NBA 2K21: Best Dunkers in MyLEAGUE - Zion Williamson, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis & more


NBA 2K21 has been out for a few days now, and it's safe to say that fans are enjoying 2K Sports latest offering.

Getting to grips with new ratings can be tough, well thankfully, we have you covered!

Here are the best dunkers in the new title!

Standing or Driving?

If you're new to the 2K world - or if you've never really delved too deep - you might not be aware that there isn't just one dunk rating for each player.

Dunking is broke down into two sub categories, standing dunk and driving dunk.

It's the big men - mainly centres - who dominate the standing department, whilst those big, powerful runners are the driving dunk specialists!

Best Standing Dunkers in NBA 2K21

Here is the list of the highest-rated standing dunkers in NBA 2K21!

Blake Griffin - OVR 98

He may have had a torrid year with injuries, but the 6'10" Detroit man is absolutely lethal when he's under the basket!

He's one of the smaller men in this list, but no-one dunks the ball quite like Blake. He was up with the best-rated on NBA 2K20 and, despite those injury woes, he fully warrants his place there in NBA 2K21.

We can't wait to see him back out on the court next season!

DeAndre Jordan - OVR 97

The Brooklyn Nets could be a serious contender next season once Kyrie and KD return from injury, and with DeAndre Jordan throwing them down, they are a scary prospect!

The Nets centre is only an 80 OVR in the new title, but with a 97-rated dunk, he'll be a great man to run in that second five.

Anthony Davis - OVR 95

The third highest-rated standing dunker in NBA 2K21 is none other than NBA 2K20 cover star, Anthony Davis.

AD has formed quite the partnership with LeBron during his short stint in LA so far and given that they are one of the highest rated sides in 2K21, we imagine many of you will be throwing a whole load of dunks down with The Brow this year!

All the best standing dunkers!

As long as Zach LaVine plays basketball, he's always going to be near the top of these ratings!

The Bulls main man is a freak when it comes to throwing down those highlight reel dunks. It's no surprise he's a two-time dunk contest winner!

We don't imagine many people will run with the Bulls this year but, if you do, get LaVine on the drive!

Aaron Gordon - OVR 95
