When you throw in Damian Lillard and Nikola Jokic, Team LeBron has seven players ranked in the 90s and is probably the best team you can put together in this years version of NBA2K. Russell Westbrook and Donovan Mitchell both have driving dunk ratings in the 90s while Chris Paul and Devin Booker have three point ratings in the 80s.

Team Giannis were ranked 90 overall with a 88 inside scoring rating and a 86 outside scoring rating. Team Giannis is led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has an overall rating of 97 and a driving dunk of 95, making him possibly the most dominant player in this game. Team Giannis has two other players ranked in the 90s in Joel Embiid and Trae Young, who form a deadly inside - outside game. Team Giannis has depth with four players ranked in the high 80s in Pascal Siakam, Ben Simmons, Jayson Tatum and Jimmy Butler, and they bring some three point shooting to the table. Kemba Walker and Khris Middleton are solid outside shooters in this game and Bam Adebayo is a really underrated post presence. Team Giannis isn’t as stacked as Team LeBron, but they play defense and are a force in the paint.

Team Giannis has possibly the best player in this game and you'd know that if you ever played this game with the Bucks. Antetokounmpo is unstoppable at both ends of the floor. However, Team LeBron is absolutely loaded from top to bottom with seven players ranked in the 90s, and the outside shooting along with guys who can create their own shots is simply unfair.

Team LeBron should roll in this contest, as the talent gap is quite wide.
