Sixers fans who are impatient to wait for “The Process” to reach its apex can turn to NBA2k18 when it it drops on September, 19 as the game is finally giving Philadelphia some respect.
After last year’s No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons was rated as a 79 overall by the basketball franchise, this year’s top pick Markelle Fultz is an 80 — the same as No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball. Paired with what will no doubt be some high potential, Fultz projects to be a pretty good player in franchise mode for sports video game fans.
They are the highest rated incoming rookies since John Wall was an 81 overall in 2010.
Even more encouraging for the Philly faithful is Joel Embiid’s rating, an 86 overall after the big man looked spectacular in 31 games in limited minutes for the Sixers.
Few other player ratings have been announced yet, but NBAk2 did tweet out that Kevin Durant was a 96 and Steph Curry was a 94. The two Warriors stars no doubt lead an elitely ranked roster in the game. The only player from Golden State’s counterpart in Cleveland is Kyrie Irving, who is rated as a 90 overall.
