Default NBA 2k13 Rating failures

Whats a rating a player has that's either overrated or underrated?



Bill Russell's speed is given a 78 (I think)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8Woc6rabeE

While the play at 4:06 shows he deserves at least an 88-94 IMO

If Russell is a 88-94, then prime Shaq deserves a 99.

Shaq was much faster than Russell. Either way, you have to admit a rating of 78 speed for a Center in 2K13 is already way above average...

Well, according to jlauber Russell was a Ben Wallace so what was Ben rated in his prime?

Um, no. That's already insanely high for a center. He isn't Russell Westbrook.

Umm, Jared Sullinger's post offense is 60 something

Also, Paul Pierce is only an 83 and does'nt have spot up shooter as a signature skill

I think my 3 pt specialist PG started with 80 speed. Bill Russell ain't faster than him

I remember 2k8, I couldn't play with Larry Bird, he was a big liability because they made him move in slow motion where I couldn't take advantage of any of his otherwise high offensive ratings. It's an example of things getting exaggerated, in this case that Bird was un athletic. I mean I could dominate with lesser players but not with Bird.

That video is pretty good. I like how you can see the beginnings of a lot of modern moves. Behind the back fakes a la Iverson or Rondo.

Have you seen how fast a rating of 78 runs down the court full sprint in NBA 2k? It's nowhere near as fast as the clip I just showed possibly the same year they have him in the game even

It is a lot faster than average, but if you're going to make him run about as fast as he does in the video it needs to be about that high. That's just my opinion though. And it's not like it matters

Bledsoe's a 81, Jamal's not even a 80.

@ people saying centers aren't that fast. i'm assuming you guys are thinking that because they're big. linemen in the nfl run faster than some guards in the nba, just saying.

No they don't. MAYBE one or two lineman who are athletic freaks.
