Team Ratings

Here are my current team ratings (Please avoid complaining when they are not a finished product).

The teams are ranked by "TTO" and not Overall. "TTR" is something I came up with as an alternative to Overall rating, as team overall ratings are very fickle and some teams have boosters to make the team appear better than the actual sum of it's parts (2K9 example: Boston Celtics. 2k8's inflatee was the Spurs. Must be a ring thing).

Playoff teams in bold.

EAST
Celtics 80 Offense, 94 Defense, 92 Overall (87.0)
Magic 77 Offense, 81 Defense, 78 Overall (79.0)
76ers 66 Offense, 85 Defense, 68 Overall (75.5)
Pistons 64 Offense, 83 Defense, 81 Overall (73.5)
Hawks 73 Offense, 74 Defense, 73 Overall (73.5)
Raptors 78 Offense, 66 Defense, 77 Overall (72.0)
Cavaliers 59 Offense, 83 Defense, 80 Overall (71.0)
Bobcats 67 Offense, 75 Defense, 71 Overall (71.0)

Bulls 61 Offense, 76 Defense, 74 Overall (69.0)
Bucks 74 Offense, 64 Defense, 68 Overall (69.0)
Heat 64 Offense, 75 Defense, 67 Overall (68.0)
Pacers 67 Offense, 61 Defense, 66 Overall (64.0)
Knicks 68 Offense, 60 Defense, 64 Overall (64.0)
Wizards 68 Offense, 59 Defense, 67 Overall (63.5)
Nets 55 Offense, 66 Defense, 60 Overall (60.5)

WEST
Lakers 85 Offense, 88 Defense, 88 Overall (86.5)
Suns 95 Offense, 77 Defense, 87 Overall (86.0)
Rockets 81 Offense, 86 Defense, 85 Overall (83.5)
Hornets 78 Offense, 81 Defense, 80 Overall (79.5)
Spurs 65 Offense, 92 Defense, 84 Overall (78.5)
Jazz 78 Offense, 77 Defense, 77 Overall (77.5)
Mavericks 74 Offense, 76 Defense, 74 Overall (75.0)
Blazers 69 Offense, 76 Defense, 70 Overall (72.5)

Nuggets 75 Offense, 69 Defense, 74 Overall (72.0)
Clippers 65 Offense, 78 Defense, 77 Overall (71.5)
T’Wolves 77 Offense, 61 Defense, 63 Overall (69.0)
Warriors 65 Offense, 63 Defense, 64 Overall (64.0)
Grizzlies 59 Offense, 64 Defense, 61 Overall (61.5)
Kings 64 Offense, 58 Defense, 61 Overall (61.0)
Thunder 55 Offense, 55 Defense, 55 Overall (55.0)

Once again there will be two non-playoff west teams that could make it if they played in the east.

Once Seattle has a team again the New Orleans Hornets will hopefully move out east where they belong where CP3 can give us some Conference parity.

Top 10 Offense
95 Suns
85 Lakers
81 Rockets
80 Celtics
78 Jazz
78 Hornets
78 Raptors
77 Magic
77 T'Wolves
75 Nuggets

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. 2k's team ratings never make sense as they always seem to grade on a curve and include the Legends teams into said curve. What happens is the Suns are 10 pts better offensively than the 2nd best team, which is absurd. There are only three 80+ offense teams, yet there are 8 teams with 80+ defense. Hell, there's a 75 offense team in the top 10, and on a 50-99 scale that's what we SHOULD be considering only average.

Top 10 Defense
94 Celtics
92 Spurs
88 Lakers
86 Rockets
85 76ers
83 Pistons
83 Cavaliers
81 Hornets
78 Clippers
77 Jazz

Top 10 TTO
87.0 Celtics
86.5 Lakers
84.0 Suns
83.5 Rockets
79.5 Hornets
79.0 Magic
78.5 Spurs
77.5 Jazz
75.5 76ers
75.0 Mavericks

Wow. Can someone please explain to me why the Nuggets are so low offensively? I mean, worse than the T'Wolves and Raptors??

I suppose they did only finish 2nd in Points per game last season.

I know that they "cherry pick" alot, but still...

Maybe the Raptors are rated higher because of Calderon's passing(?)

Man, the sooner you weave your magic on PS3, the happier I will be.

Other than Melo and Iverson the Nuggets are a bunch of role players. Anthony Carter is in the starting lineup, he brings their rating down. Nene and K-Mart aren't exactly offensive powerhouses either.

Minnesota has a great post scorer in Al Jefferson, and one of the league's premier shooters in Mike Miller. Love, Gomes, and Foye trump K-Mart, Nene, and Carter which makes up for the discrepancy between the team's stars.

Raptors are a great offensive team, aside from Bosh and Calderon, they have Jermaine O'Neal and some excellent shooters.

This is FFAACC:

1. It would be nice to see the new ratings of your already completed teams against the default ones and, have you tested them on association ? If so, how were the simmed stats ?

2. On the other hand, no coach profiles and teams offensive and defensive sets changed, so far ? Also, no sliders ?

Rashidi said...

1. I plan on that.

2. Not yet, it's a matter of sitting down with the coach profiles and comparing everything. I have some data from what I did last year and I'm guessing they didn't change too much from last year.

Also, changes from my recent editing.
Celtics 77 Offense, 95 Defense, 93 Overall (86.0)
Pacers 67 Offense, 61 Defense, 66 Overall (64.0)
