Top 10 Rated Players
Lebron James - 97 - CONFIRMED
At the age of 34, many are wondering when or if Lebron will ever slow down his MVP caliber play. Each year he is looked as one of if not the worlds best player and has been growing in the standings of greatest of all time.
Kawhi Leonard - 97 - CONFIRMED
The NBA Finals MVP has found himself on a new home yet again, this time it is in Los Angeles but not the Lakers but instead the Clippers. Kawhi is regarded as one of the best two-way players of all time and will look for his third championship this upcoming season alongside fellow NBA star Paul George. We recently predicted Kawhi Leonard's NBA 2K20 rating.
Giannis Antetokounmpo - 96 - CONFIRMED
The leagues reigning MVP will be looking to dominate the league yet again this upcoming season. With a disappointing end to the Bucks NBA playoffs, Giannis will set out to make his first NBA Finals in a weaker Eastern Conference.
James Harden - 96 - CONFIRMED
The league's most gifted natural scorer is often talked about in a negative light due to the Houston Rockets recent demise in the playoffs, but that has not stopped Harden from putting up MVP like numbers throughout every NBA season in recent memory.
Kevin Durant - 96 - CONFIRMED
The dominant scorer has left the Golden State Warriors and has elected to team up in Brooklyn, with fellow All-Star Kyrie Irving. Durant will be sidelined for the majority of the 2019-2020 season due to a severe injury he suffered in the Finals, but will undoubtedly be one of the best players when he returns.
Steph Curry - 95 - CONFIRMED
The former MVP was unable to captivate his third straight championship but will look to rebound this upcoming season as yet again the focal point of the Warriors offense.
Anthony Davis - 94 - CONFIRMED
The cover star of this year’s installment is one of the leagues brightest and most dominant power forwards in recent time. Teaming up with Lebron James in LA will perhaps give Davis the push he needs to be discussed as one of the best players in the NBA again.
Paul George - 93 - CONFIRMED
George was once in MVP discussion but dipped off towards the back end of the year but is still regarded as an elite two-way star of the NBA. A blockbuster trade will now see him dawn a jersey next to Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard where the two look to become the best team in LA yet again.
