During the "Run The Neighborhood" event in New York City, San Antonio Spurs' Danny Green was among a bevy of NBA players to catch the most hyped basketball video game title this season - NBA 2K18.

While at the event, Danny had a chance to talk about the much-hyped game, and revealed he is not much of a gamer as well as a player who doesn't fret over his rating.

“I’m not a big gamer, I do play but I’m not a guy who worries about the rating. As long as they put me in the game — I know that they put me in better than I am in real life. So if they can put me in the game where I can shoot it pretty well, and play defense then I am happy. It’s always fun and interesting to watch."

Spoken like a true Spur not worrying about trivial things in life.

But then again, this is the digital world.

Whether it be the popular NFL video game series "Madden" or "NBA 2K", professional players more and more are becoming active and do watch their ratings.

Even retired NBA players ,like Rick Fox, have invested in professional gaming leagues. Nevertheless, the younger generation of NBA players are totally invested in their ratings

Speaking of the young NBA generation, Green knows a thing or two about them. In fact, he says he doesn't have to play a video game or keep up with the ratings to know just how good they are in real life.

“Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Steph Curry, those guys are video game players in real life. They shoot from crazy range, make a lot of shots, and make a lot of crazy moves. There is a reason why their rating in NBA 2K18 is in the 90’s, they are actually real life video game guys.”
