Klay urges Ronnie 2K to boost 3-point shooting rating


Klay Thompson has made it clear that he does not approve of his 3-point rating in the new NBA 2K23 video game.

After winning the 3-point challenge along with Warriors teammate Steph Curry at the 2022 NBA Japan Games, Thompson called out Ronnie Singh, the public face for the video-game franchise known as "Ronnie 2K."

“Ronnie 2K, change my 3-point rating right now," Thompson said with a laugh. "Right now, hater!”

Singh tweeted out the video with the hashtag "#RentFree" and changed his Twitter profile picture to an image of Thompson.

Thompson was given an 88 rating for 3-point shooting. It's tied for the second-best sniper rating in the game -- along with Memphis Grizzlies forward Desmond Bane, Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant and Los Angeles Clippers guard Luke Kennard -- but a distant second place behind Curry (99).

Shortly after the ratings were announced, Thompson went to Instagram to vocalize his beef with the video game developer, referring to them as “bums" and that the product has been "doo doo" since Sega Dreamcast.

Ronnie 2K clapped back by saying he knows for a fact Thompson plays the video game because he sees the Warriors star's account logging heavy hours. 

Luckily for Thompson, NBA 2K23 ratings will be updated throughout the season. He's off to a great start, winning the 3-point challenge with Curry over Warriors teammates Moses Moody and Jordan Poole. Thompson nailed eight of 11 attempts from downtown in the contest, and Curry swished nine of 11.

Thompson won't be passing up Curry's rating in the video game. But the other three players? We like his chances.
