The Los Angeles Lakers are NBA champions. For anyone reading this niche Lakers blog during the offseason, that is undoubtedly good news. The only bad news? That means the NBA season is over, which means that games of NBA 2K21 are the closest thing we’re going to get to scratching our roundball itch for the foreseeable future.
That also means that it’s time to take part in everyone’s favorite offseason tradition: Getting Unreasonably Upset About NBA 2K Ratings™. The basketball internet does this every year, and with no firm date for next season even set as of now, we have even more time than usual.
Because of that grim reality, as NBA 2K announces the updated ratings for the various Lakers in the latest edition of the basketball simulation, we’ll be keeping track of and reacting to them here, so bookmark this page for the updating list we’ll be keeping of every players’ rating below, with links to our thoughts as they come out.
