The NBA 2K14 Living Checklist - EVERYTHING wrong with NBA 2K14 rosters

Consider this a "Living Checklist" for 2K Sports' "Living Rosters".  I've listed all obvious errors 2K has in their rosters and this post will be updated throughout the season.

2K Sports isn't entirely at fault here as they are paying Stats Inc to take care of this and are being robbed blind.  Instead we are getting semi-daily hot/cold streaks that absolutely no one gives a damn about as they have minimal effect on the game.

Whoa! Lol.. I smell a conspiracy. It doesn't make sense why after over a decade they just can't get it right.

Incorrect Position: Nando De Colo (should be SG), Jeff Ayres (should be C), Marco Belinelli(should be SF)

Grant Shih said...

I think DWade is fine with 91 if considering he is playing with LBJ with 18-5-5 and 50% FG and his efforts on defense.

Harden is a little bit overrated due to his poor defense recently(he seems reluctant to defend...) ...maybe a 85 overall with 9X in offense and 7X in defense.

Rashidi said...

Ayres splits his time at PF and C. He is a natural PF so that should get precedence.

Belinelli has likewise split his time between SG/SF. He is only a SF when on the court with Ginobili. I personally have Green at SF because he's sliding over anytime Ginobili/Belinelli are in, which is fairly often.

Nando has barely played but has only done so in 3-guard alignments. You can list him at either position, as long as it's not PG (I personally have Cory Joseph at SG).

Spurs in my roster
PG: Parker, Mills
SG: Ginobili, Belinelli, Joseph
SF: Leonard, Green, De Colo
PF: Diaw, Bonner, Ayres
C: Duncan, Splitter, Baynes

They have an interesting rotation because they essentially start big (two centers, two small forwards) and then go small (two shooting guards, two power forwards).

Kenrick Altidor said...

You think Zach Randolph overrated?.. Why is that? Just asking...

Rashidi said...

This is a living document that will be updated about once a week.

Randolph has been huge in the three games since November 15th, salvaging his season.

Nov 15-18th: 25.3 ppg, 12.0 rpg (65 FG%)
Prior: 12.6 ppg, 8.6 rpg (49 FG%)

His production to press time had been considerably underwhelming and certainly not deserving of his high rating. Since then, he's obviously turned it around and can be removed from the list.

LucasMcStacy said...

Are you going to post at least basic ratings for the players who are under and overrated on this checklist?

Tbuc4055 said...

Isnt kendall marshall underrated now or is it to soon?

Дмитрий Баскаков said...

Hello! Thaks for your job! how I can download your last roster? Offline link. please! :)

Vin Laureola said...

Nba2k14 official rosters.. Most of the players have wrong shoe brands..
Deandre jordan - zoom soldier 7 since pre season not UA..
D.fisher - nike kD not adidas
S.dalembert - nike not peak

K.perkins wearing kd shoes but once you try to change them it would say "player could only wear adidas brand"

Have you tried playing association where after playing the all-star weekend and you go through the "weekly practice" menu all dates are with the all-star weekend logo and can't schedule practice unless you go into calendar mode..

Please post the ratings changes of the last 2k update.I am a offline player.I saw on a video that Andre Drummond and Lance Stephenson had increases in their ratings.

Hey guys,

I'd appreciate so much if any of you could answer what I thought was a very simple question, but couldn't find an answer to on the web.

I really want to start Association mode with "Today" option On, starting from current records stats and everything, but having the real injuries to players. I tried everything, I load Rashidi's roster and start the Association but Derrick Rose & Co are not injured...
Is it really not possible having the real injuries starting an Association from today's date? It seems so damn stupid...

Thanks

F_Rod said...

The Hawks are the #1 underrated team in NBA 2K14. Two starters with 64 overall and I'm playing on the PS4. Damn, and the Suns are 2nd. This is really bothering especially playing a regular season.

djsdarrel said...

I was wondering would you consider creating a "Historic Player" signature list? For those whom have historic players on their "MyTeam" roster? Thanks!
