We’ve seen the impressive new features and the revamped MyGM mode on NBA 2K18 that will be the first narrative-driven franchise mode. Now NBA 2K18 is gearing up for the 2018 season and sharing what some of the players will look like for the upcoming season as well as their ratings. The top basketball video game shared the ratings of the top two rookies coming into 2018, Lonzo Ball and Markelle Fultz. The rookies for the Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers both received a rating of 80, which is a great rating for first-year players. Last season, top picks Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram, were ranked 79 and 78 overall respectively. I’m sure people will have strong opinions on Lonzo’s rating, with some arguing that he should have a 90 rating while others will believe he should have a 60 rating.
Those new Sixers jerseys look pretty sweet.
NBA 2K18 also showed you Dwight Howard (81) rocking a Charlotte Hornets jersey and Nick Young (74) on the Golden State Warriors, helping them become an even more dangerous superteam.
Speaking of the Warriors, Steph Curry has a 94 rating and NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant has a 96, the highest rating revealed so far, but the ratings for LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and Kawhi Leonard have yet to be revealed.
Kyrie Irving is on the cover of NBA 2K18… in a Cavs jersey. Only days ago, he was on camera egging Steph Curry to mock LeBron James. He has a 90 rating in the game.
NBA 2K18 hits the court on September 19 on Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
