Fans got a first look at NBA 2K22 and some of the ratings for players are being revealed. On Wednesday, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry received his for the game. He was given a 96 overall, but that didn't impress LeBron James.
Nah should be 99! 🤷🏾♂️

Do you think Bron is a fan of Steph? It certainly seems like it. To be fair, the Warriors guard probably does deserve the highest rating possible after winning the scoring title in 2020-21. Stephen Curry averaged 32.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists while shooting an impressive 42 percent from 3-point range. Talk about dominant!
It's not like this will really bother Curry anyway, but LeBron James clearly wants to see his buddy have a better rating in the video game.
The Warriors, meanwhile, are poised to get back into playoff contention next season after a disappointing Play-In exit back in May. With Klay Thompson set to return early in the campaign and a couple of new draft picks on the roster, things are looking positive for the franchise.
As for the Lakers, they have done a great job building their roster in free agency, headlined by the addition of Russell Westbrook which gives LA their own Big 3.
As for NBA 2K22, it's set to be released on September 10th. The Warriors and Lakers will also face off on Opening Night on October 19th.
