Normally, some people are not satisfied with the ratings that are assigned to players in games like NBA 2K21, since the criteria depend on many variables that the developers value to create an overall rating that resembles the performance of the players in the real life.
The developers take into account the statistics and the performance of the players in the previous season to create the ratings that they will have in the next title of the franchise, although this year everything was different due to the consequences of the pandemic and NBA 2K21 was launched without the 2021-2022 season ratings because the previous season wasn’t over yet.
The Twitter account Hoop Central constantly reveals information about NBA 2K21 and a few days ago it revealed the list of the 10 best 3-point shooters in the game with Stephen Curry at the helm, followed by Klay Thompson and Duncan Robinson. Here we leave you the complete list:
- Stephen Curry – Golden State Warriors – 99 Overall.
- Klay Thompson – Golden State Warriors – 95 Overall.
- Duncan Robinson – Miami Heat – 92 Overall.
- J.J Redick– New Orleans Pelicans – 90 Overall.
- Damian Lillard – Portland TrailBlazers – 89 Overall.
- Seth Curry – Philadelphia 76ers – 89 Overall.
- Math Thomas – Toronto Raptors – 89 Overall.
- Derrick Walton Jr. – Philadelphia 76ers – 89 Overall.
- George Hill – Oklahoma City Thunder – 88 Overall.
- Doug McDermott – Indiana Pacers – 88 Overall.
Beyond the rating of the selected players, what most caught the attention of the users was the absence of Buddy Hield, a guard for the Sacramento Kings who won the Three-Point Contest in the 2020 season.
Besides, Hield had a 39.6% shooting percentage in three point’s shoots, so it is difficult to believe that players like George Hill or Matt Thomas have a better rating than him in this area.
However, beyond being upset with what happened, Hield used his Twitter account to give a spectacular response to the developers and their decision of not including him in the best 3-point shooters in the game.
As you can see, Buddy Hield did not care much about what happened with NBA 2K21 and played down the fact by showing off his trophy, although it is still difficult to understand how he has such low ratings in the game.
And it is unusual because many players buy NBA 2K21 MyTEAM Coins to be able to add Hield to their team in MyTEAM mode and have him as an ace up their sleeve for complicated situations, so we’ll see if their scores go up with an update.
For his part, Hield has yet to define what he will do with his future and if he will continue to be a player for the Sacramento Kings next season.
With the departure of Bogdanovic, everything indicates that Hield will have room to be one of the starters of this team and thus continue to improve his high efficiency from the three-point line, but his continuity in the team is still uncertain.
