NBA 2K20 player ratings: Where Warriors rank just before game's release

NBA 2K20 player ratings: Where Warriors rank just before game's release

The Warriors have been rated ... at least by NBA 2K20.

The video game released the ratings for every player and Steph Curry leads the Warriors with an overall rating of 95, including a league-leading three-point rating of 99. This is slightly below last year's rating, where he was a 97. Fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson is right behind him, with an overall rating of 89.

Newly-acquired guard D'Angelo Russell's 87 overall rating is slightly above Draymond Green, who boasts an 86.

Rookie forward Eric Paschall not only received his first-ever rating, but also was more than happy to share it with the world:

The ratings combine passing accuracy, durability, free throws, ability to draw fouls, etc. An article in Complex magazine stated developers consider "approximately 50 such attributes to get the complete picture of each player."

Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James and Clippers' Kawhi Leonard lead the league overall rating with a 97. For the rookie class, Pelicans big man Zion Williamon leads the way with an 81 overall rating.

Kevin Durant, Warriors' Steph Curry named to NBA 2K20's All-2010s team

Kevin Durant, Warriors' Steph Curry named to NBA 2K20's All-2010s team

With the end of the decade fewer than six months away, many in the sports world have begun to reflect on the most impactful players and figures during that time. Five straight NBA Finals appearances and three championships later, the Warriors undoubtedly have been one of the most successful North American professional sports franchises since 2010.

2K Sports waded into those waters with the release of All-Decade teams that will be available in the upcoming “NBA 2K20."

The starting five for the “2010s” team includes Warriors star Steph Curry and the recently departed Kevin Durant. LeBron James, James Harden, and Dwight Howard joined the duo to fill out the starting lineup.

Although Durant spent more than half of the decade with the Oklahoma City Thunder, he reached his peak and earned both of his Finals MVP honors during his time with Golden State.

Curry was an easy choice, as a two-time MVP who became the first unanimous winner in 2016. Not to mention he led the league in three-pointers for five straight seasons from 2012-13 through 2016-17.

Although 2K did not reveal the reserves for each All-Decade team, it’s hard to imagine the "2010s" 13-man roster wouldn’t also include Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, who each have impressive resumes of their own from the past 10 years.

D'Angelo Russell recently said the 2019-20 version of the Warriors will be like playing a video game, but Steve Kerr must have felt like he was operating a joystick at times over what has been a historic five-year run.

De'Aaron Fox's NBA 2K20 rating revealed after Kings ask on Twitter

De'Aaron Fox's NBA 2K20 rating revealed after Kings ask on Twitter

Sports video-game ratings are all the buzz these days, as both Madden NFL 20 and NBA 2K20 are set to be released over the next couple of months. 

The Kings were one of the first NBA teams to reach out inquiring about a rating, as they were curious to see how highly stair point guard De'Aaron Fox was rated.

2K asked for 10,000 retweets, then gave Kings fans a first look and rating for Fox when they reached that threshold.

Fox spoke with The Athletic's Jason Jones following the announcement, but didn't seem to sweat it too much. He called his 86 overall rating "cool".

The Kentucky product is much more focused on improving his rating in real life, as he prepares for a stint with the Team USA Basketball Men’s Select Team, where he’ll compete against the Men’s National Team before the FIBA World Cup in September. He'll be joined by Kings teammate Marvin Bagley III on the select team, while fellow King Harrison Barnes is competing with the national team.

“Got a couple calls, but I’m just looking forward to going out there and competing against some of the best guys in the league,” Fox said.

After averaging 17.3 points and 7.3 assists per game a season ago, Fox should be among the top point guards next year in what has become a loaded Western Conference. As player after player withdraws from national team consideration, he'll have a chance to impress USA Basketball brass early next month.
