A bit of healthy competition never hurt anybody, but when it's a family member, you always want to come out as the victor.
Unfortunately for Pau Gasol, he will once again - for the fourth consecutive year - have to deal with the fact that his brother Marc is better on 2k.
The two Spaniards have forged names for themselves as two of the best big men in the NBA today, but Marc appears to have the upper hand within the gaming community right now.
Despite injury limiting him to 52 regular season appearances and no playoff action, the younger Gasol brother has been handed an 85 rating on NBA 2k17 while new San Antonio Spurs player Pau is one point back.
The brothers have seen their ratings fall from last year but the Memphis Grizzlies man still has the bragging rights, although Pau can always fall back on his two championship rings and his six All-Star game selections.
However, while attending an NBA 2k17 event in Madrid, Spain the elder brother jokingly said he was 'pissed' about the rating.
Pau has dropped two ratings from 86 last year but still holds a stronger position that four years ago when he was all the way down at 80. Marc has dropped one from 2k16 and holds the same rating he did in 2015.
