However, I could not be more than. There are a number of players on the Chicago Bulls have been docked points off their ratings from where they finished in the last season, nobody receiving a 90 overall ranking or higher.15 players around the league were rated 90 or higher, signalling that the consensus view in this league that Bulls do not have a star that could lead Chicago to a title. With the exception of Chicago's All-Star pair, MT 2K23 seems overall dismissive of the talent on this team.
Despite the fact Michael Jordan graces the front cover, NBA 2K23 couldn't be more wrong about how talented these actual Chicago Bulls are.2K has four currently Bulls players who are ranked among the top 100 players within the game. DeRozan and LaVine sit in the 19th as well as the 23rd spots respectively, while Nikola Vucevic is ranked No. 59. Lonzo Ball comes in at No. 73. A bit surprising, Andre Drummond is rated as Chicago's fifth best player. He also barely makes it to the top five.
Following that, the roster's rating as a whole is an absolute wreck. The Bulls backcourt suffers a big hit, as Alex Caruso, Coby White, and Dosunmu are all downgraded to a point at a time when normal sense dictates that they should all be even better next season. Dosunmu's overall score of 76 is especially egregious considering that the player just won All-Rookie accolades. The First Team guard Josh Giddey posted roughly equal statistics in comparison to Dosunmu (and was heavily dominated by Ayo in head-to-head matchups) as a starter but earned a higher overall score.
The rookie Dalen Terry has been given an absurd 70 overall rating that is lower than even the likes of previous Bulls Matt Thomas, Denzel Valentine, Troy Brown Jr., and Tomas Satoransky. Three of those players aren't even on an NBA roster, and the fourth is a minimum "prove you're a good player" contract and will soon be joining the other three players if he doesn't step up in a big way.
I'm not expecting Terry to be the first to emerge and light things up immediately, but placing Dalen below these players is pretty ridiculous all things considered.As all things considered, Buy NBA 2K MT has rated the Chicago Bulls in "Tier 2" which means that they're not among the top 10 league teams.
