NBA 2K13 Week Eight Upcoming Roster Update Discussion

Posted December 27th, 2012 at 8:45 am


Christmas day is perceived by many to be the real start to the NBA season. The Lakers have started to get things together with the return of Steve Nash. The Clippers are the hottest team in the NBA with 14 straight wins. The Heat continue their run of close wins over the Thunder going back to the Finals. The Nets are in a tailspin (Avery Johnson fired) and the Rockets have shown their explosiveness despite inconsistency as the new players gel as a team.

The two big adjustments that need to be made with the next NBA 2K13 roster update is the activation from injured status for Nash and Dirk Nowitzki. The 19-10 Warriors are far exceeding expectations yet have been overlooked in previous updates – they have several players that should get some recognition. Other names that should be seeing increases include Paul George, Damian Lillard, O.J. Mayo, Larry Sanders, J.R. Smith, Austin Rivers, and Greg Monroe. As always leave your thoughts in the comments on what players should get ratings increases or decreases with the next update for NBA 2K13!

  • Bessi

    Yeah where is the love for the Warriors? Has Curry or Lee or anyone got an upgrade this year?

  • NyCrAzY

    NY Knicks feedbacm-

    Increase –

    Carmelo Anthony from a 90 to a 92-93
    Tyson Chandler from a 77 to a 80-85 (very underrated)!
    JR Smith from a 79 to an 80
    Chris Copeland to a 65-69

    Decrease –

    Raymond Felton from a 79 to 78
    Ronnie Brewer from a 72 to 71
    Steve Novak has been slumping lately … so maybe lower his 3 pt a point or two?

    Take out Raymond Felton as he’ll miss 4-6 weeks with pinky surgery.

    Put in Marcus Camby as he’s healthy and playing again.

    & Amare Stoudemire is to return on January 1st vs Portland so I can’t wait for the return of STAT!

  • Why is James Harden still only an 83? Dude needs to be high 80’s.

  • deepen03

    well get rid of Avery first.. lol

  • charles

    The fact that Kamba walker is higher then curry and the same as harden is a joke

  • shawn

    Larry Sanders needs a huge upgrade. Into the mid 70’s just because of his elite defense and underrated athleticism. In his last 13 games, he’s averaging 8.6 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 3.9 blocks, and 78% from the free throw line. He’s far better than Ersan Ilyasova (who needs a downgrade BTW). Ryan Anderson needs get a log overdue upgrade.

    And I disagree that J.R. Smith needs an upgrade. He takes a lot of shots, but he’s shooting 41%. That might look good on the stat sheet, but it does not make him good at basketball and it actually hurts his team’s offense if he isn’t supplementing it with assists. Which leads me to a player who really needs to be downgraded, Austin Rivers. Sorry pasta but Rivers is shooting under 35% from the field and his per minute stats are pretty poor. He’s all upside right now and deserves to be downgraded until he proves he can play at the NBA level.

  • Jeremy

    Austin Rivers sucks why does he deserve a bump? Dudes shooting under 35%. As a Bucks fan Sanders needs a bump and Ersan/Sammy D need to be dropped.

    • Khadeem

      he sure does

    • randdy

      a fellow bucks fan? i didn’t know there was anyone else out there lol. And yes larry needs a boost

  • C-Dubb

    Both Alexy Shved and Nicola Pekovic are in need of a increase in rating.

  • MP3

    The Warriors & Magic are both overdue for upgrades but Hornets’ F Ryan Anderson has been untouched since the game came out. I know people complain about his average defense but he hustles, crashes the boards, & has been the Hornets best player all season & there’s no way teammates Al Farouq Aminu (72) & Austin Rivers (71) should be rated higher than him.

  • Bon

    Why doesn’t Mayo have at least 1 sig skill yet?

  • seahawks253

    i don’t know if this happens to you guys but Raymond felton for some reason is a scoring machine there are a few players that need to be toned down i know every time i played with him or was guarding him he can shoot from anywhere and was a excellent shooter hes a decent player but shooting not so much.

  • Chris
  • Wematanye

    Knowing 2K I wouldnt expect an update until 2013.

  • Wematanye

    Nikola Vucevic & Larry Sanders need huge increases

  • vice707

    corey brewer needs a bump, hes 68 should be 73-75, def needs hus 3pt shot raised

  • thinkkiller

    No one ever talks about greivis Vasquez he averages about 9 asists and 14 points those are great numbers yet hes only a 70 at leaat give him dimer

  • Desnuts7285

    please increase Marcus Morris 3 point rating. His rating is 58 for 3’s evan though he shoots close to 40% on threes. They also need to raise Harden and Linn’s ratings

    • H-Town

      Thank you finally someone who understands, they are not showing rockets players any love, omer asik also need to be updated he is playing like a complete animal and he is extremely under rated, he is only 70 ovr i believe he deserves atleast a 77

    • Khadeem

      how about lance stephenson…his three is a 28 n hes shooting 38% from the three

  • Highpriest333

    Metta World Peace needs an increase!

  • Drew

    What about the clippers bench they all need bost!!!

  • Bryan

    Austin Rivers is shooting 35 percent from the field avg. 7.8 points a game with A PER of 6.59…..he’s statistically one of the worse players in the NBA

  • anonymous

    Could you please add the cyberfaces or what ever they’re called to players like alan anderson, brian roberts, prigioni, etc. its really bothersome

  • Lino

    Andre Drummond deserves a boost. avg 18 min, 7 pts, 7 reb,1 blk

  • Elijah Newsome

    The Atlanta Hawks as a whole… espcially kyle korver and jeff teague. Jeff has stepped up his offensive game this year. kyle has been rebounding and getting steals and actually looking like an nba player this year

  • King jazz

    Can the jazz get some love Marvin Williams Gordon Hayward and denature carrol deserve upgrades

  • Icon131

    2k could learn from EA cause its almost a waste of money cause you can’t play with the people on the team like Drose yea he if hurt but give me the option to put him in ya no it’s just not fair

  • they should increase nikola vucevic, the guy had 29 rebounds 20 points last night, he should have 90 off reb, 87, def reb, 80 mid, 91 inside,

  • Greg

    When is this update gonna be avaliable!?

  • G

    Carmelo should be at least 94 overall

  • Juan

    Austin Rivers clearly is better than a 71 overall he should be around 77 and have finisher skill
