If we're not including injuries, KD should be #1 or 2. Giannis above KD (or the same rating) is just a joke. Harden being rated the same as KD is also a joke. If we are bringing injuries into the equation, then KD should be out of the top 20 until he comes back, so don't even give me that as an argument.

Steph is better than Harden. He's less efficient all around.

Don't know how Donovan Mitchell is that high. Hes a nice player, but extremely inefficient and raw. He'll probably end up being that good in a few years... man, NBA2k usually does pretty good with this stuff. Not sure what happened this year.

no player should be near 100 because no player is perfect even in their prime. Defense stats should have drop the rating on Lebron or Harden.
