NBA 2K20 has a giant roster of basketball players. In an ongoing effort to keeps things as real as possible, the game developers keep an eye on basketball players’ performance. Their overall rating, OVR, is modified based on how players fare on the court. The rating can change several times throughout the lifespan of a game. The new year came with a ratings update. Let’s see who are the players that got the biggest upgrade but we will also be looking at the ones that didn’t have such a good season.
More than 100 players got their OVR modified. Gary Payton II got the biggest increase. He got a +7 boost and now sits at OVR 75. Gary started playing professional basketball in 2016 with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Currently, he is with the Washington Wizards and it looks like he is doing a great job. Garrison Mathews is a young player who debuted in the NBA in October 2019 with the Washington Wizards. After a +5 increase, his OVR is 72.
We have four players that got a +4 boost. Maxi Kleber from Dallas Mavericks has 79 OVR, Shabazz Napier from Minnesota Timberwolves has 78 OVR, Ian Mahinmi from Washington Wizards has 76 OVR, and his teammate Jordan McRae has the same OVR. It looks like this is not a bad season for the Wizards. Seven players got a +3 bump. Mohamed Bamba has 79 OVR, Trey Burke has 78 OVR, Derrick Jones Jr has 77 OVR, Damion Lee has 76 OVR, Georges Niang has 75 OVR, Tim Frazier has 74 OVR, and Anzejs Pasecniks has 73 OVR.
There are 21 players who got a +2 increase. Hassan Whiteside is currently the highest OVR of them. Derrick Favors, Lonzo Ball, Terence Davis, and Tyus Jones are some of the other +2 players. Trae Young, Nikola Vucevic, Chris Paul, Nikola Jokic, and 46 others got +1. Now it’s time to look at the players who didn’t do this good. Taj Gibson from the New York Knicks got a -4 decrease and now has 74 OVR. There are five players with a -3 decrease. Al Horford has 84 OVR, JaMychal Green has 75 OVR, Danuel House has 74 OVR, Yogi Ferrell has 72 OVR, and D.J. Wilson has 70 OVR. Seventeen players including Garrett Temple, Mike Scott, Paul George, Blake Griffin, Draymond Green, and P.J. Tucker got -2. There are 39 players whose OVR suffered a -1 decrease.
