3. Stephen Curry, Overall 94

Labelling a two-time MVP and NBA Champion as underrated for receiving a 94 overall in 2K is probably nitpicking on my part, but I think the concern is legitimate. We’ve become so used to Curry’s insanely high level of play that his 2017 campaign seemed like a down year. Remember all the concern about Curry in December? “Steph still doesn’t look right!” “This is Durant’s team now!” Steph emphatically put those concerns to rest as the season wore on.

In the second half of the season, Curry caught fire and carried the Warriors during Durant’s absence. In the playoffs, he continued his incandescent shooting and buried his critics under a firestorm of 3-pointers. Curry had the best playoff run of his career last season on both ends of the floor, competing his butt off and setting an example for his teammates by making tons of hustle plays. His brilliance shouldn’t be overshadowed by Kevin Durant’s even more ridiculous postseason performance.

Curry should rank higher than a 94 overall. He’s one of the three or four best players in the NBA and we shouldn’t forget it. Can we get some love for the two-time MVP? Perhaps a 96 overall, which would put him level with his running mate KD?
