CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — It’s good to be the king…. still.
Here in north east Ohio there is little doubt that Lebron James is the greatest basketball player lacing a pair of Nike’s today. Apparently 2K Sports feel the same way:
D-Wade may take exception to his rating, but King James now takes over the top ranking in this year’s edition of the game. That honor had been held by Kevin Durant and his rating of 96.
Even by Lebron’s recent standards this is a high rating. Last season he also held the top spot with only a 96. In 2K16 LBJ lead all rankings with a 94. In fact, his streak as the games top player runs nearly a decade now: 2K15 (97), 2K14 (99), 2K13 (98), 2K12 (98), 2K11 (97)**Three way tie with Kobe and Wade.
Fun Fact: Kobe Bryant was the last person to hold the top spot other than Lebron, beating the King 97-96.
