NBA 2K21 has announced adjustments to the rankings of some players in the new update. It’s not uncommon for 2K games to make small changes throughout the season. The NBA looks a little different this year due to coronavirus protocols, but the action has been great despite the lack of fans. Some of the most interesting changes announced in this rankings update involve the demolition of the league’s top players. Vice President LeBron James and Vice President Giannis Antetokounmpo each lost one point in the standings. James Harden, the new Brooklyn goalie, also lost by a total of 1 point. James’ defensive back and prospect for defensive player of the year Anthony Davis also lost their spots. But the big men are spurred on by the passing game of Nikola Jokic and the dominance of Joel Embiid.

Check out the rankings changes below and read an excerpt from our NBA 2K21 magazine:

All the discussion around 2K21 at launch focused on this new shooting system, which requires players to aim with the same stick used to shoot and dribble. It’s a furious system that will force players who have played football for a long time to learn the basics of the game from scratch. For those who play in the 2K leagues, it may be an interesting change, but for casual players it’s just disappointing, Charlie Ridgely wrote. Fortunately, the 2K team listened to the game’s buyers and released a fix on the shooting system over the weekend, allowing players to choose between new and old orders. No one wants to go back on a feature film they worked hard on, but the decision to correct the shooting absolutely saves NBA 2K21.
