NBA2k has released Washington Wizards point guard John Wall’s NBA2k18 overall rating.

Wall gets an impressive 90. Of course, players especially those of Wall’s caliber would love a 99 overall. However, his rating falls in a comparable line. The 90 rating matches cover boy Kyrie Irving. The two are currently only trailing two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry, who landed a 94 from the game’s creators, among point guards. The rating for 2016-17 league MVP, Russell Westbrook, has yet to be released.
Wall is coming off his best season of his pro career, averaging career highs with 23.1 points, 10.7 assists, 2.0 steals. He finished the regular season second in the league in both assists and steals. He earned his first All-NBA nod (third team).
It’s refreshing to see him being recognized on the elite level. Now it’s time for him to build on the recognition, and possibly his rating will improve by season end.
