When NBA 2K13 hit the shelves last year most NBA 2K fans thought that it was the greatest game ever made and nothing would ever come close.
Well, they were wrong, because at the start of this month NBA 2k14 was released and it was better than any other 2K game ever made.
With the new pro stick, the game is taken to another dimension where it actually feels like you are playing. The game is terrific with little to improve, but one of the worst things is the ratings in the game.
Lebron James is a 99, which means he's near perfect, and that is completely fine if they were going to rate other players a little high as well. But when Lebron is 99 and players like Kyle Korver are 64 it isn't as consistent as it should be.
Let me give you another comparison between two people which isn't they way it should be.
Andrew Bynum who missed out all of last season is rated 86 and Joakim Noah, who was an All-Star last season, is 82.
In fact all of the All-Star caliber centres, other than Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum are 82. Marc Gasol, Al Horford, Joakim Noah and Chris Bosh. It seems the more popular the player is the higher he's rated.
Jarret Jack is kept under the 80 mark and he was arguably the best sixth man in the league.
Victor Oladipo and Anthony Bennett are over rated, both being put at 76 while players who have proven their worth like Klay Thompson who is only 73 are lower than them.
Harrison Barnes, Jonas Valanciunas, Kyle Korver are all lower than the rookies. Probably the most under rated player was Kyle Korver, sure he doesn't deserve to be 80 or over but he is a starter for the Hawks and is one of the best three point shooters in the game, he is only rated 64.
Under rookies like Shabazz Mohammed.
The ratings for NBA should be modified and thankfully the ratings will change depending on how the player's going in real life, so a lot of player's will be increasing their ratings and a lot will be decreasing theirs.
