There is no connection between the level of basketball playing and the ability to play NBA 2K.
Initially when NBA 2K announced the tournament and seed ratings according to individual stats along with the number of years the player played, Kevin Durant became the No.1 seed.
Right behind him are 3 seeds including Trae Young, Hassan Whiteside and Donovan Mitchell. In the end, all four top seeds were eliminated from the first or second round, including the failure of Kevin Durant’s first match.
Devin Booker and DeAndre Ayton, the two finalists, are No.5 and No.10, respectively. And Patrick Beverley is even the number 14 seed despite reaching the semi-finals.
This proves the seed ranking system of NBA 2K Players Tournament needs to be changed because obviously the level of playing in real life and in the game is very different.
