NO.1 NBA 2K21 Ratings
Please keep in mind that the player rankings we listed below were accurate at the beginning of the 2019/2021 NBA season. If any of the following ratings change throughout the season, we will ensure that the following list is updated immediately. Interestingly enough, there's not a single player in the base version of NBA 2K21 with a 97 overall rating to their name. If we had to make an educated guess, we'd put money on LeBron getting to the 97 overall marks at some point during the 2018/19 NBA season, so keep an eye on this guide for whenever player ratings change.
