The details for NBA 2K18 just keep streaming in, and the latest version of the world’s most popular basketball video game will come with all sorts of new features, like Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett broadcasting games, the All-Time squads for all 30 NBA teams, as well as classic teams like the “We Believe” Warriors.
But as is standard operating procedure, their various player ratings and rankings will be the source of no uncertain amount of controversy among fans. Player ratings have been trickling out for the past two months, causing some players to get upset about where they find themselves, and just in the past couple of days, they’ve released the lists of the top-rated power forwards and the top centers in the game.
On Tuesday, they dropped the top ten point guards via Twitter, with Russell Westbrook and Steph Curry tied at the top.
Most folks probably wouldn’t argue that they don’t have the right ten names on this list, although there will be plenty of discussion about the order and ratings. For instance, a lot of fans immediately claimed Russell Westbrook should have a higher rating, while many believe John Wall should be rated higher than Kyrie Irving.
As always, it makes for great online commentary fodder. If you’re jonesing for a longer preview before the official release date in a few weeks, you can take a look at the extended game-play, courtesy of the GameStop Expo.
