I'm aware that year after year I find myself caring far too much about the implications of this game to offer, however we should not deny that it can provide us with a decent idea of 2K MT how players are viewed as we enter the new year. Consider it a massive power ranking of almost every player that is in the league. It's one that actually does give the Bulls' roster some respect this time around.
NBA 2K23 announced today that DeMar's DeRozan has checked into the game with an 89 overall, and Zach LaVine will enter the season set at 88. The ranking is a pretty significant boost for DeRozan following being ranked just 85. For LaVine, however, he only moves one slot to NBA 2K22's 87.While I believe they both deserve to reach the 90s milestone, an 88 and 89 place them in fairly good company.
In this instance, DeRozan is placed ahead of Rudy Gobert and just two places further behind Devin Booker. LaVine ranks higher than players like Zion Williamson and Jaylen Brown.One aspect that DeRozan also has an advantage over is the top spot on the dunking charts. LaVine's 95 ranks him below his only Ja Morant as well as Zion Williamson as one of the league's top slammers.
The rest of the Bulls roster is not been confirmed yet, however, 2KRatings.com does have an unofficial list worth a look. Behind DeRozan and LaVine it is no surprise that behind them is an overall 83 Nikola Vucevic, followed by Lonzo Ball, who scored 82 and Andre Drummond with a somewhat unexpected 81.
The most gravely affecting ranking is associated with the player who has possibly the most high expectations. Right now, Patrick Williams is only listed at a 74. that puts him on par with Goran Dragic and Derrick Jones Jr. yet is he a step behind ... Tony BRADLEY! ?
Fortunately, when the game releases on September 9th all these numbers will be susceptible to changes. The game's updates are based on player performance throughout the year, and I'm excited to see each and every member of this Bulls team rise up the leaderboards this month of October (those aren't unreasonable expectations, surely? )!
