In brief one-on-one interviews with Thomas and Embiid, both of them are asked about what they expect their ratings should be in NBA 2K18. Thomas thinks it should be 96 but doesn't seem too upset when he finds out his actual rating in game will be 89. Embiid is surprised by his overall in the upcoming NBA 2K18, and he strongly believes that his rating should be 95 instead of the actual rating of an 86.
Embiid promises to get his rating up to a 95 during the season when 2K regularly updates player ratings based on their real-life performances. Embiid will almost certainly be the highest-rated player in the 76ers, and Ben Simmons, last year's No. 1 overall selection, won't be too far behind him. This year's No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz figures to be rated an 80 or 81, and Dario Saric and J.J. Redick should be respectable as well. So the 76ers will be a very popular NBA 2K team this year. If this team remains healthy, they would probably make some noise in the real-life Eastern Conference.
