Evan Fournier’s NBA2K character mocked on social media
With the NBA season approaching, NBA2K has been releasing rankings for players in the 2017 version of the popular video game. For Evan Fournier, it wasn’t the rating he had an issue with.
Fournier was assigned a rating of 78, but he was more concerned about the look of his character. The Magic guard posted a screenshot via his Twitter account and inquired who the guy wearing his jersey is.

Not surprisingly, Fournier received numerous responses after making the screenshot available. Some of them were quite hilarious. Here are a few.

A couple of people seem to think the video game version is a fairly accurate portrayal.

@EvanFourmizz well you do look like a crackhead ,,, I'm serious I don't see a lot of differences in this picture of how you really look like

For what it’s worth, Fournier had fun with it all and even had a few laughs at some of the responses he received. And, in a bit of good news, it appears Fournier will have a new look very soon.
@EvanFourmizz alright I got an explanation. We'll have a new one for you Monday

Hopefully Fournier will be pleased with the update. If not, there may be more of the same.
