Who are the wealthiest NBA owners?
Tuesday August 15th, 2017

The start of the NBA season is fast approaching, which means the release of NBA 2K18 is even closer.

Although player ratings are updated throughout the season, the initial ratings given to players are always a topic of discussion. Russell Westbrook just won the MVP so does that automatically mean he should be rated higher than James Harden? Should LeBron James have a 99 rating?

Well, 2K has been releasing ratings throughout the summer to help spark those debates.

After taking the internet by storm, people wanted to know just how good "Hoodie Melo" would be if added to 2K.

The answer: 98. To put that into perspective, he would be the best player current player in the game.

Coming off a championship, Kevin Durant and Steph Curry are two of the highest rated players, but where will they match up compared to guys like LeBron, Westbrook, Harden and Kawhi Leonard.

The NBA's young talent is always a hot topic, but are some of these players getting too much hype too early?

Two of the league's most dynamic point guards have the same rating, and one of them was not pleased. Should there be separation between them?

Dwyane Wade was not too pleased about his rating either.

And the top two picks of the draft are the highest rated rookies, but are they the best of the class?
