Warriors dominate NBA LIVE 19 player ratings

New, comments

Not surprisingly, the best team in the world has some good players on it.

NBA: Finals-Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

This is an exciting time of year for fans who love both the NBA and video games. With the release of EA Sports’ NBA LIVE 19 less than a month away, one of the offseason’s most fun traditions is officially underway: The release of the player ratings.

Player ratings for NBA LIVE are always a fun time for fans and players to argue over just how good certain players are. They let you know how good a player will be in the video game, but more importantly, they spark discussion over the current landscape of the league.

EA Sports hasn’t released all of the player ratings yet, but they have released the top five players at each position. Not surprisingly, the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors dominate the player ratings. The Dubs have a top-five player at each position, including top-two at four of the positions.

Kevin Durant earned a score of 95, which trails only LeBron James among all NBA players.

Right behind him is Stephen Curry, whose score of 94 is tied with a few players for third-highest in the league.

Here are the top fives at each position (with their player rating in parenthesis), because I know you all will have some words about some of the ratings. Have at it in the comment section!
