John Wall had a season to remember in 2016/17 as he led the Washington Wizards to a Conference Semi-Finals berth and a game seven with the Boston Celtics.
The 26-year-old was named an All-Star for the fourth time in his career and posted 18.8 points and 9.2 assists per game.
Oft considered the best point guard in the Eastern Conference, you’d expect Wall to be in the upper echelons when it comes to the virtual ratings of basketball’s premium game; NBA 2K18.
The North Carolina native has been handed a 90 rating, but is not happy. He tweeted digital marketing director Ronnie Sing, also known as “Ronnie 2K” to express his feelings.
Wall tweeted: “U a joke!!” It seemed like Ronnie wanted no part in the beef as he tried to remind Wall that, at least to his knowledge, the point guard was rated 93 at the end of NBA 2K17. But Wall hit back, saying “nice try” and reminding Ronnie that he was only a 90 on the previous game.
You best believe the Wizards star never forgets. He once hit back at Atlanta Hawks star Dennis Schroder two-years after the original post from the German guard.
The only way Wall will be able to increase his rating on the game is by balling out on the hardwood this season. The Wizards will be expected to challenge for a semi-finals berth once again and the fans’ hopes will rest on the shoulders of Wall and his backcourt partner Bradley Beal.
The east is weaker than ever before and the Cavaliers are in a spot of bother with the uncertainty over Kyrie Irving’s future. Whether the Wizards are unable to take advantage, though, is a whole other story.
