Top 10 Players of NBA 2K23 Revealed
Giannis Antetokounmpo- Milwaukee Bucks- 97 OVR
Giannis Antetokounmpo already has a hall of fame career. Each season, Giannis seems to progress at an astronomical rate, adding more weapons to become one of the most dominant players in the league. After winning a championship in the 2020-2021 season, Giannis bolstered career highs in PPG in the 2021-2022 season and playoffs. Giannis is the best-rated player in 2K23.
LeBron James- Los Angeles Lakers- 96 OVR
We should appreciate LeBron James while we can. King James is the oldest player to average 30 PPG. He is one season away from passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scorers’ list. But, embarking on his 20th season, LeBron has more in the tank to bring the Lakers’ 18th championship banner.
Stephen Curry- Golden State Warriors- 96 OVR
The greatest shooter of all time captured his fourth championship ring. In doing so, Curry captured the one thing that has eluded him during his championship runs, a Finals MVP. He is the first winner of the Magic Johnson Conference Finals MVP. Curry showcased why he is still one of the best players in the league.
Kevin Durant- Brooklyn Nets- 96 OVR
Easy Money Sniper made a lot of noise during the off-season. However, don’t let that distract you from KD being one of the most lethal scorers in the league. Durant doesn’t show any signs of slowing down despite sustaining a career-altering injury three years ago. He, Kyrie Irving, and Ben Simmons look to run it back again in the 2022-2023 season.
Nikola Jokić- Denver Nuggets- 96 OVR
Rounding out the top 5 is the back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic. Jokic is easily one of the best playmaking big men to play. Despite missing Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr., Jokic carried the nuggets to a six-seed in the Western Conference. He averaged career highs in points, blocks, steals, and rebounds.
Joel Embiid- Philadelphia 76ers- 96 OVR
Starting off the list is the runner-up MVP, Joel Embiid. Despite the debacle with Ben Simmons, the Kansas standout showed why he is one of the best players in the league. Joel Embiid led the league in scoring, with career highs in assists and steals. With James Harden as his second option, the Eastern Conference will have their hands full.
Luka Dončić- Dallas Mavericks- 96 OVR
Dallas has found another European hero in Luka Dončić. Luka matches up with the best and outplays them on occasion. His feel for the game has garnered compliments from the likes of LeBron James, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant. As time goes by, Luka could be the face of the league.
Kawhi Leonard- Los Angeles Clippers- 93 OVR
Kawhi Leonard may not say much, but his game speaks for itself. Despite missing the 2021-2022 season with an injury, Kawhi is still among the league’s best. Defensively, he gives your favorite player fits. However, Kawhi has morphed into a venerable offensive threat capable of scoring on all three levels.
Ja Morant- Memphis Grizzlies- 93 OVR
Ja Morant had a scintillating third season in the NBA. The Murray State star bolstered career highs almost across the board, showing much-improved shooting in the process. Morant captured his first all-star nomination, was recognized as the league’s most improved player, and was selected to a 2nd All-NBA team for his troubles.
Jayson Tatum- Boston Celtics- 93 OVR
Jayson Tatum is as gifted as they come. The Duke standout relished in his role on the Celtics and is slowly becoming a borderline superstar in the process. Tatum captured the Larry Bird Eastern Conference MVP. Despite a less than impressive Finals showing, the Celtics are a big threat to anyone in the league.
Jimmy Bulter- Miami Heat- 93 OVR
Jimmy Butler is one of the best two-way players in the league. Since becoming the star in Miami, Butler was inches to becoming a champion in 2020 and 2022. Butler is as gritty as they come and competes with the best of the best.
