The NBA 2K19 player ratings are coming at a rapid pace now that Team 2K has been revealed. This week, we learned Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown would be an 84 overall when the game launches on September 11, and Miami Heat 3-and-D spark plug Josh Richardson is at a 78. A lot of fans have raved about the Golden State Warriors lineup, and with good reason, but the Celtics are shaping up to be quite the squad in 2K19 as well. Second-year star-in-the-making Jayson Tatum will be rated an 87. He is perhaps the most-overrated player thus far amongst the early reveals.
Since Richardson's announcement, rapper and producer Sean "Diddy" Combs and professional Golden State Warriors professional basketball player Stephen Curry have expressed interest on Twitter in buying the team, bringing on free agent Colin Kaepernick – the football player who instigated the NFL player kneeling protests against social injustices in 2016 – as "competition" to the Panthers starting quarterback Cam Newton. But Richardson said he will not "entertain" any buyers' interests until the season is over.
Richardson announced in June that he had been diagnosed with brain cancer in May. As he battled the disease, he kept working, encouraging Oregonians to register to vote, using social media as a pro-democracy tool and overseeing audits done by his office's audit team. As secretary of state, Richardson was Oregon's top elections official.
Earlier this year, Richardson appointed a special House panel to investigate Greteins after media reported details about Greitens' extramarital affair in 2015 and his use of a charity donor list for his gubernatorial campaign. Under Richardson's leadership, the Legislature had convened a special session for the House to consider whether to impeach Greitens in a quest to oust him from office. That ended when Greitens decided to voluntarily leave.
