    Posted January 14th, 2016 at 11:00 am 1 Comment ╗
    For the first time since late November Steph Curry does not stand alone as the highest rated player in NBA 2K16. In today's roster update LeBron James moved up a point to 95 and now shares that honor with him. From November 5 to November 26 the two were tied at 94, and prior to that LeBron had been the top rated player in the NBA 2K series for over five years. LeBron was boosted in all of the shooting categories. In the six games played so far this month he's shooting 58% from the field. ...
  • First NBA 2K16 roster update of 2016
    Posted January 7th, 2016 at 11:00 am 13 Comments ╗
    Early on during the season NBA 2K16 was updating its rosters several times a week. The pace has slowed considerably however since then, particularly in the last month due to the holidays, and today the first update since Christmas arrived. Kawhi Leonard has moved up a point to 92 Overall, making him the third highest rated player in the game. He began the season at 87 but has climbed due to performance that would have him in an MVP conversation if it weren't for Steph Curry. He's averagin...
  • NBA 2K16 holiday roster update details
    Posted December 29th, 2015 at 9:45 am 9 Comments ╗
    Roster updates for NBA 2K16 have understandably tailed off somewhat through the holidays. The most recent to come out included some movement of note however. Stephen Curry still resides in all-time great territory but has dropped a point to 95 Overall and remains as the best current day player in the game. Curry has cooled off a tad, relatively speaking that is, after an incredible start to the season. Since December 6 he's averaged "just" 26 points per game and has shot 37% from three-p...
  • Competition with Pro-Am Mode in NBA 2K16 being held in early 2016
    Posted December 22nd, 2015 at 9:00 am 5 Comments ╗
    2K Sports today announced an online competition to launch in early 2016 utilizing the 2K Pro-Am Mode that debuted with NBA 2K16. Details are scarce but there will be a "huge cash prize and trip to the 2016 NBA Finals" on the line. The company is referring to this as "eSports" but given that there is no level playing field - people can pay to level their characters up and max them out - it isn't going to be considered as such. The idea here seems to be primarily about giving people who wa...

    As far as post-release patches go, NBA 2K16 has now received three of them, with the latest having gone out today on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The first patch was primarily intended to get Pro-Am working, while the second one had wide reach influencing pretty much every mode in the game with changes based on community feedback.

    Steph Curry is understandably getting a lot of attention to his NBA 2K16 ratings, as he now stands among the all-time greats based on his current positioning, but there are many other players exceeding expectations this season as well as those who have fallen short of them. In a piece on Sporting News this week I went through the players who have moved up the most and those that have fallen most in NBA 2K16 since the start of the season. Another roster update for NBA 2K16 went out today a...

    The start to the season for the Warriors and reigning MVP Stephen Curry has been unprecedented and unbelievable, and now NBA 2K16 is beginning to represent that. Ratings keep on rising and for Curry that means reaching a level that in the history of the league only includes a few players. Now rated 96 Overall, Curry is tied with peak Bill Russell, Larry Bird, Shaquille O'Neal, and 1988-89 Michael Jordan. The only players above him now are peak Magic Johnson, LeBron James and Kareem Abdul-...
