Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard has received an overall rating of 95 in the basketball video game NBA 2K21, the franchise announced Thursday. Lillard was previously rated 94 overall, but the video game is updating its ratings for its upcoming next-gen console release.

Los Angeles Lakers star and reigning NBA Finals MVP LeBron James is, unsurprisingly, the highest-rated player in 2K21, coming in at an overall of 98. Other superstars received their updated ratings on Thursday as well. Here’s how Lillard compares:

  • LeBron James (98)
  • Anthony Davis (96)
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (97)
  • James Harden (96)
  • Damian Lillard (95)
  • Kevin Durant (95)
  • Luka Doncic (94)
  • Jimmy Butler (93)
  • Jayson Tatum (90)
  • Devin Booker (88)
  • Trae Young (88)

Lillard is notably below James Harden, ahead of Luka Doncic, and tied with Kevin Durant in overall rating. Stephen Curry was also announced later in the day as a 95 overall.

Lillard is one of three cover athletes for the latest iteration of the basketball video game, which is available now on current-gen consoles. NBA 2K21 will release on Nov. 10 for the Xbox Series X/S and Nov. 12 for the PlayStation 5.
