Last year’s NBA rookie class exceeded all expectations in the 2018 NBA Playoffs. 

The Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell went toe-to-toe with the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Boston Celtics’ Jayson Tatum held his own against the Cleveland Cavaliers in 7 games and Ben Simmons showed the Miami Heat who was boss before Tatum’s Celtics advance to the Eastern Conference.

They were awarded greatly with 87 ratings on NBA2K19, which will be released next month.

How the heck did they get such high ratings in comparison to say…a Paul George who had an 89?

“We’re not a reputation-based game,” NBA 2K’s Ronnie2K told me on both  &’s family of networks. 

“Paul George and I are extremely close but for those second-year guys those ratings really spoke to what they did throughout the season and into the playoffs.”

Added Ronnie2K:

“Donovan [Mitchell] turned into an absolute animal, Ben [Simmons]  can do absolutely anything; even though he’s got to work on his jump shot a little and Tatum was a machine in the playoffs. I think that’s one of the biggest sticking points like a lot of the older guys are like, why are these young kids coming up on our ratings and it’s a tough thing because they do deserve it. But you could also make the argument that they have to earn it a little more too, so I see it either way.”

As for the release of NBA 2K19, Ronnie is excited.

“We’re still grinding and trying to make it even more perfect,” he said.

“I think this is going to be our best one yet after so many leaps and bounds and I can’t wait to talk about it more in the coming weeks.”
