Kings rookie Tyrese Haliburton is a problem for teams hoping to come into Sacramento and pick up an easy win. It also appears that he is a problem for the people who make player avatars on the video game NBA 2K21.
Haliburton tagged Ronnie Singh, aka @Ronnie2K in the tweet. Singh is the digital marketing director for 2K sports.
Who does Haliburton look like in the game? That’s a good question, but it certainly doesn’t resemble the Kings’ star young rookie. With Haliburton sliding to the No. 12 overall pick, maybe they used a stock avatar.
Haliburton isn’t afraid to take the big shot, whether it’s on the court, in the media or via social media. In the last month, he tweeted at President Joe Biden, won the Western Conference Rookie of the Month award and now he’s trying to force change at NBA 2K.
Is there anything this rookie can’t do?
