The Dallas Mavericks have two cover athletes in NBA 2K22 which releases on Sept. 10. Current superstar Luka Doncic will be on the standard cover with Mavericks GOAT Dirk Nowitzki as one of three legends featured on the 75th-anniversary front. It was a massive honor for both stars.

Doncic had a massive summer. He also signed a five-year supermax contract extension with the Mavericks. The 22-year-old is about to be an extremely rich man, and he deserves every penny of it. Expect plenty more historic stat lines and wins for Luka and the Mavs.

NBA 2K22 released the ratings of the game’s top ten players, and they disrespected Doncic. Here is a look at his rating and why it should be higher heading into the game’s release.

Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic disrespected by NBA 2K22 rating

Fans can see the Tweet with the game’s top ten players by overall rating below.

Doncic ranks eighth with a 94 overall mark. He continues to prove he is a top-five player in the league. Luka has been named first-team All-NBA two straight years. Having Joel Embiid over Doncic is a mistake. Yes, the Sixers superstar is an outstanding player on both ends of the floor, but he cannot match Luka's greatness.

A case can be made for the Mavericks guard as the best player in the NBA. He led Slovenia to the semifinals at the Olympic Games, and they were one possession away from topping France to reach the finals. Doncic was the best player on the court in their first-round playoff series against Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers. He should be a 95 overall and a top-five player in NBA 2K22.

Luka Doncic will still be a bucket in the game. All Dallas Mavericks fans should get it. The 22-year-old superstar is on the cover and will be a blast to play with in NBA 2K22. Enjoy it.
