Default NBA Live 08 ratings

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

these team rankings are a little off..how is toronto so low.

The only thing I see wrong is Arenas, Nash, and Iverson all being tied, and putting Larry Huges over Caron Butler.

As for the team rankings....those look a bit off. Raptors at 69 is a bit low, and the Heat should not be 80.

God, I was just praying that NBA 08 would do something good, but this is just terrible. Not a single team over 90, not even the champions, and Josh smith at 78 is just plain stupid. Stoudemire and Yao under 90 is also horrible, and the DPOY is a terrible 76. Okafor, Randolph and Jefferson all under 80? UGH! Even though I love Francis, how's he still better than Jamal Crawford and Leandro Barbosa? God, I predict unrealistic scores and absolutely insane numbers.

The Raptors players aren't amazing. Low player rankings will lead to a low team ranking.

Thats why a teamwork/chemistry ranking should be a big part in the game, the reason the raptors do so great on offense is because of their team chemistry and the way they move the ball, there should be a ranking for that.

Agree, Bosh and TJ are the only ones who would crack 80's in Live. Too many Euros I guess.
