    Haha Live is just dumb..

    Hughes...80?
    TJ at the same level as Mike James?
    Boozer so low?
    T-wolves higher than the Raps?
    Nets ahead of Denver, Jazz, Bulls, Celtics?

    Yup just Live being Live.

    Foye was a 80 or so in 2k7, and that was his rookie year.

    goddamnit people. Overall rankings are useless. This is why Madden is so much better than Live. Because in Madden, you're ranked high if you're good at your position. In NBA Live, you're ranked high if you're an overall good player.

    One dimensional players will not be getting love. Aka, players like Kevin Martin, Leandro Barbosa, TJ Ford, Carlos Boozer, Melo, Okafor, Camby, Crawford...

    Some players might be overrated but you have to look at the whole picture. Larry Hughes is a talented scorer, very athletic, good rebounder for a guard, average passer, and a decent stealer. Don't forget about his 22p/6rb/5as/3stl season he had 2 years ago. Even last year 15/4/4 is respectable.

    PSH gtfo now, just go!

    His 15 4 and 4 if it is even that high is on 40% shooting. As the 2nd almost 3rd option.

    He sucks.

    =The Top 20s

    Centers

    1. Tim Duncan: 91
    2. Amare Stoudemire: 88
    3. Shaquille O'Neal: 87
    4. Yao Ming: 86
    5. Ben Wallace: 78
    6. Brad Miller: 76
    7. Zydrunas Ilgauskas: 75
    8. Marcus Camby: 75
    9. Greg Oden: 75
    10. Tyson Chandler: 75
    11. Andrew Bogut: 75
    12. Chris Kaman: 73
    13. Nene: 73
    14. Eddy Curry: 73
    15. Alonzo Mourning: 73
    16. Jamaal Magloire: 72
    17. Andris Biedrins: 72
    18. Mehmet Okur: 72
    19. Samuel Dalembert: 72
    20. Kurt Thomas: 71

    Overrated/underrated: Duncan's skills might not be the flashy, in-your-face kind you want to highlight in a videogame, but damn, only a 91 for a man who just led his team to another title and is one of the best players of his generation? Another crazy number that jumps out at me is Biedrins and his 72 overall. I know he's still got a lot of work to do, but to say he's the same as Jamaal Magloire and only 1 point higher than Kurt Thomas is like a slap in the face to everything good that has ever come out of Latvia (Sandis Ozolins and Soviet protest songs rule!).

    Power Forwards

    1. Kevin Garnett: 92
    2. Dirk Nowitzki: 90
    3. Elton Brand: 89
    4. Shawn Marion: 88
    5. Chris Bosh: 86
    6. Jermaine O'Neal: 85
    7. Pau Gasol: 85
    8. Dwight Howard: 85
    9. Rasheed Wallace: 84
    10. Lamar Odom: 83
    11. Carlos Boozer: 81
    12. Antawn Jamison: 80
    13. Emeka Okafor: 79
    14. Zach Randolph: 78
    15. Al Jefferson: 77
    16. Charlie Villanueva: 76
    17. Kenyon Martin: 76
    18. Al Harrington: 75
    19. Channing Frye: 75
    20. Shareef Abdur-Rahim: 75

    Overrated/underrated: How is Carlos Boozer the 11th best power forward in the NBA? Dude is an absolute beast down in the paint. Dirk at 90 must be feeling the sting of choking in the playoffs. Regular season Dirk is more like a 95.

    Small Forwards

    1. LeBron James: 96
    2. Paul Pierce: 89
    3. Carmelo Anthony: 86
    4. Josh Howard: 85
    5. Rashard Lewis: 84
    6. Ron Artest: 84
    7. Andre Iguodala: 84
    8. Richard Jefferson: 82
    9. Andrei Kirilenko: 82
    10. Luol Deng: 80
    11. Tayshaun Prince: 79
    12. Gerald Wallace: 79
    13. Ricky Davis: 79
    14. Corey Maggette: 79
    15. Josh Smith: 78
    16. Kevin Durant: 78
    17. Boris Diaw: 76
    18. Andres Nocioni: 76
    19. Peja Stojakovic: 76
    20. Danny Granger: 76


    Overrated/underrated: Scary thought to the rest of the league: Lebron is still getting better. I don't know how Ricky Davis deserves the same ranking as Prince, Wallace, and Maggette, not to mention a higher number than Durant and Josh Smith. Does Ricky have a cousin working on the game?

    Shooting Guards

    1. Kobe Bryant: 96
    2. Dwyane Wade: 93
    3. Tracy McGrady: 92
    4. Vince Carter: 88
    5. Ray Allen: 87
    6. Manu Ginobili: 86
    7. Jason Richardson: 85
    8. Jason Terry: 85
    9. Michael Redd: 85
    10. Joe Johnson: 84
    11. Rip Hamilton: 82
    12. Ben Gordon: 80
    13. Larry Hughes: 80
    14. Caron Butler: 78
    15. Steve Francis: 77
    16. Leandro Barbosa: 77
    17. Jerry Stackhouse: 76
    18. Randy Foye: 76
    19. Jamal Crawford: 75
    20. Raja Bell: 75


    Overrated/underrated: Joe Johnson should feel a bit slighted with his 84, and if you watched any basketball last year and feel that Larry Hughes should have a better rating than Barbosa or Randy Foye, you deserve to get smacked in the head by Rafer Alston.

    Point Guards

    1. Gilbert Arenas: 91
    2. Steve Nash: 91
    3. Allen Iverson: 91
    4. Baron Davis: 88
    5. Tony Parker: 87
    6. Chris Paul: 87
    7. Chauncey Billups: 86
    8. Jason Kidd: 85
    9. Deron Williams: 83
    10. Mike Bibby: 83
    11. Stephon Marbury: 83
    12. Kirk Hinrich: 83
    13. Jameer Nelson: 79
    14. Devin Harris: 79
    15. Raymond Felton: 77
    16. Andre Miller: 77
    17. Mike James: 76
    18. TJ Ford: 76
    19. Michael Conley: 75
    20. Damon Stoudamire: 74


    Overrated/underrated: When Gilbert signed to be on the cover, I guess he made sure to add the clause where he was the highest rated player at his position. Cover or not, putting him in the same class as Nash is a bit much. I also don't think Chris Paul deserves to be 4 points ahead of Deron Williams at this point. After watching Williams in the playoffs, I might even give him the nod over CP3 heading into the season.

    While we're at it, let's look at EA's ranking for every team heading into the season.

    1. Mavericks: 87
    2. Suns: 87
    3. Rockets: 84
    4. Spurs: 83
    5. Pistons: 82
    6. Nets: 82
    7. Nuggets: 81
    8. Bulls: 80
    9. Heat: 80
    10. Celtics: 80
    11. Cavaliers: 77
    12. Lakers: 77
    13. Clippers: 77
    14. Kings: 77
    15. Jazz: 76
    16. Bobcats: 76
    17. Hawks: 75
    18. Knicks: 75
    19. Warriors: 74
    20. Wizards: 72
    21. Hornets: 72
    22. Bucks: 72
    23. Timberwolves: 71
    24. Blazers: 70
    25. 76ers: 70
    26. Grizzlies: 70
    27. Sonics: 69
    28. Raptors: 69
    29. Magic: 69
    30. Pacers: 6

    Okay seriously people. There is no need to say "EA screwed this up" "they did this, they did that" "* > *". Seriously, shut up. They're just numbers! I mean really, how do overall team rankings screw up an entire game? None of you should be making any judgement, at least not until the full game, or demo is released.
