When the NBA 2K20 ratings for the top 20 players arrived last week, it left questions over what numbers other stars have. However, 2K allowed players that wanted to know their ratings in the game to get at them on Twitter for the inside info. With that came even more players ratings revealed online. In addition, there were several players reacting to the new numbers they’ll have in NBA 2K20.
What other players’ numbers are confirmed?
Fans already saw the NBA 2K20 ratings reveal where LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard topped the list with 97 OVRs. Other stars in the top 10 included James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, and Anthony Davis.
In all, that reveal show last Monday provided a look at the top 20 NBA players in the upcoming game. Ben Simmons was also revealed as an 87 and just missed the top 20 during the reveal show. After that livestream, 2K asked players to tweet them if they wanted to know their ratings.
Detroit Pistons star Andre Drummond rated as an 86 OVR. A point below Drummond was Trae Young who has an 85 OVR heading into his sophomore season.
Denver Nuggets’ guard Jamal Murray has an 84 for the new game while recent Toronto Raptors champion Marc Gasol is an 82. His teammate Serge Ibaka is an 81 overall for the NBA 2K20 title.
Other players revealed include the Suns’ Ricky Rubio (78), Magic’s Terrence Ross (79), the Nuggets’ Monte Morris (77) and Juancho Hernangomez (74), as well as the Hornets’ Willy Hernangonez (76).
Check out many of these players in the listings over at the 2KRatings website.
Andre Drummond, Trae Young react to NBA 2K20 ratings
The Atlanta Hawks’ Trae Young showed plenty of impressive skills during his rookie season including long-range shots and incredible stat lines. He came in as runner-up in the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award race with the Dallas Mavs’ Luka Doncic getting that win. Heading into the new season, Trae Young will have an 85 in the NBA 2K20 ratings. He took that number in stride with a simple reply in his tweet to 2K.
Andre Drummond is a double-double machine on the regular for the Detroit Pistons, and led the league in rebounding last season. Along with Blake Griffin, he helped the Detroit Pistons become a playoff contender in 2019. That Pistons team should continue to play very well in the coming season. Despite a lower number than he started 2K19 with, Drummond isn’t sweating where he landed in the NBA 2K20 ratings.
After that rating with the screenshot was posted, at least a few fans came to Dre’s defense. One pointed out that it was a lack of respect from 2K based on what the big man showed last season stats-wise. However, Drummond summed it up quite well for how all pro athletes need to view these video game ratings.
Both Trae Young and Andre Drummond were ranked outside of this year’s top 20 players in the NBA 2K20 ratings. However both players have the abilities to boost those numbers and put their names in the conversation.
Just as with other video game titles, the ratings in the games start out a certain way before the season. The skill-based numbers go up or down all based on what the players actually do on the court. So all NBA players will have plenty of chances to impact their ratings as the NBA season unfolds. However, most players aren’t really using that as their motivation to perform well on the hardwood.
The new NBA 2K20 soundtrack also arrived this past weekend with 30 tracks now streaming on Spotify. In addition, 2K announced new gear partners for the upcoming game which arrives in September for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PCs.
