TWO MORE WEEKS UNTIL THE NEW 2K
In case you missed it, the makers of NBA 2k14 released a bunch of player ratings yesterday. This basically means we are that much closer to putting off all of our schoolwork and running our friends in the new game. 2K14 is set to come out in about two weeks, so make sure you put that 60 dollars aside now.
As anticipated, some of the players were pretty underrated. It seems like they don’t give a lot of love to the big men, which breaks my heart because I’m such a low post force at the Rec. Come on, 2K sports!
Below are a few players who I thought weren’t rated properly. The rest of the ratings that were released are below.
Brook Lopez (81) The most consistent player on a solid Nets squad last season, also seemed to play unreal against the Bulls in the playoffs.
Marc Gasol (83) Won Defensive player of the year last season and is arguably one of the best centers in the game.
Roy Hibbert (81) Killed the Heat in the playoffs and the anchor for a defensive squad.
Harrison Barnes (76) Thought his coming out party in the playoffs would have bumped him up to the low 80s.
Steven Adams (58) Kidding, just thought this rating was so low I had to mention it.
Hey guys, it’s Jake now. I’ll look at the overrated.
LeBron James (99) I know, I know, it’s LeBron. But the next highest rating on the list is Kevin Durant at 94! In real life or NBA 2K, I don’t think LeBron is that much better than KD. While he’s obviously the best in the league, LeBron should probably be closer to 97 if the other elites are in the low 90s.
Derrick Rose (92) I’m not making any friends today. All I’m sayin’ is that 92 is pretty damn high for a guy we haven’t seen play in over a year.
Rajon Rondo (90) This is even crazier. Rondo is not two points better than Steph Curry (88) or one point worse than Russell Westbrook (91). He’s a great passer, but struggles to score unless he has a lane to the basket. Curry and Westbrook are far more dominant 2K players. Oh, by the way, Rondo is rehabbing a torn ACL with no timetable for a return. WTF, 2K sports?
Kobe Bryant (93) Maybe I’m wrong and Kobe will have the greatest return from an Achilles tear ever, but it’s a big jump for 2K sports to assume that. A healthy Kobe is maybe a 93.
DON’T FORGET 2 WEEKS!!!
