Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton is taking issue with a certain aspect of his ratings for NBA 2k24. While Haliburton was happy with his side-step three pointer rating, the Pacers guard wasn't so thrilled with his driving dunk rating, which was labeled as just a 65 overall in the popular game.
“Side-step! Yup, y’all been watching the film for sure,” said Haliburton in a video posted to his social media. “…But this right here is where you lost me, 65 driving dunk?”

It's true that Tyrese Haliburton may not stand out for his athleticism in a league filled with some of the best athletes from around the globe. Still, a 65 is perhaps a tad bit understated for a player who has had his fair share of in-game dunks.
In terms of his side-step threes, Haliburton has established the shot as his go-to throughout his short NBA career. This past season was a career best for the 23-year-old, who earned his first All Star selection in addition to participating in the three-point contest.
While the Pacers were unable to clinch a Play-In birth, Haliburton was still rewarded with a five-year, $260 million contract this offseason for his services. He joined the Pacers via a trade with the Sacramento Kings during the 2022 season.
Haliburton and his Team USA teammates recently took a disappointing loss to Germany at the FIBA World Cup. Still, the talented guard will now have over a month to prepare for the upcoming 2023-24 season in which he will look to expand on his career bests from last year.
