It includes all five of the starters as well as new additions such Jalen Brunson and the bench players such as Obi Toppin and Rose.Going into this year's version of the popular basketball simulation, I had initially believed MT 2K23 rating would be kind to this team. Chicago Bulls after a bounceback year which saw the team win two All-Star invitations from Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan, an All-Rookie Team selection with Ayo Dosunmu, and even an All-NBA nomination for DeRozan.
It's a shame that I was more than. Several members of the Chicago Bulls have been docked points for their performance from the point they reached last year, and none of them getting a 90 or higher overall ratings or higher.15 players around the league earned a 90 or more, suggesting that the overall consensus in the league is that the Bulls do not have a superstar who can lead Chicago to a championship. Even aside from Chicago's All-Star duo, 2K seems overall dismissive of the talent on this team.
Despite the fact that Michael Jordan graces the front cover, NBA 2K23 couldn't be less wrong about how impressive the actual Chicago Bulls are.2K has four current Bulls players who are ranked among the top 100 players within the game. DeRozan and LaVine take the 19th and 23rd places respectively, while Nikola Vucevic is ranked No. 59. Meanwhile, Lonzo Ball comes as the No. 73. Surprisingly, Andre Drummond is rated as Chicago's fifth-best player and also barely misses the cut.
Following that, the roster's ratings in general are unremarkable. The Bulls backcourt suffers the brunt of the damage, as Alex Caruso, Coby White, and Buy NBA 2K23 MT Dosunmu have all been demoted to a point at a time when common sense says they should be even better next season. Dosunmu's overall score of 76 is particularly egregious, as he was recently named All-Rookie. Fellow second Team guard Josh Giddey posted roughly equal statistics to Dosunmu (and was defeated by Ayo in head-to-head matches) as a player, but got a superior 82 overall score.
