With new video games hitting consoles the last few weeks, they are looking more realistic than ever. They also continue to remind us that their not real, however - like Zion Williamson being a higher overall than the 2020 Rookie of the Year Point Guard Ja Morant.

Looking at the Memphis Grizzlies player overalls, things can get conflicting as this is the same roster from the 2020 season, but will change once free agency and the NBA Draft wrap up in late November. I wrote about how 2K planned to catch up given the unfortunate circumstances here.

If you want to play with the Grizzlies on 2K21, it will be under ‘Play Now’ in the main menu. If you play against people online, you will notice that 2K has the Grizzlies as a tier two NBA team due to their team overall of 85. They are a fun team to play with on the current gen game. Without further adieu, here are your Grizzlies overalls:

Memphis Grizzlies - 85 Overall

  • Ja Morant: 85
  • Jaren Jackson Jr.: 83
  • Jonas Valanciunas: 81
  • Brandon Clarke: 80
  • Dillon Brooks: 77
  • Justise Winslow: 77
  • Tyus Jones: 76
  • De’Anthony Melton: 75
  • Kyle Anderson: 75
  • Gorgui Dieng: 74
  • Josh Jackson: 73
  • John Konchar: 72
  • Grayson Allen: 72
  • Anthony Tolliver: 71
  • Jontay Porter: 71
  • Marko Guduric: 69
  • Yuta Watanabe: 68

Some quick thoughts on the roster overalls.

  • Grayson Allen at 72 overall is wild due to his solid showing in the bubble and in the regular season. I figured Grayson would be a 75 or 76 overall, so 2K didn’t miss too by too much on his overall.
  • The two Grizzlies rookies from last season are 80 or higher, and that is huge if you run with this team on the game. Clarke and Morant are fun in the PnR, as Clarke bolts to the rim for lobs in Play now.

You can also take the some of the best Memphis Grizzlies out on the floor as well in 2K21. The 05-06’ Grizzlies, along with the All-time Memphis Grizzlies starting five that features Mike Conley, Tony Allen, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Pau Gasol (Zach Randolph is sixth man), and Marc Gasol.
