Warriors get max 99 team rating in NBA 2K19
Shocking: The Golden State Warriors are the recipients of a 99 rating in NBA 2K19. That’s the maximum rating any team can get in the game and it’s for good reason. When fully healthy, the Warriors will start five All-Stars and have an NBA Finals MVP coming off the bench.

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are the two centerpieces of the Warriors. Both are former MVPs and both torture opposing defenses in a variety of ways. Now add in one of the best shooters in the game — Klay Thompson — and a playmaking, defensively-minded big man — Draymond Green. Don’t forget they have the crafty veteran, Andre Iguodala coming off the bench. That team won two straight titles.
Insert DeMarcus Cousins into the equation and it’s obvious why the Warriors are a max rating in NBA 2K19. They are the type of team that you create in a video game when you turn off trade blockers.
One of the questions that surrounds the Warriors is how well their depth will hold up. Iguodala and Shaun Livingston are in the twilights of their careers. Jonas Jerebko brings some veteran experience, but Jordan Bell, Kevon Looney, and Quinn Cook are still largely unproven.
Obviously, depth and bench play matter far less during the playoffs so the Warriors can rely on their stars once the lights turn bright. Furthermore, the starting unit’s dominance will likely be enough to overwhelm most teams in the regular season. In short, there aren’t many holes in this Golden State team.
