This year's NBA 2K ratings have yet again drawn the ire of fans and stars of the league.

Every year the process is the same: Upon release of the popular game's ratings for players, the NBA's highest paid stars question the decisions made by producers.

This time there was no player rated a 99 or anywhere close. The only four players that were deemed the game's best players were LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Stephen Curry, who all were given a score of 96.

The decision was met by opposition by James, who surprisingly called for rival and Golden State legend Curry to be a 99. He also called for Durant to be a 99.

Kawhi Leonard, Nikola Jokic, and Joel Embiid were next on 95. While, Luka Doncic, James Harden, and Damian Lillard are at 94.

Trae Young expressed displeasure over his 89 rating after a massive playoff run that saw the Atlanta Hawks star lead his team to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Pelicans superstar Zion Williamson was also given an 89 rating, while Lamelo Ball was made an 84-rated player after his superb rookie season.

Antetokounmpo's Bucks teammates Khris Middleton (88) and Jrue Holiday's (85) ratings were also released.
