NBA 2K20 is hours away from release to try to calm NBA fans while the season arrives. After the biggest offseason roster shakeup in league history, NBA 2K brings us another installment of their successful franchise, which looks very interesting.
It’s time to break down the best players per position so that fans can get their teams ready for this upcoming season that is set to be the most entertaining in the last 10 years.
Today, it is the turn of the players in charge of creating the plays, assisting his teammates and run the offense. We’re going to let you know the 10 best point guards in NBA 2K20.
T9. John Wall – 86
Wall is sidelined right now after suffering a ruptured Achilles last February. He probably won’t play a single game next season, but his reputation goes beyond any injury. Wall has been one of the most reliable point guards in the league in recent years. Last season he had a 90 overall rating, but his injury and the overwhelming season his team had even when he was active, made the guys in 2K rating at 86 this year.
T9. De’Aaron Fox – 86
De’Aaron Fox is seen as one of the biggest NBA stars for the future and we can start to see how good he’s become and how much potential he has with his 86 overall rating. Last season he played 81 games with the exciting Sacramento Kings, averaging 17.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game. This season he’s expected to make his team a playoff contender, but we still have to wait and see if that happens.
T6. Mike Conley – 87
Just like Fox, Mike Conley wasn’t on this list last year, but he made sure to inscribed his name on the best 2K20 point guards. Last season he played his final one with the Memphis Grizzlies, getting traded to the Utah Jazz in July. Conley finished last season averaging 21.1 points (career-high). 3.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game. He landed in the Jazz, a team keen to make some noise next season, and this guy will be very helpful for them.
T6. D’Angelo Russell – 87
When everybody thought his career was almost over, D’Angelo Russell showed that he’s ready to become a big name in the league, earning his first All-Star call last season. D’Lo played nothing but great with the Brooklyn Nets, becoming one of the best point guards in the league. You can tell how good he was by checking on this list. He’s now set to join Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in which is set to be a very fun backcourt.
T6. Ben Simmons – 87
Ben Simmons’ overall rating didn’t have any changes from last season. He’s been improving his game, but not so much to earn a higher rating in 2K20. However, this offseason he took things to a different level, working on his jump shot, trying to add another weapon to his arsenal that will take them at the top of the league. Last season he averaged 16.9 points, 8.8 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game, leading his Sixers to the East semifinals, where Kawhi Leonard eliminated them.
5. Kemba Walker – 88
After spending his entire NBA career with the Charlotte Hornets, Kemba Walker is set to lead the Boston Celtics to a title after signing a 4-year, $141 million with the C’s. Kemba has been one of the most reliable point guards around the league in recent years, but his struggling team didn’t help him to become a huge star. Last season he posted 25.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. Walker earned an 88 overall rating this year, two points higher than in 2019.
4. Russell Westbrook – 90
Russell Westbrook was No. 2 on this list last season, but Brodie couldn’t keep the expectations. His Oklahoma City Thunder was eliminated by Damian Lillard and his Portland Trail Blazers in the first round of the playoffs. Now Westbrook is set to take on a new challenge in Houston, team up with James Harden and take his new squad to the promised land.
3. Kyrie Irving – 91
After spending the last two seasons with the Boston Celtics, Kyrie Irving is set to take the Brooklyn Nets to the top of the league, even if they don’t count with Kevin Durant. Irving has been one of the best three-point guards in the league, and this season people expect him to have an MVP-caliber season. He’s the third-best point guard in 2K20 with a 91 overall rating. Last campaign he averaged 23.8 points, 5 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game.
2. Damian Lillard – 92
NBA fans often see Damian Lillard as an overlooked player, but the Oakland native has made sure to change everybody’s mind with his displays over the last couple of seasons. Last season was incredibly good for Lillard, who took his team to the Western Conference Finals, earning a 92 overall rating in 2K20. Lillard is the second-best point guard in the league following an outstanding campaign, recording 26.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 6.6 assists per outing.
1. Stephen Curry – 95
This one was a given. Nobody else could replace Stephen Curry atop of this list. The Golden State Warriors point guard has been the best in position for quite some time now. He was the leader of this list with the exact same rating of 95, and he’s set to keep his dominance over the rest of point guards. Curry once again led the Warriors to the Finals last season, posting 28.2 points, 6 rebounds and 5.7 assists per encounter.
