James Harden sits atop the top 10 shooting guards list on NBA 2K18, the last of five released by 2K Sports on Wednesday. The Beard netted a rating of 95, closely followed by Jimmy Butler and Klay Thompson, who tied for a 90 rating in the new iteration.
Harden was once again an MVP runner-up after tallying a whopping 22 triple-doubles in the season and leading the league in assists with 11.2 after still managing a career-high in scoring with 29.2 points per game, second only to MVP winner Russell Westbrook.

Butler and Thompson are both two-way studs at their position, considered two of the best defenders due to their size, strength, and lateral quickness — allowing them to keep in front of their matchup and come up with loose balls.
DeMar DeRozan, who will be on the cover of the Canadian version of the game, scored a rating of 89, while an up-and-coming Bradley Beal was rewarded with an 87 rating after a healthy all-around season.
C.J. McCollum (86), Devin Booker (85), Avery Bradley (83), Dwyane Wade (82), and Khris Middleton (81) round out the list, all between the low and mid-80s rating-wise.
