NBA 2K19, the top basketball sim game, turns NBA players into video game avatars using mocap and body scans. We go behind the scenes at 2K Sports to show you the process of how they realistically capture basketball players’ form and movement. Find out how NBA All-Stars like Steph Curry, Lebron James, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook get such detailed appearances and individualized animations in the game, and why 2K’s character avatars are getting more and more realistic each year.

How NBA 2K Makes Basketball Players Look Real In Video Games


  1. Look at Curry now. Literally looks like an old man

  2. This the first time I’ve seen curry actually do the curry slide😂 I can’t be the only one

  3. Jesus is coming
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. …

  4. They did this before 2k 14 and copied it in every year

  5. The animations actually suck like in 2k13 dunks were violent and the rim was shaking now you dunk with Zion it looks like me doing a rimgrazer on a 8 foot rim

  6. It's funny how they called this NextGen at the time

  7. When the video first started i thought it was a joke

  8. hi guys ​​we just need 850 subscribers to reach 1k subs haha I hope you can help us haha a little click in our channel will help and you can also watch our vidos if you find anything that makes you happy and also suggest a content in our last vid i hope you subscribe thank you so much😘🙏☝✌

  9. Curry should've included his one-motion shot on his moves.

  10. “She was 9 months pregnant and dropped 7 three-pointers in a row”.
    Right so that baby came out shooting 3’s then

  11. EA needs to take notes cause UFC 4 is ridiculous

  12. Who else notice that look nothing like BRON and who else saw Mike Wang

  13. 2019: "Curry is the best shooter of all time"

    2020: "Curry's braids are cursed" 😂

  14. 0:44 “the most life like game ever”

    NBA 2K14 and 21 next gen “ am I a joke to you”

  15. Don’t really care about this hipster guys face scan. They should’ve put more video footage of real nba players doing their moves. Bad vidro

  16. Just came to see some players read scripts to boost confidence

  17. then how did they put all time teams in the game? did y’all do this with magic johnson, kobe bryant, etc?

  18. I wanna know how they get the old people like michale jordan, magic johnson, and larry bird. cause 2k was around when they played.

  19. They should include the reporter's character as an easter egg to their game.

  20. Only if they could keep the ball rolling for WWE 2k 😔😔😔

  21. How has curry never been 99 when Chris Paul has

  22. Need better physics… Players still sliding like on ice…

  23. Aldridge Tristan Idano the car eats car fan 330 says:

    What about creating and adding referees to the game

  24. They need to update stephen curry's signatures

  25. Different era. Big men were not 3 point shooters.

    I don't remember any center's shooting 3's then.

    At least not regularly.

  26. I still would rather actual physics mixed in and not be all animation. Like you literally clip through each other when dunking
