Arrow Kyrie and Westbrook have the same rating in 2k19 (93 LOL)





Kyrie, whos a worse scorer, rebounder, playmaker, defender than Westbrook somehow has the same rating in 2k19


Someone in 2K dun f*cked up


How the hell does a dude that never led a team to the playoffs and never played a playoff game without LeBron have the same rating as Westbrook who averaged a triple double in back to back seasons?



Westbrook is better at every aspect of basketball outside of 3 point shooting




Kyrie should AT BEST be a 85-85 rating, outside the Top 7 for PGs

If you ignore overall shooting, scoring skillset, ball-handling, and clutch scoring/performance then sure I guess. Kyrie can give you 25ppg on 48-49% shooting. I'm sure he could shoot 20+ times like Russell has done and put up 28-30ppg if he was inclined to shoot that much. Dude shoots better from the field, the 3ball, and the line.

Westbrook is not a proven finals contender. Kyrie is. In fact, Kyrie may be one of the most composed, relaxed players in the finals of all time not named Jordan.

Which is even more remarkable when you consider that he had absolutely no prior playoff experience before 2015 to even build that level of poise.

2K rating isn't measured the same way it was in the past. I think it shows the player's rating versus other players in the league instead of the player's skill rating.

Westbrook has a down year last year. I kind of expect him to bounce back to a top 5 level guy. The roles are pretty well defined and Westbrook doesn’t have to defer again with just George+Adams. Dennis will hoist up shots when he’s on the bench, no one else needs much more than 5 shot attempts

Westbrook shouldn't get good ratings for stat padding.
