Wizards rating NBA 2k23 got wrong: Kyle Kuzma Overall: 81

When it comes to which Kyle Kuzma ratings are off, there’s a list of them. That’s why a few will be highlighted but it all leads back to one thing – His overall rating is lower than it should be.

Following his emergence both on and off the court for the Washington Wizards last season, Kuz earned an overall rating slightly higher than the 81 he received. Once you dig into specific ratings, you can easily see why his overall isn’t where it should be. Multiple mistakes throughout his ratings lead to him being underrated as an overall player.

First, we’ll start with a smaller complaint that isn’t as bad as some of the other ratings but is still quite wrong. That would be his overall defense, which grades out at 57 overall. While he remains an alright defender at best, he put in the work and effort last year to be shoed in for a higher grade than anything below the 60 marker.

The big miss on Kuzma’s ratings, though, is his playmaking score. He received a 70 overall playmaking despite the strides he took last season in getting his teammates involved on the offensive end.

As a forward that can create for others, he’s simply much better than that score indicates. Kuzma averaged a career-best 3.5 assists per game last season, facilitating on a team that was not easy to create good looks for.

Ultimately, these ratings led Kuzma to be rated a few points too low. It won’t be long before his rating is adjusted up this season.
