We’re breaking down the new NBA 2K23 ratings for all 32 NBA teams, and in this guide, we’re taking a closer look at the Los Angeles Lakers. If you’re curious about who the Lakers’ best players might be, the starting roster, and bench players, here’s everything you need to know.
Los Angeles Lakers – Best Player
The Lakers will also have a total of two players rated 80 or above in NBA 2K23, including:
LeBron James (SF) – 96 OVR
LeBron James (96) is still regarded as one of the best players in the league. After all, he averaged 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 6.2 assists per game last season. James posted the second-highest scoring average of his career and at 37, reached numbers he hadn’t touched since he was 23. It’s no wonder that James still has a 96 overall because there isn’t a thing on the court he can’t do. The best player has to be the most expensive, and if you want to use him in MyTEAM, you need to buy cheap MT 2K23 through U4GM.
Anthony Davis (C) – 90 OVR
Anthony Davis will stay in the 90s club with a round 90 OVR. Davis averaged 23.2 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in 40 games in 2021-22. He is considered one of the best big men in the league due to his play on both sides of the court.
Russell Westbrook (PG) – 78 OVR
Russell Westbrook was given an ugly 78 overall rating on NBA 2K23. The 33-year-old averaged 18.5 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 7.1 assists in 78 games with Los Angeles last season. Although he filled up the stat sheet, he was a poor fit offensively alongside Anthony Davis and LeBron James.
