NBA 2K22 Player Ratings

Kevin Durant (96 OVR)

KD showed no lingering effects from the Achilles tear he suffered in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals. The seven-foot monster came back as dangerous as ever in his new home in BK. He’s rewarded with one of the top overalls in NBA 2K22.

Steph Curry (96 OVR)

One of the things that many fans felt robbed of when Kevin Durant went to The Bay was the opportunity to watch Chef Curry cook and give us those otherworldly scoring displays on a nightly basis. This past season was a glimpse of exactly what we’d been missing. The greatest shooter of all-time sports a 96 overall in the upcoming 2K.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (96 OVR), Chris Middleton (88 OVR), and Jrue Holiday (85 OVR)

One of the best stories to come out of basketball in a long time was watching Giannis Antetokounmpo get it out of the mud and win his first ring. The Bucks big three of Giannis, Middleton, and Holiday helped bring Cream City its first championship in half a century.

Nikola Jokic (95 OVR)

The reigning NBA MVP carries a 95 overall into NBA 2K22. The Joker was a consistent force for the entirety of the regular season. He helped carry the Nuggets into the playoffs despite losing star guard Jamal Murray.

Luka Doncic (94 OVR)

NBA 2K22 cover star Luka Doncic is rated 94 overall. The 22-year-old phenom has been nothing short of incredible since entering the league and is well on his way to becoming one of the best players to ever touch the NBA hardwood.

Candace Parker (93 OVR)

New uniform, same game. Despite relocating to the Chicago Sky in the later half of her career, the 35-year-old Parker remains among the top players in the WNBA.
