Two of the young Knicks, Frank Ntilikina and Willy Hernangomez, took to Twitter on Thursday to promote their NBA 2K18 player ratings.
The player ratings for NBA 2K18 keep coming out leading up to the game’s release on Sept. 19. Kristaps Porzingis already received his own rating, jumping from an 80 to an 86. The latest Knicks to take to Twitter are youngsters Frank Ntilikina and Willy Hernangomez.
New York’s rookie point guard said he was “#Blessed” to have his 74 rating. He mentions playing the game since he was young. Your first 2K rating is always a big deal.

Hernangomez announced on his own Twitter that he has a rating of 77. His brother Juancho —a power forward for the Denver Nuggets— is a 74.
Willy seems to be happy with his rating but also encouraged that it will be even higher at some point.

It’s a good thing that those two are interested in their ratings. It’d be weird if they didn’t care about things like that.
Like most NBA players, Ntilikina and Hernangomez probably play a lot of video games. Even the 35-year-old Dwyane Wade is chirping about his rating. It’s clearly a big deal.
