The only thing more highly debated than who is the greatest player ever is each year’s set of video game player ratings. 

NBA 2K16 graced the masses with their official top 10 list, and while there are some surprises, this is a pretty solid group.

LeBron James tops the ranks with a 94 overall, followed by Stephen Curry (93), Anthony Davis (92), and James Harden (92), the game’s trio of cover athletes. Rounding out the top five is Kevin Durant, who received a 91 after an injury-filled season.

No. 6 is Chris Paul, who receives a 90, followed by 89 overall Russell Westbrook. This could stir some controversy, mind you, given that Westbrook is the cover athlete for the other basketball game, EA’s NBA Live.

The final three spots go to Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge, all rated 88’s, but in that order, apparently.
