TEAM RATINGS
Rating is average of Defense and Offense (2K's Overall proven to be inaccurate)

Rating, Team (Defense-Offense-Overall)

Please note that injuries are factored in, and that team rotations & player minutes matter just as much as the player ratings (if not more so). For instance, taking a mere two minutes away from Kobe Bryant and giving them to Derek Fisher will result in a 1 point reduction to the team's defensive rating (-0.5 overall). Taking Matt Barnes out of the rotation and giving all of his minutes to Luke Walton would result in a 3 point reduction to defense and a 1 point reduction to offense (-2.0 overall).

EASTERN CONFERENCE
89.5 Magic (90-89-88) (LU: -0.5)
88.0 Celtics (92-84-86) (LU: +5.0)
87.0 Heat (93-81-85) (LU: +0.5)

80.5 Bucks (90-71-80) (LU: +3.0)
79.0 Sixers (79-79-76) (LU: +1.0)
77.0 Bobcats (84-70-75) (LU: -0.5)

72.5 Raptors (71-74-70) (LU: -1.5)

your 3pts ratings are ridiculous

one exemple among others : does shannon brown still deserve an 88?

Anonymous said...

88 ? aouch

Brown deserves 82.

Celph said...

3 point shots are fine, they maybe could go down by 2 or 3 points in some spots, but not for most players. Reasons being

A. 88 3 Pointer =/= 88 Medium
If an 88 medium let's you hit 8/10 perfect release shots, an 88 from 3 might yield you 6 (wide open)

B. These are NBA players, the best basketball players in the world, leave them alone and they're hitting their shot. Having 80% of the league below an 80 from 3 is retarded if you're playing an association.

Also, Rashidi I was wondering if you'd share your formula's/Stat categories for each rating with me as I'm trying to design a draft class specifically to use with your rosters.

Rashidi said...

Brown 3pt dropped 5 points. He was 3-20 over his last 8 games which dropped his percentage.

Editing an entire league means these things don't get noticed right off the bat.

Rashidi said...

Submitted a quick update with revisions to Brown, D.Williams, Millsap, Kirilenko, Okur, LaMarcus Aldrige, and Brian Cardinal

Anonymous said...

Clippers got worse since the new year? They've been playing playoff level basketball since that time. Gordon is injured, but does that really drop the rating that much?

Lunatic Wolf said...

What did you edit on Deron Williams?

Rashidi said...

Of course Eric Gordon's absence hurts the Clippers.

C Jordan (70)
PF Griffin (86)
SF Gomes (70)
SG Foye (69)
PG Davis (75)
BENCH
SF Aminu (71)
PG Bledsoe (68)
SG Butler (67)
PF Diogu (66)

Aside from he and Griffin they are short on talent.

TGballin said...

Great work friend.

cant wait to check this out.

one question,
have you changed coach profiles for the bobcats since P.Silas came in they run also..
the pacers had coach turnover i havent seen them play to know if they have any change in philosophy.

hope all is well on the personal front

What is the med shot rating for Al Horford ?

This guy shoots at 59 percent from med ! (2.6-4.5).

It's better than Big Dirk.

ATL's own said...

Al Horford's mid range is like on an 85

onyxxx said...

hey rashidi, whats the status on a pc roster ? would love to finally play with your roster!

What did you edit on Deron Williams?

Lowered some defensive attributes.

Rashidi said...

have you changed coach profiles for the bobcats since P.Silas came in they run also..

This is actually not true. They ran for one game early in his tenure which got everyone excited, but otherwise they are still a slow paced team. The one thing they might need is a boost to fastbreak. I'm pretty sure I edited coach profiles right when the firing happened so I did change that.

Just some small nitpicking: I noticed Glen Davis has a relatively low SIT. Now I had thought that along with a somewhat reliable mid-range jumper and taking charges, finishing in traffic was one of Big Baby's only contributions on the court. Do his statistics contradict the reputation that most commentators have given him?

Hey Rashidi,
I was just wondering where you have Eyenga and Harris rated for cavs? I didn't see them on the player list anywhere. I know the Cavs are beyond pathetic but these two guys have been playing pretty well since they have gotten minutes (especially Harris). Thanks and your work is much appreciated!

Since you are done with all the regular teams, can you do all the old teams like the Bulls, Jazz, and etc.? That would really be great.

Rashidi said...

Eyenga is 64 and Harris is 63, but I have yet to properly edit either. That should come tomorrow. I made some tweaks, signed Pavlovic to Hornets, adjusted Magic/Hornet depth charts (injuries), and am about to submit another update.

2010 Davis
75 Inside
62 Close
62 Mid
80 SIT

2011 Davis
85 Inside
70 Close
75 Mid
64 SIT

Make no mistake, Davis is a better offensive player this season, as his shot ratings more than make up for the decreased SIT. The greatly improved shot ratings will still cause many of his contested shots to go in.

Average SIT by position
PG: 59
SG: 62
SF: 64
PF: 66
C: 72

Davis is -2 from the average starting PF which isn't too bad. At the end of the day he IS a backup and there aren't many teams he would start for.

Rashidi said...

I would like to do that, though I am technically still not finished. There are about 10 rotation players who still need edits. Off the top of my head they are...

Manny Harris, Christian Eyenga, Alonzo Gee, Eugene Jeter, Jeff Foster, Gary Neal, Martell Webster, Al Thornton, Trevor Booker, Yi Jianlian

There aren't too many Cavs & Wiz fans out there but for all intents and purposes there are more people using my roster for season games than there are using them for the retro teams (at the moment).

2K released a 2/3 roster which I am skimming over...

92 - Dwight Howard (+3) - FINALLY
90 - Carmelo Anthony (-3) - FINALLY

Also, I've been using your 1-13-11 roster but would like to update it a little to look more like your newer release. What major changes would you say you made since that release? Coach profiles, playbooks, etc? I would love to use this file but I've already edited all the shoes for the entire league on mine.

Increase the med shot of Rondo

he is 48-107 (.45 !) since the beginning of season, career best !

Deserves 80.

rondo edit only if it is possible to perfectly match his shot selection, he rarly takes shots at all, 107 attempts midway through the season is very rare.

rashidi - you didn't answer my question so i try again:
i really hope you will still put out a roster on PC as work on it was mentioned couple months ago. over at http://forums.nba-live.com there are many dedicated ppl that surely would offer to help you out on this incredibly deep project!

Rare ?

Rondo takes 2.9 med shot / game this year like a Paul Pierce, Paul Ridour, Brandon Jennings or Ray Allen !

Rondo med shot:
2007: 0.3-1.1 (.27)
2008: 1.2-2.7 (.43)
2009: 0.8-1.9 (.40)
2010: 0.7-2.3 (.33) terrible
2011: 1.3-2.9 (.45)

The difference with 2008 is the assistance: in 2008 60 percent of his med shoot was assited but this only 40% of this is assisted this year !

Rondo really improve in this category this year.

That's mainly because those players take significantly more threes than Rondo. He is only taking around 3 jumpers per game despite being a guard leading the team in minutes.

I'll look into it and find a suitable rating.

u have to type in all your data anyways, so i don't know who said it has to be in excel cuz it won't influence that progress as far as i know - MAYBE it speeds up the workflow but i'm not sure.

even if it would be the case, reditor lets you edit data 10 times faster then ingame like you are used to it on console. as i mentioned earlier i'm sure there would be enough helpers in the pc community that is aching for good rosters.

so please let me try to understand your troubles with the pc version, because i don't see any. if there are they are minor and can be easily solved.
if you just don't want to pls just say that, no one will rip your head off.

sometimes you guys exclusively on consoles are acting like a computer is an unsolved mystery while it has anything to offer you can imagine ;)

Rashidi, I don't have a twitter, but I noticed some of your tweets about Derrick Rose.

The MVP is awarded to the most VALUABLE player, not the best player, and not the most efficient player. Without Joakim Noah since December 15th and after missing Carlos Boozer for a little over a month, the Bulls are sitting at 34-14. Coach Thibs is also starting Keith Fucking Bogans.

You're just like Hollinger; you just look at PER and determine that the highest PER= MVP. You fail to take into account what Derrick Rose has to do on a given night. You fail to take into account that Rose has so many shot attempts because he has too. Who else should be taking those shots? Keith Bogans?

Until the Celtics @Bulls game on January 8th, Rose was averaging only 5.4 FTA in 34 games, and since that game is averaging 8 FTA in 13 games bringing his season average to 6.2. This has undoubtedly improved his TS%. However, we all know refs choose favorites or reputation when it comes to calling fouls. It must be nice to be LeBron (9.1 FTA, 9.0 for his career) and Wade (9.2 FTA, and for his career) to get fouls called based on their reps as guys who attack the rim.

Rose averages 5.5 shots at the rim, LeBron 5.1 and Wade 6.6. Yet Rose averages 3 FTA less than LeBron and Wade.

I don't think there's any doubt that LeBron is the best player in the league, but the MVP is not about being the best, or being the most efficient. If that were the case, Steve Nash never would have won MVP, Kobe would have more than 1, and Jordan would have won every single year he was in the league.

The Heat have a better record, started Carlos Arroyo much of the year, while also giving heavy minutes to Joel Anthony, Mario Chalmers, James Jones, Juwan Howard, and the corpse of Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller may not be Boozer/Noah, but they are important pieces, the leaders of the bench, and unlike Chicago, Miami does not have much depth behind them.

The Bulls had a guy named Taj Gibson waiting behind Boozer. Kurt Thomas hadn't even seen the court before Noah's injury, that's how deep the Bulls are.

Anonymous said...

The Bulls are deep in the front court, yes. Just as Miami is deep in the back court.

Rashidi said...

Miami went 10-8 in November as they worked the kinks out - they had a tough early schedule and in case it was forgotten, Wade missed the entire pre-season.

Since then the Heat have gone 26-6, including a 21-1 stretch where their only loss was to Dallas by 2 points.

Four of those losses came in a recent losing streak, two of which were games LeBron missed. You might recall that the Bulls were only able to beat a LeBron-less Heat team by 3 points.

I mentioned Miami's schedule, and for good reason. They have had the toughest one in the league, and it's about to get much lighter. In their next 32 games...

2x Spurs
2x Celtics
2x Bulls
2x Hawks
1x Magic
1x Lakers
1x Thunder
1x Nuggets

Only 12 of their next 32 games are against actual competition. Only 5 of those games are on the road (Celtics, Bulls, Spurs, Hawks twice). Miami finishing the year with another 26-6 stretch is a very realistic expectation (which would make them 52-12 post-November).

And make no mistake, LeBron is the primary reason for that dominance.

Rashidi said...

Bulls on the other hand...

3x Hawks
2x Heat
2x Magic
2x Jazz
2x Hornets
1x Celtics
1x Spurs

13 of their last 34 games come against competitive teams. Trouble is, 7 of them come on the road, and the Bulls only have 14 home games in their final 34.

They are 23-4 at home but only 11-10 on the road.

In case you were curious, Miami is 18-5 at home and 18-9 on the road. The Bulls are set to falter down the stretch, which will end Rose MVP talk the same way it ended for Amare Stoudemire once the schedule got difficult.

onyxxx said...

as much as rose improved this year everything should go in the direction of james being mvp - sorry.

he took over the miami team in the second he took step in south beach.
the recent 2months are prove of that.
the games without james were a catastrophy and every minute he isn't on the court they usually lose their leading margin.
and the funny thing about all that is that he even doesn't play serious all the time if you compare his efforts in particular games like the first one in cleveland or in orlando couple days ago or compare playing style and effort with miami and the years before with cleveland.

no matter on which team you would put him on he would be their leader and the team would get into the playoffs. only look what happened to the cavs. from back to back 60win seasons to breaking the worst losing streak in nba history.

If that were the case, Steve Nash never would have won MVP, Kobe would have more than 1, and Jordan would have won every single year he was in the league.

You are correct, team record matters. Just about every MVP has been on a top 4 NBA team.

The Bulls are 3rd in the east and realistically might finish in 4th or 5th. Rose does not have a shot at MVP unless the Bulls have a miraculous turnaround on the road.

Rashidi said...

Let's please not pretend that Rose is anywhere as good at creating contact as those guys. Rose is a player who attacks the rim, has been since day one, just like those guys.

There's a reason LeBron as an 18 year old rookie was getting as many free throws as Rose is NOW.

Rashidi said...

Rashidi said...

Regarding Rajon Rondo, I raised his mid-range up to 78 (from 71), but also lowered his close rating to 74 (from 84).

Anonymous said...

Are you kidding? LeBron was getting insane hype as a high school player. He came into the league with a huge reputation. Everybody knew who this man was.

You really think that once Noah gets back, the Bulls are going to lose more games? It's also not possible for them to be the 5th seed, as they will win their division - no doubt about that. 11-0 at the moment vs the Crappy Central.

Even so, I don't see the Magic catching up at this point. They've struggled recently, especially with the elite teams. The Bulls will at least be the 3rd seed by the end of the season.

I really don't want to hear that crap about the Bulls only beating the Heat by 3. The Bulls were without Noah by that point, were still starting Keith Bogans and the Heat still had Wade and Bosh. Not having one of three all-stars is not an excuse. The Bulls are just a better rebounding team, which is what beat Miami and what has beat them all season. Oh, and having Kyle Korver hit that game winning three and having Derrick Rose helps too.

Anonymous said...

Whoops, forgot one thing about Rose's FTA.

Rose has the repuatation of avoiding contact. ShamSports has a nice article (video included) on this. http://blog.shamsports.com/2010/04/derrick-rose-isn-very-good-at-drawing.html

That may have been true his rookie year (because I was unable to watch many Bulls games that season), he was getting hammered last season (and in the playoffs, where he only averaged 4.4 in 5 games vs the physical Cavs). He has been getting hammered this season as well.

Somehow, Rose played 44 minutes against the Rockets this season without shooting a single free throw. That is insane, because I know for a fact he went into the lane looking for contact near the final minutes of the game and instead had to drain a buzzer beating 3 because if he went into the paint looking for the and-1, he wasn't going to get it.

Anonymous said...

Rashidi,

Have you done your re-editing and updating of the Spurs roster. I believe that a couple guys (McDyess, Hill, Parker and Jefferson) could use a boost. While, Gary Neal definitely needs a official edit and Tiago Splitter needs a slight deduction. What do you think?

Either way, the MVP is not going to the best player on the east's 4th/5th team (or even 3rd team). As things stand now it will go to LeBron or Kobe.

So let me get this straight. LeBron draws more fouls than Rose because of high school hype? THIS is your argument?

Hill is one of those players whose overall increases substantially when you switch his position to SG. I will be looking for ways to boost their team rating.

Anonymous said...

It'll be tough to increase the team's overall rating much, mostly because of the starters low MPG. But, I believe that the role-players and Parker are playing at a higher level than last season (even Matt Bonner). I'm not sure if statistics bare that out.

Out of the big three, Parker is the one most hurt by the minutes limit. He could easily average 20/8 in 35 or more minutes a game, thus comparing him more favorably with the PG's ahead of him, but that won't happen until playoff time. His lack of high assists and better perimeter shooting, although he's attempting more three's than the last few seasons, also hurt his overall rating. His defense and decision-making are better than ever before.

Anonymous said...

No, that's not my argument, but it's rather odd that Rose attacks the rim just as often, if not more than LeBron (this season) and yet takes 3 more FTA than him.

Also, it's not impossible for the Celtics to still fall apart, or to give up on the regular season, because no one on the Celtics is winning MVP, even if they win the best record in the league. Also, injuries happen. The Heat could still fall off. Shit, so could the Bulls. We all saw what happened to the Heat once LeBron showed what an ass he was with his 'karma is a bitch' comment.

Anonymous said...

...I forgot to add my argument.

LeBron gets more FTA than Rose because LeBron has a reputation as a guy who draws fouls, Rose has a reputation as a guy who avoids contact. Despite being a superstar, Rose still doesn't get respect from refs and still gets tons of foul calls missed. Trust me, I watch the games. We get to see the replays after a blatant foul is missed.

And it's sad because obviously Rose isn't the only one. And LeBron obviously isn't the only one with his reputation either.

Westbrook will get 8+ FTA for the rest of his career, and so will Durant. That will never change. Because they have a reputation.

Anonymous said...

Aha, Bulls' fans say bullshit.

I also forgot to comment on your schedule difficulty.
If I remember correctly, the Bulls had the most difficult schedule at the beginning of the season, up until December 8th. They won on their Circus Trip for the first time since 1998.

They have already been through a difficult part of their schedule, and did fine, and that was without Boozer. When Noah gets back (he says the Toronto game after the ASG), I think they'll do just fine. More so if they can get a real SG, or at least someone better than Bogans, such as Courtney Lee (most probable), OJ Mayo (longshot) or Stephen Jackson (yuck).

Parker will surely go up when I re-edit him.

For Bonner, the only thing that would really go up is his 3pt rating which wouldn't affect his overall too much. His rebounding on both ends are currently career lows. Actually the biggest change I'd be making with him is lowering his shooting tendencies as he is strictly a spot-up guy this season.

I'd expect minor tweaks but nothing big for anyone besides Parker.

Rashidi said...

LeBron gets more FTA than Rose because LeBron has a reputation as a guy who draws fouls, Rose has a reputation as a guy who avoids contact.

LeBron has a reputation for drawing fouls BECAUSE HE DRAWS FOULS. He is a freight train that looks for contact on every possession.

Rose has a reputation for avoiding fouls BECAUSE HE AVOIDS FOULS. He has a finesse style that includes many tear drops.

Tear drops. Freight train. Which do you think will draw more fouls?

Rashidi said...

Dunks
Durant - 81
Wade - 58
LeBron - 46
Westbrook - 30
Rose - 15

FTA per 36 mins
Durant: 9.1
Wade: 9.0
LeBron: 8.6
Westbrook: 8.2
Rose: 5.8

Coincidence? Hardly. These players all attack the rim more than Rose.

But then, what of Allen Iverson? He was getting to the line and wasn't dunking much more than Rose!

Iverson's numbers were padded by his minutes and shot attempts, as one of the league's premier ball-hogs.

For his career Iverson took 7.8 FTA per 36 minutes on 19.8 FGA. Rose is at 5.8 FTA on 18.9 FGA this year. Iverson was known as the most fearless little man ever, attacking the basket relentlessly. He was quicker than Rose, a better ball handler, and more aggressive. THAT is why he got to the line more.

Derrick Rose 2010-2011

I see a player who contorts his body and uses a variety of fakes to avoid contact. Where is this supposed contact he's not getting fouls on due to rep?

Anonymous said...

You have got to be kidding me. You're watching highlights (maybe 2-3 possessions from one game) and concluding that Rose isn't getting fouled because he does these fakes?

Look, I get it. You're a Knicks fan, so you don't watch Bulls games, and you're a stat junkie, so you look at PER and other stats such as FTA per 36and conclude that all I say is bullshit. So I understand why you don't think I'm telling the truth when it comes to Rose's drives. But you can't look at a highlight reel and base all of your assumptions off of that and maybe the 3-4 games that the Knicks play the Bulls in.

You could go look at the tape of that Knicks-Bulls game on Christmas. Stoudamire rocked Rose once or twice, and made a couple clean blocks on the ball as well. But he was fouled more than the refs called.

Rashidi said...

Newsflash - ALL players get no-calls.

That includes LeBron. That includes Wade. Rose is hardly unique in this regard. You can call me a Knicks fan, and I can call you a Bulls fan, but the fact is we have seen LeBron and Wade play NUMEROUS games over the years and everyone who has seen them play can see the difference between guys like that and Derrick Rose.

Rose is looking to score by avoiding contact, LeBron/Wade are looking for contact just about every time they go up for a shot.

When Rose starts juking players into the air on mid-range shots or get hammered on drives and put it in without flinching, you let me know.

Great work Rashidi. I know the cavaliers are an embarrasment but Ramon Sessions needs a major boost in your ratings in my opinion. Since Mo Williams went down he has been playing great ball especially recently where he's been putting up about 16.5 pts and 8.5 assists a game. Even over the course of the entire season he is the 14th best pg in the league according to Hollinger's PER ratings and you have him as your 50th best pg. Just an observation I have made while trying to build a dynasty from the ground up with the cavs.

Anonymous said...

If you're going to give sessions a much deserved boost then I realize some cavs should probably get bumped down since they are so bad. As a diehard that still somehow watches all their games In my opinion guys like Boobie Gibson (has really cooled off since hot start to season), Leon Powe, and especially Joey Graham and perhaps Hollins could probably use a pretty big decrease. Again, I realize almost nobody pays attention to the cavs anymore these days but just giving you my 2 cents take it for what it's worth. Thanks again for all your hard work I have really enjoyed your rosters!!

Rashidi said...

Mo's defense is abominable, which PER doesn't really account for. Ditto for Sessions, whose lack of a 3pt game also hurts him.

Anonymous said...

Very good points with the defense and the lack of 3 point. However, I still feel he needs some sort of boost. There is no question that at this moment he is better than guys like Maynor, Bayless, and Dragic (who all are not great 3 point shooters themselves). I'm not saying the guy should be in the 80's but I think the 73 range would be more than fair all things considered.

Rashidi said...

Sessions bumped up to 69.

It simply isn't possible for him to be rated as high as you want him. The players you mentioned are all respectable three point shooters - Sessions has not hit a three in 50 games this year. He is the worst 3pt shooting PG in the entire league. He was 1-15 last year (79 games) and is 0-5 this year through the 50 games.

1 three in 129 games is simply unheard of for an NBA guard nowadays. If Sessions were even a mediocre 3pt shooter like the players you mentioned, his overall rating would jump 2 points right off the bat.

Anonymous said...

Fair enough. I understand what you're saying. I was wondering what you bumped Harris and Eyenga up to or if you have yet? Thanks again.

Lunatic Wolf said...

Overall just uses 3pt rating too much for Sessions to be that high. Great player though, always liked him when I saw him in Wuakee

Rashidi said...

Eyenga got his official edit. I have him at 65. 2K has him at 53.

Anonymous said...

That seems about spot on for Eyenga. What about Harris? Or you still working on him? How close are we to having all players edited? Sorry for all the questions I just am really anxious to finally start an association with your roster as it is the only one I will use.

Corox said...

Hi Rashidi, do you think you will put T-Mac at the PG position at your next update and Stuckey at SG/PG position ?

Thanks for thr work, keep it up !

Anonymous said...

WTF ?

Stuckey is PG, T-Mac is SG, why do you want change that ?

Anonymous said...

T-Mac has been playing PG for the Pistons...
Right?

Corox said...

T-Mac plays starter PG for the Pistons and Stuckey starter SG, Stuckey defend on PG, T-Mac on SG, but it's T-Mac who runs the offense right now

Anonymous said...

It's the same with LeBron but he's not a PG however

Rashidi said...

Yes, which is ultimately why I left T-Mac at SG in the rotation, as I don't want to change their primary positions (T-Mac drops 8 overall at PG)

Rashidi said...

Harris not edited yet, will get to him before an update.

onyxxx said...

rashidi PLEASE just one clear answer, yey or ney on pc roster?

corox said...

Lebron plays PG for the Heat sometimes, T-Mac plays PG all the time now.

Thx for the quick answer Rashidi

Anonymous said...

Rashidi you have Amar'e under rated inside, he's shooting 65% at the rim and you have m rated at an 82 inside and only a 79 SIT.

Anonymous said...

65% at the rim but he's only 55% without the dunk. (88 !)

So he's rated 82.

Anonymous said...

Commum sense says that Rashidis PC roster version would be started once both console versions reach the complete edited point, includding playbook edits (thus not final as that would only happen once the season is over, further updates should come reflecting dayly edits).

Just as a reference, this is the first year PS3 users are getting his roster and he has been doing rosters since practically ever.

Good things usually dont come when we want them to, but rather when they are ment to. Be patient and specially, polite with the tone of your requests.

Anonymous said...

"65% at the rim but he's only 55% without the dunk. (88 !)"


I could care less, I watch him play every night and he's better than an 82 inside, and his dunk is a 78, not an 88.

Anonymous said...

88 is the number of dunk Amare mades this season, not his rating.

Inside shot rating no includes the dunk.

TGballin said...

LOL@ ANON posters who say

I know "insert their favorite player here" is better then a 82.

do you?
so you helped develop the game?

because aside from 2ksports rashidi is the best at understanding data, and translating it into ratings close to or what 2k would/should do.
thats why your here squirt.
if you dont like it.. change it yourself!

im tired of coming here and seeing the same whining and crying all the time when their copy of 2k edits players to.

rant over.

CelphProclaimed said...

What does my copy being able to edit ratings have to do with what Rashidi's release has them rated as? I'm suggesting an update for his next release so he can improve his overall product.

Rashidi's rosters aren't perfect that's why he constantly updates them, such as dropping Brown's 3 point rating by 5 points after someone mentioned it in the comments and saying "Editing an entire league means these things don't get noticed right off the bat."

Thus, I'm trying to constructively point out 2 area's he might want to take a look at, I've also mentioned in the past I think he has Amare's hands and LPS over rated so you're attempt to belittle and write me off as an Amar'e homer is just false and unfounded.

Also, no one was talking to or about you, so maybe you should just go fuck yourself, squirt.

Rashidi said...

Both sides are appreciated.

Anonymous said...

Luol Deng has been playing excellent defense all season but his rebounding is down. Any chance you could take a look at that and make any necessary adjustments?

Anonymous said...

You have got to be kidding me. You're watching highlights (maybe 2-3 possessions from one game) and concluding that Rose isn't getting fouled because he does these fakes?

He got you there.

Richard said...

Hey Rashidi, what are your thoughts on the Cavs? Namely hickson, samardo and harris? hickson has been a new player and i think a 72 is a tad low. His rebounding and blocks have been much improved. Manny has been a nice find, and is better than parker. He is a good defender, decent shot and athletic. Samuels is pretty much as advertised, a post player with poor rebounding skills and an uncanny lloyd banks resemblance. Im one of the few cavs fans out there and i know they arent the most attractive team to overhaul. Sessions is better than mo too, though i understand how his lack of a 3 pt shot jurts him. Continue the great work!

Rashidi said...

Deng will be 79 overall in the next update.

I will check Hickson before an update, which I will probably make in a few hours.

tgballin said...

Celph said: "Also, no one was talking to or about you, so maybe you should just go fuck yourself, squirt."

you seem to have a name celph proclaimed. and unless your the one spamming anonymous...

then i wasnt talking to you either,squirt.

Anonymous said...

Hi Rashidi!
Will your next update have updated playbooks???
Thanks

Rashidi said...

I released an update before work today.

It would be a great help if people could list the "broken" plays that are leading to too many ill-advised shots. For example the Clippers SGs take a huge amount of threes, there is some screen play that the CPU simply cannot guard and it leads to an uncontested three just about every time. I ran a sim that saw RANDY FOYE score 26 points with 7-9 on threes, and Rasual Butler (backup SG) go 4-6.

Obviously some of the Durant plays are problems since he takes too many threes, and I think Deng might have a problematic play on the Bulls as well.

Rashidi said...

I should note I just got Marvel vs Capcom 3, so I will spend some time playing that. If you have a PSP I strongly suggest picking up Tactics Ogre.

I will also be starting a 2nd job tomorrow, so editing time might be limited going forward.

Corox said...

Which sliders do you recommand to use with your roster Rashidi ?

Anonymous said...

How did Bosh go from an 85 and one of the top PF in the game in your final 2k10 roster to an 80 and the 14th best PF behind guys like Millsap(who is a deron williams product) in a halfseason? Did his skills erode? Are you rating based on players skill or just to get the statistical output to correlate real life? If he gets traded to a bad team and retakes the role of the number one option like he did in Toronto, would you raise him 5 points? Who he plays with has no bearing on his skillset and isnt the skillset what is supposed to be represented in the ratings? Im curious what the reasoning is.

Anonymous said...

Then again, how do you meassure skills ? guessing ?

You do it with the results of one production over his playing time and ussage.

As soon as we start applying subjectivity and manipulating the stats to fit our perception, we begin to fall in 2ks own mistake: biased and unscaled ratings.

Bosh should see a revision, but his decrease is more than evident as rebounds and offensive awareness were heavily weighted into his previous rating and are an integral part of 2ks overall formula.

People tend to account (with subjectivity) for things that do not happen, like Kobe is a better shooter when uncontested than Eddie House. Kobes percentage of uncontested plays is so insignificant that doesnt even come close to a minimal representative amount.

Therefor, you cant properly translate subjectivity into ratings. Just look at the potential rating, totaly ones perspective.

Rashidis isnt perfect but has the most scaled and unbiased roster out there, by far.

Anonymous said...

I agree. rashidi does have the best roster. Im just curious, not trying to bash at all. I know its a delicate balance. My thing is, Im curious as to his opinion because players stats are easily skewed. Bosh on a bad team is an 85, on a good team is an 80. Tyson Chandler playing next to Kidd goes up, Millsap with Deron benefits while conversely Mo Williams without LeBron getting him open shots due to collapsing defense goes down and suddenly his midrange is an 80, not an 88. i know Rashidi cant program the game to recognize these differences, and he does a superb job. Im not bashing him. Im just curious as to how he toes the line, his theory. Reason is because in association if the Cavs deal Mo to Orlando, his midrange probably jumps a few points. Essentially he is the same player, its just the variables around him change. Basketball is such a fluid sport and everything is so interdependent. Thanks.

Justin said...

I'm curious as to why Melo is an 85? Why is his rebounding rating so low too? He's averaging almost 8 rebounds a game this year.

Justin said...

I should point out that I'm referring to the new roster, not this one. The one just released on the 14th.

Anonymous said...

Derrick Rose's potential rating is should not be a 94.

Should be more like a 97 compared to Tyreke Evans is a 95 and John Wall a 97.

Rashidi said...

Bosh's scoring efficiency has actually gone up greatly since the last time I checked, so he might be due for a raise.

Specifically, mid-range and Inside.

Anonymous said...

Hey Rashidi,
Does the most recent roster update (from Feb 14) have every player updated? I know the last couple were close. Thanks!

Tgballin said...

rashidi first off even with all im bout to say this roster still kicks ass but,
u ask of broke plays and 3pt fga and it seems to be present at least to sum degree with all teams.

and i can always beat the heat by just laying off M chalmers, he IS jacking. and i HATE that play where bosh runs off a couple screens catches and shoots from the baseline. its unguardable. i dont blame them for calling it 3 straight times on me.

i played the knicks last night and off the top 3pt fga
felton 12 (made 3)
douglas 6 (made 2)
gallo 3 (made1)
chandler 4 (?)

then i played the spurs and the only play they ran was this double screen where manu catches and shoots a 3 from the top of 3 pt line.

in closing wasnt this something 2k supposedly addressed in the patch ?

ie calling the same plays over and over.
i hope u can fix this.

Anonymous said...

Eyenga vertical needs to be in the 96 range. He has a 42 inch vertical. Higher than Mayo, who is a 95. His dunk needs to go up as well and given Nates package. Manny Harris needs a speed boost, 77 is too low. As well as a vertical boost...vertical is 39.5...should be in the 90 range.

Keith said...

Hey Rashidi great work on the rosters man. This is the first time I visited your blog and after reading some of the posts I have to agree with what a few people were saying earlier with Sessions from Cleveland. I just watched him single handedly beat my Lakers. I haven't ever really seen the guy play much so I was curious and looked up some stats for him. In February with big minutes he is putting up some very impressive numbers. 19.8 pts 8.8 asts 59% from the field!! 88 ft% and 3.55 ast to turnover. Also I looked and he is a top 10 pg in terms of PER. I have no clue how much 3 point affects ratings and I'm assuming he isn't a great defensive player but it seems like he can get to the rim at will and has great vision. Just wanted to comment after watching tonight's game against the Lakers. Again haven't seen him play much over his career but man I was Very impressed tonight and looking at stats it seems he has been doing it alot of late.

Kaleb said...

Look at all this cavaliers love after they shock the basketball world by beating the Lakers LOL. The internet is blowing up with this stuff.

Anyway yes Sessions still needs to be higher than you got him the dude is one of the few bright spots for the worst team in the league. And while your at it, Mo Williams can just swap ratings with Sessions and go down to about a 70 overall. He is the most frustrating player I have ever watched and is showing that he is nothing without that superstar there to set him up. He's a one trick pony and now he's freaking hurt all the time to boot.

Anonymous said...

Sessions is due a revision, thus dont expect him to come up significantly as, with players of +300 plays, he is top 5 worse defensive player of the NBA. Not of his position but of the whole league !

According to Synergy stats and espn.

If 3pts wheight heavily within the overall, defense wheights a lot more.

Tgballin said...

LOL @ cavs new found net luv.

they beat a team that if im not mistaken played their 5th rd game in 7nights.

LAL is bored,old and ready to go home. and i dont even like the lakers.

Anonymous said...

TgBallin...what would you give Eyenga and Harris for vertical and speed ratings since what is being suggested is so ludicrous? Have you watched them play? Eyenga is a top 5 or 10 athlete in the entire NBA. Lakers win or not. How you connect the two is as being related is idiotic.

tgballin said...

Rashidi.......great rosters but why are the CAPs so off? Big guys have guard packages and the looks barely resemble them. Recruit some talent man! Also, please stop messing with player weights. Too many guys look nothing like themself. Durant looks like a bodybuilder...id rather have the player actually look like himself when in game than have the correct weight in the menu screen...common sense dude. It all about obsessive cimpulsive statistical analysis. Keep up the work my man!

Commum sense is the most uncommun of all senses; so, thanks God for not letting Rashidi have that of the masses.

He also has the compossure of not letting his work get biased by homerism and by subjectivity. If an honest, backed up revision is due, be sure that it will be done.

Thanks to him, we get to have the best 2K11 roster on the best NBA game ever and an authentic experience, as opposed of that of default and of all those ludicrous custom options out there.

Are you retarded? Seriously, obviously I was the one you aimed your post at or I wouldn't have responded.

I posted twice anonymously both times about the same Amar'e ratings, just because other people posted anonymously doesn't mean they're all from the same person dipshit, so that "spamming" comment really makes you look stupid.

Rashidi said...

Deron is going to love it in Brooklyn though.

...Though the timing is a bit odd since Deron declared that he wanted to join Amare in NY... playing so close is only going to feed that.

Rashidi said...

I still prefer Chris Paul to Deron Williams... but Deron is the better fit IF the Knicks were to sign Steve Nash as a backup.

The reasons for Nash to rejoin D'Antoni in a major market chasing a championship in a role best suited for his age is... well, I just stated it.

Nash/Deron could mesh on the floor, Paul/Nash not so much.

Of course, Billups could end the need for a PG and then the Knicks do something unthinkable like add Dwight Howard.

I LOVE THE NBA THIS WEEK

TGballin said...

i wonder if jerry sloan will coach the jazz again since deron is gone?

i understand the jazz are trying to be pro-active but getting d.favors when you have al jeff and millsap makes little sense to me, but im not a GM.

I wont do that, but i also wont waste my time doing his work since someone who claims to be the best roster editor and real insider cant seem to take care of simple shit. He is good at what he does but theres a reason teams dont hire stat nerds to make real basketball decisions. Now that Deron is in NJ watch Millsap ratings drop bigtime. Point is he doesnt rate plays on their reallife skillset, he rates them to recreate a boxscore, tunnelvision style. And Caveman...your photo looks like you swallowed a nut and someone clicked a pic the exact moment you realized you like the taste. Stay classy twatwaffle.

Rashidi said...

Sloan is done, Utah is rebuilding now.

I don't really like the Knick trade when we get down to the technicalities but ultimately I'm just glad it's over so we can all move on. This whole situation was nearly as big as LeBron's even though Melo isn't at that kind of level, he's just an all-star small forward, ultimately the 3rd best one in the league after Bron and Melo.

Generally I always enjoy player movement because it's interesting to see what teams look like after the dust settles.

Rashidi said...

Caveman...im not going through 30 caps and typing it all out. Just giving heads up.

They need a reliable backup and may move Jefferson in the future. Let's not forget Mehmet Okur was supposed to be the primary backup but has been completely unreliable due to his health. They need the depth.

Anonymous said...

Dear Lunatic Wolf,

I tested your theory with Shaq, I was easily able to back down players at the current weight 325.

I then changed his weight to 145 and was still able to back down players with ease.

I believe weight in this game has no effect on the gameplay other than cosmetics.

The Mavs have a top 10 defense and a top 10 offense and if you take away the seven straight they lost without Nowitzki and Butler, they would be 41-9 right now. Yet you say the Grizzlies, Warriors, Suns, and Rockets are better than them. You do know that the Mavs beat the Lakers, Celtics, Spurs when they were healthy, and Heat twice, right? And also explain how Blake Griffin is an 86 when he doesn't have a jumpshot, can't shoot free throws, and can't play defense.

their on a treadmill. running in place. lets not forget how stupid they were for extending conley like he's the next cp3 or sumthin.

Caveman said...

Your team could be the Raptors. The Grizz have a future. They got Battier to replace Gay while h'es injured.

Battier is a player every team wants. He's going to be a player you like while Gay is away. Mayo is going to be able to do what he wants while Battier shuts down the other team's swing.

tgballin said...

im talking more towards the 1st rd picks they gave away last yr for brewer and this for battier.
&all for the right to lose in the
1st rd.

oj mayo reportedly was being sent to pacers but the deal was like one minute late.
im glad it fell thru but it kinda shows how fast grizz will give up on sumbody.
thabeet 2nd overall and mayo 4th overall.

raptors have a future star in demar derozan in my opinion.

Thanks Rashidi. Great work.
I just think Dallas need a quick update. It's a top 8 team in the league. The team play very well (16-1 streak !) Tyson Chandler deserves a higher rating. He's probably the 2d best defensive center in the league and his offense is improved this year.

Rashidi doesn't know how to adjust the 3pts rating, it seems like he does it randomly :

jerryd bayless 79 - kevin durant 76 ?

ilgauskas 77 - kobe bryant 77 ?

stoudemire 74 - carmelo anthony 68 ?

Rashidi said...

Jerryd Bayless
79 is from earlier in the year. Last year I had him at 69. I currently have him at 73.

Kevin Durant
Shooting 33.7% on threes.

Kobe Bryant
Shooting 31.9% on threes.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas
26-62 (41.9%) on threes over the past two seasons. HAS NOT ATTEMPTED A THREE THIS SEASON which has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with his ability to hit them.

Amare Stoudemire
10-21 (47.6%) on threes this season.

Carmelo Anthony
Shooting 33.3% on threes, and shot 15% during December. He has obviously rebounded since then (shooting 45.9% in February), and I currently have him at 78.

Anonymous said...

Kevin Durant
Shooting 33.7% on three BUT 5.2 3Pts Field Goals Attempted Per Game

Kobe Bryant
Shooting 31.9% on threes BUT 4.2 3Pts Field Goals Attempted Per Game

Stoudemire : 0.4 3Pts Field Goals Attempted Per Game

I guess there are different ratings between players who shoot wide open 3s and those who shoot more 3s or contested 3s....

All your 3pt ratings are only based off statistics and you forget the common sense.

I supposed you were not watching basket ball games and your only interest are the boxscores but at this point I'm surprised.

yea but you guys keep saying that i dont think he cares

Is Omer Asik going to get any ratings boosts given his recent performances?

Ian said...

Common Sense also reveals that individual ratings don't tell the whole story about the player. People always come on here and complain about how this player or that player has a better shot rating than Kobe. You're the ones that are too focused on stats. Watch how they actually PLAY in the video game. That's where a lot of the ratings come from. A player may look odd on paper, but they will make and miss the shots they're supposed to in the game.

If the players are truly playing unrealistically, then I can see the reason to complain. Give it go first, though.

Ian I completly agree with you but that's what I was saying in my post to many times I play the heat and lebron will chuck up 3s from all over and be hitting clutch 3 with the game on the line which if anybodys been watching lately you know that's not the case. I have no problem lowering his ratings on my own all I'm sayin is rashidi likes to say he has realistic roster which I think he does for the most part but I think lebron needs to be lowered I could care less if he's better than kobe I just think his 3 rating and offensive clutch need lowered

Dear Ian

So I can play with the Miami Heat and turn Ilguaskas into one of the best 3 pointers of the league.

You're so clever.

If a player has a good rating he will not miss the shots he is suppose to, he will hit them. That is not about statistics, this is common sense.

That would be cheesing.

Rashidi said...

Amare's threes are usually contested, and often come in clutch 4th quarter situations.

If he were being rated by his percentage he'd be 90+ so you obviously don't know what you are talking about. What is wrong with mid-70s? Because he has the same rating as mediocre 3pt shooters? It ain't like he has the same rating as James Jones or Kyle Korver. Kobe/Durant/Melo are HARDLY money when open.

Amare would EASILY hit better than 30% if he took more threes. He doesn't, because attacking the basket and being closer in proximity to it is much more effective for him.

I find it incredibly ironic that the same people who accuse me of being nothing but a stat nerd are the same people complaining about a player whose shown a skill level outside of statistical output.

Ilgauskas isn't supposed to miss open threes.

Makes and attempts are two different things.

He hasn't MADE a three this year but he hasn't MISSED one either. If you want to take threes with Ilgauskas and lose his offensive rebounding, that's your coaching strategy. Erik Spoelstra clearly sees things differently (better) than you.

So I have a player in my team who can help me to win games because he has a 77 3pts rating, but I can't shoot 3s with him because he doesn't shoot 3s in real life.

Are you serious?

Conclusion : If he doesn't shoot 3s during this season he should not have 77. If ratings are based off the current season, it should be the same for every players.

And Amare could make eyes closed free throw too, but he dosen't want, it's too easy for him....

One thing's for sure Erik Spoelstra knows something about coaching strategy and PLAYBOOKS, but when I play wih your rosters I realize it's not your case. Maybe Erik Spoelstra sees things better than you too.

Caveman said...

So... it's more realistic to give Big Z a 0 in 3PT shooting despite the fact he can and has been a good 3 point shooter in the past. So in 2K, he'd brick every 3 you took with him? How's that more realistic than giving him the 3PT rating he obviously deserves? He's been in the league since 1996. It's not like he's in his 3rd year and suddenly stopped taking 3s. He can make threes and will in the future, but this year he's being used a different way because the Heat need their bigs down low and not in the back court.

this post starts with anonymous whining about 3pt ratings not considering the tendency and over a month later you guys are still talking about the same shit

Anonymous said...

We would like to talk about different sides of the game like coach profiles, playbooks, touches and tendencies but those are things Rashidi doesn't master

I want to see lebrons 3 rating go down and his offensive clutch he's not a clutch player and he's had 4 games as of late to win it and he's choked yet he a 95? He needs to be an 85 would be more realistic at 95 and his 3 being an 80 he puts up 3s at thee end of games and is draining them

Except my coach profiles and tendencies are the very best you will find. It's not 2006 anymore.


Playbooks require a bit more time to work on, which I haven't been able to get. It's easier to edit a player here and there than it is to sit down and edit a team's playbooks and pick from the hundreds of plays at the game's disposal.

Spoelstra only uses Quick Isolation. I don't get it.

Lunatic Wolf said...

Rashidi has the best tendencies thanks to Synergy.

Is it time for a CP3 deduction yet?

Rashidi said...

CP3 down to 92 in next update.

Ian said...

I thought my comment was pretty benign. Just trying to contribute.

Lunatic Wolf said...

Also, check out Al Jefferson's past month of February. He has been beasting it.

I think cleveland is due for revamp...Sessions has really emerged as a very good pg, Samuels is looking good, Harangody showed flashes as well and Hickson is really looking like a cornerstone player to build around. Which is amazing because i was ready to completely jump ship early this season on him. Alot of credit goes to Byron Scott. Rashidi, it seems the Cavs have more talent then their record indicates and i know they had a lot of injuries but why do you think theyve underperformed so badly? What is your opinion of Scott as an X and O coach? Sessions is looking like a legit 18 - 20 ppg, 8+ apg guy and J.J. Has become a 15 ppg, 10-12 rpg player whp is very active. They have a bright future and a lot of good, young athletic players.
