When it comes to video games and sports, the two are intrinsically connected through the yearly releases video game developers put out every year for their given sport.
Most athletes — and especially NBA athletes — are major fans of these games and are extremely protective of their overall rating in the game. So much so in fact, those players will do whatever they can to get it raised in-game, from befriending some of the members of the development team, to actively tweeting out community managers to raise their overall (Hassan Whiteside anyone?)
So that’s why, when a player is rated among the worst players in the game for that given year, it cannot be a fun experience. Alas, there has to be a player that is the worst in the game, and even if they were rated 94 overall but everyone else was rated 95 and above, they’d still take offense.
