Giannis Antetokounmpo – 98 OVR

Giannis Antetokounmpo has put together a very convincing resume to become a back-to-back NBA MVP this year, and could very well lead the Milwaukee Bucks to their first NBA championship since 1971 (which would be the second in org history).

GREEK FREAK: Giannis could very well pull off back-to-back MVP awards

What makes Giannis such an outstanding player is the lack of holes in his play. Giannis can guard bigs or guards, he can work in the post or off the perimeter, and he can even handle the ball and distribute it as well.

The Greek Freak has shown it this season by ranking 5th in scoring, 2nd in rebounding, and holding career-highs in both.

All of this combined should push Giannis up to 98 OVR in NBA 2K21.

Anthony Davis – 96 OVR

Anthony Davis formed what is likely the highest starpower lineup in the NBA today by moving to the Los Angeles Lakers to join Lebron James this year.

DOMINANCE: Anthony Davis continues to run the paint after joining the Lakers

The move has been successful, with the Lakers easily locking up the Western Conference this season. And for Davis, it’s led to a career high year in ppg.

Davis is one of the few dominant big men in the paint in the league today. We expect it’ll show in his NBA 2K21 ratings – keeping his 96 OVR with fewer rebounds than usual this year offsetting his record scoring.

Pascal Siakam – 90 OVR

Pascal Siakam is a young player who’s only getting better every year as an important presence for the Toronto Raptors.

Siakam might not be at that elite level that some other big men in the NBA have reached, but he’s getting their fast with career numbers in scoring, rebounding, and assists this season.

He still has room to grow, but with his progression, we expect he’ll be 90 OVR in NBA 2K21.

Zion Williamson – 87 OVR

It’s time we talked about the next-gen cover star rookie that’s generated quite a career buzz so far, Zion Williamson.

COVER STAR: Zion pulled off a huge feat earning a 2K cover in his rookie season

The Pelicans finished their bubble appearances on quite a downturn. But for better or for worse, Zion Williamson will be a monster in NBA 2K21.

It’s hard to say Zion won’t fill the shoes fans have given him in time, but despite his lack of minutes so far in his first season, we expect he will pick up a huge 87 OVR rating in NBA 2K21. A rating that doesn’t necessarily reflect his production so far.

John Collins – 87 OVR

John Collins is one of the more underrated big men in the NBA today, and at just 22-years-old, he could be the future of the PF position.

Collins isn’t the traditional paint beast presence most teams have at power forward, but he’s still no slouch down low.

Where Collins really differentiates himself is his range and accuracy shooting the ball as a stretch-four. Collins shoots an awesome 40% from 3, and has put up career high numbers in blocks, points, and rebounds.

With this all in mind, we expect Collins will leap up to 87 OVR in NBA 2K21. This certainly won’t be the highest OVR he’ll reach in the long career ahead of him.
