NBA 2K19/2K Games
The NBA regular season doesn't start until Oct. 16th. But with the launch of "NBA 2K19," fans will get a chance to roll out their favorite teams with this season's rosters for the first time in video game form. Part of the fun is seeing how well teams and players stack up against each other in the world's most meticulously-crafted basketball simulation.
A new season means new ratings for more than 350 NBA players, and developer 2K Gaming has slowly been revealing individual player ratings for months in the lead-up to the worldwide release of 2K19 on Sept. 11.
Basketball fans and players alike have always had a strong response to the 2K ratings, which take player tendencies, consistency and overall efficiency into account to come up with a final number. Players are given an overall rating on a 0-100 scale based on 30 different attributes. During the season the ratings are regularly adjusted to match the real-life performance of the players, to keep it as close to real life as possible.
