In the NBA 2K gaming franchise, each active player in the NBA and some legends to boot is individually rated on a 99-point scale. Although this might seem like a trivial ranking that means nothing in the scheme of the game, when you are given a single number that summarises your talents and makes you comparable on the same scale to others in the league, this shit gets competitive.
LeBron James, now a Los Angeles Laker, is going to appear on the cover of the 20th-anniversary edition of NBA 2K19, so we were made aware of his rating before it releases in September. Check out his reaction to a 98 rank!
At 33 years of age, this is a pretty phenomenal rating, however, it's the 12th time out of 16 that LeBron has copped a 97 or higher rating, even getting a 99 in NBA 2K14.
NBA 2K19 is the 20th instalment in the NBA 2K franchise and the successor to NBA 2K18.
Keep up with the Culture Kings Blog for all the latest in Sport, Music and Streetwear. At this point, we should have an entire section dedicated to LeBron as well.
