We are looking forward to hearing more about the players in NBA 2k21. In the meantime, this is who we believe should get a higher rating this season.
Zion Williamson (Stats: 23.6 PPG, 6.8 RPG, 2.2 APG)
We all know that Zion is one of the cover athletes who are featured in this edition and that he is one of the highest-ranked players at the moment. And given his looks, he really is the ultimate cheat code.
Zion Williamson is a great talent, and we all know it. He has strength, raw power, and the way he plays the ball makes him really exciting to watch. We’re hoping he’d remain the same next year.
Jimmy Butler (Stats: 20.2 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 6.1 APG)
Given the fact that Jimmy Butler changed the Miami Heat with his leadership, he deserves an upgrade on his 2k21 rating. He believes he keeps blossoming, and he’s getting better and better. His leadership mixed perfectly with the team of the Miami Heat, and he showed his true potential.
Kyrie Irving (Stats: 27.4 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 6.4 APG)
Kyrie Irving was on a mission at the beginning of the season. He was playing for his hometown team, but then an unfortunate event happened: he got injured. He is even more motivated now. He is trying to lead a team to Championship contention. He is going to have Kevin Durant by his side, which will make things easier for him.
Nikola Jokic (Stats: 20.2 PPG, 10.2 RPG, 6.9 APG)
Nikola Jokic has worked a lot during the quarantine, and he is in better shape now. We hope that this will also be seen in the playoffs and that he will be able to endure the physical demands of a game season.
He is one of the best men in NBA history. He can be a threat, and he managed to turn the Nuggets into perennial contenders. But what about his defensive tactics? He might have to work a bit on those.
Russell Westbrook (Stats: 27.5 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 7.0 APG)
He had to deal with a lot of criticism when he entered the season. People did not believe that he was able to get along with James Harden, and everyone thought that the Houston Rockets were simply a ticking time bomb. But that did not happen.
He is still underappreciated but is still one of the talented people in the field. He embraced his new role with the Rockets, and he should get an upgraded rating for the 2k21 version.
Joel Embiid (Stats: 23.4 PPG, 11.8 RPG, 3.1 APG)
This one is one of the most talented players we’ve ever seen. He had no interactions with basketball until he was a teenager, and his game gets better and better every day. Some say he’s terrified of the league.
There is one thing that might be a problem for him. Rumor has it, he has poor food habits. But given the fact he’s one of the best men out there, his rating might increase soon.
