Official NBA 2K12 ratings released

Editors Note: If anyone can help me get 2K12 early so I can finish this list and provide analysis on the Legends and their teams, please send an email to thereal2kinsider@gmail.com.

Via a fanshot YouTube video (updated video w/ all player ratings)

The initial fan reaction from these ratings has been negative.  A lot of people are complaining that their players went down in rating.  It would appear that this was a global change which seems to imply a change in 2K's rating formulas since it is HIGHLY DOUBTFUL that they would edit 300+ players when they have only shown willingness to edit a maximum of 20 per summer.

This is especially evident when looking at the ratings of lesser players that 2K never bothers editing.  Just about every center went down 5-6 overall points.  Most PFs went down 3-5 points.  SFs, SGs, and PGs mostly went down 1-2 points, so the big losers here were the big men.  This doesn't make a ton of sense to me.  Last season my ratings for the average starter were as follows: PG/77, SG/73, SF/76, PF/79, C/75.  For the most part, the ratings were balanced to reflect the overall talent in the league - PF is the deepest position, while SG is the weakest.

The main complaint that could be made about the previous formula is that shooting PF/C came out underrated; if one gave a PF a 99 3pt rating it would only improve their overall rating by 2 points... and we all know that a PF/C with a 99 3pt rating would be one of the best players of all-time (and certainly a very valuable commodity in the NBA where every team now utilizes a "stretch PF".  One would have thought that Dirk Nowitzki carrying the Mavericks to the championship would have earned this long needed formula change, since he is the biggest name that is underrated.

One of 2K's biggest flaws with 2K's ratings is that PF/C are way too slow in the game (low speed and quickness ratings).  It would appear that athleticism has taken a greater effect on the overall rating, which might help explain why LeBron and Rose went up a point, while Dwight Howard is one of only three centers to not drop in rating.

Here is a list of all the players that remained status quo or increased in rating.

POINT GUARD
Jrue Holiday (0)
Louis Williams (+1)
Brandon Jennings (0)
Earl Boykins (+2)
Derrick Rose (+1)
Ishmael Smith (+3)
Jeff Teague (0)
Marcus Banks (0)
Rodney Stuckey (0)
Zabian Dowdell (+1)
John Wall (0)
Sherron Collins (0)

It would appear that the league's most athletic PGs did not get hit with a decrease.  It seems that dunking as a greater effect on overall rating as all of these players can dunk (even Ish Smith with a 49 dunk rating and ridiculous speed/quick ratings) It would have been nice to see 3pt specialists get a boost (such as Mike Bibby, Daniel Gibson, Derek Fisher, Steve Blake) since those players are generally regarded as better players than say, ISHMAEL SMITH.

SHOOTING GUARD
Evan Turner (+1)
Garrett Temple (+2)
Matt Carroll (0)
Keith Bogans (0)
Manny Harris (+2)
Dwyane Wade (0)
Bill Walker (0)
Trey Johnson (0)
Sasha Vujacic (+1)
J.R. Smith (+1)
Gary Neal (0)
Thabo Sefolosha (+1)
Daequan Cook (+2)
Nick Young (+2)
Jordan Crawford (0)
Quinton Ross (0)

There are two different types of players among the SGs: defensive specialists, and 3pt specialists (Young and Smith are more than specialists but there is no denying their 3pt ability).  It seems Wade didn't drop because his defensive ratings are among the best in the game at SG.

SMALL FORWARD
Dominic McGuire (+2)
Joey Graham (+2)
Alonzo Gee (0)
Jamario Moon (+2)
Shane Battier (+1)
Sam Young (+3)
Damien Wilkins (+1)
LeBron James (+2)
Patrick Ewing Jr. (+1)
Francisco Garcia (0)
Quentin Richardson (+1)
Earl Clark (+1)
Caron Butler (0)
Shawn Marion (+1)
Wilson Chandler (0)
Paul George (+1)
Tayshaun Prince (+1)
Sonny Weems (+2)
James Anderson (0)
Mickael Pietrus (0)
Jared Dudley (+1)
Martell Webster (+1)
Maurice Evans (+3)
Cartier Martin (0)
Ime Udoka (0)
Ronald Dupree (+1)

It is very clear to me that defense counts more towards SF overall, and this is the main reason why LeBron went up 2 points from the end of last season.  While I was compiling the ratings list I raised an eyebrow when Battier, went up, had my suspicions when Q-Rich of all people went up, confirmed when Marion/Prince went up and Chandler  didn't drop (making him the highest rated Nugget player), and nailed the coffin shut when Maurice Evans went up by 3 points, more than any other player (though he now shares this dubious trait with Ishmael Smith).

Athletic defensive specialist Dominic McGuire now has an equal overall rating to that of Boris Diaw, which brings up an important point: "Overall" rating is NOT an overall rating.  Players with all-around abilities (like Diaw) do NOT fare well if they are at the PF position which values rebounding and shot blocking.  McGuire has absolutely no talent beyond his defense and this rates him as just as good "overall" because 2K has decided to place a high premium on defense and dunk rating.  There isn't a soul in the world who thinks McGuire or Diaw are comparable on any level.  This formula change leads to an unbalanced association mode.  Players like McGuire and Diaw are now on equal footing when it comes to trades and the ability to start for the team.  That is just... idiotic and terrible implementation by 2K Sports. If it wasn't broke, why fix it?

POWER FORWARD
Tyrus Thomas (+2)
Larry Sanders (0)
Kevin Garnett (0)
Zach Randolph (+2)
Paul Millsap (0)
Darnell Jackson (0)
Amare Stoudemire (0)
Dirk Nowitzki (0)
Kevin Seraphin (+1)

CENTER
Joakim Noah (0)
Dwight Howard (0)
Chris Andersen (0)
Alexis Ajinca (0)

Only three PF/C went up in the entire game, and only thirteen avoided a rating decrease. The players that were spared are almost overwhelmingly good defensive players. I would be willing to bet that Millsap is one of the few players that actually had their rating improved from 2K11, it just doesn't "show" due to formula change, although he could also fall under the "athleticism" blanket since Amare was also spared (though Amare does also have much better defense/rebound ratings than he actually deserves).  Dirk on the other hand has already been confirmed to get improved ratings (he has 99 Close/Mid rating this year).

Now that I have confirmed the formula changes, PLEASE STOP CRYING ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE PLAYER DROPPING!   Here is the list that you've all been waiting for.  Take out the formula changes and it doesn't differ very much from 2K11.  Complain to 2K about THAT.

Ill wait for your analysis, as the only thing I really cared about was the rookie ratings.

Rashidi said...

Someone should post this at OS since I'm not allowed to.

beast10 said...

yeah you should put your predicted rookie ratings that would be cool

Mario said...

I see a similarity. You forgot to put Durant in the top for both 2K11 and 2K12.

Hi Rashidi !

Sent you a couple of mails.

Anyways, good to have you back !

P.S:
Will post your blog entries on OS, as usual.

Rashidi said...

Thanks for catching that Mario, fixed it.

The entire ratings list is up, including free agents.

The one good thing 2K has done so far is clean out the free agent pool as only players who played in 2011 are in it. This also means players who missed the season like Eddy Curry, Kelenna Azubuike, Darington Hobson, and Jeff Pendergraph are not in the game.

Rashidi said...

I can't help but laugh at all these people at OS who are still bickering about how so and so went down in ratings.

Based on what I'm finding, it's probable that he went UP under the 2K11 formula.
