With less than a month remaining before the official release of NBA 2K17, both fans and players alike anxiously await to see the player ratings for the upcoming year.

Luckily for fans, Los Angeles Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell wasted no time in revealing his overall rating.

It seems Russell’s improvement from last season wasn’t enough to spur a bigger jump from his 77 overall rating in last year’s game. The former second overall pick in last year’s NBA Draft turned heads in Las Vegas during the Summer League, as well as participating on the USA Select Team.

While it is unclear whether or not Russell is ok with the slight bump, having the opportunity to play as yourself is always a dream come true for any athlete. Fortunately, the creators of the game put much more emphasis on Russell’s in-game antics such as his signature ‘Ice In My Veins’ celebration.

NBA 2K17 will give Lakers fans the opportunity to purchase its Legend Edition featuring Kobe Bryant rather than Paul George, and also comes with other amenities and is set to release on Sept. 20. Pre-ordering the game will grant early access to NBA 2K17 on Sept. 16.
