The point guard position has certainly changed over the last decade or so, with more and more scoring coming from the position.
We will see some consistency to the rankings this season, but also experience plenty of changes. Some players have moved up in the rankings and several stars have changed teams. A quality point guard can make your team a title contender in an instant, but who is the best on NBA 2K20?
Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors (OVR 95)
Shoes: Under Armour
Curry will stay at the number one spot with same rating for this season. No one will be surprised to see him turn in a monster year and be in the mix for MVP this season now that many familiar Warriors faces are either on other teams or injured for the majority of this year.
Curry, the greatest 3-point shooter of all time, was able to post 27.3 points, 5.2 assists and 5.1 3-pointers made per game last season.
Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers (OVR 92)
Lillard is a favorite active player in the league to many. He is often compared to Curry and his ranking now reflects this.
Last season he averaged 25.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game and will continue to impress during his prime years.
Kyrie Irving, Brooklyn Nets (OVR 91)
Irving is the first star point guard playing for a different team next season.
After seeming like he was committed to Boston, Irving will now be playing in Brooklyn. This season he will be doing a lot of the heavy lifting, but he will be rewarded next year when Kevin Durant returns from injury. Irving averaged 23.8 points, 5 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game for Boston.
Russell Westbrook, Houston Rockets (OVR 90)
Westbrook will now be playing alongside long-time friend and former teammate James Harden in Houston.
They will form one of the most potent backcourt duos and hope to find playoff success. While Westbrook is still a triple-double machine, his inefficiencies have started to become obvious as he inevitably approaches the downhill part of his career. During his age 30 season, Westbrook averaged 22.9 points, 11.1 rebounds and 10.7 assists per game.
Kemba Walker, Boston Celtics (OVR 88)
After playing his entire career in Charlotte, Walker will now head to Boston to replace Kyrie Irving and continue Boston’s winning ways.
Last season, Walker averaged 25.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game as Charlotte’s uncontested leader.
D’Angelo Russell, Golden State Warriors (OVR 87)
Russell has had an interesting start to his young career, to say the least.
After being drafted early by the Lakers, he was deemed a bust and sent off to Brooklyn. Last season he showed his potential with 21.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 7 assists per game.
In order to make room for Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, Brooklyn had to give up Russell in a trade to Golden State.
Now he may be in a unique situation looking to perform in Golden State, while fully aware that he may be traded in the near future once Klay Thompson returns from injury.
Mike Conley, Utah Jazz (OVR 87)
After playing 12 seasons in Memphis, the veteran point guard will now take his talents to Salt Lake City as the Jazz attempt to contend out west.
Last year, Conley averaged 21.1 points, 6.4 assists and 1.3 steals per game. He will be playing for a much better team this season and hopes to make it deep in the playoffs.
