The latest installment of the NBA 2K franchise is now available in NBA 2K22, and with it, the annual tradition of looking at updated player ratings.

For the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James and Marc Gasol were two players who had their ratings revealed before the initial release date.

James’ rating is tied for the top spot in the league along with players like Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets, Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Gasol is one of the highest-rated players from Spain along with players like Ricky Rubio of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Juancho Hernangomez of the Boston Celtics.

So how did the rest of the roster fare? Let’s take a look:
