LAS VEGAS, NV - JULY 8: Chris Paul
LAS VEGAS, NV - JULY 8: Chris Paul /

The much anticipated NBA 2K ratings of the two stars on the Rockets have been revealed!

The Rockets will have two of the highest rated players in NBA 2K18 next season. With the addition of Chris Paul, Houston now has two players that are over a 90 overall rating.

2K Sports released the top 10 players by rating at each position in the newest game. James Harden is the highest rated shooting guard in the game at a 95 overall. As for Chris Paul, he is the third highest rated point guard behind Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook. However, both CP3 and Harden are in the top 10 overall.

We have seen Chris Paul in a couple of advertisements for the new game, but nothing on Harden. This is likely due to the Beard’s involvement in the rival game, NBA Live 18. We did get a brief screenshot of Harden, though, in a picture 2K released.

Let’s take a look at it:

While CP3 is not listed, his rating of 91 is equal to that of Paul George and the Greek Freak.

Harden’s Rating

The rating for James Harden is an interesting one. It is higher than the MVP winner from last season, Russell Westbrook. While both players’ stats are expected to take a hit with the addition of All-Star teammates, does 2K think Harden will be less affected?

As you can see in the graphic above, James Harden is tied for the third highest rated player in the game. After a near-MVP season, the Beard definitely deserves that 95 rating. He will be fun to play with in the upcoming game, that’s for sure.

Paul’s Rating

Chris Paul, though lower rated than Harden, is still solid at a 91 overall. Is Chris Paul the third best point guard in the league? Likely so, NBA 2K18 got this one right with CP3. He will be a dangerous weapon for Houston on the court and on the sticks.

CP3 and Harden have the highest rated backcourt in NBA 2K18, even higher than Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. Those are high expectations to live up to, will they?
