Evan Fournier was really excited to share what his NBA 2k character looks like on Twitter. Then Twitter did what Twitter does, and really went in on “2k Fournier,” who sort of looks a little different from real life Fournier. But Fournier is a really funny guy! So he took this roast like a champ, even putting up a poll to see who the public thought his character looks like. Ding! Ding! Ding! The winner is a crack head.
Another popular answer not included in the poll is an unemployed reggaeton artist. But Fournier wasn’t so happy with that one, threatening the next person to suggest it would “get his ass blocked.” Nobody has had more fun with this whole debacle than his friend, Rudy Gobert, though. The Jazz big man changed his twitter profile picture to the creepy 2k Fournier, and is leading the campaign to get others to do the same.
The latest turning point for Jody occurred during a road trip covering the Jazz last season. “I had the experience of what it’s like being the fat guy on an airplane,” he said. “I could tell the guy sitting next to me wasn’t thrilled, my gut spilling over onto him. I was miserable and it turned out it was a parallel to my life. “I was looking at 374 pounds at 45 years old. I was playing Russian roulette with my health. I got four kids, a wife… something had to change.”
