, as well as the first few screenshots of the game showing the title’s cover athletes, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin.

While the screenshots are pretty (you can see and expand each below), the real news comes from the first developer diary also pasted below. For 2K13, the development team at Visual Concepts is readdressing how ball control and defense is handled. Now, the right analog stick controls your precision dribbling moves instead of shooting, and the stick also allows for better defensive positioning. Give the below video a watch to see what I mean. Also, be sure to check out the screenshots too!
