It’s time to continue ranking the best players in each position in the new installment of the successful NBA 2K franchise. We have covered a lot of ground with NBA 2K20, but we still have things to discuss in this new video game.
Now it’s time to go check the frontcourt, the players who go at it in the paint to score and prevent rivals from scoring. We’ve seen point guards, shooting guards and small forwards, and now is the turn of the power forwards, a position where we can find very talented players who currently are or are on their way to becoming stars in the NBA.
Albeit there is a big difference between the first spot and the rest of the list, we can find a lot of quality in this ranking. Here are the 10 best power forwards in NBA 2K20.
10. Julius Randle – 83
Julius Randle is one of those players who are still young, but you see them as veterans. The 24-year-old power forward has already played for the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans, but now it’s ready to take on a new challenge with the New York Knicks, trying to take the team to compete for something next season. Randle is always trying to improve his game and to be in better shape every season, earning an 83 overall rating in 2K20.
9. Kyle Kuzma – 84
When we talk about future stars, this is the type of players we’re talking about. Kyle Kuzma made sure to demonstrate he was ready for the NBA as soon as he landed in the league, forming a great duo with his friend and former teammate Lonzo Ball. Ball was traded this offseason to the New Orleans Pelicans, but Kuzma survived that move and stayed with the Lakers. He’s expected to be the third star of the team this upcoming season, getting an 84 overall rating from the 2K team.
8. John Collins – 84
John Collins is a very good talent who doesn’t draw the same attention as Kuzma or other young players. Nevertheless, the 21-year-old has shown his quality on the floor with the Atlanta Hawks, creating a great partnership with Trae Young that is expected to take his team to fly again in a couple of seasons. He’s a very good rebounder, a versatile player with a bright future ahead, which made him receive an 84 overall rating in 2K20.
7. Tobias Harris – 85
Tobias Harris’ career has been improving ever since he entered the NBA. The 27-year-old has played in several teams around the league but has apparently found his place in the world in the Philadelphia 76ers. Harris was great last season with the Sixers, helping the team to get to the Eastern Conference semifinals and the team didn’t hesitate to lock him up to a 5-year, $180 million contract this summer. His good displays with Philly got him an 85 overall rating.
6. Draymond Green – 86
Draymond Green has been one of the best defensive players in the NBA for quite some time now. Green has played a big role in the Golden State Warriors’ success and he doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. The veteran forward is set to help his team return to the Finals even when almost nobody believes in them. After having a great campaign last year, he was given an 86 rating in 2K20.
5. Pascal Siakam – 87
Pascal Siakam went from being a good player to become a potential NBA superstar last season, as he played a big part in the Toronto Raptors’ championship run, creating a big 3 with Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry. Now that Kawhi is gone, Siakam has to step up his game and demonstrate he can lead his team to reach important stages, although people don’t think he’ll be able to do so. Siakan earned an 87 overall rating this year after his marvelous season.
4. LaMarcus Aldridge – 87
LaMarcus Aldridge has been one of the best players in his position for several years now, but the veteran PF doesn’t seem to be slowing down in the near future. The San Antonio Spurs star is keen to take his team to compete in a stacked Western Conference, but he’ll have to put a big effort if he wants to do so. Aldridge earns an 87 overall rating from the 2K team, sitting on the 4th spot on this list.
3. Kristaps Porzingis – 87
Albeit Kristaps Porzingis hasn’t played an NBA game in over a year, the Latvian big man is still considered one of the best and most important players in his position. He’s still young and has a lot of things left to do in his career, but after suffering a torn ACL, plenty of fans believe he won’t be the same player he was before the injury. Still, the people in charge of the video game doesn’t seem to bother about it, giving Porzingis an 87 overall rating in the new installment.
2. Blake Griffin – 88
Even after he left the Los Angeles Clippers via trade, Blake Griffin hasn’t decreased his level, and his position on this list is proof of that. Playing for the Detroit Pistons, Griffin has remained as one of the best players in his position. Although he’s not playing in the same stages he used to play, Blake has kept his quality intact, and the 88 overall rating he got in this video game confirms that.
1. Anthony Davis – 94
This one was pretty obvious. Anthony Davis is not only the best power forward in the league, but one of the best players in general. And, if that wasn’t enough, AD is the cover of NBA 2K20. Albeit last season was a complex one for the Brow, he’s known how to remain as the best player in his position, receiving a 94 overall rating. Davis is ready to lead the Lakers to win the NBA title alongside LeBron James in a season that looks very promising for the Purple and Gold.
