San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard had his NBA 2K18 rating revealed.

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard became one of the NBA’s top stars over the past few seasons. His rise to prominence saw its biggest leap in the 2016-17 NBA season, as he averaged over 25 points per game and finished third in the NBA MVP voting. Russell Westbrook and James Harden finished first and second, respectively.

This fall, 2K Sports will put out its latest basketball video game, NBA 2K18. In it, Leonard’s talent will be represented well, as 2K announced his official rating for the game. It will be a 95 overall rating.

The announcement can be seen below:

For Leonard’s 95 rating, it’s not known what his attribute-specific numbers are, but for a mark this high, they must be excellent across the board. That goes for his shooting, passing, rebounding, and defensive abilities, the latter of which are broken down in the game. This will make him one of the best players to play with in NBA 2K18.

Leonard joined a growing list of players to have their overall rating revealed. What players had equal or better marks than the Klaw?

  • Kevin Durant – 96
  • Stephen Curry – 94
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo – 91
  • Karl-Anthony Towns – 91
  • Paul George – 91
  • Kyrie Irving – 90
  • John Wall – 90
  • DeMar DeRozan – 89
  • Damian Lillard – 89
  • Isaiah Thomas – 89

So, Leonard stands well above most of the players that got their overall ratings released. Those 10 (and Leonard) weren’t the only ones to have their rating unveiled, with rookies, sophomores, and other big names to be officially marked for NBA 2K18.
