The NBA 2K18 release date is not too far away, and that brings us closer to getting our hands on the first sports simulation game from one of the biggest franchises to arrive on the Nintendo Switch. Less than a month ahead of the game’s launch, a bunch of new developments have been rocking our world. And at the center of it all are the players of NBA 2K18. Let’s take a look at it all.
New NBA 2K18 Player Ratings
As the ratings continue to pour in, a lot of new faces are making their appearances in what happens to be one of the biggest gaming franchises in the world. As of now, LeBron James happens to be the top rated player in NBA 2K18 overall, with Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard following after with a rating of 96 and 95 respectively. However, keep in mind that the current rankings may not hold true after more players are added to the list.
The newest addition to the NBA 2K18 player chart is De'Aaron Fox. The 19-year-old Sacramento Kings point guard has commenced his first year with an overall rating of 77, which, considering the fact that he is only a beginner is a good number. And unlike most of the players who have been left disgruntled after their ratings reveal (even NBA 2K18 cover star Kyrie Irving), Fox’s reaction has been a very positive one.
Kyrie Irving Transfer Fears Come True
Speaking of Kyrie Irving, this year’s cover star is no longer with Cleveland Cavaliers. In an epic deal struck between the Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics, Irving will now be playing with the latter team. While it has been repeatedly reported that Irving had wanted the transfer due to his issues with LeBron James, the situation is an uncomfortable on for the NBA 2K18 team.
Irving has been featured in the upcoming game in his Cavaliers jersey, and with the game’s release date coming up in less than a month, we doubt the possibility of any changes. How did the game’s creators react to this? Take a look at the tweet below.
