They are all really high it seems, though I guess it's fine since there isn't much separating them all.. I used to hate when 2K would have rookies at like an 80, with someone not much worse than them at a 68 or something.

It depends, it seems way too high for rookies but the problem I have always had with ratings is that almost all rookies end up being stars in the high 80s begin 90s after a few years. For me, they should only increase or decrease slightly in the first 2/3 seasons and then make or break it. So either stay pretty much the same, decline a few points a year, rise a few a year depending on several factors like playing time, role etc.

They're higher than I was expecting if these numbers are true. But you have to keep in mind that this year's draft was one of the most highly anticipated drafts in recent years as opposed to the 2013 draft which a lot of people considered a weak draft. So it's no surprise to see that most of them are rated as high as MCW and Oladipo who had the highest ratings as rookies last year.

On a side note, I always find it funny how rookies rate themselves (I'm looking at you Randle!) but most of them were pretty realistic about it this time around. And at Jabari. At least he knows what do if he doesn't like his rating.

With every rating released you can sense Beds all over them. Maybe it's only me

That is not bad though. He is a legit 6-6 and can actually score off the dribble, iso. Probably the second best shooter in the draft.

Where's James Ennis?

Edit: nvm, it's not all rookies.

I think they did a really good job especially since this is considered the deepest draft in years. I like Kyle Anderson's rating (67) since he's a tweener (SF or PF) and is said to be very unathletic. His passing, ball handling and basketball IQ probably save his rating from being lower, IMO.

I'm surprised that Jabari Parker is the best "overall" rookie. And I wonder what Joel Embiid was rated?

Wonder what Joel Embiid's rating will be. I know he's hurt, but that didn't stop Noel from being in the 70s (IIRC)
 
# 14 ojandpizza @ 09/05/14 01:50 PM
Kinda surprised LaVine is so high TBH, athleticism must play a large role in a players overall.

Seeing that PJ will be mainly offensive I don't see any problem with that rating. I would like to see Vonleh's rating. I'm guessing a 74.

I think Jabari is the best from these select few. Maybe Embiid is 79 but that'd be probably too much. I expect him to be 76-77.

Goodbye Chalmers!
Welcome Nappier - 74

I thought Embiid would be the top rookie too. Maybe a durability rating brings him down. That is the only thing.

If McBuckets is a 75 then I see the Bulls being a very nasty team. Jimmy Butler has to be a 81-83.

To be honest I thought it would be higher. His awareness off and def will be low and not that great on defense.

Vert 99, speed, 90+ agility high dunk 99
