Young is definitely one of the most talked-about players in the NBA this season. He has been one of the most recognizable faces in “NBA 2K20” promos lately, and that is for a good reason. The sophomore point guard has been leading the Atlanta Hawks with his consistent scoring.

“NBA 2K20” players may have some opinions about Young’s defensive skills, but his recent numbers on other aspects of the game shows why he deserves the upgrade. His monthly per-game points average between November and December was maintained at over 28 points. In the games he has played this month, he is already showing an improvement averaging 32.5 points so far in 2020.

As for Jokic, some fans think he deserves more than just a +1 in the latest “NBA 2K20” ratings update. It is also not hard to see their point since Jokic has been improving in the previous months. His per-game average points were up by 5 between November and December (15.8 to 20.8), and he is continuing that path in the games that he has played this year. This month, he is so far averaging 25.8 points per game.
