John Wall made it well known he was not happy with his rating for NBA 2K18 in a series of tweets directed at Ronnie Singh, an employee of 2K Sports who has made a name for himself on social media as a guy who represents the gaming franchise under the alias 'Ronnie 2K.'
Last month, after it was revealed that Wall would be a 90 in NBA 2K18, he blasted Ronnie 2K on Twitter, calling him "a joke." Ronnie 2K responded by assuring Wall his rating would likely rise through periodic updates the game makes throughout the course of the season.
But Ronnie didn't have his facts straight and, perhaps unexpectedly, Wall knew the specifics of where his rating began last season and where it ended. Ronnie said Wall finished as a 93, but Wall knew he topped out at 90.
Everyone saw the exchange on Twitter, but as Wall explained on Friday, the conversation then transitioned to direct messages.
"I don't really care for games. I play them for fun. He just tried to say my rating was a 93 when it ended last year. No, it wasn't. It was a 90," Wall said. "Well, so what? Then, he sent me a DM after and was like 'I'm just playing.' I was like 'don't try to be friendly with me.'"
Wall said he never hit Ronnie back with a response.
"He said it's a joke and I didn't respond. I didn't respond to him. I knew he was going to send a DM," Wall said.
Most NBA players love Ronnie, who goes by 'Ronnie 2K,' and his social media accounts reflect that. But Wall will find motivation in whoever slights him. Currently, Ronnie 2K is the subject of that ire.
