Any Twitter DMs from NBA players complaining about them? Ronnie 2K: Oh yeah, for sure. Absolutely. You don’t have to say any names… Ronnie 2K: I don’t want to throw them under the bus. But listen, it makes sense. Everybody wants to be a 99, everybody compares themselves to other people around their rating and say ‘Hey, I’m better than that guy, I’m better than that other guy’… It’s a really difficult thing to do. The one thing about really seeing the ratings individually is that you don’t really get a context of who they are next to. A lot of people were upset about the [Kristaps] Porzingis rating. He’s an 80, but there’s a lot of guys around him that are definitely on his level and maybe even better. I don’t mean to pick on Porzingis because I think he is one of the future Top 10 basketball players in the Association.

Kevin Durant holding out of training camp?

Brian Windhorst spent much of his Friday episode of “Brian Windhorst & The Hoop Collective” podcast talking about Durant’s situation. Windhorst said he felt the Nets won the recent showdown between Durant and team owner Joe Tsai. But Windy doesn’t necessarily think that means all is over between the sides. In fact, Windhorst says he now could see a world where Durant holds out of training camp. “A week ago, if you had asked me, ‘Will Kevin Durant hold out of training camp if he is not traded?’ I would have been like, ‘eh, I can’t see it.’ Now I can see it. That is what we are headed towards,” Windhorst said.
