NBA 2K19 dropped some big things this week. Not only did the 2K Prelude release so gamers can get a taste of the game, they also showed every team’s starting lineup with their ratings. This gave gamers a closer look at what the teams will be like and who they’ll have a better chance of winning with this year. There also may be more arguments about ratings, but I’m sure not everybody is going to look dissect every single rating as of now. As for the Atlanta Hawks, we already knew about two of the starters ratings. Now, we get a chance to assess the other three that fill out the lineup.
No love for the Hawks
The Hawks were ONE of the worst teams in the league last year, but not the worst (that trophy goes to the Phoenix Suns). This year it seems like 2K has decided that the Hawks will be the worst team this season, or maybe just having the worst starting lineup. Nobody on the Hawks starting lineup has a rating higher than 80. The highest rating is John Collins at 79. The only other team that doesn’t have a higher rating over 80 are the Sacramento Kings. They have two players at 79 and two at 78. That makes their starting lineup slightly better than the Hawks.
Any future luck?
There’s a good chance these Hawks players won’t have the same rating throughout the season. As they play and progress, 2K will make sure to change their rating to compliment how they’re playing in real life. Taurean Prince probably has the best chance to make the biggest improvement to his rating and could be in the low to mid-80s at the end of the season. Collins and Trae Young’s rating will improve as well since they’ll play a big part on the team. Kent Bazemore is a 77 overall, and his rating could drop more than rise by the end of the season, depending on his role on the team. The same could be said for Dewayne Dedmon, whose rating is also a 77. We’ll just have to see how the season pans out.
When the entire roster drops (which will most likely happen when the official game comes out), I’ll make sure to do a review. Anyways, is anybody excited for 2K19? I know I am.
