NBA 2K14 Roster Analysis 11/1/13

2K Sports released another roster update and early on they seem to have committed to small, semi-daily updates.  Let's hope they eventually get to editing more than one player per update, though.



Michael Carter-Williams
73 Overall (+4)
71 Med (+5)
70 3pt (+10)
83 Pass (+3)
82 Steal (+5)
74 OffAwr (+4)
76 DefAwr (+5)
71 Hustle (+15)
89 Potential (+4)

MCW had one of the best debuts for a rookie in recent memory and 2K jumped on that right away.  MCW has already been edited by 2K twice already; they had him at a lowly 61 overall in their default roster, which looks all the more foolish now than it did one month ago.  Expect to see more edits in the near future as he's currently 6-11 from 3pt through his first two games.


No missing players were added, and it's looking like some key players will be missing from next-gen versions in two weeks.

Vitor Faverani is the Celtics starting center, and posted 12 points, 18 rebounds, and 6 blocked shots tonight.  He is missing from the game despite having signed three months ago.  He stands out as the most egregious omission thus far.

There's another official roster update out (11-02-13). 2K corrected 3 more teams starting five and more injuries update. Not sure, if there's more changes.

I'm guessing this is for PS3 only because the file isn't available on 360 yet.

2K uploaded two rosters on 11/1 FWIW.

Actually PC

Hello Rashidi,

I am a PS3 user so that means I cannot enjoy your amazing roster, however I often check your
Blog just to see your posts. I am currently using the opening day roster from 2K and editing all nba players’ accessories as I am extremely picky about these things. However, I want to make sure that I am updating all the ratings updated from NBA 2K, so for example, the newest roster released in NOV had MCW updated, and by doing that I use your blog. Therefore, I am wondering if you will continue posting ALL the players that are updated and where they are updated in their ratings in your blog?

Thanks in advance!
