NBA 2K23 Ratings Reveal day has finally arrived, giving basketball fans around the world some clarity on how Visual Concepts evaluates the active talent in today's game.

For those interested in pulling up from deep with confidence, here is the list of the top five rated 3-point shooters in NBA 2K23 at launch.

NBA 2K23 Ratings: Top 5 3-Point Shooters

Here's a list of the players with the top-five highest Three-Point Shot (3PT) ratings in the game:

  1. Stephen Curry 99 3PT
  2. Klay Thompson 88 3PT
  3. Desmond Bane 88 3PT
  4. Kevin Durant 88 3PT
  5. Luke Kennard 88 3PT

Ultimately, the top five this time around does differ a bit from 2K22, with Desmond Bane and Luke Kennard replacing Joe Harris and Karl-Anthony Towns.

Of course, with him being the best shooter of all-time, Steph Curry certainly deserves that top spot. A 99 3PT could be seen with some skepticism since he did shoot a career-worst 38% from three during the regular season last year, however.

As seen in past years, NBA 2K23 does seem to follow the series' odd pattern in that most high-level shooters are pretty much all grouped up at a 88 3PT rating.

Behind the scenes, however, it does appear that there will be more that goes into shooting this time around as NBA 2K23 will feature the addition of four Shooting Attributes to Signature Jump Shot Animations that help determine their effectiveness: Shot Speed, Release Height, Defensive Immunity and Timing Impact.
