Marvin Bagley finds his NBA 2K19 rating laughable
Sacramento Kings rookie Marvin Bagley III is the latest NBA player to have his NBA 2K19 overall rating released. Although he did receive a respectable 79 rating, Bagley did not appear to be in complete agreement with the assessment.
Bagley himself shared the photo announcement made by NBA 2K on Twitter. The 19-year-old did not have a single word to say about the rating, but the LOL emojis he posted were enough to make his sentiments clear.

Bagley is the second rookie to have his rating released by game developer 2K Sports. Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic also had his rating revealed recently, and with a 79 grade, the Slovenian was one point higher than his fellow rookie. Bagley would have undoubtedly known about this, which likely had some influence on his disagreement with the rating.
Nothing short in confidence, Bagley’s recent act has added more pressure on himself. He obviously believes that he deserves a rating higher than 78, and this gives his critics more motivation to watch him more closely, as he attempts to prove his conviction.
Bagley went second overall in this year’s draft behind big man Deandre Ayton, who the Phoenix Suns believed deserved the first overall selection. The former Duke standout is an excellent addition to the Kings’ young and talented core led by De’Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield.
The likes of Justin Jackson, Willie Cauley-Stein, Ben McLemore, and Yogi Ferrell are also all under 26-years-old, which makes the Kings a very exciting team to watch this upcoming season.
