NBA 2K23 was released recently and it's the talk of the town for most NBA fans. Player ratings for active players have finally been revealed, but 2K might have to fix their inaccuracies for some players.
Each year, 2K releases a newer game, often with improved gameplay and added features. Through the years, devoted players of the game have closely watched how the video game publisher gives their ratings to particular players. There have been inconsistencies on their side which have become a source of debate among fans.
The San Antonio Spurs aren't immune to this experience. On the day of the game's release, a Spurs fan account posted the entire roster's rating for all to see on Twitter. In the post, the two highest-rated players for the Spurs are Keldon Johnson and Devin Vassell. It was logical that they'd be the two top players for San Antonio. But their rating on 2K disappointed many fans.
Johnson and Vassell were rated 82 and 78, respectively. It was their rating after the last update, before their season ended. Even with his incredible physical transformation, Primo is still rated at 72 overall, which is a bit upsetting.
Josh Primo's 2K rating also caught the attention of many fans.
Let's first take a look at Primo's case. Joshua Primo capped off a strong rookie season. Although he didn't see much action during his first year, he showed a lot of promise that he can play in the big leagues. The NBA 2021-22 season ended, and so did the NBA 2K22 updates for players who didn't make it in the playoffs. Because of his limited playing time, Primo received an overall rating of 72. It's also possible that the video game company didn't consider the decent stats that he had in the G League.
For NBA 2K23, the 6-foot-6 guard has a starting rating of 72. Even though the young guard isn't the best player in his draft class, he still deserves a higher overall rating. Even Jeremy Sochan, a rookie that hasn't played a single NBA game, has a higher rating than Primo. That's how you know that most ratings 2K give aren't just.
Yes, Joshua Primo is still a young guard who has a lot to learn. However, his talent shouldn't be overlooked. In his time with the Austin Spurs, the former 12th overall pick averaged 16.7 points, 5.9 assists, and 3.1 rebounds. With the starting point guard slot available, Primo has a chance to bump up his overall rating this season.
