  1. He’s a 94 because he’s listed as a SF in game. The roster team SHOULD have him listed as a PF but doesn’t look like it’ll happen. Hopefully the roster team will look to recalculate how they average the overall for players. Currently the scale hinders stretch 4’s & Athletic non rebounding PF’s. That is why you see such a change in overall when switching Giannis from SF to PF along with any shooters who are SF now playing PF.
    That photo of him and his brothers flexing the other day probably made the 2K art department all let out a burst of expletives knowing how much more static they're going to get from the fans now.

    STRENGTHS
    Versatile enough to play all five positions on both sides of the court (though poor shooting makes him a less than ideal wing). If the jumper ever develops he'll be unstoppable.
    WEAKNESSES
    While improved, after five seasons he is still a terrible shooter. This facilitated his move to PF, where his frame can be an issue at times defensively.

    He’s definitely gone beyond lean at this point.

    You can say the arm is fully contracted so it accentuates the mass, but that’s bulk.

    I think this picture is a little deceiving though. Dude looks big no doubt but most people are going to look a little bigger when they're getting a pump at the gym and holding heavy dumbbells. In most cases on the court he's not going to look as big unless he's flexing.
    Working out with a pump going, literally holding weight and flexing in the picture is going to make him appear much larger than he does on the basketball court. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that he will look about the same size this year as he did last year. Which is still a lean muscular guy.
    2K still doesn't get it smh. What do they have against muscle definition? If anybody deserves to look ripped it's Giannis. You would think they would get his body type right being that he's the cover guy 🤨

    As a guy that works out too much, that picture is very deceiving. My pump after a grueling workout compared to my muscle definition on a normal day is a huge difference. He’s holding at least 40 lbs weights AND he just finished working out. Even the bros looking swollish..
    He’s a lean muscular build and does not have a body like a body builder.. He does have a muscular body for a basketball player though.

    I'm not sure this is the best screenshot to go by to determine muscle definition. Even ripped people aren't going to look ripped if their arms are by their side and muscles are relaxed.

    Hope this link works, but in this real life picture of Giannis there is little to no muscle definition because he isn't flexing similar to the screenshot. Now if we see a 2k19 screenshot of Giannis throwing down a monster jam or celebrating in a way that would cause his muscles to flex and he still has zero muscle definition then I will 100% agree with you. I just don't think this particular screenshot is a fair indication of muscle definition.

    Yh was just about to say this. If you workout you know during and after a workout you got the "pump" going. I'm sure that's why he look bigger in that pick. He's definitely added some muscle mass since he came in the league, but he doesn't have no body builder look or anything.

    The screenshot should be a good representation. He is yelling in the screenshot, which is usually accompanied by flexing. Even the picture you posted where he isn't flexing has more definition than the screenshot.

    I don't get why everyone has a pinkish tone to them ? The muscle definition is lacking as well..

    This is better compared to the Jayson Tatum screenshot, he looks like cinder from Killer Instinct. Lol

    Length has been the issue with 2k player models for a long time. Making the shorts slightly shorter and less baggy last year helped but its going to take a complete overhaul of the players skeleton structure to fix it. Unfortunately i cant see that happening until next gen
