The release of NBA 2K24 is right around the corner. The popular video game is set to drop on Friday, Sept. 8.

As is tradition, the NBA 2K team slowly rolls out the ratings for the newest edition, causing debates on social media over who’s too high and too low.

Earlier this week, NBA 2K announced that Nikola Jokic will be the highest-rated player in the game at 98 overall. There is a five-way tie for the second-highest rating, as Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid and LeBron James are all rated 96 overall.
