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.

Why haven't all pro sports gone to video games to continue playing? It could be televised and be great entertainment for the fans!
