A new rating update for NBA 2K23 went live just a few days before the end of February. Many prominent players were on the right side of the update, including superstar forward LeBron James. James has seemingly turned back the clock in recent weeks with the Lakers, and the 2K Sports team has adjusted his rating in turn.
How to Get 97 OVR Moments in MyTeam in NBA 2K23
NBA star LeBron James has climbed to a 98 OVR, a +2 OVR increase. The “king” of the league is averaging 29.9 points per game, two points higher than his career average. James is looking to bounce back into the playoffs this spring.
James wasn't the only notable name to get an upgrade. Nets center Nicolas Claxton is the league leader in blocks, and the latest rating update pushed him up to an 85 OVR. That's the highest increase any player has received in this update.
Other notable rating increases that came from this update include Knicks guard Jalen Brunson (87 OVR, +1), Bucks guard Jrue Holiday (87 OVR, +1), Cavs star Darius Garland (87 OVR, +1), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (93 OVR, +1), and Joel Embiid (97 OVR, +1 OVR).
DeAndre Ayton, a former NBA Draft pick, was downgraded to a -1 OVR. Warriors guard Andrew Wiggins, also saw his 2K23 overall rating decrease.
