Share this:

If you’re not a sports fan or sports game fan, then there’s a very good possibility that player ratings and their importance is lost on you. However, for those who are both (like me!), then it’s quite a big deal. 

Today, the official NBA 2K Twitter account revealed the top 10 NBA 2K18 best players based on ratings. Most of the choices are no-brainers, with some people possibly arguing why X player is on the list and why he shouldn’t be.

Now, if that wasn’t enough to fuel your NBA 2K18 arguments with your friends, maybe the top 30 list will! Thanks to DimeMag, we have the top 30 NBA 2K18 best players based on their in-game ratings!

As you can see, some players are tied in the same spot. Six NBA players are left out of the top 30 and they are Joel Embiid (Philadelphia), Kemba Walker (Charlotte), Andrew Wiggins (Minnesota), Kristaps Porzingis (New York), Devin Booker (Phoenix), C.J. McCollum (Portland), Andre Drummond (Detroit) and LaMarcus Aldridge (San Antonio). 

Did Visual Concepts nail it right? I can’t say for sure. And remember: it’s not the player rating, but how you play that determines who wins or not, alright? But then again, a player’s effectiveness is only as good as his in-game rating.
