2K is starting to share more and more information about NBA 2K24 online and there’s a lot you need to know about all the new NBA 2K24 ratings ahead of the NBA 2K24 release date. We know this first-look at LeBron James is a fantastic reminder of how far we’ve come when it comes to NBA games, but now it’s time to look forward. In particular, it’s time to look at NBA 2K24’s highest-rated player. This time around, The Joker himself stands on the top spot; the newly-revealed NBA 2K24 Jokić rating is nothing to be laughed at, though.

Yes, that’s right, last year’s highest-rated player remains your best option in NBA 2K24 MyTEAM with an impressive 98 OVR – which is one up from last year. The Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokić is, at launch, the best player in NBA 2K24. We don’t know the specifics of the Serbian’s stats just yet, but we would like to think they’re somewhat similar to last year’s offering – only a little bit better.

If you’re looking for confirmation of this, you can find it below; this was the image shared on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, anyway.

Nikola Jokić might be the best player in the game at launch, but he’s not the only one who’s rating was confirmed. The reigning MVP Joel Embiid is 96 OVR alongside LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Luka Dončić, Jayson Tatum, and Jimmy Butler are all 95 OVR, too. WNBA cover star Sabrina Ionescu is 90-rated, too. So, you’re definitely going to want to keep her in mind when you’re building your team.

While these stats are going to stick around more permanently in NBA 2K24 MyCAREER, you should expect to see quite a few promotional cards and upgrades in MyTeam. So, a 98 OVR Nikola Jokić might be the least of your worries in a couple of months. That being said, he can only climb to 99 OVR as it stands – which isn’t that much more.
