The NBA 2k20 player ratings are officially out and you can be sure that NBA players are checking out their own rating to see where they rank amongst their peers in the league. Los Angeles Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell is one of those players and he isn’t too happy that he’s been rated lower than Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma.
When Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints tweeted that Harrell’s rating of 83 is just one point less than Kuzma’s 84 rating, the Clippers big man responded by saying it was a “F*****g joke”
Both players had great seasons and there’s certainly an argument for Harrell to be rated much higher. Harrell averaged more rebounds, steals and blocks while having a better field goal percentage. It also should be mentioned that the Clippers forward was in contention for the Sixth Man of the Year award.
As all die-hard 2k supporters know, ratings aren’t just based on overall performance in matches, it also includes things such as speed, agility, strength, potential and defensive awareness.
The Lakers and Clippers already have a natural rivalry due to the two teams sharing Los Angeles, both franchises also added some highly talented players such as Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Anthony Davis. This little online battle of Harrell and Kuzma may add a little more to the excitement to the first time the two teams meet this upcoming season.
