Which players are rated high in NBA 2K23?


Who are rated too high in NBA 2K23?
Christian Wood 84 While Wood has put up good counting stats on bad teams the last couple of years, his all-around impact has never been near an All-Star level. 
Chris Paul 90 CP3 is a legend, but the game has him rated higher than Paul George and Kyrie Irving. That seems like a stretch at age-37.
C.J. McCollum 87 McCollum is two points better than teammate Brandon Ingram? That's what 2K23 says.
Clint Capela 85 Capela might not even be the best center on his own team this year with the emergence of Onyeka Okongwu. He's had a great career as a rim protector and lob threat, but it feels like Capela's play dropped off substantially last year.
Tyler Herro 84 Herro couldn't stay on the court for the Heat in the playoffs, which should have knocked him down several points.
RJ Barrett 84 2K has Barrett rated as the best player on the Knicks, which seems like a stretch to me. They also have him rated as better than Anthony Edwards, which is definitely a stretch.
Wendell Carter Jr. 83 It pains me to put Carter in this section as a long-time fan, but should he really be rated better than Marcus Smart and the same as Jordan Poole? I don't think so.
D'Angelo Russell 81 Drummond essentially signed a minimum contract for the Bulls this offseason, yet he's rated higher than guys on max contracts. He's a perfectly fine backup center, but an 81 rating equates to a solid starter. He's not that anymore.
Serge Ibaka 77 The Bucks got nothing out of Ibaka after acquiring him at the trade deadline last year.
Trendon Watford 76 I like Watford as a young player, but the game gave him the same rating as guys like Kentavious.



Which players are underrated in NBA 2K23?


Who are rated too high in NBA 2K23?
Draymond Green 83 Green's special gifts are things that don't always show up in the box score or easily transfer to attributes assigned to video game characters. His excellent defensive communication skills or sharp rotational instincts are not exactly as sexy as an elite ball handler or shooter.
Zion Williamson 87 If Zion stays healthy, he's going to be in the 90s before the All-Star break.
Brandon Ingram 85 Ingram was so good for the Pelicans in the playoffs last year. Put some respect on that man's name.
Anthony Edwards 83 Edwards has all the makings of an all-time great video game character. No guard in the league is faster or more powerful going to the basket, and he's also a very good outside shooter. Everyone loves Ant-Man. Why did 2K rate him lower than Christian Wood and R.J. Barrett? Makes no sense.
Fred VanVleet 83 VanVleet made the All-Star team for the first time in his career last year, and should be primed for another huge season in Toronto. Something tells me this rating is going to be several points higher by the end of the year.
Marcus Smart 82 Smart being rated worse than Malcolm Brogdon is a choice. The reigning Defensive Player of the Year is a huge part of what makes the Celtics so tough to beat.
OG Anunoby 81 Anunoby made big strides last year, and continues to get more comfortable as a creator. He's better than this.
Franz Wagner 80 Wagner is going to make this rating look very silly by the end of the year. After an impressive rookie season and a killer run in EuroBasket, the big German wing is poised for a breakout second year with the Magic.
Dorian Finney-Smith 78 DFS might have been the Mavericks' second best player on their run to the conference finals last year, and should be an 80 overall at least. There aren't many better pure '3-and-D' wings in the game.
Alex Caruso 78 Caruso is a one-man defensive wrecking crew. The Bulls ascended once they signed him, and the Lakers fell to pieces once he left. His impact is much greater than this rating.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 76 2K has KCP rated as the ninth best player on the Nuggets. He was already a huge part of a title team in Los Angeles, and he's likely going to be on the floor at the end of games for a Nuggets team with similar dreams.
Kenrich Williams 76 Would I really be a basketball blogger if I didn't go to bat for the awesomeness of Kenrich Williams? There is no world where he is a worse player than Darius Bazley right now, but that's how 2K has him ranked.
Joe Harris 76 It feels like Harris was dinged a few points because of his ankle injuries, but if anything, his absence last season showed how valuable he is to the Nets. Without his marksman shooting and sturdy defense, Brooklyn completely collapsed.
Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson's three-point shooting 88 Durant has already complained about not being a 99 overall in the game. Now Klay is airing his own 2K rating grievances on social media as well. Both of them deserve to be in the 90s as three-point shooters as two of the best ever.
