For the first time in his life, Williamson can play NBA2K and not have to create himself on the video game. He is rated No. 81, with Hassan Whiteside, Serge Ibaka, Rudy Gay, Domantas Sabonis and Jonas Valanciunas. He is also the top rookie. However … “My guy is not that good in 2K. That’s OK. He’s slower than I’d like but it’s fine,” Williamson said. “It’s weird though. At the AAU trips when you’re younger, you’re playing 2K with your friends and teammates and you’re having fun.
You slide over to the right or to the left and you start pushing the button to switch teams, ‘Boom, you’re right there.’ You don’t have to create your player. Your player is already there. It’s just like, ‘Man, I’m here. But I want to stay here for a long time.’ All this stuff just adds motivation to my fire.”
