dozens of NBA 2K23 player ratings have been released by 2K Games. We do not know every single stat of every single player just yet, but what we do know is who the most highly-rated players in the game are. Only one player may be the greatest NBA 2K23 player, but who is it?
Players and fans alike alike are always debating whether or not a player will be overrated, who will be underrated, who will be rated just right, and, of course, who will be the best player in the game.
Who is the highest-rated player in NBA 2K23?
In NBA 2K23, there are five players with the same OVR rating of 96. None of them is the greatest player in the game. That title goes to Giannis Antetokounmpo, a two-time MVP who is rated one level higher at 97 OVR.
LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Nikola Jokic, and Joel Embiid are all 96 OVR, and they all deserve to be the NBA 2K23s' top dogs. Durant already expressed his displeasure at being rated at the highest level of 99.
Aye @Ronnie2K I'll need an explanation on why Im not a 99? This has become ridiculous https://t.co/oySQUtcDP2.
Luka Doncic, a Slovenian sensation who did not crack the top five with his 95 OVR, is the other player who might have something to say about his rating. He is regarded by many as the NBA's future leader, but the future isnt now.
Kawhi Leonard is somewhat controversially ranked the eighth-best player in the game with a 94 rating. On the other side of the coin is Jayson Tatum, who led his team to the NBA Finals this year yet is ranked at a lower 93 OVR. Jimmy Butler and Ja Morant, two other players who enjoyed playoff success last season, join Tatum's list.
