In case you haven't noticed, NBA 2K ratings are a very big deal to NBA players. The uber-popular video game franchise has created an annual social media sensation by tweeting out player ratings one-by-one over the course of several weeks leading up to the game's actual release. Most NBA players are on Twitter, so they react and fun debates ensue.
Several Wizards players have already voiced their opinions on Twitter with a wide range of reactions. Here are some that have come out so far:
Wall was clearly displeased with his 2K rating of 90.
He tweeted @Ronnie2K to gripe about it:
@Ronnie2K u a joke !!— John Wall (@JohnWall) August 4, 2017
Ronnie pointed out that Wall's rating always goes up over the course of the season, but messed up on the exact number from 2016-17. Wall called him on it:
lol all good bra I ended at a 90 but good try wit the 93— John Wall (@JohnWall) August 4, 2017
Beal, on the other hand, was quite happy with his 87 rating. He tweeted that "it looks good to me!"
Wall and Beal's reactions were enough to get Gortat to ask fans on Twitter what his own rating is, despite the fact he doesn't actually play the video game:
Can anybody tell me what's my Nba 2k rating??? Never played this game.....— Marcin Gortat🇵🇱 (@MGortat) August 10, 2017
That prompted some pretty funny suggestions from fans, some that Gortat even responded to:
u right !!! U know buddy...— Marcin Gortat🇵🇱 (@MGortat) August 10, 2017
69— Pat Mahomes (@patmahomes) August 10, 2017
Twitter rating is 99— R Feasley (@nohiddenfeas) August 10, 2017
One fan suggested a 75 and Gortat wondered if that was a good thing or a bad thing:
75?? To dobrze Czy Zle?— Marcin Gortat🇵🇱 (@MGortat) August 10, 2017
Kelly Oubre, Jr.
Oubre hasn't seen his 2K rating yet either and doesn't want to. Hear him out:
My 2K rating is always weak, I'll ask for my rating when I prove to y'all what I'm really worth. Appreciate the support tho, Godspeed #Shhh— Wave Papi (@KELLYOUBREJR) August 11, 2017
