Andrew Wiggins isn’t a big fan of NBA2K17 and I don’t blame him after what the video game did to his rating.
The new game has Wiggins as an 82 a season after the 21-year-old averaged 20.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 35.1 minutes per game. He wasn’t thrilled with it and had a great response when HoopsTroop pointed out his rating:
Yeah, I’d be on Team Call of Duty too in that case.
For the sake of comparison, Rudy Gobert and Brook Lopez are both rated at 81. The Minnesota Timberwolves guard is a far better player than both of them.
Wiggins isn’t at All-Star level yet, but he’s a rising two-way player who improved his scoring and PER numbers dramatically last year despite the talent around him improving and taking some of the helium out of his numbers.
