New NBA 2K16 Roster Update Changes Many Player Ratings

by Damian Seeto


2K Games has now released a new roster update to NBA 2K16. As a result of the changes made, this means several NBA stars’ player ratings have been altered.

Since NBA 2K16 is to emulate real life, some players’ ratings have gone up or down. Depending how the player does on the court, this affects their performance in the video game too. More players increased their rating as opposed to going down.

These are the players that have increased their rating: “Kevin Durant +1 (93), John Wall +1 (90). Draymond Green +2 (89). Chris Paul +1 (89), Andre Drummond +1 (88), DeMarcus Cousins +1 (88), Jimmy Butler +2 (88), Carmelo Anthony +1 (87), Dwyane Wade +1 (86), DeMar DeRozan +1 (86), Pau Gasol +1 (86), Chris Bosh +1 (85), Nikola Vucevic +1 (84), Reggie Jackson +1 (84), Karl-Anthony Towns +1 (83), Kemba Walker +2 (83), Gordon Hayward +1 (82), Avery Bradley +1 (81), Manu Ginobili +1 (81), J.J. Redick +1 (80) and Kobe Bryant +1 (78)

These are the players that had their rating decrease: “Tim Duncan -2 (83), C.J. McCollum -1 (82), Marc Gasol -2 (82), Rudy Gay -1 (81) and Andrew Wiggins -1 (80)”

It’s interesting to note that 2K Games made far more changes to its roster than EA Sports did in NBA Live 16. It goes to show how thorough and dedicated 2K Games is with its NBA 2K franchise. Either that or 2K is more strict in terms of how it rates its players.
