LeBron James reacts to NBA 2K19 rating
For the better part of last season, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James led people to confuse him with a video game character whenever he’s on the court, thanks to the comical stat lines he was putting up on an almost nightly basis.
After James’ MVP-quality season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it only feels right for the four-time MVP to get a high NBA 2K19 rating, and the guys responsible for doing that, did give him a near-perfect grade of 98, which was not bad at all for a player who’s on the wrong side of 30, according to LeBron James himself.
Last season, James put up a herculean effort in carrying the Cavs on his back, as he averaged 27.5 points on 54.2 percent shooting from the field, 8.6 rebounds, and 9.1 assists per game, which were numbers anyone would not necessarily expect to be produced by a 33-year-old player. James also played in all 82 regular season games for Cleveland and spent an average of 36.9 minutes per contest. One could only imagine the amount of fuel James had to burn and the depth of his reservoir of motivation in order for him to tow the Cavs from one game into another, especially in the playoffs, where he almost did everything for the team.
Entering his 16th season in the NBA, all eyes will be on James once again.
NBA 2K19 will not be available in the market until its release date on Sep. 11.
