2013 NBA Draft

Compare to NBA 2K13's Rookies

POINT GUARD
9. Trey Burke (73)
11. Michael Carter-Williams (61) - Worst PG in the draft? Darius Morris will start in Association.
17. Dennis Schroeder (68)
18. Shane Larkin (70)
30. Nemanja Nedovic (63)
34. Isaiah Canaan (69)
36. Ray McCallum (66)
38. Nate Wolters (68)
56. Peyton Silva (66) - The undersized version of MCW is 5 points better?

SHOOTING GUARD
2. Victor Oladipo (76)
7. Ben McLemore (72)
8. Kentavius Caldwell-Pope (70)
10. C.J. McCollum (72)
24.Tim Hardaway Jr (69)
25. Reggie Bullock (64) - He's a small forward.
29. Archie Goodwin (68) - Did they ignore his scouting report? Raw 19 year-old.
31. Allan Crabbe (64)
33. Carrick Felix (68)
35. Glen Rice (66)
41. Jamaal Franklin (65)
43. Ricky Ledo (69) - Played no college ball, 19 years old, last SG selected, and a top 10 rookie

SMALL FORWARD
3. Otto Porter (74) - Apparently the only small forward 2K thinks will be any good.
14. Shabazz Muhammad (65)
15. Giannis Adetokunbo (60)
19. Sergey Karasev (60)
20. Tony Snell (62)
23. Solomon Hill (62)
26. Andre Roberson (65) - He's a power forward.
37. Tony Mitchell (58) - See above.

POWER FORWARD
1. Anthony Bennett (76) - Will start over Tristan Thompson in Association
4. Cody Zeller (68) - GM Rich Cho compared to LaMarcus Aldridge. Ricky Ledo must be next Harden.
48. Ryan Kelly (X) - Signed after roster cutoff date
49. Erik Murphy (56)
51. Romero Osby (X) - Signed after roster cutoff date

CENTER
5. Alex Len (57) - NBA 2K: where lottery centers are considerably less valuable than 2nd round guards.
6. Nerlens Noel (72) - Will start over Spencer Hawes in Association (honestly questionable).
12. Steven Adams (57) - See above.
13. Kelly Olynyk (62) - The lowest rated Celtic. Lower than Donte Greene. That's just embarrassing.
21. Gorgui Dieng (64)
22. Mason Plumlee (61)
27. Rudy Gobert (53)
39. Jeff Withey (60) - Apparently 2nd round centers are more valuable than lottery centers as well.

As with all NBA 2K ratings in the history of ever, these are pretty bad and will need a lot of tweaking.

Bennett, Noel, and Burke look like the Rookie of the Year candidates in Association mode since they are the only ones rated high enough to start for their teams (Oladipo's rating is tied w/ Afflalo).

Interesting that 2K Sports has Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams in NBA 2K14 when they only signed contracts TODAY.  That means they weren't a part of the NBA Players Association, and thus couldn't give out their likeness to an NBA game.  Hasn't that been 2K's excuse for every other player whose been missing over the past decade?  Such as missing international rookies like Luigi Datome and Vitor Faverani?

  1. So will Romero Osby eventually be on the game or no?

  2. If Osby makes the Magic roster, 2K will add him to the game (eventually).
