‘NBA 2K’ Dropped A Ton Of New Overall And Skill Ratings For All-Star 2021

The NBA All-Star weekend is going to look a little bit different this year due to the league’s decision to put on a show amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The primary difference comes in the lack of a Saturday night — the NBA, instead of putting on a two-night card, is moving all three of its normal Saturday events to Sunday, with the Skills Challenge and Three-Point Contest occurring before the game and the Dunk Contest happening at halftime.

But still, the game itself isn’t going to be much different. A pair of squads selected by the top of vote getters in each conference – LeBron James and Kevin Durant, the latter of whom will not play due to an injury – will go head-to-head in a game that, like last year, incorporates the Elam Ending into the festivities. And to celebrate the fact that a number of players earned the All-Star distinction this year, the folks over NBA 2K have decided to offer up some updated rankings for those who will participate in the game.

Team LeBron James:

​LeBron James: 97 OVR
​Giannis Antetokounmpo: 96 OVR
Steph Curry: 96 OVR
​​Nikola Jokic: 95 OVR
​​Luka Doncic: 93 OVR

​​Damian Lillard: 94 OVR
​​Paul George: 90 OVR
​​Jaylen Brown: 89 OVR
​​Ben Simmons: 88 OVR
​​Chris Paul: 88 OVR
​Rudy Gobert: 88 OVR
​Domantas Sabonis: 87 OVR

Team Kevin Durant:

​​Kawhi Leonard: 96 OVR
​​Joel Embiid: 95 OVR
​Kyrie​ Irving: 91 OVR

​​James Harden: 95 OVR
​​Zion Williamson: 89 OVR
​​Devin Booker: 88 OVR
​Zach LaVine: 88 OVR
​Nikola Vucevic: 88 OVR
Donovan Mitchell: 88 OVR
​Julius Randle: 87 OVR

Additionally, overall ratings have been updated for those participating in the Skills Challenge — the only person who is participating in this who is not in the game is Robert Covington, who is now a 77 overall — while the individual skill ratings on display during the Three-Point Contest and Dunk Contest are updated, too.

Three-Point Contest

Steph Curry: 98 three-point rating
​Zach LaVine: 88 three-point rating

​Jayson Tatum: 85 three-point rating
​Donovan Mitchell: 85 three-point rating

To try and fill the hoops void on Saturday, 2K will host its third annual MyTEAM Unlimited $250,000 championship game on its Twitch account. As for All-Star, the pregame festivities for Sunday will begin at 6:30 PM Eastern time, with the game slated to begin around 8 PM. The entirety of the programming will air on TNT.
