See where Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons rank in this year’s NBA 2K’s ratings

NBC Sports Philadelphia Staff

The initial ratings for NBA 2K were released Monday night and we know where two Sixers stand.

The top-20 players were revealed as well as a couple players just on the outskirts.

Joel Embiid came in at a 91 overall, the highest of any true center and was rated as the tenth-best player in the game. While Embiid's rating seems mostly fair, it is strange that he's only up one point from last season. Embiid took a statistical jump across the board this season.

Ben Simmons came up just short of the top 20 with an 87 overall - players 15 through 20 were all an 88. It's fair to wonder if Donovan Mitchell (88), who finished runner-up to Simmons for Rookie of the Year in 2017-18, should be ahead of Simmons. But, like Embiid's, Simmons' rating seems fair.

Here are the full rankings below:

LeBron James – 97
Kawhi Leonard – 97
Giannis Antetokounmpo – 96
Kevin Durant – 96
James Harden – 96
Stephen Curry – 95
Anthony Davis – 94
Paul George – 93
Damian Lillard – 92
Joel Embiid – 91
Kyrie Irving – 91
Nikola Jokic – 90
Russell Westrbook – 90
Klay Thompson – 89
Karl-Anthony Towns – 89
Jimmy Butler – 88
Kemba Walker – 88
Donovan Mitchell – 88
Rudy Gobert – 88
Blake Griffin – 88
