James now shared the honor with two other players.
Ever since "NBA 2K10," LeBron James has been unanimously the highest rated player in the entire game and with good reason. He's consistently the best player in the league thanks to his athleticism and raw skill. Unfortunately for LeBron though, he now has to share his status as the best player in the game with James Harden and Giannis Antetokoumpo. 2K Games are constantly updating their rosters and making changes to the overall ratings of its players.
According to Sporting News, in this latest update, LeBron went from a 97 overall to a 96 overall. Meanwhile, Antetokoumpo managed to reach a 96 rating after starting the year at 94. As for Harden, he's had an interesting season that had him start at 96, fall to 94 in December and then rise back up to 96 thanks to his impressive scoring streak. Interestingly enough, LeBron started this season with a 98 overall but the Lakers struggles have brought him down a couple of points.
There are currently three players behind James, Harden, and Giannis with an overall rating of 95. Those players are Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, and Steph Curry. Curry and Durant were both rated at 96 before the update but were docked a point for the Warriors recent slide.
Do you agree with 2K's ratings or are they completely wrong here?
