Overall 89 (+4)
A higher rating than Steve Nash. Yes, that Steve Nash.
Med 85 (+2)
Deserved at moment.
3pt 81 (+11)
Rose is attemping one three pointer per game. He plays almost 40 minutes per game. He is 7 for 20 on the season. With an 81 rating you can bet cats will hit 2-3 threes per game with him.
Handle 99 (+3)
Is Rose's handle REALLY perfect? Nash/Iversonesque? Really? What was wrong with a 96? Didn't pump his overall rating high enough?
Then again, after he did this to Andre Miller
I guess people were calling for it.
Pass 83 (+2)
Deserved at moment.
Block 64 (+10)
Huh? Rose has 4 blocks in 19 games. Why does he suddenly deserve a higher rating than Gerald Wallace, Rashard Lewis, etc? He doesn't even deserve the 54 he had at default, much less a 10 point boost.
Speed 99 (+3)
Whatever, I guess people want to cheese with him that bad. I highly doubt he's the fastest dude in the league.
OffAwr 89 (+7)
Rose is averaging 19 points and 6 assists. Those aren't all-star numbers. Those are Steve Francis numbers. Taking into account his team is 5th in pace factor, they are a bit inflated. That 89 gives him an awareness rating equal to that of Chauncey Billups - a player who averaged 17 and 7 for the slowest team in the league last season. Billups also did this in 32 minutes, not 38. If Rose were really deserving of an 89 OffAwr, I somehow doubt the Bulls would be 24th in Offensive Efficiency. Just a hunch.
Vertical 99 (+1)
Off Dribble 81 (+2)
In Traffic 87 (+5)
Quickness 99 (+1)
It always boggles my mind that this guy has time to do a meaningless one point boost to an attribute nobody cares about, meanwhile Tony Battie has badly needed his shot ratings fixed since 2k3, and nuthin. Obviously he must have pissed someone off if he can't even get a 5 point boost to his 52 close whereas Rose is getting daily updates it seems.
Shot Tend 74 (+5)
3pt Tend 38 (+16)
Dunk Tend 78 (+8)
As pointed out above, Rose plays most of the game and only attempts 1 three per game.
4% of Rose's shots are dunks. Obviously he should be dunking as much as centers right?
(Dude has a higher dunk rating than Tyrus Thomas also, but that was covered in a previous blog).
Rose has dunked 8 times in 19 games. He is 81st in the league in total dunks. He ranks 2nd among PGs in dunks (Russell Westbrook leads with 13) and is only 10th among all guards.
6. Wade 32
7. R. Brewer 31
16. A. Iguodala 22
26. K. Bryant 18
45. Westbrook 13
81. D. Rose 8
Somehow, that equals a 92 dunk rating and a 78 tendency.
