LeBron James Revealed as Top Rated Player in NBA 2K16

2 Min Read

LeBron James is the best player in the NBA—at least according to NBA 2K16.

NBA 2K16 recently released their top 10 player ratings through their official Twitter account and the Cleveland Cavaliers star is ranked above every other player in the league. James was a given a 94 overall rating in the game, which is set to be released on video game consoles on September 29th.

Right behind James was none other than the Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry. Curry has a 93 overall rating in 2K16. Despite winning the MVP award and leading the Warriors to an NBA Finals victory over James’ Cavaliers, the sweet-shooting guard still couldn’t reign supreme in the ratings department.

Behind James and Curry were Anthony Davis, James Harden and Kevin Durant at the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 spots. Davis is widely regarded as the top emerging player in the NBA, while Harden was the runner-up for MVP last season. Durant is coming off an injury-riddled season which limited him to just 27 games after winning the MVP award following the 2013-14 season.

The remainder of the top 10 list was capped off by Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge.

The complete top 10 list—with player ratings—is listed below:

  1. LeBron James 94 Rating
  2. Steph Curry 93 Rating
  3. Anthony Davis 92 Rating
  4. James Harden 92 Rating
  5. Kevin Durant 91 Rating
  6. Chris Paul 90 Rating
  7. Russell Westbrook 89 Rating
  8. Carmelo Anthony 88 Rating
  9. Blake Griffin 88 Rating
  10. LaMarcus Aldridge 88 Rating
