NBA 2K18 player ratings are trickling out; Durant tops Curry

Player ratings for the upcoming NBA 2K18 are trickling out with updates reflecting some of the offseason's biggest moves.

The reigning Golden State Warriors stars are going to have some heated games of HORSE after practice this year as Stephen Curry came in just slightly below teammate Kevin Durant.

John Wall got paid like a superstar this summer, and now he's got an upper echelon player rating to boot.

With so much talent heading west this offseason, Gordon Hayward's decision to join the Boston Celtics could pay big dividends in the weakened Eastern Conference. With an 88 overall rating in 2K18, the game is projecting even more growth from Hayward in 2017-18.

The biggest question: Will teammate Isaiah Thomas have the highest rating on the team?

Speaking of the Eastern Conference, D'Angelo Russell is projected as a borderline All-Star now that he's with the Nets.

Surprisingly, the top two picks in the 2017 draft - Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball - have already matched Russell's 80 rating. Are the untested rooks ready to go toe-to-toe with a player who has two full seasons under his belt?

Dwight Howard's best years are in his rear view, but 2K18 evidently believes he could be a difference-maker with the Charlotte Hornets.

And of course, the rating that hoop heads have awaited with bated breath: Nick Young will carry a 74 rating with the Dubs this year.
