Another year of basketball will soon be upon us, which means it’s also that time of year we get to overreact about the ratings of our favorite players in NBA 2K. This year’s roster ratings largely reflect how poorly the Chicago Bulls played throughout last year, with some notable names taking big hits to their ratings. At the same time, one player in particular managed to be a silver lining and build up his value since last year’s game.
Although the Bulls regressed as a whole, they still managed to receive an 81 overall rating as a team. This puts them on the lower end of tier 2 teams for online play, which isn’t great, but it’s still better than being a tier 3 tanking team.
Here are the ratings for each Chicago Bulls player in the recently released NBA 2K24.
- DeMar DeRozan: 86
- Zach LaVine: 86
- Nikola Vucevic: 84
- Lonzo Ball: 81
- Alex Caruso: 78
- Patrick Williams: 77
- Andre Drummond: 77
- Coby White: 76
- Torrey Craig: 75
- Jevon Carter: 75
- Ayo Dosunmu: 74
- Dalen Terry: 72
- Terry Taylor: 71
- Julian Phillips: 70
- Justin Lewis: 67
- Carlik Jones: 67
Chicago Bulls full roster and player ratings in NBA 2K24
Risers: Alex Caruso
After winning a well-deserved All-Defensive First Team selection last season, I expect Alex Caruso to own several difference-making badges on defense this year. His overall a=has also seen an increase, after being ranked 76 one year ago.
Fallers: DeMar DeRozan, Zach LaVine
Both of the Bulls’ prime stars took a slight tumble in this year’s edition of 2K. After being ranked 90 in 2K21 and 87 in 2K22, DeMar’s 86 is the lowest he’s had in quite some time. In fact, the last time he was ranked below an 86 was all the way back in 2K16. Zach LaVine also falls here after being ranked 87 or higher in the last three seasons.
Surprises: Lonzo Ball, Nikola Vucevic
What really surprised me the most was seeing how Lonzo Ball has only dropped one overall point down to 81. With his career in jeopardy, I expected him to take a deep dive down the ratings system. Meanwhile, Nikola Vucevic did not receive a bump up despite a much-improved outing from him last year.
