LeBron, Harden, Curry: these guys are considered the best of the best

Who’s the best player in basketball right now? According to NBA 2K19, it’s LeBron James. Yes, hardly a shock. But what about the next 49? That’s more debatable, particularly with rookies Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell establishing themselves among the elite in 2018. Both of those guys are fun to play as in 2K19, but – as you’re about to discover – neither are rated numero uno at their respective positions.

Below are the 10 best NBA 2K19 players at center, guard, and forward, as well as the top-rated free agents, just in case you’re mapping out initial franchise mode plans. Note that players are ranked according to their default in-game position: so while the 76ers will likely use Simmons at PG, for the purpose of this piece he’s still considered a PF.


1. Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves), 91
2=. Joel Embid (Philadelphia 76ers), 90
2=. DeMarcus Cousins (Golden State Warriors), 90
4. Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets), 89
5=. Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz), 87
5=. Andre Drummond (Detroit Pistons), 87
7=. Al Horford (Boston Celtics), 86
7=. DeAndre Jordan (Dallas Mavericks), 86
9=. Marc Gasol (Memphis Grizzlies), 85
9=. Hassan Whiteside (Miami Heat), 85

A stacked position with ten players rated 85 or above, and Clint Capela (Rockets) and Steven Adams (Thunder) narrowly missing out on this chart while still boasting strong 84 overalls apiece. Cousins’ Golden State Warriors are 2K19’s most highly-rated team on the back of their third NBA championship in four years, but he can’t quite edge out 2015-16 rookie of the year Towns for the ‘best center’ honour.

Point Guard

1. Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors), 95
2=. Kyrie Irving (Boston Celtics), 93
2=. Russell Westbrook (Oklahoma City Thunder), 93
4=. Chris Paul (Houston Rockets), 90
4=. Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers), 90
6. John Wall (Washington Wizards), 89
7. Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets), 86
8. Jrue Holiday (New Orleans Pelicans), 85
9. Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors), 85
10. Goran Dragic (Miami Heat), 84

Curry led the Warriors to their first NBA championship for three decades in 2014-15, then proved it was no fluke by claiming two more titles in three years – and scarily, he insists he’s only just reached his peak at the age of 30. 2K19 dev Visual Concepts evidently agrees. Elsewhere, Irving makes the Celtics a tantalising prospect in MyLeague (2K19’s franchise mode): aged 26, you’ll get another decade out of him, and even longer out of 20-year-old Jayson Tatum (SF, 87) and 21-year old Jaylen Brown (SG, 84).

Shooting Guard

1. James Harden (Houston Rockets), 96
2=. DeMar Derozan (San Antonio Spurs), 89
2=. Jimmy Butler (Minnesota Timberwolves), 89
2=. Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors), 89
5. Victor Oladipo (Indiana Pacers), 88
6=. Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz), 87
6=. Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns), 87
6=. CJ McCollum (Trail Blazers), 87
6=. Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards), 87
10=. Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks), 84
10=. Jaylen Brown (Boston Celtics), 84

It’s always exciting to start MyLeague as a team who’ve just picked up a new star player, so expect many to go with San Antonio as their roster of choice this year. 29-year-old Derozan was acquired from the Raptors with three years still to run on his current deal, and steps into a line-up that also includes LaMarcus Aldridge (PF, 88) and DeJounte Murray (PG, 78). Only 2018 MVP Harden stands ahead of him in the pantheon of current shooting guards.

Small Forward

1. LeBron James (LA Lakers), 98
2. Kevin Durant (Golden State Warriors), 97
3=. Kawhi Leonard (Toronto Raptors), 94
3=. Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks), 94
5. Paul George (Oklahoma City Thunder), 89
6. Gordon Hayward (Boston Celtics), 88
7. Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics), 87
8. Harrison Barnes (Dallas Mavericks), 82
9=. Andrew Wiggins (Minnesota Timberwolves), 81
9=. Otto Porter (Washington Wizards), 81

No surprise to see who tops the list – LeBron is rated 18 overall points better than his closest team-mate, fellow small forward Brandon Ingram (82). Kyle Kuzma (PF, 80) is the only other Lakers player to pass the 80 mark. There’s a tough decision ahead if you fancy running that aforementioned Celtics franchise, with both veteran Gordon Hayward and hot prospect Jayson Tatum rated among the top seven. Just missing out is 2014 draft pick TJ Warren (Phoenix Suns), with an overall of 80.

Power Forward

1. Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans), 94
2=. Kristaps Porzingis (New York Knicks), 88
2=. LaMarcus Aldridge (San Antonio Spurs), 88
4=. Ben Simmons (Philadephia 76ers), 87
4=. Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors), 87
6=. Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers), 86
6=. Blake Griffin (Detroit Pistons), 86
8=. Aaron Gordon (Orlando Magic), 82
8=. Paul Millsap (Denver Nuggets), 82
8=. Tobias Harris (LA Clippers), 82
8=. Lauri Markkanen (Chicago Bulls), 82

Much like center, power forward is a deep position across the NBA: three talented pros fall short of the above list despite being rated over 80: Jabari Parker (Bulls), Julius Randle (Pelicans), and Kyle Kuzma (Lakers). Even so there’s daylight between Davis and contemporaries Porzingis and Aldridge — hardly surprising given his status as a five-time NBA All-Star and 2012 Olympic Gold Medallist.

Free Agents

1. Dwayne Wade (Shooting Guard), 79
2=. Manu Ginobili (Shooting Guard), 77
2=. Jamal Crawford (Shooting Guard), 77
4=. Trevor Booker (Power Forward), 76
4=. Al Jefferson (Center), 76
4=. Mirza Teletovic (Power Forward), 76
7=. Joe Johnson (Small Forward), 75
7=. David West (Power Forward), 75
7=. Rodney Hood (Shooting Guard), 75
7=. Alan Williams (Power Forward), 75
7=. Joffrey Lauvergne (Center), 75
7=. Tony Allen (Shooting Guard), 75
7=. Willie Reed (Center), 75

Many expected Dwayne Wade to retire following his farewell season in Miami, but he rubbished those suggestions with a single two-word tweet in mid-August: “fake news”. Start a MyLeague and you can add him to your roster with a still-serviceable overall rating of 79. Jefferson and Lauvergne add depth at center, though your options are significantly more limited if you’re in the market for a back-up small forward: wily veteran Joe Johnson, most recently of Houston, is the only freebie ranked higher than 75.

Here’s all the NBA 2K19 tips and tricks you need, including offense and defense controls, NBA 2K19 player ratings, and how to score points easily.

Guide by Hirun Cryer, Guides Writer

Updated on 6 September 2019

Player ratings are always a hot topic of discussion in any sports game, and this is no different for NBA 2K19. In our complete NBA 2K19 play ratings guide, we’ll be putting together a full list of the best NBA 2K19 players in the entire game, so you know who stands head and shoulders above the rest.

If you instead need guides to any additional areas of the latest iteration of NBA 2K, you’ll want to head over to our complete NBA 2K19 guides hub. It’s on this page that you’ll find all the various beginner’s tips and tricks, as well as a complete walkthrough of all the changes that 2K has made to the shooting and dribbling mechanics for this year’s release.

NBA 2K19 Ratings

Keep in mind that the player ratings we’ve listed out below were all accurate at the beginning of the 2018/19 NBA season. Should any of the ratings below change over the course of the season, we’ll be sure to update the list below, straight away.

  • LeBron James (LA Lakers) — 98 Overall.
  • Kevin Durant (Golden State Warriors) — 97 Overall.
  • James Harden (Houston Rockets) — 96 Overall.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves) — 91 Overall.

Interestingly enough, there’s not a single player in the base version of NBA 2K19 with a 99 overall rating to their name. If we had to make an educated guess, we’d put money on LeBron getting to the 99 overall mark at some point during the 2018/19 NBA season, so keep an eye on this guide for whenever player ratings change.

With the release of NBA 2K19, who are the best players with the highest ratings?


With every new release of NBA 2K there’s always one thing everyone wants to know. Who are the best players in the game?

10. Karl-Anthony Towns (OVR 91)

Age: 22

Position: C

Height: 7’0”

Team: Minnesota Timberwolves

Traits: Rebounding Scoring Machine

Best stats: Stamina, Layups, Mid-Range

“KAT” is arguably the most well-rounded center in the league today. As a player that immediately impacted the game, his career arc trajectory is still pointing upwards. Coming off last season where he averaged 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game, Towns is a good cornerstone player for any 2K players looking to build a younger franchise. With Towns coming in just slightly above DeMarcus Cousins and Joel Embiid, there will likely be some upset fans here. Either way, Towns’ rating is about right where I’d like it to be.

9. Kyrie Irving (OVR 93)

Age: 26

Position: PG

Height: 6’3”

Team: Boston Celtics

Traits: Offensive Superstar

Best stats: Inside Scoring, Mid-Range Scoring, 3PT Scoring

After plenty of drama surrounded Irving’s 2017 offseason, Kyrie found himself working with a new squad shortly before last season began. As one of the top point guards in the league, Irving had no problem putting up stats in Boston to the tune of 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game. However, Kyrie found his season cut short due to injury near the end of the regular season and was unable to compete in the playoffs. After a summer of rehab work, Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward will look to propel the likely leader of the Eastern Conference to a NBA Finals appearance.

8. Russell Westbrook (OVR 93)

Age: 29

Position: PG

Height: 6’3”

Team: Oklahoma City Thunder

Traits: All-Around Superstar

Best stats: Ball Handling, Speed, Acceleration

This is by no means a knock on the other guys on this list, but I feel like 2K Sport may have disrespected Westbrook with this rating. After averaging 25.4 points, 10.3 assists, 10.1 rebounds last season, Russ twice pulled off a feat that had only been achieved by one other player in the history of the NBA – averaging a triple-double over the course of a season. We’re talking about a player that is just one year removed from a MVP crown here. Westbrook has done more than enough to earn everyone’s respect, but apparently he’s still not good enough to be rated higher than a guy that practically sat out all of last season.

7. Kawhi Leonard (OVR 94)

Age: 27

Position: SF

Height: 6’7”

Team: Toronto Raptors

Traits: All-Around Superstar

Best stats: Steals, Lateral Quickness, Layups

In case you couldn’t tell by my blurb on Russell Westbrook, I don’t have very much respect for Kawhi Leonard following last season’s disaster. Despite sitting out a majority of last season with “injuries”, Leonard was still able to post averages of 16.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists. While these numbers are not terrible, they are simply laughable alongside Westbrook’s averages. That being said, Leonard has done enough in his career to earn a spot amongst the league’s elite in terms of ratings. After an offseason full of drama, Leonard will not be playing north of the border as he looks to carry the Toronto Raptors through the much weaker Eastern Conference.

6. Giannis Antetokounmpo (OVR 94)

Age: 23

Position: SF

Height: 6’11”

Team: Milwaukee Bucks

Traits: All-Around Superstar

Best stats: Stamina, Layups, Lateral Quickness

Giannis is one of the most entertaining players in the league these days. His nickname of “Greek Freak” is so fitting as his size and athleticism just do not seem to make sense. After averaging 26.9 points, 10.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists last season and looking like a top-tier talent for many years to come, it’s no surprise that 2K Sports would select him as the game’s cover athlete. The jack-of-all-trades is a solid player to build around if you’re looking to build your franchise team over many seasons.

5. Anthony Davis (OVR 94)

Age: 25

Position: PF

Height: 6’11”

Team: New Orleans Pelicans

Traits: 2-Way Superstar

Best stats: Layups, Blocks, Stamina

“The Brow” is easily the top talent in the league at the power forward position. A player that was constantly plagued with injuries in the early part of his career has now developed in to a star capable of a carrying his team to victory. After another successful season with averages of 28.1 points, 11.1 boards, 2.3 assists, Davis will be forced to work extra hard for wins due to losing his frontcourt mate, DeMarcus Cousins, to the Warriors in free agency.

4. Stephen Curry (OVR 95)

Age: 30

Position: PG

Height: 6’3”

Team: Golden State Warriors

Traits: All-Around Superstar

Best stats: Stamina, Mid Range, 3 Pointers

Even though Curry’s stats have taken a slight step back from his MVP seasons, he’s is still the ever-dominant deep threat that strikes fear in the hearts of defenders any time he gets the ball past half court. Curry remains the top point guard option in 2K and rightfully so after posting averages of 26.4 points, 6.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds. The only weakness to Curry’s game is his on-ball defense, but that’s easily covered up with the teammates that surround him on the Golden State roster.

3. James Harden (OVR 96)

Age: 29

Position: SG

Height: 6’5”

Team: Houston Rockets

Traits: Offensive Superstar

Best stats: Stamina, Layups, Ball Handling

Coming off averages of 30.4 points, 8.8 assists, 5.4 rebounds, the regular season MVP will come in to this year’s NBA 2K game as the number 3 overall player. After adding Chris Paul to the roster, the Rockets looked like a team capable of taking down the league titan that is the Golden State Warriors. Staying true to his game, the “Beard” still refuses to make any effort on defense and relies on his ability to run up the score with elite scoring and playmaking skills. Harden is the ultimate offensive weapon at the shooting guard position and tops the position by a wide margin.

2. Kevin Durant (OVR 97)

Age: 29

Position: SF

Height: 6’9”

Team: Golden State Warriors

Traits: Two-Way Superstar

Best stats: Layups, Mid Range, 3 Pointer

Durant is the only player capable of rivaling LeBron James in today’s NBA. Coming with a rating just one point under James seems fair as the players are very comparable when it comes to the overall impact they have in a game. Kevin Durant averaged 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.8 blocks per game and dominated the playoffs en route to another Warriors title. Look for Durant to remain competitive and post gaudy numbers all season long.

1. LeBron James (OVR 98)

Age: 33

Position: SF

Height: 6’8”

Team: Los Angeles Lakers

Traits: All Around Superstar

Best stats: Stamina, Layups, Passing

After carrying arguably the worst team of James’ career to a NBA Finals, it should come as no surprise when 2K Sports gave him the respect he deserves. Averages of 27.5 points, 9.1 assists, 8.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game were not enough to propel the Cavaliers to a title finish. Some think James is getting tired of carrying the load, while others think his move to the Lakers was more of a business move. Either way, James will now be competing in the very deep Western Conference and looking to win with a relatively weak roster. Expect plenty of media drama all season long as the King takes his throne to Hollywood.
