34.0 0.492 0.250 0.774 2.2 7.4 9.6 2.2 0.8 1.7 1.0 2.5 19.2

Notice how even with Kobe and Gasol on his team, he managed to put up similar PPG, rebound better than Jefferson with another 7 footer on his team and shoot a better percentage from the floor than Al jefferson and slightly less than Dwight. Let us not forget that Dwight scores most of his points under basket or from oops because he has a weak post game.

Bynum played behind a future hall of famer and a great big and yet he still puts up similar numbers to Dwight.

Listen, I am by NOOOOO means a Laker fan or Philly fan, but that kid Bynum is really under rated when compared to Dwight.

Watch this video, they brought up good points about both. I honestly prefer Bynum.

Well your analysis is missing alot. First off playing with Kobe and Gasol makes things alot easier for Bynum. When Kobe missed those 6-7 games this year Bynum's PPG went up slightly but his FG% suffered due to teams not having to account for Kobe. What teams are keying in on Jason Richardson that way? Also if you use Synergy it will show you that Dwight is 2nd overall in Pick and Roll finishing efficiency at 74% and Bynum is 57% which is about avg for a big man. They are roughly equal on post up looks and we arent even going to discuss defense because we all know the difference is night and day between the two. Also the 3rd option excuse is moot because 3rd options arent the main focus for defenses and both guys avg the same amount of FGs a game. Only thing Bynum has on Dwight is FT shooting.

I guess man. Nothing about Deron's defense jumps out at me. CP3 always gets knocked because he's smaller but his IQ is much much higher.
 
# 63 SteboSSK @ 09/01/12 12:26 AM
Another thing, never use a video from First Take to back up anything sports related. That program is a sideshow that is 90 percent entertainment. Very little substance.

He does have a great IQ I think they both due.. And CP3 also has great steal numbers. I'm just looking at it from a match up stand point.. Deron is very versatile defensively like a Rondo or Billups type of player... You can't go wrong with either of the two.. But everybody here seems to think D Rose should be way up there.. If you don't take Deron you take CP3, they're easily the top 2 in my book
 
# 65 SteboSSK @ 09/01/12 01:05 AM
CP3 is a much better on ball defender than Dwill. Dwill's on ball defense is around the same as Steve Nash. Funny thing Nash is actually better against PnR looks than Dwill is.

I am not saying that I think these guys deserves those ratings just my prediction on how 2k will rate them.

DWill is no where near the defensive player that CP3, Westbrook and Rondo are. He's a great shooter and offensive player and is stronger than most point guards, however, CP3's assist/defense/steals and Westbrook's athleticism/scoring/steals should give those two the edge in overall ratings- by a point or two. Still, all great players.

Dude steal numbers don't equal great on ball defense.. Steal number more reflect quick hands.. The same reason a player like AI always had impressive steal numbers.. You're gonna tell me he was a great defensive player too???

I never said anything negative about CP3, Westbrook, or Rondos defense???....I said Deron was more versatile defensively than CP3.. And CP3 and Deron have almost identical assist stats over their career so giving CP the esge doesnt make sense, especially since he has been dishing off to far better teammates...

and Westbrook should in no way be above either of them.. He shouldn't even be above Rondo.. Do you even know what a PG I supposed to do??? It sure as hell isn't jack up 20+ shots per game and gamble around all over on defense, taking shots early in the shot clock and not getting your team into a flow early in games.. As far as being an overall player yeah Westbrook is a stud, as far as being a PG he still needs a lot of work

The only edge he has over any of them is his athletic ability, which should never automatically give you a higher overall.. Not to mention D Will has been on a horrible team this past year while Westbrook and CP3 have had the luxury of playing on really good playoff teams.

Deron is by far the most versatile player offensively of all the PGs.. He can hit the 3s like CP3, get to the hole as well as Rondo, or Rose.. Nail the pull up as well as Westbrook all while playing under control and smart much like CP3 does.. he passes as well as CP3, while I would have Rondo slightly ahead of them both in that department..

. Don't let one off year hurt Deron's legacy.. Like I said ESPN and NBA.com both had him rated as the top PG in the league, even back when CP3 was making a run at the MVP award, and Steve Nash was still very impressive.. I guess they were wrong too?

He is a great athlete and I honestly feel if he gets the jumper he could be the best UK player in the NBA long term, over Davis, over Wall, over Cousins. I know, strong words but I watched that team play every game last year and MKG drove that team to excellence. When he played well that took that team to a whole another level last year in the NCAA Tourney.
Yep, same here, I watched him play alot of games with Kentucky, and he very well could be a guy for the Bobcats to build a team around. He's a team first guy, this guy could fill it up offensively, but he was fine with sharing the load, and if he isn't scoring he's doing other things to help his team out, He prides himself on defense, and he will grab those boards.

He needs to change his jumpshot's release, it has a hitch in it, and right now it is spotty. But he takes contact on shot's like Lebron, and is extremely athletic. Bobcats fans will fall in love with this guy. 78 is fair, but I don't think it's a stretch to say by 2k15, he'll be in the 90's.

Along with having good skills you have to have the right head on you're shoulders, and Bynum doesn't have that.
No.

and it's not even debatable. Not only that, but even Duncan is still better than Hibbert.

"even" Duncan lol

Timmy is so underrated right now for some reason
 
# 72 setis @ 09/01/12 09:30 AM
I donīt agree with giving rating to players based on the numbers they get.

For example, before Lin exploded, he was unusable on the game. After linsanity, he gets faster, better dribbling, better pass, better awareness.... attributes that the player, in real life, had already before Linsanity.

Same thing with Lance Stephenson. The guy didnīt play last year and he is completely unusable in 2k12. Even though he is mad quick and has great dribbles... his ratings in those 2 attributes are very low.

Now that Bynum is going to get more shots, will he get better ratings in shooting, rebounding, etc..? It doesnīt make sense to me.

It is like having two 65 overall players. Both 65 overall, but both completely different. One might be a Rebounding Specialist, the other a 3 Point Shooter. Do not let the overall ratings get to your head. Just pretend that number doesn't exist. They need to remove the rating in favor of A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C, etc. LeBron no doubt is an A+ overall (96-99) as Kobe is an A overall (93-95) or whatever scale they tend to use.

The number should be changed to a letter grade and let the CPU have it hidden as a number to distinguish the rotations for CPU controlled teams.
Letter grades would be HORRENDOUS. This ain't Fast Break Basketball.

It actually sounds like a good idea.

but then people like you wouldn't have much to complain about anymore.

"OMG why is Joel Anthony a 62 and Eddy Curry a 64 ?!?, he doesn't even start !!!"

with grades they both can be D+.

You do know his rating is currently a 78. So you are going to sit here and say it needs to be one point lower? I don't understand.

When you press L3, you actually get letter grades for attributes. They should also have the OVR become a letter grade as well.

It should be capped at a certain overall for D- ... like for Scalabrine, 40 OVR can be a D- because realistically, an F rated player would not be in the NBA.

Arguing over who is better among these point guards is kind of ridiculous, as they are all top tier, all-star level guards who will all be up around 90-94. However, I do have a couple general points to bring up in regards to Westbrook:

(1) I keep hearing people complaining that he's "not a real point guard" cause he shoots too much or drives too much or doesn't pass enough, as that's not what point guards are supposed to do. Well, "point guard" is just a label to fit players into definable roles. Once they're on the court, it's just basketball. Westbrook transcends his position, as he is on his own planet in terms of explosiveness and athletic ability. He shouldn't be penalized because he plays the position differently, he should be rewarded because he plays it in ways other point guards cannot. Similarly, Power Forwards are not, traditionally, supposed to be jump-shooting scorers and 3pt specialists, yet Dirk became one of the best players ever doing just that. He transcended the position (and really changed it forever).

(2) The whole, "so-and-so was playing on a better team so he had better players that made it easier for him" argument is incredibly short-sighted. One of the main reasons OKC is a great team is BECAUSE Westbrook is on the team. They're not two exclusive things. (Same with CP3 making the Clippers into a playoff team- it's because he's so great.) The fact that Westbrook can put up such big numbers while playing alongside another, more prolific scorer should prove that he is, in fact, even better than his numbers suggest. The same way Bosh's numbers went down when Wade/LeBron get all the shots (and Wade's numbers went down alongside LeBron, etc), should make numbers that Westbrook puts up along side Durant even more impressive.

Again, DWill is great. He should get a 90-91 rating. However, I personally believe that Westbrook has certain skills outside of shooting and passing that are better and will make him just as good (if not slightly better) in terms of overall rating. I could see them both at 91 to be honest. CP3 will (and should) be slightly better rated than both, even though DWill will be a better scorer.

Well, Griffin is now an 86, Love is an 89. I think Bosh deserves to be between them, but it depends on how much 2k bases on stats. Bosh's stats are hurt by having two dominant players on his team. I think he deserves an 87, but I feel he will get less, maybe an 84 or 85.

Im a troll for stating a fact , but your opinion ( which is completley inaccurate and even a pacers fan will admit it ) makes you not? Must be a sour bobcats fan. Sorry about that. Sorry for being excited to have the best center in the east land on my team that has struggled since iverson left. Ill try to tone it down so that im not trolling. And please , continue to act like every player in the league hasnt gotten hurt.
