Jayson Tatum has confidence. I would too if I were Jayson Tatum.
He is confident in his ability on the basketball court and is not happy with those who doubt it. These haters include video game companies, as we have recently learned. Tatum is not going to let their shenanigans slide. That is for sure....
What are we referring to? The good old NBA 2k games. There's a 2k 20 coming out in the coming months and frankly, the rating Tatum was given is not good enough for him.
That's right. Tatum was only given an 85 overall this time around. This is his third season in the league and this rating is the second best he has gotten over the course of that time. So, in other words, the dummies who run the video game company made his rating worse this year than it was last year. Last season, he was an 87 overall to start the year. And as a rookie, he started his career at a respectable 82 overall.
So what did Tatum have to say about it?
“Disrespectful,” he said. “It’s going to go up next year.”
Well, that is about as spot on as the spot on my dog spot.
I really don't know how these video game things work these days, but Tatum should be higher than an 85. That's a good rating, don't get me wrong, but this man is due to break out even more this season now that he'll probably get some more opportunities with a couple of folks no longer in his way (Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, and obviously Guerschon Yabusele or whatever that guy's name was).
So yeah, they should've made him an 88 overall. That's not up for debate, nor will any explanation be given as to why.
The numbers speak for themselves....
