NBA rookies have guessed their in-game ratings for the upcoming NBA 2K18. This is something already done by NFL players, however, the ratings shared by NBA newcomers are far more realistic as compared to NFL players. FootLocker recently shared a video that features NBA’s top rookies guessing their player ratings in the upcoming game.
Lakers’ Lonzo Ball guessed his rating to be 80 which makes sense since Ben Simmons was rated at 79 in NBA 2K17 and went to the top. Since Ball was directly behind Simmons, somewhere around 78-80 seems likely! The biggest surprise came from Frank Jackson who predicted a 90 overall rating for himself. According to Forbes, Jackson was 31st pick in the draft so it’s highly unlikely that he’d go past 77 – even in the best case scenario.

Despite the fact that the rating meter only goes up to 99, it couldn’t prevent De’Aaron Fox who predicted a speed rating of 112. With that being said, despite his unknowledgeable guess, we fully expect him to be the fastest player in the draft and somewhere around 90-92. There’s plenty more so make sure to check out the video and share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!
NBA 2K18 is scheduled to release on Sept. 19, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
