NBA 2K13 Roster Analysis 4/3/13


2K Sports edited 14 players in today's roster update, exceeding their output for the entire month of March (12).  Unfortunately many of the changes were minor, and some of the major changes make no sense.

As the season draws to a close, it seems many players will go unrated for another year.  Small market teams have been continually ignored while today's update saw the big market Knicks get three players edited.  With a few weeks left I think it is safe to say the roster support has been the weakest feature in NBA 2K13 and one can only hope for changes and a more transparent process in NBA 2K14 from the mysterious 2K Sports and their so-called 2K "Insider".
