Some players dominate in several items. Stephen Curry, Nikola Jokic and LeBron James, especially. These are three of the best players in the world right now and just like in reality, they are great in video games. You could say some ratings are odd, too, but these ratings are very spot-on.

The best player on the game, of course, is LeBron, who remains the best player in the world with the Los Angeles Lakers. He's followed by Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Curry, all with a 96 overall.
