NBA 2K12 Rookie Rating Analysis

As of 1/7/12 there are 5 second round picks who have signed contracts but have not been added to 2K's roster yet.  There are numerous players who made their teams out of training camp that have not been added to 2K's roster yet.

2011 FIRST ROUND

Kyrie Irving (Cavaliers, 1st Overall) 76/PG - Added 12/12
Inside Scoring: B-
Outside Scoring: B+
Perimeter Defense: A-
Post Defense: F
Ball Handling: A-
Rebounding: F
Basketball IQ: B
Athleticism: B+
Potential: 89

These ratings were actually well done by 2K Sports.  I agree with the vast majority of them.  Irving is unlikely to be an all-star right off the bat, but there is little doubt that he is Cleveland's best player and the best player in the 2011 draft right now.  He should be the favorite for Rookie of the Year as long as he gets enough minutes.  There are many similarities between Irving and rookie Chris Paul.  Whether or not he develops along the same track will be revealed with time.

Derrick Williams (Timberwolves, 2nd Overall) 71/PF - Added 12/13
Inside Scoring: B
Outside Scoring: B+
Perimeter Defense: D
Post Defense: C
Ball Handling: D
Rebounding: C
Basketball IQ: B-
Athleticism: B-
Potential: 88

Williams has a lot in common with teammate and former #2 pick Michael Beasley.  Beasley started off his career as a PF, and is currently the inefficient starting SF of a bad lottery team.  Williams should look to avoid this career trajectory, but he may not have the skillset to avoid being a glorified tweener.  If he plays well, it should force the Timberwolves to trade Beasley rather than sign him to a contract extension - a move that would not bode well for Williams' development.  Williams (along with Irving) was the first player edited by 2K this year, getting slight boosts to Dunk, Speed, Quickness, and Vertical (Irving saw a boost to his Dunk), leading to +1 Overall (71).

Enes Kanter (Jazz, 3rd Overall) 63/C - Added 12/14
Inside Scoring: B-
Outside Scoring: D-
Perimeter Defense: F
Post Defense: B-
Ball Handling: F
Rebounding: B
Basketball IQ: C+
Athleticism: D+
Potential: 82

While Kanter's rating might seem low (due to 2K not knowing how to properly rate centers), he actually ranks 35th among centers.  He is a bit of a mystery this year and it's anyone's guess just how effective he will actually be.

Tristan Thompson (Cavaliers, 4th Overall) 66/PF - Added 12/12
Inside Scoring: C+
Outside Scoring: F
Perimeter Defense: C-
Post Defense: B-
Ball Handling: D-
Rebounding: C+
Basketball IQ: B-
Athleticism: B-
Potential: 77

TT is very raw and was a bit of a stretch at the #4 pick.  He'll step into a starting role after Antawn Jamison is traded/waived mid-season, but it probably won't be pretty.  76 Dunk, 78 Block, 76 Defensive Awareness make him a poor man's Tyrus Thomas.

Jan Vesley (Wizards, 6th Overall) 63/SF - Added 12/14
Inside Scoring: C
Outside Scoring: C
Perimeter Defense: C+
Post Defense: C+
Ball Handling: C-
Rebounding: C-
Basketball IQ: C
Athleticism: C+
Potential: 80

A lot of analysts seem to be high on Vesley so I'm not sure where 2K got their assessment from.  He is considerably worse than fellow Wizard rookie SF Chris Singleton (18th, 67).  2K essentially has Vesley pegged as a less athletic Singleton.  It's a mistake to sleep on him, and this could be a player whose rating drastically rises as the season goes on.  Vesley could of course make 2K look very smart by not earning anything more than spot minutes in a crowded Wizard front court, but I think the odds of him being better than Singleton are pretty good.

Bismack Biyombo (Bobcats, 7th Overall) 55/PF - Added 12/22
Inside Scoring: C-
Outside Scoring: F
Perimeter Defense: D+
Post Defense: B
Ball Handling: F
Rebounding: C+
Basketball IQ: C-
Athleticism: B-
Potential: 72

Well, I'll give it to 2K Sports.  Reports on Biyombo say he is raw offensively, and they certainly made him so.  Every single one of Biyombo's Abilities is rated "Poor".  Biyombo isn't completely worthless in the post, however.  When he wasn't turning the ball over, he managed to finish his post-up plays (63% FG, 1st).  As the last first rounder to be added to the roster, I'm sure the Insider was just sick of whatever scouting he/she/it puts it and wanted to get him out of the way.

Brandon Knight (Pistons, 8th Overall) 67/PG - Added 12/13
Inside Scoring: C+
Outside Scoring: B+
Perimeter Defense: B-
Post Defense: F
Ball Handling: B
Rebounding: D-
Basketball IQ: B-
Athleticism: B
Potential: 81

Knight is a young scoring point with only average playmaking ability and suspect defense.  His defense should improve with time, but unless he also improves his scoring efficiency and passing, he's looking at a sixth man type career.

Kemba Walker (Bobcats, 9th Overall) 76/PG - Added 12/13
Inside Scoring: B
Outside Scoring: B
Perimeter Defense: B
Post Defense: F
Ball Handling: A-
Rebounding: D
Basketball IQ: B+
Athleticism: A
Potential: 85

Kemba is tied w/ Irving for highest rated player in the draft class.  He is also two years older, which means his ceiling isn't nearly as high.  Walker's pass rating might be slightly overrated (70), but his steal rating is as well.  Irving and Walker registered 3.0 STL% in college, yet are separated by 10 points (Irving 75, Walker 65).

Jimmer Fredette (Kings, 10th Overall) 63/PG - Added 12/13
Inside Scoring: C+
Outside Scoring: A-
Perimeter Defense: C
Post Defense: F
Ball Handling: B-
Rebounding: D-

2K Sports agreed with me (and most credible NBA analysts) deducing that Jimmer was one of the most over-hyped players in the country, suffering heavily from Adam Morrison & J.J. Redick "Unathletic player overly popular due to whiteness" syndrome.  His defense is embarrassingly bad, so bad that it's difficult to ever envision him becoming a starting caliber player.  His offensive skills will remind many Kings fans of prime-Mike Bibby, but his defense will remind many fans of... well, Mike Bibby (modern version, sadly).

Klay Thompson (Warriors, 11th Overall) 65/SG - Added 12/15
Inside Scoring: C+
Outside Scoring: A-
Perimeter Defense: C
Post Defense: F
Ball Handling: C
Rebounding: F

Thompson's outside shooting and poor defense will fit in on a Warriors team that seeks out both.  He should get big minutes replacing Reggie Williams on the team.

Alec Burks (Jazz, 12th Overall) 70/SG - Added 12/14

Burks will give the team his best Ronnie Brewer impression, and I would easily start him over Gordon Hayward.  Guess we'll find out whether or not I'm smarter than Tyrone Corbin soon enough.

Markieff Morris (Suns, 13th Overall) 66/PF - Added 12/14
Inside Scoring: B-
Outside Scoring: B-

Post Defense: C+
Ball Handling: F
Rebounding: B

While Markieff's ratings might be accurate, having better ratings than Channing Frye and Hakim Warrick is not.  He won't be the team's starting PF just yet.

Marcus Morris (Rockets, 14th Overall) - 63/PF - Added 12/14
Inside Scoring: B-
Outside Scoring: B-
Perimeter Defense: D
Post Defense: C

It's interesting to me that Marcus was the higher regarded of the Morris' brothers yet rates 3 points behind Markieff.  They have very simiar ratings aside from rebounding, where Marcus trails his brother by a large margin.

Kawhi Leonard (Spurs, 15th Overall) 72/SF - Added 12/13
Inside Scoring: B-
Outside Scoring: D+
Perimeter Defense: B
Post Defense: C+
Ball Handling: C
Rebounding: B

Athleticism: A-
Potential: 68

Spurs fans have been pushing for Leonard to replace Richard Jefferson in the starting lineup since the minute they acquired him.  I however, don't see it that way.  Jefferson has become one of the league's most underrated players.  The corner three has always been important to the San Antonio attack.  RJ isn't a great defender, but he's certainly not a BAD one by any stretch, and he is miles better than Leonard offensively.  The Spurs will hope that Leonard's defense is good enough to make a noticeable difference, and that they can get away with him in a lineup that already includes DaJuan Blair.  I would look for Leonard to be paired in the 2nd unit with Matt Bonner since their deficiencies compliment each other well (or for Bonner to start alongside Leonard).

Nikola Vucevic (76ers, 16th Overall) 57/C - Added 12/14
Inside Scoring: B-
Outside Scoring: B-
Perimeter Defense: F
Post Defense: C+
Ball Handling: D-

Potential: 66

Vucevic is a shooting center, which never translates well with 2K's flawed overall formula for centers.  I was not incredibly high on this pick for Philly as they already have two centers who provide this skill (Hawes and Speights) and were basically just covering their butts in the event Spencer Hawes got an absurd offer sheet the team didn't want to match.  Tough to see Vucevic making much of a contribution his rookie season, but could easily be the team's starter a year from now.

Iman Shumpert (Knicks, 17th Overall) 69/PG - Added 12/14
Inside Scoring: C+
Outside Scoring: C

As I type this, Shumpert expressed happiness w/ his rating via twitter, and I am inclined to agree with him.

 Your steals rating could be higher, but don't worry, you'll show them.

Shumpert should be somewhere between Rajon Rondo and Russell Westbrook's rookie seasons.  He has a lot of sleeper potential and could steal the starting job of either Toney Douglas or Landry Fields.

Chris Singleton (Wizards, 18th Overall)  67/SF - Added 12/14

Outside Scoring: C+

Singleton's ball handling is particularly bad for a SF and makes him more of a tweener than a legit wing player.  Hopefully he can carve out a better career than Renaldo Balkman did.  With only 60 potential, that may not be very likely in 2K.

Tobias Harris (Bucks, 19th Overall) 65/SF - Added 12/14
Inside Scoring: C+
Outside Scoring: B-

While not a rookie observation, Harris is a teenager 10 years younger than Carlos Delfino: a wing who is in his prime, has started the last two years (about to make it three).  These players are both rated 65 overall.  Harris isn't the one with the bad rating here.

Nolan Smith (Trail Blazers, 21st Overall) 71/SG - Added 12/13

Outside Scoring: B

Post Defense: F

I'm puzzled as to why 2K Sports listed Smith as a SG rather than his natural PG position.  He did play SG at Duke before Kyrie Irving's injury, but this was a situation similar to Jrue Holiday playing SG next to Darren Collison at UCLA a few years ago; he is clearly a PG in this league.  Smith rates 67 at PG which is much more reflective of his overall ability (he ranks 26th among SG, only 3 spots behind starter Wesley Matthews who has a stranglehold on the starting job).  Smith is expected to be the backup PG, rather than Armon Johnson who has all the makings of a career 3rd string.

Kenneth Faried (Nuggets, 22nd Overall) 70/PF - Added 12/12

Faried will be an interesting role player, and is honestly one of the more difficult rookies to accurately rate.  He played much of his career as an undersized center, which surely helped pad his gaudy rebound totals.  It remains to be seen just how well Faried's rebounding ability will translate to the NBA, but if it's anything like what he did in college, it is definitely underrated by 2K right now.

Reggie Jackson (Thunder, 24th Overall) 68/PG - Added 12/14

Jackson's ratings might be accurate, but I don't think he is capable of taking out Eric Maynor, who 2K seems to think will be OKC's 4th string.

MarShon Brooks (Nets, 25th Overall) 67/SG - Added 12/13
Inside Scoring: B-

Potential: 72

Refer to my analysis of Jimmer Fredette, take away his playmaking, and you have MarShon Brooks in a nutshell.  Brooks MIGHT have a better future than Anthony Morrow, but he certainly isn't the better shooter.  He's the type of "shot-happy, no-defense" type of player who could find himself out of the league quickly (think Morris Almond).

Jordan Hamilton (Nuggets, 26th Overall) 65/SF - Added 12/12
Inside Scoring: C+
Outside Scoring: B+
Perimeter Defense: C
Post Defense: F
Ball Handling: C+

Potential: 73

Hamilton has all the same qualities of Brooks and could take a similar career path.  The difference is Brooks only has to go through Anthony Morrow right now, while Hamilton will be hard-pressed to take out Danilo Gallinari.

JaJuan Johnson (Celtics, 27th Overall) 66/PF - Added 12/16

Johnson is a pretty good fit on the Celtics since he mimics Kevin Garnett's faceup game, but his slim frame will leave something to be desired on a team desperately seeking interior toughness.  75 Block is great, 55 Post Defense not so much.

Norris Cole (Heat, 28th Overall) 63/PG - Added 12/16
Inside Scoring: C+
Outside Scoring: B
Perimeter Defense: B
Post Defense: F

I think Norris Cole will be a decent backup PG in the league.  He can score a bit and find teammates.  However that isn't exactly what Miami needs out of their PG position.  They need 3pt shooting and defense.  Cole is decidedly average at both.  Still, they could have done worse than replacing Carlos Arroyo with the 28th pick.

Cory Joseph (Spurs, 29th Overall) 59/PG - Added 12/19

Butler is sort of a jack-of-all trades, master of none.  He won't see much playing time in Chicago (especially for a team that apparently can't find room for Keith Bogans on it's roster), but will see playing time if Luol Deng ever gets hurt.

Lee's grades are not available until he recovers from injury.  It is still inexplicable to me why 2K feels the need to injure players when it is a far better gameplay decision to simply move them to the inactive roster (where the player goes whether they have an uneditable injury or not).  Injuries do not carry over to any Associations and are only applicable to Quick Games.

Will you use the new 2K roster as a base for your future roster uploads? Basically, will we get the 2K rookie player models with your ratings or the user-created models?

Christian Schools Shouldn't Exists said...

These players are all overrated, especially Kemba & Nolan. I think you will think very differently on Marshawn, Tristan, & Derrick ounce you see them play.

You forgot Tobias Harris

Hey Rashidi, been following your work for a couple of years now, a big THANK YOU is in order. No one does what you can do, and it's really amazing to see someone's love and effort for the game. Why exactly hasn't 2k picked you up yet? You would think they would know all about you by now don't you? Well, in that case, it might be useless, but I suggest anyone who is actually posting on your blog or twitter needs to send an email to 2k to remind them who is the best in the game here.

Hey guys, do you need Xbox Gold to download Rashidi's roster?

p123 said...

Never mind, I figured this out. Just uploaded the 1-06-12 version, very happy with everything.

What level best plays with Rashidi's stats? All Star with default sliders I assume?

Is Rashidi going to do the Legend Teams? How does Rashidi account for how the legends would fare against the new players without hand checking rules?

Joe Dumars said he absolutely would not be able to guard Jordan with these new rules. How big does that factor into things?

wickedforehand said...

Rubio ratings are so wrong... came #5 (#2 on mock) draft pick on a stronger draft class than this year... And this is a good laugh, Kemba IQ B+
Shumpert IQ B
Rubio IQ B-

Lol, Rubio's real strength is his IQ, passing, and decision making... always a step ahead... great understanding of the game that's is why and because he became a pro at such a young age is why he is drafted at top 5 because he got this feel of the game...

Well he has bad athleticism as in vertical, but his quick and actually a good perimeter defender... No post defense whatsoever though... Bad body, lacks physical strength, occasionally misses an easy a layup, bad shooting % off dribble, but a little bit alright on set shots... awkward shooting form, and not much of an arc on the shot... I based all these on NBA scouting reports showing strengths and weaknesses of a player...

Developers of the game should consult real NBA scouts and not they're own personal opinions...

Sorry for typos and grammatical errors... I did not read my post before just now... can't it edit anymore...
