Among Kobe Bryant's career milestones is having appeared in every NBA 2K game to date.

But in the upcoming NBA 2K16 edition, the Black Mamba's player rating of 85 is his lowest yet.

According to numbers reported by CBS Sports, his player rating has been on a steady decline since peaking at 99 in NBA 2K9, dropping to 93 by NBA 2K13, where it remained until falling to 89 in NBA 2K15.

Bryant will be entering his 20th NBA season this October, coming off back-to-back season-ending injuries.
