Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans is ranked a strong 92 in NBA 2K16. That's a significant bump from last year's 88 player rating. He is tied with James Harden in the third spot. Only LeBron James (94) and Stephen Curry (93) ranked ahead of the two. Talk about #SquadGoals
That's a pretty big accomplishment. To everybody but Anthony Davis.
Anthony Davis asked about his NBA2K rating, says it really doesn’t matter, because he plays with the Rockets anyway.— Brett Dawson (@BDawsonWrites) September 28, 2015
Nobody can really blame him for being an honorary Rocket. Davis himself ranks at the number one power forward in the NBA 2K league. However, his team is very average.
Plus, who wouldn't want to play as the Rockets? Imagine how great it must feel as Anthony Davis — who has no one on his team capable of making plays for him — to control James Harden and Ty Lawson, to run the fast break as freely as Corey Brewer, to push people around like Dwight Howard, to bomb threes like Trevor Ariza.
We salute you, Brow. And we welcome you when you want to play for the real thing.
