NBA 2K23: Top 10 Shooting Guards

The following is Visual Concepts' official list of the best two guards in NBA 2K23:

  • Devin Booker - 91 OVR
  • Donovan Mitchell - 88 OVR
  • Zach LaVine - 88 OVR
  • Bradley Beal - 87 OVR
  • Jaylen Brown - 87 OVR
  • Brandon Ingram - 86 OVR
  • Tyrese Maxey - 85 OVR
  • Cade Cunningham - 84 OVR
  • Tyler Herro - 84 OVR
  • Desmond Bane - 83 OVR

Phoenix's Devin Booker has averaged more than 24.9 points per in the last five seasons and the NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete spent all of 2021-22 setting personal bests in scoring (26.8), rebounds (5.0), steals (1.1), and three point percentage (.383). Donovan Mitchell's height still didn't affect his output last season (25.9 points, 5.3 assists) and while he's destined to improve in Cleveland, don't count out Zach LaVine. The two-time NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion has averaged over 23.5 points per game in his last four seasons with the Bulls, including a career-high 27.4 in 2020-21.

Boston's Jaylen Brown is a menace on both sides of the ball, Miami's Tyler Herro is still a lock for Sixth Man Of The Year, and even with Brandon Ingram and Tyrese Maxey putting up numbers in different rotations for the Pelicans and Sixers, Desmond Bane has shot 43% from three in each of his first two seasons with the Grizzlies. But what's with Bradley Beal? "Big Panda" was limited to just 40 games with the Wizards in 2021-22 and despite shooting woes, he re-upped with the team for five more years in a conscious effort to turn things around (and show off some new D.C. classics).

Honorable Mentions

Next up includes New York's Jalen Brunson (83) and Golden State's Jordan Poole (83) and Klay Thompson (83) as well as Houston's Jalen Green (82), and Boston's Malcolm Brogdon (82).
