The King still reigns supreme.

Even though Kawhi Leonard led the Toronto Raptors to their first championship in franchise history and Giannis Antetokounmpo won the league MVP, LeBron James is still the top-rated player in the NBA 2K franchise.

NBA 2K20 revealed the ratings of the top 20 players on a Twitter livestream on Monday, and James checked in just ahead of Leonard, Antetokounmpo and the rest of the field.

1. LeBron James, 97 overall

2. Kawhi Leonard, 97

3. Giannis Antetokounmpo, 96

4. Kevin Durant, 96

5. James Harden, 96

6. Stephen Curry, 95

7. Anthony Davis, 94 

8. Paul George, 93 

9. Damian Lillard, 92 

10. Joel Embiid, 91

11. Kyrie Irving, 91 

12. Nikola Jokic, 90

13. Russell Westbrook, 90

14. Klay Thompson, 89

15. Karl-Anthony Towns, 89

16. Jimmy Butler, 88

17. Kemba Walker, 88

18. Donovan Mitchell, 88

19. Rudy Gobert, 88

20. Blake Griffin, 88

James isn’t the only member of the Los Angeles Lakers who featured prominently in the stream, as new teammate Anthony Davis joined the broadcast and said it was “something you always dream of” when asked how he feels about being the cover athlete for the newest edition of the game.

Davis checked in at No. 7 in the rankings, which was good enough to be considered the best big man. He said he thought his rating would have been higher if the second half of the 2018-19 campaign didn’t unravel for his New Orleans Pelicans following trade rumors that connected him to the Lakers.
