One of the biggest things to look forward to during every offseason is the arrival of the individual player updates for the popular basketball simulation game NBA 2K at around the start of the so-called doldrums of August.
With it come debates over the fairness of each new assessment by fans and even the players the game represents. But for all of the vitriol (and, occasionally, jokes) about the ratings from the players themselves, not a lot of fans of the game (and sport) know how those ratings are created and adjusted — to say nothing of how the ire of said players is (usually) placated.
To learn more about that process, the hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast linked up with the face of the 2K series, Ronnie 2K, to talk about this year’s offseason update, how they get made, what they do when players are irked, and plenty more.
Check out the clip embedded above to hear the interview in full, as well as some news about the state of the Eastern Conference midway through the offseason.
