Before real-life Phoenix Suns basketball returns, we will likely have a new edition of NBA 2K be released in September. What will the players’ ratings be?
NBA 2K20 is a savior for many Phoenix Suns fans these days (myself included) as living in a basketball-starved world at the very time of the year where the game we all love is at its most riveting is a very tough pill to swallow.
ESPN knows this, which is why they are now the “Worldwide Leader in Sports Nostalgia” and have been replaying old games and having the basketball world captivated every Sunday with “The Last Dance”.
While MyPlayer mode on NBA2K can be a delight and playing in the park or a ProAm with other players online (seriously, that is what the vast majority of 2K players are doing these days, video game pickup basketball is more popular than real pickup basketball), I prefer to play in MyGM mode with a legitimate NBA squad like the Phoenix Suns.
So how will the Suns stack up in NBA 2K21? Let’s start with their current ratings in NBA 2K20:
Devin Booker: 86
Deandre Ayton: 85
Kelly Oubre Jr: 81
Ricky Rubio: 80
Aron Barnes: 79
Mikal Bridges: 77
Frank Kaminsky: 77
Dario Saric: 76
Cheick Diallo: 75
Cam Johnson: 73
Because they likely won’t be back in a Suns uniform whenever they return to the court next season, I am not including Frank Kaminsky, Dario Saric, Cheick Diallo, or Aron Baynes in my ratings predictions, but for what it’s worth, Baynes is most likely to return though.
