This year’s edition of NBA 2K is taking realism in video games to another level.
NBA 2K23 got released last Friday, and Lakers star Anthony Davis was one of the first NBA players to showcase the game on Twitch. While streaming the game for the first time, Davis, who is known for being injury-prone in real life, got injured in the game.

Last year Davis saw the Lakers miss the playoffs after he missed 42 games due to injury.
Davis has been nicknamed “street clothes” by Charles Barkley due to missing so many games in his career.
“I call him Anthony “Steet Clothes” Davis cause he’s always in street clothes.

Despute his issues with injury, 2k still rated Davis a 90 overall.
