2. Fred VanVleet (83)
Apparently, becoming an All-Star and establishing yourself as one of the best shooters in the league is only good enough to get you on par with Wendell Carter Jr. and slightly above Tobias Harris. Did the 2K rating wizards not see what an impact VanVleet had on the roster?
VanVleet not only averaged over 20 points per game and just under seven assists per contest, but he did so while also showing extreme competency as an on-ball perimeter defender. The improvement from what VanVleet was during his backup days to now has been staggering.
Toronto Raptors: Fred VanVleet needs to be ranked better in NBA 2K23.
VanVleet and Draymond Green are the lowest-rated players that were All-Stars last season. Green is one step away from being completely broken as a shooter, while VanVleet had his best season yet. Even one or two overall ticks higher would have been an acceptable mark.
Anyone who is still unaware of the impact that VanVleet can have on a team is doing so out of an unwillingness to see what he can do. Hopefully, the Raptors know full well what he is capable of when it comes time to agree on a new contract.
