Hey kids, you too can get your favorite player boosted really high! Just beg the 2K Insider, beg beg beg, and he will give you what you ask for. Bombard his blog with stuff about your favorite players! Tell him Shaun Livingston has a load of potential and is a great player. Get 50 of your friends to do it. Wait for the next roster update. This is pretty much the methodology 2K is using right now.
Today's article is about Jerryd Bayless, whom I noticed jumped 2 overall points (despite being overrated to begin with).
Bayless posted TERRIBLE shooting numbers in his rookie season.
69-189 (.365) from the field
9-41 (.219) from mid-range
7-27 (.259) from three
During preseason Bayless has shot .400 from the field and missed all seven of his 3pt attempts. It's just preseason, but where is the improvement?
Additionally, his A/T ratio is terrible and it looks like he may never "get it" as a point guard.
So that the Insider gave Bayless a 2 point boost was curious to me, considering I gave him a 1 pt deduction (marking a 3 pt difference between us).
Here's a list of Bayless' changes by the 2K Insider
Unbelievable. Bayless shot 9-41 from mid-range yet he gets boosted from 51 to 72. Much maligned Rajon Rondo shot 51-117 (.435) yet was bounced to a 66 mid.
