NBA 2K19 is now less than two weeks away from release and the majority of ratings have been leaked. Some star players had screenshots of their ratings earlier this month but a video was recently leaked with every rating for each NBA teams starting five.
With these ratings leaked, we can now see who the top ten point guards are in NBA 2K19.
10. Goran Dragic - 84
Goran Dragic was given an 84 overall rating this year, with an average of 17.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists last season. He led the Heat to 44 wins, finishing 6th in the Eastern Conference. The first All-Star appearance for Dragic’s 12th season in his career and a great season to say the least.
9. Kyle Lowry - 85
Kyle Lowry was given an 85 overall rating this year, averaging 16.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.9 assists for The Raptors. Lowry is now 32 years old and his performance may be declining now. Although he does have the potential to be a 20+ point player and with the arrival of Kawhi Leonard, it could improve his performance.
8. Kemba Walker - 86
Kemba Walker was somehow given an 86 overall rating, with an average of 22.1 points, 5.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds. One the best seasons of his career and an All-Star for the second season in a row, I’m sure his rating will go up through the season.
7. Ben Simmons - 87
Ben Simmons was given an 87 overall rating this year, deserving from a spectacular first season. The Rookie of the Year averaged 15.8 points, 8.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds and helped break The 76ers five-year playoff drought. A potential Hall of Famer on the rise to become a superstar in the NBA.
6. John Wall - 90
John Wall is given a 90 overall rating this year, averaging 19.4 points, 9.6 assists, and 3.7 rebounds last season. Wall wasn’t his usual best this year, only playing in 41 games for the season. In the 2016-17 season, he averaged 23.1 points and 10.7 assists. If healthy this season, we can see similar double-double stats or if not better with the arrival of Dwight Howard.
T3. Damian Lillard - 90
Damian Lillard is given a 90 overall rating this year, with his first appearance in the All-NBA 1st Team. Last season, he averaged 26.9 points, 6.6 assists and 4.5 rebounds for the Trailblazers. He led all point guards in scoring and finished 3rd in the western conference. Definitely the best season of his career.
T3. Chris Paul - 90
CP3 was given a 90 overall rating and averaged 18.6 points, 7.9 assists and 5.4 rebounds per game last season. Paul and Harden led the Rockets to a whopping 65 wins in the West, almost knocking out Golden State in the playoffs. Unfortunately, Paul was injured in the last games they lost, pretty much the difference maker between winning the series.
T2. Kyrie Irving - 93
Uncle Drew is given a 93 overall rating this year, making him the only 90 for Boston. He averaged 24.4 points and 5.1 assists per game. Irving has the best handles we have seen in NBA history and an excellent finisher around the rim. One of the best isolation players in today's game.
T2. Russell Westbrook - 93
The 2016-17 MVP is given a 93 overall rating this year, for another triple-double season. He averaged 25.4 points, 10.3 assists, 10.1 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game. Westbrook is known for his insane athleticism, dunking over them and leaving his defender in the dust. Let's see if he can average a triple-double for the 3rd season in a row.
1. Stephen Curry - 95
The best 3 point shooter in NBA history is rated 95 overall in 2k19, making him the highest rated point guard in the league. Curry averaged 26.4 points, 6.1 assists and 1.6 steals per game with almost another 50-40-90 season. Curry is the biggest threat beyond the arch we have ever seen, it’s almost unreal.
2K19 will be released on the 11th of September (7th if you pre-order) and The Prelude is now available to download for a preview of 2K19’s new MyCareer mode.
