NBA 2K12 Ratings for LeBron James and Kobe Bryant Spark Debate

Posted September 15th, 2011 at 9:15 am

In NBA 2K11 both Kobe Bryant and LeBron James entered as 97 overall prompting discussion with each having their own factions of supporters but it was mostly harmless since they were tied atop the ratings. With NBA 2K12 though one has gone up while the other has dropped leading to some more contention between those who feel one should be above or at least at the same level as the other.

LeBron James will begin NBA 2K12 as a 98 – the highest rated player in the game – while Kobe Bryant has settled in at 94. Miami also features the 96 rated Dwayne Wade and the 80 rated Chris Bosh (who drops from the 87 he started 2K11 with). Bryant and the Heat, who have no players outside the “big three” above 68, are the only ratings revealed so far.

    I love the black mamba (no homo) but he is getting older now and he is usong his smarts to beat people now he isnt as athletic as he used to be so LeBron IMO has every single edge in the athletic department and im pretty sure speed, strength, quickness and vertical leap add to LeBrons ratings….so of lebron has the advantage in all those characteristics and his rating is only 4 pts higher i think 2k made the ratings perfect

    P.S on 2k “overall” doesnt mean shit a skilled player using kobe will still dominate his opposition by playing smarter…just like kobe would
