NBA 2K14 Roster Analysis 11/26/13 - Featuring the worst rating edit in 2K history

Get ready for a facepalm.

For a more comprehensive look at how far behind 2K's rosters are...
The NBA 2K14 Living Checklist - EVERYTHING wrong with NBA 2K14's roster

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PLAYERS ON THE WRONG TEAMS

Luc Mbah a Moute (71/SF) - Kings (traded to Timberwolves 11/26)
Derrick Williams (72/PF) - Timberwolves (traded to Kings 11/26)

2K uploaded THREE rosters on 2K Share (4:14am, 7:15am, 1:55pm).

None of them included this trade.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RATING EDITS

Evan Turner (76ers)
80 Overall (+5)
72 3pt (-9)
82 FT (+8)
61 Pass (+3)
64 Steal (+3)
52 OffReb (+9)
75 DefReb (+3)
79 OffAwr (+12)
63 DefAwr (+4)
75 Consistency (+45)

Ironically enough, Turner finally deserves the ratings 2K gave him all of last season.
(But seriously guys, 30 Consistency?)

Derrick Rose (Bulls)
90 Overall (-1)
94 OffAwr (-5)
65 Consistency (-5)
68 Durability (-14)

2K raised Rose's durability rating (11/20 roster) two days before his season-ending knee injury.

Good call.

Kyrie Irving (Cavaliers)
87 Overall (-2)
25 Shoot In Traffic (-51)

This player killing typo/glitch/error sums up what a laughingstock 2K's rosters have been the past 10 years.  How do you butcher the Cavaliers' best player and not even notice?  This surely couldn't have been intentional, but then you never really know with 2K Sports and the 2K Insider.  This is the definition of incompetence right here.

Good luck using Kyrie and the Cavs online now!  Curious minds will now get to playtest a player with 95 Layup, Finisher/Acrobat, and the lowest possible SIT!

Anthony Bennett (Cavaliers)
73 Overall (-3)
61 3pt (-8)
72 OffPost (-3)
68 DefPost (-2)
68 OffAwr (-5)
57 DefAwr (-4)
30 Consistency (-15)

The first overall pick of the 2013 draft is off to the worst start of any #1 pick in NBA history.

Paul George (Pacers)
91 Overall (+2)
92 Inside (+4)
94 Layup (+4)
89 Dunk (+4)
79 SOD (+1)
92 OffAwr (+2)
90 DefAwr (+4)
90 Consistency (+5)
97 Stamina (+2)
86 Speed (+2)
98 Potential (+3)

Is this the 3rd or 4th Paul George edit of the season?  I've lost count.  It'd be great if 2K got around to the other 400-or-so NBA players.

Anthony Davis (Pelicans)
85 Overall (+6)
81 Close (+4)
68 Medium (+4)
78 FT (+3)
93 Block (+4)
76 Steal (+3)
72 OBD (+2)
89 OffReb (+7)
84 DefReb (+1)
71 OffPost (+3) - Saw it coming; completely unwarranted. 0.55 PPP this year, 0.53 last year (BAD).
85 DefPost (+3)
73 OffAwr (+18)
89 DefAwr (+4)
75 Consistency (+20)
50 Strength (+3)
96 Potential (+3)

Believe it or not, he's still not the top rated player on the Pelicans.  Jrue Holiday maintains his absurd 88 Overall rating.

James Harden (Rockets)
87 Overall (-1)
70 OBD (-7)
68 DefAwr (-7)
90 Consistency (+5)

Harden's defense has been the gift that keeps on giffing (though in fairness it's only his off-ball defense i.e. awareness, he's been fine on-ball.

Eric Bledsoe (Suns)
84 Overall (+2)
65 Medium (+4)
76 3pt (-5)
81 FT (+2)
70 Shoot In Traffic (+2)
80 Pass (+5)
84 Steal (-8)
78 OffAwr (+10)
80 Consistency (+5)
59 Strength (+8)
85 Potential (+1)

Pretty amusing that Bledsoe hasn't played in 11 days and got a ratings boost.

P.J. Tucker (Suns)
69 Overall (+3)
79 3pt (+44)

Long overdue. Tucker shot 22-70 (31%) from 3pt range last year.  It took an efficiency explosion (20-39 shooting, 51%) for 2K to notice.

Klay Thompson (Warriors)
76 Overall (+1)
90 3pt (+4)

How many fans at home would rather have J.R. Smith (84), Eric Gordon (83), O.J. Mayo (82), Jason Terry (77), Dion Waiters (76), or Ben Gordon (76) than Klay Thompson?  What's that?  You mean to tell me NONE of you?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INCORRECT INJURIES
Tobias Harris (75/SF) - Magic (Returned 11/24)
Shane Larkin (70/PG) - Mavericks (Returned 11/18) - Healthy in last week's roster!

MISSING INJURIES
Matt Barnes (75/SF) - Clippers (Last played 11/18)
Raymond Felton (79/PG) - Knicks (Last played 11/16)
Deron Williams (88/PG) - Nets (Last played 11/20)
Brook Lopez (80/C) - Nets (Last played 11/15)
Jason Terry (77/SG) - Nets (Last played 11/20)
Chauncey Billups (81/PG) - Pistons (Last played 11/12)
Eric Bledsoe (84/PG) - Suns (Last played 11/15)

What's the point of injuries if 2K isn't going to keep up?  How did they screw up Larkin?  The rosters are just getting sloppy now despite less time being spent on them than ever before.

I smell a conspiracy.. they maybe did it to show up Lives cover man. But if they can do that so easily why can't they get the ratings right? Is it politics?

It might be about politics. It's pretty hard to say. 2k makes one great move and then misses out on the next 2-3 moves. It's weird. Paul George has gotten a update every week. But he's been going banana crazy lol

F_Rod said...

Rashidi, are you going to write more updates on Official NBA 2K14 Roster Update?

Pole said...

Living Roster is bbbbbbbbbeautifuuuul XD

200?
250?
Fantastic............... or maybe not!!!!
