In honor of his MVP season, Stephen Curry will have his ratings maxed out on NBA 2K16.

Under Armour, who sponsors Curry, made the announcement Tuesday. Curry will have his overall rating bumped to 99, which Under Armour claims will make him “the greatest shooter” in the history of the game.

Is 2K going to max out only Steph’s shooting rating? Or will all of his attributes be maxed out? The announcement leaves that part a little unclear.

Either way, it makes sense for Steph to get the ratings boost—he’s been outperforming video-game models all season long.
