  1. For PNO did they update the raptors starting 5 because of the covid problems ?
    Did they inactivate VanVleet, OG etc etc or is it still just Siakam?
    Or is everyone back ?
    coolcras7
    Why did Kyrie go down a point?

    As with all 2K Overall Rating updates, it’s important to recognize that +1/-1s are mostly statistical fluctuation and can be traced to an increase/decrease in a player’s performance over the last two weeks. As an example, Tristan Thompson is on his 6th OVR change of the season (he has been a +1/-1 in every single roster update).

    Kyrie Irving in this roster cycle (2/14 to 3/4):
    26-5-6 (35 mpg)
    47-41-68 shooting
    The Previous Cycle (1/31 to 2/13):
    28-4-6 (36 mpg)
    52-38-97 shooting
    TLDR: He shot worse.

    Siakam is currently the only deactivated player.

    Siakam is currently the only deactivated player.

    Thank you sir.
    That means he won’t be back until late next week at least for PNO......Boucher it is !!!

    Don’t understand why Jimmy went down two points when he’s been absolutely killing it, not home to look at what dropped for him.

    Excellent observation. Butler's OVR is likely dropping because he didn't make the All-Star team, rather than anything related to his on-court play.
    Butler this cycle (2/15 - 3/4):
    23-8-9 (35 mpg)
    49-36-90 shooting
    Previous cycle (1/31 - 2/13)
    21-9-8 (35 mpg)
    43-27-81 shooting
    Butler's non-selection is among the league's biggest snubs (likely bc vote was split between he and Bam). It will look awful by season's end, as Butler is actually in the middle of a career season on the court (he's missed 14 games due to Covid/Injury).

    I think that “snub” is just because practically missed all of January which I’m ok with him and Bam missing the game to rest and relax with families. If anything, I would’ve expected to see his playmaking get a little bit of love.

    I'm not sure which specific attributes changed in this update, but Butler has an 86 Pass Vision which is representative of his Assist rate.
    His problematic attributes appear to be in categories that fall outside of 2K's weekly update cycles. Specifically, his 74 Foul Draw and 80 Hustle are bonafide laughable. He also has only 50 Intangibles, so they are intentionally suppressing his OVR beyond that.
    I'll provide a detailed breakdown on Butler once I get the Big Movers info & recording out of the way.

    Unbelievable, more than enough sample size too. He started with a 90 draw foul and dropped to 87 I believe was the last time I saw it. Wonder why the drop to 74?
    1/31-2/13: 11.3 FTA/game
    2/15-3/4: 7.4 FTA/game

    I have not been tracking attribute progression this year, but I believe he was a 60 out of box.
    Regardless, the only non-big that draws fouls at a comparable rate to Butler is James Harden.
    Fom Reddit:
    The disrespect 2k has for Beal is insane...

    This is a good observation.
    Beal from Jan 31st to Feb 13th (11 games):
    31-5-4 in 35 MPG
    44-31-91 Shooting
    Beal from Feb 14th to Mar 4th (11 games):
    33-6-5 in 37 MPG
    51-34-93 Shooting
    I would have assumed that Beal's 3pt shooting slumped, or that his assist rate dwindled w/ Westbrook back to his usual self. Neither of those is true.
    The Wizards also went 8-3 over this stretch.
    While Beal's OVR is suppressed a bit by his (heinous) defense, it's a failing in 2K's system that Beal somehow went DOWN a point here. They need to get away from the Spreadsheet and properly apply some contextual ratings/badges.
    78/PF (-1) Daniel Theis: Stretch Four (from 3-Level Scorer)
    is this some kind of Joke? when I think of Daniel theis i think Of him as a mobile, high energy defender that is somewhat capable of hitting shots. i dont think of him as a scorer, nor do i think of him as stretch for (doesnt He Play the 5?)

    Those archetypes largely only mean he has 80+ in the applicable shot ratings. Shot ratings aren't indicative of scoring ability.
    Theis won't ever have a "two-way" tag because his Post/Interior Defense rating will never be 85+
    A deep dive on Jimmy Butler, who some feel should have made the All-Star team, and has a case for being the most underrated star in NBA 2K21. Butler (25.4 PER, 8th in the NBA) has lead the Heat to an 18-18 record (6th in the East). He's only played 22 of a possible 36 games this season, but the Heat are 14-8 in those games (4-10 without him).
    Most of those missed games were due to Covid protocols rather than an actual injury. The condensed season also lead to an earlier All-Star game than usual, making those missed games a larger factor than they otherwise would have been. IMO all evidence suggests this snub will look foolish by season's end, as Butler might be contending for an All-NBA team. He is demonstrably the 3rd best SF in the NBA after Kawhi and LeBron (and ahead of Jayson Tatum, who made the All-Star team).
    Jimmy Butler
    94 OVERALL (+4)
    H/W/A: 6'7" / 230 / Age 31
    Position/Role: SF/PG (Starter)
    Archetype: 2-Way Slashing Playmaker

    OFFENSE
    85 Layup (-2) / 67-121 FG (55%), 42% Ast'd
    75 Fade (+3)
    55 Hook (+6)
    75 Post (-9) / 24th Percentile in 2020
    99 D.Foul (+25) / .581 FTR (this is a no-brainer)
    78 Close (-5) / 60-157 FG (38%)
    72 Mid (-11) / 10-34 FG (29%) - LOL? Overreaction to Reddit dummies. 28% last year.
    69 3pt (-3) / 8-34 (24%) - DeRozan w/o the Mid-Range game.
    86 FT (NC) / 158-183 (86%) - Combined w/ his Draw rate, where his offense comes from.
    90 Handle (+6) / 45% of Offense is On-Ball
    90 Vision (+4) / 40 AST% - Ranks 7th in NBA / LeBron tier
    90 PIQ (+2)
    95 Acc (+16) / 3.37 AT Ratio (this is ridiculously good for a Slashing SF)
    61 ORB (-1) / 7.2 ORB%
    45 S.Dunk (+5)
    75 D.Dunk (-5) / 13 dunks, 4.1% of FGA (down from 55 & 7.4%)
    99 SIQ (+19)
    99 Hands (+6)
    Butler elevated his playmaking this season to LeBron-like levels. His assist rate is more than double what it was two years ago. He doesn't turn the ball over. He gets to the line at a higher rate than prime LeBron & Harden.
    He isn't without flaws. Much like DeMar DeRozan, Butler's poor outside shooting forces a team to build around him offensively. Butler is very much the de facto PG on the Heat as a result.
    DEFENSE
    70 DRB (-1) / 18.0 DRB% (Career High)
    75 Interior (NC) - 82nd Percentile in 2020
    85 Perimeter (-5) - 55th Percentile in 2020
    47 Block (-4) / 1.2 BLK%
    85 Steal (-1) / 2.8 STL% - Ranks 2nd in NBA (Career High)
    90 Contest (+1)
    Butler is having the best rebounding season of his career, and has close to doubled his DRB rate from two years ago.
    ATHLETICISM
    90 Quickness (NC)
    85 Speed (+1)
    85 BallSpeed (+3)
    85 Acceleration (+2)
    85 Vertical (+7)
    75 Strength (+1) - 6'7" / 230
    95 Stamina (NC)
    99 Hustle (+19) - The roster team should be embarrassed.
    75 Durability (-5) - While no major injuries, has missed 15+ games in all but two seasons. 79% of Career games played, but only 75% in last 4 years.
    MENTAL
    85 Perception (-3)
    80 D.Con (-10) - 33rd among 86 PFs in DRPM
    95 Help (+6) - 92nd percentile in 2020
    95 O.Con (+15) - 4th among 86 SFs in ORPM
    85 P&R (-5) - 46th Percentile in 2020
    99 Intangibles (+49) - They are intentionally suppressing his OVR.
    95 Potential (+5)

    That's a lot of shooting badges & Golds for a non-shooter. 2K seems to be over-compensating after people complained about his Mid-Range rating during 2K21 release. I talked at length about his playmaking this season and his badges here are very lacking.

    What's up with the Jimmy Butler disrespect here?
    My roster stays true to Jimmy Buckets and pays little mind to the Heat having an average year. Still an elite two-way player. Shouldn't be rated only 1 point higher than Zion.
