Upcoming basketball title, NBA 2K15 from 2K Sports has changed the way players in the game are rated.

NBA 2K15 has only four players who are rated 90 and above. Kevin Durant, the cover athlete of this title was among the four players who are rated 90 and above. He is rated 95 overall. But a recent leaked image also revealed that Tim Duncan too has been rated at 90 overall in this group, reported Attack of the Fanboy.

The report also revealed that Lebron James has a higher rating than Durant. James is the highest ranked in the game with a 98 overall. It was pointed out that this was a two point drop for James from his 100 overall last year. The higher rating for James follows the common perception of him being the best player in the league.
