The two-time NBA all-star is coming off of seasons where he averaged more than 18.5 points and 12 rebounds, all while playing on a rather mediocre Indiana Pacers roster. He's arguably one of the lesser-known players in the NBA, and one could argue that his 86 total in NBA 2K22 is a bit low for the amount of work he's put in so far in his promising career.
In a vacuum , glancing at Julius Randle's statistics from his regular season could be a sign that his 87 points overall in NBA 2K22 was earned and is extremely accurate. His 2021 NBA Playoffs performance, on contrary, completely changed the rules of what type of player Randle is.
It could have been nervousness, but if he wants to be recognized by NBA fans who aren't from New York City as one of the top players, then he'll have get noticed when the brightest. A fix to this could help him rise to the level of elite.
Despite the awe-inspiring popularity Zion Williamson is, making him an overall score of 89 this early seems rather outrageous for the people who created NBA 2K22. When the ratings were revealed for this year's NBA 2K title, Williamson's was the most prominent point of contention among reviewers and fans.
It's clear he has the best talent in the world and could eventually become the face of the NBA however, it's a bit early to place him get a higher score in comparison to players like Dominicas Sabonis, who is more skilled currently in their respective careers.
