Charlotte Hornets fans will want to know how their team’s players stack up on NBA 2K24.

Every year, NBA fans eagerly await the release of the latest NBA 2K. This year, NBA 2K24 drops on September 8 and projects to be the biggest title in the franchise’s history. Part of what makes this year’s NBA 2K so special is that it’s the first title that supports cross-platform play, allowing Xbox series X/S and PlayStation 5 users to compete against each other.

Of course, play ratings will be a big discussion among NBA fans as they debate which players have been disrespected by the franchise, with many believing their team’s star player should sit higher up within the game hierarchy.

With that being said, let’s take a look at each Charlotte Hornets’ player ratings for the latest edition of the NBA 2K franchise.

LaMelo Ball – 86

Did any Charlotte Hornets players get disrespected by their NBA 2K ratings?

The Hornets are a rebuilding roster with limited high-end talent. As such, it’s hard to imagine anyone on their roster being disrespected. LaMelo Ball is the clear-cut best player on the team but is coming off an ankle injury that cost him the majority of the 2022-23 season, and he still secured an 86 overall, which seems fair.

Outside of LaMelo, the biggest news is Brandon Miller being given a 78 rating right out of the gate — the same rating as former All-Star Gordon Hayward. Miller was the second-overall selection in the 2023 NBA Draft, so having a high rating for him (and high hopes to go with it,) makes perfect sense. It’s also the same rating as third-overall pick Scoot Henderson, who the Portland Trail Blazers drafted.

Overall, it appears as though NBA 2K got the ratings correct for the Hornets roster. And, as usual, the in-season updates will ensure player’s in-game ratings match their performance levels throughout the season.
