Ahead of tonight’s NBA London Game 2019 Frank Ntilikina answered media question about NBA 2K, impact of European players on the NBA and what it would be like for him to play an NBA game in Paris.

Q: Do you play NBA 2K?

FN: Yeah I play 2K. I play against my teammates a lot. I like playing the career mode as well.

Q: What do you think about your rating (72)?

FN: It’s not great and I want to improve on it. I’m gonna work really hard this season and get my rating up.

Q: Is it nice to play in this game in London and with it televised in over 200 countries around the world?

FN: It’s really nice. Firstly just being able to travel around the world thanks to the NBA and play in another country is amazing and a blessing. To be this close to my hometown is even better.

Q: Would it be a dream to play an NBA game in Paris?

FN: Yeah it definitely would. Anywhere in the world would be amazing but Paris in particular would be very special for me. I hope the Knicks would be chosen should there be a game there.

Q: Is it one of the best times for European players in the NBA at the moment?

FN: Yes. Giannis [Antetokounmpo] and Nikola [Jokic] in particular as they doing so well. They’re representing Europe so well but it can only get better. A lot of people are coming from Europe and the young players in Europe are getting better and that’s the goal to represent our countries in the right way.
