And I'm also thinking that specifically, he was really upset 2K23 MT about being given a score of 88 points. But do you know the most interesting thing is? That was still tied for the second highest rating. It's the challenge being a member of a team who's leaps and bounds ahead of everybody, like how do you handle that? Steph since 2015 has made more than 10 times more three-pointers than anyone else in the league. At some point would the scoring not be 10% higher than everybody elsewhere in the league? How do we deal with this? I'm thinking that he's simply fell off that scale."
Singh added that these ratings are something that players really take interest in, which leads to a an atmosphere of excitement among both players and fans. The result was Kevin Durant's recent rant about his overall rating, and how it was somehow less than 99. "I'm sure you've seen KD's tweet too," Singh said. "You know what's hilarious you and Kevin are actually extremely close friends. He's among the four NBA players that were present at my wedding. We were messaging literally the night before, and then that rating climbed and all of a sudden he was upset."
"Look, KD has been playing for 14 years now, he gets the game. It's not like KD is upset over it, I think it's a way to spark dialogue. But he doesn't need to, he's one of the most famous athletes in the world, however I believe his participation in that conversation is a way to show how much he loves our game, and loves the relationship that we have.
To just involve himself in something that the guy doesn't actually care about but knows his fans care about and that's awesome for him. I have more respect for that guy than pretty much anybody I know. ""I believe that the NBA allows us so much opportunity to only be scratching the surface. There are so many stories to tell. When you think of the causes of social injustice how we were able to respond to that? We have a real-world perspective that plays into our games about it," Singh said.
Using an example from the game that integrates his personal life, specifically his wedding plans, Singh illuminated how NBA2K integrates so many elements of life within their sport. "That's how we try to create our game and I think our Buy 2K MT sport is better than other sport in terms how you take care of the people that play it," Singh said.
