The Real NBA 2K14 Preview Roster


It took a considerable amount of time and effort, but I have finally completed my NBA 2K14 preview roster for NBA 2K13.

These are NOT official ratings for NBA 2K14 (though they are surely better than what 2K Sports will churn out).  I will post those ratings when they are released, so check back for further updates!

Feel free to leave a comment or question about the roster and I will try to answer it to the best of my ability.  Enjoy the roster!

No Dennis Schroder ????

Rashidi said...

He's in there, was just missing from the list (added him).

Michael Sweeney said...

Thanks for all the hard work Rashidi. Your ratings ARE far better than 2K's. Wish they'd hire you instead of this bozo they got in charge of the ratings right now. Lets hope the new "Living Rosters" feature will make ratings and tendencies more like yours in 2K14.

Weak. Kelly Olynyk 66? lol what's your justification?

Joshua Foster said...

Dion waiters is more around 75, 76. Too low. Sergey Karasev should be around 67.

Rashidi said...

Olynyk is a terrible rebounder and defensive player, as his athleticism isn't exactly NBA caliber. There is a wee-bit more to the NBA than putting up numbers in summer league.

2K's formula for centers doesn't really care that Olynyk's a good shooter, and he should really rate 1-2 points higher under a better structured formula.

Rashidi said...

Dion Waiters would rate higher if his defense weren't abominable.

indymediaemcee said...

I'll talk to you by all star break about Olynyk.

Leonard Agnew said...

Chauncey Billups?

meowmixer445 said...

Paul George at an 82? Surprising.

zak Baris said...

Zeller better than Anthony Bennett? Thats a stretch...

Rashidi said...

Kelly Olynyk
Inside Scoring: B
Outside Scoring: B
Perimeter Defense: D+
Post Defense: C-
Ball Handling: D
Rebounding: C+
Basketball IQ: B-
Athleticism: D+

Average Center
Inside Scoring: B
Outside Scoring: D
Perimeter Defense: C
Post Defense: B+

Ball Handling: D
Rebounding: B
Basketball IQ: B+
Athleticism: C+


Olynyk is a good scorer but his defense/rebounding are atrocious for a center, and these are arguably the most important attributes for a center to have in today's NBA. There is a reason he went 13th in a weak draft.

Rashidi said...

Cody Zeller (73)
Inside Scoring: B
Outside Scoring: F
Perimeter Defense: C-
Post Defense: C
Ball Handling: D+
Rebounding: C+
Basketball IQ: B-
Athleticism: B+

Anthony Bennett (72)
Inside Scoring: B
Outside Scoring: B
Perimeter Defense: D
Post Defense: C
Ball Handling:C-
Rebounding: B-
Basketball IQ: C+
Athleticism: B

As I have stated many times before, 2K doesn't value Outside Scoring for PF/C (and to a lesser extent Ball Handling) nearly as much as it should.

In the case of Bennett, he is brought down by a deservedly low Defensive Awareness grade. It's important to remember he was a huge stretch at #1 Overall and was projected to go 7th/8th in most drafts.

M0NTiG0 said...

Cousins's mid range should be higher, maybe 80s

Jeff Gaines said...

Demar Derozan scores 18 a game, top 5 for SG, but he is a 75.. yet manu ginobili has a horrible year and is a shell of his former self but he is an 86? and O.J. Mayo has another inefficient year and he still is higher than Derozan? i don't see that..

Jeff Gaines said...

How is Khawi Leonard higher that Paul George? In what area is Leonard better?
Defense? No. Scoring? No? 3 Point? No. Rebounding? No.

HeMan27 said...

Rashidi...

Would you give me all the attribute ratings for the Jazz? They're going to better than 2k's roster gives them credit for, and I would like to play with them more realistically. Thank you

Dena'i Jackson said...

Are you going to upload this roster on the nba 2k14 servers?
