NBA 2K22 has reached the point in its promotional cycle when social media mangers squeeze every last ounce of interest out of player ratings. Frankly, we’re not all that fussed about these arbitrary scores – we know they affect gameplay, obviously – but fans go gaga over their favourites being ranked, and it’s an opportunity to get all of the major teams involved as well.
The first batch of ratings include Luka Dončić (94), Kevin Durant (96), Steph Curry (96), and Nikola Jokić (95). Newly minted NBA champs Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and Jrue Holiday take a 96, 88, and 85 respectively, with more to be revealed throughout the day. At the end of it all, 2K Sports will release lists of the top players, 3pt shooters, rookies, dunkers, and more.
The WNBA is also getting in on the action, with Breanna Stewart (95), A’ja Wilson (94), Jonquel Jones (94), Candace Parker (93), and Brittney Griner (93) also getting ranked. And alongside the ratings come some new screenshots, which we’ve embedded in this article. No other sports games do face scans quite like NBA 2K, does they?
Looks nice. But I'm sure will still have the same slow, sluggish gameplay... I'm good thx.
Only reason I keep an eye on these games is for the Angry Joe rants where he points out that sod all has changed bar the graphics lol he's not wrong in fairness
Nice to see the main man Nugget Jokić getting the respect he deserves.
Middleton should be a 90
This looks amazing, but I’d rather play NBA Jam.
@Logonogo i agree. Unsung hero.
@Excess i agree. As fun as the game is, for me its too technical now. Just let me run, pass, and shoot. I know most love it. I'm just probably too old.
Now we need a higher age rating for the gambling.
Giannis won a ring and dropped a 50 piece after his knee turned into an elbow and they still gave him the same score he had last year.
And there's no way Jrue shoulda dropped a point or Middleton should be sub-90 smh
