NBA 2K18 comes out next month and players everywhere are asking for their ratings.
Among those who requested their rating in NBA 2K18 was the starting center for the Rockets, Clint Capela.
Capela enjoyed a fantastic year last season. On the season, he averaged 12.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game for the third-place Rockets. He also upped his free throw percentage from 38% in 2015-2016 to 53% last year.
It was a week ago that Clint asked Ronnie 2K to reveal his 2K rating and screenshot of his model in the game. Today, Ronnie gave him what he wanted.
Let’s take a look at the original request from Clint, first:

Here is the screenshot and rating that Capela posted today on Twitter:
Is the rating fair?
Clint’s rating in the game will be a 79 overall. This is up last year from his original 77 rating. However, Capela did hit 80 overall in last year’s game at one point. Should that be his rating this season? Probably so, he is due for a monster year in 2018.
With the Rockets acquiring Chris Paul from Los Angeles, Clint Capela will have another All-Star point guard to find him for dunks. Also, he has been hitting the weight room this summer and has put on some muscle. With these two factors, Capela has a chance to really break out and have an All-Star like season. By the end of the year, maybe look for the Swiss big man to be in the mid-80s as far as 2K18 rating.
NBA 2K18 also finally got his face scan right this season. In the past, Clint was definitely not looking like himself. You can see that in the tweet that he posted. Don’t worry, Capela, your rating should definitely have the same come up that your appearance got. Will he catch the 85 overall of Andre Drummond?
