  1. Westbrick nearly in the 70’s (for good reason). Crazy times we’re living in.
    Surprised THT took a ratings dip considering he was key to that small win streak for these trash Lakers.

    Yeah .... My disappointment has been in teams like the Lakers. They clearly aren't a tier one team. A team like Memphis should be up there.

    Ok but what about lots of players having a 99 drive to the basket and low rating midrange tendencies
    Hey 2k roster maker make this make sense
    Yeah, I don't play the CPU that often. But I started this month for the first time in a long time. I see why people complain about this. I'm coming from place of not knowing. I realize playing against KD, Booker, CP3 and **** even MJ. If I have them a mid range they never pulled up.
    But my guess is if the lane is open they should drive right? So they don't want the CPU to miss out easy buckets. I remember a few years ago that was a problem where the CPU wouldn't drive an open lane.
    I know COVID is a problem. But I'd like to see more consistency with Injured players. Alex Caruso still on the Bulls. They finally took AD off the Lakers. Not even mentioning Klay was put in the Warriors waaaaaay too early.
    The 2k roster guy in charge really lacking in updating players gear like 90% of the gear is either outlasted or in correct what does he do most of time ? They use to be on top of this taking feedback from threads do we even have an accessory thread anymore? I might make one

    There is a thread already on that topic. While I agree this is the worst I've seen. There has to be a reason why they aren't updating it. The fact that Chris Paul still has a headband is ****ing NUTS.

    Wow now as I think about it he worst than the 2k insider from back in the day
    Haha I don't think it's that bad lol.
    killu4what
    CP3 doesn't have a head band in my game.
    Are you playing with offline rosters? I'm talking from a online point of view.
    There are a number of mistakes currently with accessories. Out of the box.

    Middleton still a 84? My gosh... He is playing up to his best last 2-3 weeks...
    I'm still a firm believer in not looking at the overall. I've played vs him a few times. He don't miss . So what exact rating would you boost?
    For example, I think Anfernee Simons still needs a boost. He's been playing pretty. Both guys shooting and finishing needs work badly.
    Pistons finally got some boost to a few players

    I mean at least we see some rating changes on a regular basis. Back with the "2k insider" we had Lance Stephenson starting for the Pacers for months and still being a 59 ovr player.

    EXACTLY! The part that was really stupid. They said the Theinsider was going training camp to training camp to evaluate every player. Which obviously was BS. Like the above said for months players wouldn't change ratings. Community rosters are still the best. But back then it was the only thing . Playing online SUCKED. Lance could not make anyone dance .

    For example, I think Anfernee Simons still needs a boost. He's been playing pretty. Both guys shooting and finishing needs work badly.

    I think Middy could have a lift in shooting, playmaking and defense attributes... specially if you compare with others... he is a real special player in the Champions but not well "treated" by 2k rating system, he started the season slow-footed ok, but so did others and they were not downgraded the same way, in any case recently he is up to his standard so general rating should reflect that.
    By the way I completely agree with you regarding Anfernee. Another player that I always think is way too underrated by 2k is Jae Crowder, he should be elite on defense, and he is just OK looking at ratings and bagdes... Playing for the best team of the season so far (according to the standings at least) doesn't count too much and it should...
    Cheers! ;-)
    I do agree that the actual rating doesn't matter. I will never understand how people will argue a player being 84 when 'they are clearly an 87'. What does that actually mean? I think they do a decent job at catching the essence of most players.

    I do also agree with that point of view but in any case, general rating is still an overall measure and should reflect a little bit better the 'status' of any player in the league...
    I am not going to start discussing individual ratings or badges as that would be a little bit crazy (and always very subjective) but for instance, to see that 2 interior guys like Giannis and Kawhi are the two best perimeter defenders according to NBA2k (Perimeter defense and Lateral quickness) is an insult to intelligence in my view, and I can't forget that Klay Thompson, after two years and a half out of the court is still up there...
    TBH I would expect a little bit more from the guys doing the ratings...

    Agree with Jae Crowder! I was complaining about Bridges on the same team about a month ago. Like how was his perimeter defense 82? How?! Yes he has several gold defense badges. But that's pretty low.

    They definitely do a good job of capturing a players essence. But there are times when players like the above get overlooked.

    But from what it seems like a analytical viewpoint and a general/casual fan view point is taken into consideration.
    An example are the Detroit Pistons. Now are they a bad NBA team yes. But on any given night they should be able to beat an NBA team. But they make them so bad. You have very little to no chance to beat the Bucks .

    Nick Richards is a 76.

    This is one of those situations where I'm in favor of the change. There are so many players like this.

    And I get it. You look at the stats. And your like this dude does nothing, why?. But if you watched him play. He's pretty athletic shot blocker.

    It means the player should be in a higher tier.

    Nick Richards (9 MPG) has a higher rating than most starting SGs.

    If someone wants to defend a 9 MPG third string being rated equal / over all these players (most of whom are 20+ MPG Starters / 6th Men), they might as well join the schlubs on the 2K Roster team, because it means they have as little functional understanding of the OVR as they do.

    Rashid this has been your problem for years. It's the low blows. You didn't need that last part. You build your argument well. But when you end it like that. It just hurts.
    But I have no problem with the way Nick Richards is rated, it's like what we were saying before. A lot of those players you listed need individual rating boost. Now why he got the boost I have no clue.
    There is clearly some favoritism to certain teams and players.

    Sorry if this hurts. My suggestion would be to not defend it, so that it doesn't apply to you.
    Richards is far from the only center rated way too high. The formula & scaling is busted if Dwight Howard, DeAndre Jordan, Enes Kanter, etc etc etc are rated even higher and barely play.
    "Not having a problem with it" is an endorsement.

    I think you missed the point about the hurt point
    I've been meaning to ask you for a minute now. What do you think about Cade Cunningham ratings?
    Ja Morant speed needs a boost. He's currently 92. Probably should be in the 95-97
    On another note on speed. Brandon Ingram is basically the same player he was when he went to the All star game. He's only 24 years old. But for some reason he's speed 74, acc 74, speed with ball 70. Driving layup is 80.
    This has been a big problem for me this year. It's the way these low teams are rated. You really have no chance very the lower time. Because people look at a stat and judge a players rating on that fact only.
    Player like Caris LeVert how the hell do you rate a guy like that? It's not like he's playing bad. But he's been pretty damn good the last month. But again he gets no love.

    And finally injuries. What is going on here? I know we're in a weird place with COVID. I can definitely let players with COVID slide. But actually injuries. I know for years we've let ankle injuries slide because a player could come back the next day. Alex Caruso has been on the roster, Zach LaVine is going out for a while now. I'm not even getting into Klay Thompson being placed on the roster waaaaaaaay before he actually returned. But as soon as KD got hurt 2-3 days later he was removed from the roster. Now could we get some clear rules here. Or what's the point? Just release the injuries if we're not going to do this right.
    Just to add to the above. How in the world did the Nets lose KD. Drop all the way to the 3rd tier. But the Lakers lose AD. But are still in the first tier. How is that possible?

    Because the NBA and its affiliates have an agenda to artificially inflate the “King” James effect. Just look at the lakers schedule this year. They’re the only team who’ve currently played EIGHT more home games than they have played road games. And all their games have been the last games of the day. They’ve been gifted the easiest schedule in the league by far, massive home court schedule advantage to start the year so the lakers could get off to a hot start so the league can market then as a finals story to create a “superteam vs superteam” arc to get the league out of a historically low finals ratings rut.
    Yet Lakers are tied with a clippers team at 8th who are without their only two stars (same clippers who beat the lakers with 2 former MVP’s and multiple HoF’s on court) and Nets can’t get all their stars on the court at the same time.
    Moral of the story: Big name/big market/marketable teams will always have artificial favoring. Seems these days lakers are absorbing all of that effect.
    Separately it’s crazy to me that the nets fans cheer for other teams more than they do their own team at home. Almost as if fans prefer to watch and root for built, not bought, teams.
    So Kuminga has been getting more minutes and playing well but loses a point overall? Somebody doesn't watch games.

    What about the current best team in the NBA Phoenix Suns, don't they deserve some boosts? as you know I am specially piss off with how underrated Jae Crowder is in this game, mainly considering his defensive power...
    What about Klay Thompson... I hope we will see a good cut in the next week update (But I am not confident that will happen... LOL).

    He just started playing well. So he probably didn’t make the cut off.

    I’ve been trying to stay from this thought process. But the Lakers have been bad for a while now. Like 3 months

    Oh I’ve been complaining sir. Since the season started. They have shown both crowder and bridges no love. Only badges. How Bridges only a 82 perimeter defense? That’s what Crowders rating should be lol. Bridges needs an 87-90 rating.
    It goes without saying but IRL Standings have no effect on a video game tier system given that the same variables don't exist
    The Lakers being in Tier 1 is likely an oversight / lack of understanding how much Westbrook has declined this season. Lakers w/o AD are technically a two-star team (with one of them being a top 5 player).
    I am not familiar with their tier rankings to comment on their accuracy (and assume it's forced to be 10-10-10, which is always going to create weird cutoffs). As with most things 2K they are probably 80% accurate / ball park, but expectations for every facet of the game are sky high.
    Klay is an interesting case because for 3 years without playing he kept his same OVR rating. Now that he’s back, currently he’s looking more like an 80-82 OVR. Also remains to be seen if Kyrie can maintain his high OVR in between flat earth meetings.
    A lot of players' Speed/Speed With Ball/Acceleration ratings are way off this year.
    I put together a list of players (See attachment) who really stand out for being rated way too low or too high in any of the 3 categories.

    I'm pretty sure Speed ratings are heinous only when you are actually evaluating the attribute for what it is supposed to represent
    Most stars have high or overrated speed because that's the only way they can maintain an edge over the plebs within the gameplay engine. The gameplay isn't good enough where a slower half-court styled player will be able to dominate w/ skill or strength w/o blowing past their man.
    A player like Terence Davis becomes a star (or way better than he should be) if you gave him 90 Speed. Think like Andrew Wiggins level or something. The solution here is likely giving him something like "Downhill" which only triggers in the specific situation showcased.
    There's no reason guards should have speed/acceleration in the '50s while some bigs are high 70's or even in the '80s.
    No way should you ever see Justin Holiday with a 53 speed & 50 Speed with Ball but Keon Johnson has a 97 Speed/ACC there's definitely more going on there such as just plain dropping the ball in those 3 categories with regards to a ton of players.
    It actually hurts gameplay if you try to drive with Holiday as he will never beat his defender with speed that low. Bumping his speed with ball +20 is perfectly appropriate for his game while maintaining a healthy gameplay balance. There are a ton of others as you'll see on the list that are rated very low (Guards) while some bigs or wings are extremely fast vs what they should be. Many PG's are in low 70's or even high 60's in speed which is ridiculous.
    In regards to the Lakers, how is it that LeBron still has a headband equipped in the game although he hasn’t worn one in months?!
    I feel like the accessories department has been lacking and takes away from the look and feel authenticity that is usually there in past years.

    Couldn't have said it any better!! The Chris Paul headband thing doesn't make any sense to me. Has he ever worn a headband? I'm sure I'm wrong. But I don't remember him ever wearing one on the Suns

    Priorities bruh, 2k doesn’t see the need to keep them updated, everyone is playing the other modes, people don’t care if Chris Paul has a headband.
