In honor of the NBA Playoffs, enjoy these video game comparisons of your favorite NBA players.

FIFA – Luka Doncic

Though he’s not in the playoffs this time around, Luka Doncic has been an exciting player to watch ever since he entered the league. Given the skill moves he’s already shown off in warmups and considering the fact he came across the pond, Luka Doncic as FIFA makes sense. Just look at that touch, I mean he’s practically got pillows for feet.

Fortnite – Stephen Curry

Sorry Steph! You are Fortnite embodied. That’s what you get for being so crafty. Kids look up to you. Older generations dont understand you. Undeniably though, you’re fun to watch. It goes without saying he’s changing the way the game is played and that’s definitely no small feat. Sound familiar? (Battle pass *cough* Fortnite *cough*)

Call of Duty – LeBron James

Much like Call of Duty, LeBron has been a star from the beginning. A ‘triple A’ type player. Though, with greatness, always comes controversy. While you don’t have to love him, you must, at least, respect him. After all, he will be recognized as one of the greats.

Rocket League – Ja Morant

Ja Morant fits the profile of a high flier. This makes him the perfect fit for Rocket League. Constantly, he will soar up for monstrous dunks and emphatic blocks. If he could flip reset with a basketball, he probably would. A true aerial specialist. Don’t worry Ja. Despite the Grizzlies recent first round loss to the Lakers, there is always the second chance tourney.

Fall Guys – Giannis Antetokounmpo

Seemingly innocent, but don’t let the looks and media training fool you. Like Fall Guys, Giannis is friendly and easy to approach, that is, until the game begins and the bodies start flying. After being upset by the Miami Heat, I’m sure Giannis will be laser focused on that crown next season.

WWE – Draymond Green

Specializing in clean, old-fashioned non-basketball plays. With lots of promise already displayed, a very frugal boxing/MMA career could be ahead of Draymond post-retirement.

Need For Speed – De’Aron Fox

If you’re guarding De’Aron Fox, you better pray you have a full tank of gas. You don’t get the #1 rated offense in the league without the right wheels. Fox is one of the fastest players in the league. Everything about his game screams Need For Speed. In the words of his coach,

“We wanna get out and run and we gotta let that thing fly.”

Mike Brown, Sacramento Kings Head Coach.

Despite their loss to the Warriors in the first round, it’s fair to say that basketball is back in Sacramento, baby.

In short, every player’s game has something unique to it. Something that makes them stand out. We could analyze film and pretend to be ESPN, but we’re not. Instead, we did it our way. The strangely-awesome way.
