Anthony Davis reigns supreme among NBA 2K18 power forwards

NBA: San Antonio Spurs at New Orleans Pelicans Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

It’s official: the New Orleans Pelicans possess two players on their roster who are considered the best at their individual positions, at least according to the world’s most popular basketball video game.

Mere hours ago, NBA 2K revealed the top-10 centers list for their highly anticipated 2018 edition of the game, with DeMarcus Cousins taking the top spot ahead of Karl-Anthony Towns and Marc Gasol.

Well, moments ago, Anthony Davis was announced as the top power forward in NBA 2K18 with a 94 rating, finishing well ahead of his closest competitors including Draymond Green (88), Blake Griffin (87) and Kevin Love (87).

One year ago, Davis was given a somewhat disappointing rating of 90, which put him on the same level as Green, Cousins and James Harden. Going back two years, Davis earned a 92, the third highest rating in NBA 2K16.

Davis’ latest and personal-best ranking of 94 shouldn’t surprise anyone considering the stellar season he wrapped up a little over four months ago. He averaged a career-best 28.0 points and 11.8 rebounds to go along with 2.2 blocks, 1.3 steals and 2.1 assists.

Boogie and The Brow are destined to dominate the competition in the electronic world. Good bet reality follows suit?
