Ja Morant receives 1st 2K Rating

Is Morant’s 2K20 rating too high or too low?

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies-Press Conference Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

Who else is ready to play with the Memphis Grizzlies in NBA 2K20?

Throwing lobs with Ja Morant to Jaren Jackson Jr., Brandon Clarke, or Josh Jackson is going to be epic. So will jamming over the top of an opposing big man with Ja Morant. You can also slow it down in the half-court and bully people in the post with Jonas Valanciunas or Jaren Jackson Jr.

We got our first domino for the NBA 2K20 game, as 2nd overall pick Ja Morant received his first-ever 2K rating.

Honestly, that’s pretty solid for a rookie point guard, regardless of draft selection. It did make me feel better than no other rookie, besides Zion Williamson, was rated higher than Ja.

In my professional 2K opinion, I think you have to earn an overall in the 80’s — sorry, I don’t think Zion is an 81 overall player immediately. Regardless of ranking, Morant will be a dynamic 2K player with his shifty ball-handling, jaw-dropping athleticism, and juicy dimes.

Besides, it’s not about where your rating starts, but it’s how it finishes. With the “dynamic rating” feature, Morant can easily rise to the low-to-mid 80’s by the end of the year, making him one of the better point guards to play with in the game.

Enough about my opinion of his rating ... here’s what Morant thinks about his 2K rating:
