Paul George: 90 Overall (+1)

2K giveth, and 2K taketh away. In George's case, the game gives. That seems reasonable. In fact, it feels unreasonable that George ever dropped below 90.

Perhaps some of his durability sliders slipped. That's the only logical explanation as to why George wasn't a 90 overall player in the first place. In any event, 2K has corrected the course by bumping his rating up to 90.

James Harden: 86 Overall (-1)

James Harden will always be a polarizing player. Some will suggest that his rating is too high, and others will claim the opposite. Did he deserve to see a one-point drop?

It's a tough call. Harden is averaging 15.6 points and 9.9 assists per game in March. That's not far removed from the 17.1 and 8.6 he's averaging on the season, and if anything, it points to a player who's progressing toward a more natural distributing role for this team.

On the other hand, his efficiency has taken a hit. Harden is shooting 41.4% from the field in March and 34.1% from long range. That's a far cry from his 43.9/39.5 split on the season. That's likely the reason why his rating has dropped.

Ivica Zubac: 81 Overall (-1)

By contrast, there's nothing complicated about Zubac's drop. The big man is averaging 11.3 points and 9.1 rebounds per game on the year. In March, those numbers have dropped to 9.2 and 7.7.

This is nothing for LA Clippers fans to worry about. Zubac is a role player: a drop in his production doesn't mean much in the team's grand scheme. Nonetheless, we can expect a corresponding drop in his 2K rating.
