Top 5 Shooting Guards in NBA Live 16

Postby Andrew on Thu Sep 10, 2015 12:12 pm

The ratings reveals continue with the shooting guards.

  1. James Harden (95 overall)
  2. Klay Thompson (91 overall)
  3. Kobe Bryant (89 overall)
  4. Jimmy Butler (89 overall)
  5. Dwyane Wade (88 overall)

Solid. Thompson feels a bit high, but that's probably because he was kind of rubbish in the Finals. He has the individual skills to garner a high overall, though.

thomas is too high. they put him that high since he went off that game where he couldnt miss. thats something jimmy butler has never shown. the ability to be white hot. kobe should probably be at 88 and wade at 86. since kobe couldnt both play defense and offense last year. it was one or the other. and even though we now know that shoulder is the reason he was bricking everything. he still has to be downgraded and just wait for the live updates to update his rating. and i'm a kobe super fan from L.A.
klay still shouldnt be 91. there's nothing about klays game that says 90 at all. 89? perfect. solid defender, solid offensive player that might catch fire.

james harden is too high. he should be a 92..

Depends on the scale, and the way overall ratings are calculated. As I've mentioned a few times in the Friday Five, their importance tends to be overblown.

Kobe should've been 95, not Harden.

But seriously though, Kobe should be 88 and Harden should be 92 and Thompson 89.

I won't cast any judgement on player ratings till I have actually played the game and seen how the player plays in comparison to that rating if that makes sense?

When I edit my 2k rosters sometimes a player rating may seem to high but I go on what the player plays like in the game comparing him to his real life counterpart.

It also seems that NBA Live's scale still allows for more 90+ overall players than NBA 2K's does, so context is important.

It's much of a muchness, really, and depends on the way the overall is calculated. Besides, it's not like it can't be corrected in the roster updates.
