NBA 2K19 was the video game everyone was anticipating, as it has been 20 years since the game was first introduced to gamers and NBA fans alike. The front cover shows Lebron James on the legend edition, while the standard cover shows Giannis Antetokounmpo. The game has achieved moderate reviews, IGN rated the game a 8.5 out of 10, Game rant said 4.5 out of 5, and Steam said it was a 5 out of 10.

The NBA 2k19 experience is entertaining and gives better control over your player with more options to choose, from customization options like the outfits, haircut, and tattoos . My team has improved vastly with a new 3 on 3 mode called “Triple Threat”. There are more single player challenges that you compete in and they added weekly challenges for head to head competition to give you the ability to gain more rewards.

As of now if you are looking to pick a team in NBA 2k19 with one of the top players whether in play now, My GM, or My League, these are the top 10 current players in NBA 2K19.

  1. Lebron James (98 Overall)
  2. Kevin Durant (97 Overall)
  3. Stephen Curry (96 Overall)
  4. Anthony Davis (95 Overall)
  5. Giannis Antetoukounmpo (95 Overall)
  6. Kawhi Leonard (95 overall)
  7. James Harden (94 Overall)
  8. Damian Lillard (92 Overall)
  9. Russell Westbrook (92 Overall)
  10. Kyrie Irving (92 Overall)

If you are interested in playing the blacktop gamemode where you pick any players from any era to compete in a 5v5, 4v4, 3v3, 2v2, or a 1v1. Here are also the top ten Classic players so you can mix and match your lineup with past and the present.

  1. Michael Jordan (99)
  2. Lebron James (98)
  3. Magic Johnson (98)
  4. Tim Duncan (98)
  5. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (97)
  6. Larry Bird (97)
  7. Shaq (97)
  8. Bill Russell (96)
  9. Hakeem Olajuwon (96)
  10. Kobe Bryant (95)

Overall I am impressed with NBA 2K19, it has the best graphics yet and immersive gameplay. It is a fun game that I highly recommend you try and play to see for yourself.
