The “NBA 2K” video game series is the best basketball simulation to hit the popular video game consoles each year, and the much-debated player ratings for the upcoming “NBA 2K19” installment are starting to come out.
We know that new Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James will be the highest-rated player in the game at 98 overall (out of 100), and now we know the rating of Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum.
An 87 overall is pretty good for a second-year player.
Tatum was a Rookie of the Year finalist after averaging 13.9 points and shooting 43.4 percent from 3-point range during the regular season.
He led the Celtics in scoring with 18.5 points per game during their run to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Duke product was Boston’s best player in the postseason, showcasing his excellent 3-point shooting and ability to attack the basket and score at the rim.
The 20-year-old forward projects to be a superstar-caliber player, and his rating in “NBA 2K19” reflects that potential.
