As is always the case, a new version of the NBA 2K22 MT PC has been released, bringing with it discussions about how the players are rated. In addition to a handful of players who some gamers believe have perfect overall scores, there are another handful who gamers believe were given the incorrect score.

In some cases, players were given an overall rating that appears to be higher than it should have been, while in other cases, players were given a rating that appears to be lower than they should have received. The reasons for this could stem from a variety of factors, including great players who are rated on par with average players or legends who are strangely underrated in comparison to their peers.

Donte DiVincenzo (78) scored too high.
78 is not the highest ranking in the game, but it is likely a little too high for Donte DiVencenzo of the Milwaukee Bucks, who has a rating of 77. That is not to say that he is a bad player; rather, he simply does not produce at a level that is comparable to the output of other players in his positional range.
While DiVincenzo put up respectable numbers (10.4 points per game, 5.8 rebounds per game) and played solid defense, he isn't the type of player you'd expect to be ranked in the same category as shooters Tyler Herro and Buddy Hield, or defenders Draymond Green, for example. He's a good player on a championship team, but he's not quite on the verge of becoming a household name just yet.

Dwyane Wade (97) is rated too low.
The same thought process leads to the conclusion that a 97 overall is unquestionably one of the best scores a player can receive. In fact, it's more than any active player currently has in NBA 2K22, as the highest-rated current players are LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Gianni Antetokounmpo, and Steph Curry, who are all tied for first place with a rating of 96 points each.
Despite this, Dwyane Wade's rating of 97 feels a little low considering who he is. Wade is widely regarded as one of the three greatest shooting guards in NBA history, along with Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, and is widely considered to be the best in the world. Wade's rating of 97 appears to be adequate in light of their respective ratings of 99 and 98. However, it places him in the same league as players such as Walt Frazier and Steve Nash, who, while great, are not in Wade's league.

Kristaps Porzingis (84) has a ceiling that is too high.
Kristaps Porzingis is a true unicorn when it comes to talent and skills, as his frame and ability on the court are both extremely rare. He is only 7'3" tall, but he has the ability to shoot and handle the ball like a guard, while also blocking a significant number of shots. The problem is that things haven't been going so well for him lately in Dallas, which is a shame.
There have been reports that Porzingis is dissatisfied with Luka Doncic's dominance of the ball, but that is exactly what Dallas requires to be successful. In the midst of Luka's incredible Playoff series against the Clippers, Porzingis was virtually non-existent. His numbers were down across the board, including a drop from 20.1 points per game to 13.1 and an increase from 8.9 rebounds per game to 5.4.

Andre Drummond (79) is ranked too low.
The fact that Andre Drummond is no longer at the top of his game is universally acknowledged, but that does not mean that he has plummeted to the level of one of the league's starting big men, as some have suggested. He may not have been the best rebounder in the league anymore, but he still averaged 12 per game.
Despite the fact that he belongs to the upper echelon of big men, his rating is one reserved for players who don't appear on the court as frequently or have as much of an impact. Additionally, Drummond averaged approximately 15 points per game, all while playing less than 25 minutes per game, which is quite remarkable given his limited playing time.

Michael Porter Jr.'s (84) score is too high.
Michael Porter Jr. is a young small forward who came into the league with high expectations because he is extremely talented and appears to be on track to become a major star in the NBA. He had a rough rookie season, but he rebounded well as a sophomore and was even better last season, increasing his scoring average by approximately ten points per game.
His increase in overall performance is understandable, but his score of 84 appears to be a little high. This places him in the same league as players such as Jamal Murray, Jrue Holiday, De'Aaron Fox, Brandon Ingram, and C. J. McCollum, who are all considered to be superior to him on the court and have accolades such as All-Star selections and NBA championships to their credit.

Anthony Edwards (81) is ranked too low.
There was one serious contender who gave LaMelo Ball a real run for his money, despite the fact that many people thought he should have won the NBA Rookie of the Year award in the first place. Anthony Edwards, the Minnesota Timberwolves' first-round draft pick, would be the player in question. The shooting guard came on strong in the second half, putting together an outstanding performance.
Edwards ended up being a fantastic player for the Minnesota Timberwolves, averaging 19.3 points per game and 4.7 rebounds per game. He has had several high-scoring games and has been at the center of several highlight-reel plays. He is a rising star on the rise. It is fair to say that his 81 rating does not do him justice, and the same could be said about Tyrese Haliburton, who is in a similar situation.

Kyle Anderson (78) scored too high.
Kyle Anderson, like DiVencenzo, has an overall rating of 78. Anderson has never really stepped up in a significant way in the league, and that may be too much for him to handle. He is not among the league's best players, but he is among the most talented. To be fair, his best work came during this past season.
Anderson averaged 12.4 points per game, which was the most in his career. However, his previous high was only 8.0 points per game, and he is only 27 years old, which is considered the peak of a player's career. It is possible that Anderson's ascent will continue, but for the time being, he is unlikely to be considered on the same level as Joe Harris or Tyler Herro.

Russell Westbrook (86) is rated too low.
To be completely honest, this one almost comes across as a slap in the face to the reader. It is not enough to say that Russell Westbrook is one of the best players in the league; he is also one of the greatest players to ever step foot on a basketball court. Only one other person had ever averaged a triple-double over the course of an entire season before him.

Now, in the last five seasons, Westbrook has accomplished this feat a total of four times in his career. While there are flaws in Westbrook's game, he is unapologetically himself and always gives his all on the court. Giving the point guard an 86 rating makes no sense when you consider how good of a player he actually is.

Ben Simmons (84) has a soaring IQ.
When Ben Simmons was first introduced in NBA 2K21, it appeared that he had been given an unfairly high rating. He had mostly reached a plateau, particularly on the offensive end, and his rating is still high now that a new game has been released, despite the fact that he has a lower overall score. Simmons appears to have regressed rather than continuing on his offensive course, which is troubling. During the regular season, Simmons maintained his dominance, but once the playoffs began, Simmons was virtually non-existent. With the Hawks, Simmons failed to average double figures, barely shot in the fourth quarter, appeared afraid to take shots, and set a franchise record by making only 33% of his free throws. Now, it appears that teams aren't even interested in having him around.

Trae Young (89) is ranked too low.
Trae Young is the polar opposite of Ben Simmons in that he has never shied away from taking big shots. In fact, it was Simmons' 76ers that Young dispatched in the Playoffs, averaging 29.0 points per game, 10.9 rebounds per game, and a slew of clutch three-pointers. It contributed to Young's development as one of the league's true stars.

Young is content to play the role of the villain on the road, and he will take every necessary shot to keep a crowd under control. He's a dangerous goal scorer who also happens to be an excellent passer, ranking near the top of both categories. Trae Young believes he has played his way into the 90+ club, despite receiving an 89 rating from Golf Digest.
