Ronnie 2K Explains Jimmy Butler’s Wildly High 2K24 Rating

After a stellar season and arguably the best of his career, Jimmy Butler scored the highest 2K rating he’s ever received in NBA 2K24 – a 95.

Only six other players got higher scores than Butler and he shares the 95 rating with Jayson Tatum and Luka Doncic.

Despite falling short in the NBA Finals against the Nuggets, Butler earned an impressive rating, which Digital Marketing Director for 2K Games Ronnie Singh, better known as Ronnie 2K has broken down.

“I think the one that got a lot of conversation going was Jimmy Butler at 95,” Singh said on Fansided. “I definitely saw that on social media. Look, Jimmy obviously — he is a one-man crew. I mean, obviously he’s got great teammates, but he really stood out in the playoffs, and that sample size of the games there really made an argument for Jimmy Buckets. So, really interesting to see him at 95, and that really got the community talking.”

The rating received mixed reactions from NBA fans and many couldn’t fathom that him and Luka have the same score and some X / Twitter users claimed “it doesn’t sit right with them.”

Other fans labelled the decision as “silly”, “disgusting” and “phony” but others say it was well deserved. So each to their own.

Butler himself was pretty chuffed to learn that he’d earned such a high score for the game that is set be released early next month.

“I fw jimmy butler and I respect all that he’s done in his career and his upbringing! But a 95 for a 2k rating type crazy,” Former NBA forward Evan Turner said of Butler’s rating on Twitter.

The small forward has slowly but surely increased his rating year-on-year. Back in the 2013 version of the game he had a rating of 67.

So to now have a rating of 95 it shows the development he’s had as a player.

Himmy Buckets ran the Heat last season and went to another level in the postseason.

He averaged 22.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists on 53.9 shooting from the field and 35 from three but that jumped to 26.9 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists during the postseason.

Though his shooting numbers weren’t quite as a good in the playoffs – 46.8 shooting from the field and 35.9 shooting from three.
