NBA 2K15 Player Ratings Revealed To Date

Posted September 11th, 2014 at 3:30 pm


The overall ratings calculation has changed with NBA 2K15 and only four players will be rated 90+. The floor seems to have risen, and the ceiling lowered somewhat, compressing more players in the middle. As always individual attribute categories and signature skills – and how those translate to performance – is more important than the overall.

2K Sports has started to release the player ratings and in an unorthodox manner having done so by starting with the lowest in the league. Typically companies have avoided spotlighting the bottom of the rosters so as not to embarrass those individuals. In addition a few ratings have come out through Twitter or images captured from the game’s convention appearances.

More ratings will be added to this post as they roll in. LeBron James tops the current players at 98 overall, Kevin Durant follows at 95, and Tim Duncan pulls a 90. Players with more well-rounded skill sets seem to be getting greater credit in the overall ratings this year than in the past as opposed to those that excel in some areas but are weaker in others.
