Ronnie 2K is at it again. The individual player ratings for NBA 2K17 were released a few days ago, giving dudes around the league a chance to complain and bust each other’s balls. Our own New York Knicks were no exception.
We begin with Kristaps Porzingis, who didn’t actually comment. He’s willing to let the fans speak for him:
What do I think? I think they screwed up his hair and made him look slightly cross-eyed, which is a damned sin in my eyes. Also, 80 is a touch low, I suppose.
And then there was Brandon Jennings, who put on a hater’s clinic.
They gave u 69? That's crazy smfh! I thought more like 65. https://t.co/yNSaLFZF5c— Brandon Jennings (@brandonjennings) August 27, 2016
Jennings was at perhaps his most savage with Jared Dudley, the dude best remembered by Knicks fans for calling Carmelo Anthony the NBA’s most overrated player.
Waitttttttt a min!!!!! Jared ur my guy and all. But listen no way I'm 75 and u 76! no way https://t.co/lQ0gH5EUXd— Brandon Jennings (@brandonjennings) August 27, 2016
This is just smart — ingratiate yourself with your new team by publicly taking down the enemy of its captain. If Jennings keeps this up, Melo just might buy him his own monogrammed bathrobe.
To me, the real mystery is how Kristaps can be only four points higher than Dudley in light of the following evidence:
Case closed. Kristaps is 106, Dudley is -32.
