Russell Westbrook was given an terrible 78 overall rating for NBA 2K23.
A lot changed with the Los Angeles Lakers when the team decided to trade for Russell Westbrook last summer. Los Angeles traded legitimate 2k23 mt assets as well as a pick in the first round for Westbrook in the move that was widely criticized when it was made. The critics of the deal were right, as Westbrook ended up being an enormous thorn in team's camp last season. The Lakers have found themselves in the situation where they'll benefit when they sell Westbrook however they might have decided to give up on the possibility of doing so.
The unfortunate thing is that Westbrook seems to believe that he's an elite player. He did not take any blame for the team's shortcomings during his interview to end the season. Westbrook has an ego in basketball that's difficult to break. Maybe the team the at NBA 2K23 can break that self-confidence a little, though. Ratings for the upcoming game are coming out, and Westbrook's rating is not one of a superstar player (which says he's). It's the bench player with a rotational system.
Russell Westbrook was given an poor 78 rating overall on NBA 2K23. Russell Westbrook has the fourth-highest 2K23 score of the Los Angeles Lakers. Westbrook obviously is behind NBA superstars LeBron Jame and Anthony Davis but he is also behind his newest player as well. 2K gave Patrick Beverley a 79 overall rating, which is fitting for where he is right now in his life.
Westbrook however, is shared the top spot with Kendrick Nunn and is just barely ahead of the likes of Thomas Bryant and Lonnie Walker IV. This is a significant fall from grace for Westbrook however it is totally justified. Westbrook fans will be furious by this score and will use his box score as the reason his rating should probably be in the mid-to-high 80s with Buy 2k23 mt. Anyone who watched Lakers game last season is aware of how misleading the box score is, though, and how poorly Westbrook performed in the last game of the season.
