Russell Westbrook was given an terrible 78-percent

  • A lot changed 2K MT regarding the Los Angeles Lakers when the team decided to make a trade for Russell Westbrook last summer. Los Angeles traded legitimate NBA assets as well as a first-round selection for Westbrook in the move that was widely decried at the time. Everyone who was against the trade were correct, as Westbrook ended up being the biggest thorn in the team's back last season. Now, the Lakers stand in a place that they'd be better off should they decide to trade Westbrook but have probably decided to give up on the possibility of doing so.

    The unfortunate thing is that Westbrook seems to believe that the best player in the world is him. He admitted to taking no responsibility for his team's mishaps during his interview to end the season. Westbrook has an ego in basketball that's extremely hard to break. Perhaps the folks at NBA 2K23 can break that self-confidence a little, however. The ratings for the game are beginning to come out and Westbrook's performance is not that of a top player (which Westbrook thinks he's). It's an average bench player.

    Russell Westbrook was given an terrible 78-percent rating for the overall performance of NBA 2K23. Russell Westbrook has the fourth-highest 2K23 rating on the Los Angeles Lakers. Westbrook is clearly behind the LeBron James team and Anthony Davis but he is not far behind his new colleague as well. The folks over at 2K have given Patrick Beverley a 79 overall rating, which is suitable for the position he's currently in the course of his professional career.

    Westbrook has, in contrast, shared the top spot with Kendrick Nunn, and is slightly higher than the likes of Thomas Bryant and Lonnie Walker IV. It's a major loss of grace for Westbrook but it's 100% justifiable. Westbrook fans will be horrified by this score and will be quick to point to this box-scoring as the cause his rating should likely be around the mid- to upper 80s. Anyone that actually watched Lakers playing basketball during the season can tell the blunder that this box NBA 2K23 MT Safe For Sale score can be, however, and how poorly Westbrook performed last season.
