Lonzo Ball Tumbles, Kristaps Porzingis Rises in Latest NBA 2K18 Roster Update

The folks over at 2K have released their latest roster update for NBA 2K18, and while there are a lot of updates being made, the company took the time to focus on some of the biggest risers and fallers for the latest update.

As you can tell from the tweet above, Knicks superstar Kristaps Porzingis is perhaps the biggest beneficiary of the update, as this update brings him up from an overall of 88 to a 91, making him one of the few 90-rated stars in the game. Grizzlies Tyreke Evans and Phoenix Suns T.J. Warren also entered the realm of the 80’s after both saw a ratings increase of 4.

On the “fallers” side, the highly touted Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball continues to tumble, as he falls to an overall of 77, joining Cavs veteran Dwyane Wade who also dropped 3 points.
