Morris likewise used to play a lot of NBA 2k, but veered away from the franchise about three years ago, by his recollection. He had two pressing issues with the game: his rating and his appearance. “I’ve been on there, I didn’t have my beard,” Morris said. “I didn’t have none of that. And I just wasn’t feeling it because I look at these other players, they’ve got everything. They’ve got all their [facial hair and accessories] done. They’ve got guys that haven’t played an NBA game coming in at [an] 80-something [rating] and I’m a fucking 77. And I done been in there eight years putting in work every year. So I just feel disrespected. So I don’t play it. “I averaged 14 [points per game] for the last three years. There’s no way I’m a 77 and dudes who average less than me are in the 80s. I don’t respect it. So I can’t play it.”

After his stellar first year, Kuzma told NBA 2K’s Ronnie Singh that he was expecting a bump when NBA 2K19 releases. “I think it should be at least an 80,” Kuzma said in a video. Kuzma got his wish — or at least the bare minimum of it — because Singh told him that when 2K19 drops, Kuzma will be an 80 overall, something the star sophomore forward says he’ll “for sure” use as motivation. ”But hey, an 80’s an 80,” Kuzma added, although his body language and tone in the video were that of a child trying to talk themselves into socks being a cool birthday present when they expected a Nintendo Switch:

Singh no longer has such anonymity. When an NBA player wants his rating, he must hit up @Ronnie2K. According to Singh, two days before the game’s release, 214 players had tweeted about their initial ratings. That’s nearly half of the 450 players in the league. The game’s manufacturer didn’t have to spend a dime for the promotion. “Most other brands would struggle to have that kind of [advertising],” Singh said. “I mean, they’d have to pay considerably to have that kind of impact. We’re doing it based on relationships and a passion for a really great video game.”

When Washington Wizards guard John Wall caught wind of his 90 rating, he tweeted at Singh: “u a joke !!” The two publicly debated about Wall’s previous ratings until Singh tweeted a GIF of a dancing salt shaker, poking fun at the four-time all-star for being upset. Wall blocked him. “John was not serious,” Singh said. “It was funny, him and I were DMing the whole time that was happening. It’s slightly orchestrated, you know. … I didn’t know he was going to say ‘u a joke,’ but that was perfect. That was exactly what we needed to kind of fuel the thirst about these ratings.”

While at the event, Danny had a chance to talk about the much-hyped game, and revealed he is not much of a gamer as well as a player who doesn’t fret over his rating. “I’m not a big gamer, I do play but I’m not a guy who worries about the rating. As long as they put me in the game — I know that they put me in better than I am in real life. So if they can put me in the game where I can shoot it pretty well, and play defense then I am happy. It’s always fun and interesting to watch.”

Ingram received a 76 rating in the game, which some believed was too low. In an interview with Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet, Ingram disagreed saying it could’ve been even lower considering the season he had last year: “I can’t control it, I know it’s just a game. Of course with the season I had this year I could’ve expected it even lower. I know what I’m capable of and a lot of guys, especially my fans, know what I’m capable of and that’s why they were mad at it, but it’s kind of based off how the season went this year.”

While EuroLeague players will be absent from NBA 2K18, fans of the game will be able to continue playing as Milos Teodosic since he now belongs to the NBA world as an LA Clipper. Αccoding to 2KRating, in 2K18, the Serbian guard is rated 77. He’s tied with Jayson Tatum as the third highest-rated rookie after Markelle Fulz (Philadelphia 76ers) and Lonzo Ball (LA Clippers).
