  1. Knew Harden got the 95, why are they hiding him tho?
    List looks good overall, might have a couple players a few ticks off
    Why did Wade get downgraded, again.. :jpshakehe
    I really hope 2k didn't feel the pressure to tweak certain guy's ratings, after a little community backlash. They weren't that bad to begin with. Some fans just gotta accept the fact that 2k isn't perfect...and neither is their favorite player

    Isn't Harden the coverboy for NBA Live? so it doesn't surprise me we dont have a screen of him

    They could've at least given us a new screen of Klay Thompson or something lol kinda lazy of them to recycle an old screen of Derozan. But not a huge deal though

    Ain't no point in even revealing player ratings, if they just gone tweak them a few weeks before the game launches

    I get your point but, much like other aspects of the game, I'm sure they are constantly adjusting and tweaking ratings before launch, just like how we have noticed player faces change over the course of the last couple weeks. We all know these ratings aren't set in stone which is why I find it amusing how controversial ratings are each year. The overalls are going to change regardless what does it matter if it happens now and then again once the season starts?

    Y'all trip on overalls WAY too much lol

    Every year man! Some people take it personal as if they are the ones being rated and graded. I just think it's a lot of fuss over nothing. The ratings will fluctuate throughout the season anyway and if people are really unsatisfied they can change the ratings themselves or wait for someone to release their own modified roster (which will likely drop within a week of release if not days after).
    I also stand by waiting until we see the full ratings for players. Seeing 82 next to Wade doesn't tell me what areas he might be underrated. The overalls might make more sense one we see their full attributes and understand how the ratings are weighted
    Yeah...THAT Guy
    Maybe I'm just biased, but I feel like Middleton is underrated here.

    He is, solid 3 and D guy, I know he wasn't as good after coming back, but he was still pretty good.
    I don't understand why CJ gets an 86 while BB gets an 87, but then again - Jokic got an 88 after Nurkic killed his team last March and sent'em to an early vacay, so I guess it fits the pattern.

    Can't wait to see the breakdown of Harden's ratings . I've always felt like he did some things to well in the game . Especially dunking wise.

    Or defense, he is a horrible defender. To have a 95 he must be maxed at every offensive category or they gave way better defensive ratings than he deserves.

    Yes, because one game should determine overall ratings.
    You guys are saying that ratings at the beginig of the season are not relevant cause they will be adjusted during the season. But players will be bumped higher or dropped lower based on where they stand now, so their rating at launch kinda matters.

    Middleton is better than Bradley, Wade and Booker for sure. Booker is def rated too high too.

    Nah bruh, Beal is more athletic, has a higher true shooting percentage, and is somewhat better on defense

    Nah bruh, Beal is more athletic, has a higher true shooting percentage, and is somewhat better on defense

    Middleton is very underrated and statistically a far superior defender than beal.
    However, I agree he def shouldn't be rated higher than Beal, Beal is better but I'm also pretty sure the guy was talking about Avery bradley.
    Demar derozan being an 89 is a complete utter joke. The guy can't shoot and is below average on defense. All he has going for him is volume, and volume is a tendency not a rating.
    Devin Booker is also a complete joke, funny to see they lowered it since his initial rating announcement though. Ya, he could be that rating by the end of the season maybe.. or maybe even half way through who knows, but based on right now he's more like a 79.

    Why would they lower Jokic's rating because of one game? Literally makes no sense.
    Jokic is well deserving of an 88.

    Nah bruh, Beal is more athletic, has a higher true shooting percentage, and is somewhat better on defense

    Bradley Beal is one of the worst defensive players in the NBA at his position. Saying he is somehow better than Khris on defense is an atrocity against mankind.
    That said, he is overall the better player.

    5th highest scorer in the league + an All-NBA team selection is good enough for an 89.

    Players get rating boosts based off of all nba selections? lol. And here I thought they were supposed to be objective.
    Shot 26% from 3, 55% true shooting, 110 defensive rating, barely even had a positive BPM. Like I said, all he has for him is volume, taking 21 2pt shots a game for 27 points, not good.

    What "ratings boost"? Lol
    The All-NBA selection shows he's regarded as one of the better players in the NBA league-wide. If you want to clutch on to several obscure stats to try and prove otherwise then be my guest lol.

    obscure stats, lol. I listed some of the most mainstream stats available to gauge a players worth.
    Also he's rated higher than Lowry, no? What is 2k smoking if they think derozan is the best player on Toronto.

    2K isn't looking at all those stats man lol. If they were, Lowry would be in the Irving/Wall tier of players. They go off raw stats and the buzz the player is getting around the league. DeRozan is the flashier guy who puts up more points so he'll always be rated higher than Lowry.

    Wow, didn't realized we're on youtube comment section...

    Prime wade is a force. Easily a top 5 SG of all time.
    Current Wade is straight garbage, he's not even trying anymore. He was an atrocity on Chicago. If he gets bought out and goes to play for a team and cares again maybe he can deserve an 80+ rating but not right now.

    Yup he had one of his worse offensive seasons and doesn't even try on defense anymore . Now add that he's about to be 36 next Jan I'll be surprise if he has a better season that last. Just being realistic as a guy who watched all 82 plus playoffs

    Wade stinks

    Avg almost 20 ppg definitely doesnt stink neither does having a slight decrease in stats. Also if we're talking about slacker on defense lots of players fit that description.
    Was the most efficient SG in the league for years and still amongst the top.
    He's still the most clutch SG in the league. Not afraid of the big moments.
    He still blocks shots and plays passing lanes better than any other guard in the league.
    None of those young guys are actually that much better all around.

    In my opinion Lowry is easily on Wall tier last year, and both are better than Kyrie. Now of course Kyrie's youth and potential is a much better building block but Lowry is perennially disrespected both by 2k and fans alike.
    He's easily the best player on Toronto and the one that makes the team tick. Like you said, if we look at his stats; it's hard to place very many PG's above him. Only a couple, really. For whatever reason he always sucks when it comes to the playoffs though, I really don't understand it. I'm blaming Casey though, their offensive schemes get shut down and he doesn't adjust.

    I'm not a fan of calling good players "garbage", especially a guy who's almost 36 years old, playing in a broken offense system, averaging 19/4/4 in 29 minutes per game. He's not 2006 Flash anymore but c'mon, show some respeck

    As a Bulls fan I say he stinks , stats can very blind . I watch him play all season long. Wade doesn't stink in the literal since of worse in the NBA but people are overreacting to his rating. He's tailing off he's a fringe top 10 SG right now whose going to be 36 with knee issues.
    His had a TS% of 50% with a usage rate higher than Butlers when he shouldn't have had in the first place.
    Wade still solid I guess in terms of offense but defensively he only plays it when he wants and he refuses to get back on defense . He will complain about no calls while the other team running back to the other side of the court countless times .

    Stop looking at just raw stats. His efficiency was beyond awful. All he did was jack up mid range shots all game long. His defense was subpar. He also came off as cancerous in the locker room. There's a reason the vast majority of Chicago fans want his *** out of town.
    I'd much rather have an efficient 3+D guy putting up 15-17 points a game (Like Khris) playing a good style of team basketball, shooting and scoring efficiently, than having 36 year old Dwade iso jacking up mid range shots all game long to collect his 18 points in a loss.
    Is he "garbage"? I don't know, the word is subjective. He's certainly not a top 10 SG anymore and he brings a ton of negative attributes to his game right now. Like I said, he's not even trying. He went to Chicago to collect a paycheck, and bless him he deserves it.

    I swear it's not like nobody watched Wade last season or his disappearing act in the playoffs when we were suppose to get the grand master " Playoff Wade".
    Wade can be a solid role player but he was trying to be WADE last year and that's clearly not who he is anymore .

    Discussing/reading discussions on 2k ratings has opened me up to a new world of basketball I never knew existed. I saw dozens of people whining about Derrick Rose rating when it was released, talking about how great he played and talking about the 17 PPG he put up. Saying he should be an 85+. It's virtually the same scenario with Wade.
    Casual fans truly do see the game in a completely different light than I do.

    Yea as Rose fan from the city of Chicago I have no problem with his rating it reflects what he truly is right now sadly . He's just a scoring threat that doesn't offer shooting or defense , his playmaking went from solid to one of what a SG would put up. He would be a dope 6th man at this point of his career but asking more of him is long gone.

    I've watched at least half of bulls games this year and I just can't agree with that. 44% FG and 31% 3PT is far from awful.
    All he did was jack up mid range shots all game long. His defense was subpar.

    Since he's almost 36 now it's obvious that he won't be doing this on a nightly basis, but he showed even this season that he can still be a great defender, locking SG's like Derozan

    Well it was a mistake putting Wade, Rondo and Buttler in the same backcourt, unfortunately there is plenty wrong with bulls organization right now...

    First of all, c'mon man, no one is whining. I'm expressing my opinion and your expressing yours, we're discussing. Also calling someone "casual" fan based on a fact they have a different opinion on how one player performed last year seems harsh :duck:

    http://www.espn.com/nba/statistics/player/_/stat/3-points/sort/threePointFieldGoalPct/qualified/false/position/shooting-guards/order/false
    He came in 91st out of 123 from 3pt% out of all shooting guards in the NBA last year.
    He was 71st out of 79 for SG's who attempted over 100 3's on the season.
    That's "not bad" to you?

    Yeah, everyone know that Wade always been poor 3pt shooter but 31% that he shoot last year was second best mark of his career (15% two seasons ago) so I'm giving the man credit for trying to adapt his game as he gets older :wink:

    You sound like a bitter Bulls fan honestly. When Jimmy played like crap, who won them games or kept them in them? Definitely not those other guys.
    He isn't the same player he used to be, but saying all he did was shot mid range all game is garbage.
    He wasn't super energetic on defense 100% of the time, but when he was it came when they needed it.
    The team sucked and it affected him and Jimmy.

    Man, Booker is not a top 10 guard...sheesh.
    For perspective, D'Angelo Russell had a higher PER, more rebounds and assists per game (in 12 less minutes per game), same fg% and 3p%, less turnovers, higher ORPM, higher DRPM, higher VORP...yet because of "perception...
    Booker is already treated like a star player yet he's just a gunner that gives you nothing else, but since Phoenix is so whack he has no accountability being a golden child (whereas Luke Walton would have benched him the second he ball stopped and broke the play to chuck a shot while not swinging it to the open man).
