Rockets’ Russell Westbrook reacts to his NBA 2K20 rating
Russell Westbrook appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and one of the talking points on the show was the Houston Rockets guard’s NBA 2K20 rating after the game just dropped this weekend.
Westbrook admitted that he has yet to find out his rating, so Fallon proposed they reveal it to him there and then. The talk show host brought out a card featuring the Rockets star’s video game version and showed 2K-rated Westbrook as a 90.
In classic Brodie fashion, the former MVP threw away the card and said the rating doesn’t mean anything:

No surprises here, really. Russell Westbrook doesn’t give a damn about what others think of him, much less his 2K rating.
In all honesty, this is probably just the right overall rating for Westbrook. Only 13 players made the cut of having a rating of 90 or above. Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and LA Clippers star Kawhi Leonard are the two highest rated players on the game with a 97. Westbrook shares his rating with Denver Nuggets All-Star center Nikola Jokic.
Nevertheless, Westbrook probably won’t get his hands on the game so much during the season. The Rockets went all in by acquiring Westbrook from the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Many pundits initially questioned his fit next to former Thunder running mate James Harden. However, the Rockets have high hopes that the two buddies will eventually figure it out, just like they did back in Oklahoma City.
