There may be no better indicator of where we stand as a society than strides in cancer research video game avatars.

Every year, we’re given a glimpse into how closely the human species is integrating with digitized technology and using the information to predict when reality will fully merge with simulation and everything we’ve ever loved will be converted into a binary code of 1’s and 0’s.

If this inevitable reality spooks you, fear not internet friend. We have time, if Evan Fournier’s NBA Live Mobile ’22 is any indication.

It’s important to note that this is the mobile version avatar, but still, there really is no excuse to go full Eric Andre On A Bad Acid Trip on the newly-minted New York Knick.

People are confusing NBA Live’s obvious beef with Fournier with the more technologically-advanced NBA2K franchise, who didn’t do him any favors back in 2017 either, when he looked like he’d risk it all for a hot meal.


This is Fournier’s more representative avatar on NBA 2k, where the 28-year-old shooting guard has a rating of 79.

It appears everything I said at the top of this article was rubbish. The robots are coming. Batten down the hatches.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
