Last week, we took a look at the top-rated players in the latest rendition of the popular video game, NBA 2K12. Miami Heat forward LeBron James led all current players with a player rating of 98. Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Carmelo Anthony and Deron Williams were all rated above 90 by the game on a scale of 1-100.

Here's the flipside. The following is a list of the worst-rated players on each team. The absolute worst of the worst is Oklahoma City Thunder center Byron Mullens, who rates as a 40. The rest of the bottom five: Chicago Bulls forward Brian Scalabrine (41), Toronto Raptors center Alexis Ajinca (42), Utah Jazz center Kyrylo Fesenko (42) and San Antonio Spurs forward Steve Novak (43).

The worst overall player ratings in NBA 2K12

Oh how I wish I was paid simply to write an article...whether it was worth reading, coherent, interesting or none of the above. I follow the Warriors and I have never heard of the Warriors' worst rated player....so obviously the NBA2K (what's with the abbreviations?) is messed up when Lebron James is the highest rated player at 98 points. He should rate no higher than 94. Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki would probably rank 96 because they have actually accomplished something *in case you don't know that means actually winning an NBA title instead of pretending like you did*
