While he won’t have been the flashiest player on the Boston Celtics roster in his short time playing for the team last season after being dealt to the Celtics on the 2022 NBA trade deadline, veteran guard Derrick White is proving to be the fastest player on the team when it comes to NBA 2K rating for the approaching 2022-23 season.
Or at the least he was in response to the most recent round of updates to the favored basketball simulation game chronicled in a recent assessment by HoopsHype, anyway. White can also be tied for having the seventh-fastest speed rating in NBA 2K23, sharing a 90 Speed rating with Orlando Magic wing RJ Hampton, with the pair each having an 88 Speed rating with the ball for good measure.
White and Hampton find themselves rated just behind recent Cleveland Cavalier wing Donovan Mitchell’s 96 Speed rating (rated 83 with the ball), and just ahead of Houston Rockets shooting guard Daishen Nix’s 90 Speed rating (87 with the ball).
The Boston Celtics still find themselves at the highest of the projections within the East for expected regular season wins — but where do their starters rank after the Mitchell deal? https://t.co/kaG3vinpRi
