Even if you’re diehard Clippers or Griffin fan, you have to get a chuckle out of this. It’s amazing.
This isn’t the first time 2K Sports has comically adjusted a player’s rating for an off-court incident either.
Back in 2010, the popular video game lowered San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker’s "Loyalty" rating from an 87 to a 0 after reports that he cheated on his then-wife Eva Longoria.
Though the "Loyalty" has to do with a player’s loyalty to re-signing to a team — and the "Hands" rating is in reference to a player being able to catch a pass or grab a rebound — 2K found a way to have fun and playfully chime in on a controversial sports issue.
One can assume Griffin’s "Hands" rating will return to 97 — or somewhere around there — when he returns in four to six weeks, but in the meantime, we can all have a good laugh at a joke about an unfortunate situation.
Well played, 2K Sports. Well played.
