Thomas is ?one of the top point guards in the league? despite being a 6th man as he averaged 19 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.1 rebounds within 21 games, Boston reported.

Hassan Whiteside

According to a source from Gameranx, this decision was made because 2K sport ?received feedback that players were rated too high, giving no room for progression.?
