NBA 2k14 drops on October 1st, but for all of you impatient 76ers fans, here is a table of the official 76ers player ratings for the game.[table “1” not found /]
(Technically Tony Wroten and Darius Morris weren’t on the 76ers roster when they were shown on the Operation Sports page, but my guess is that they will be patched in with the first roster update)
As you can see, this team is going to be a challenge for even the most seasoned 2k gamers, but if you like a challenge, or want to put yourself in GM Sam Hinkie’s shoes to try and bring the Sixers back to NBA Finals, then this is your team.
Here are my first impressions of the roster:
- Nerlens Noel is a solid 72. We can’t see his potential here, but he will be the backbone of your team, especially on the defensive end.
- The game hates the 76ers other rookie. Michael Carter-Williams definitely has some learning to do, but does he really deserve a 56 defensive rating? The developers must not believe in his transition from Syracuse’s match-up zone to the man-heavy NBA.
- Spencer Hawes is the best offensive weapon on the team. SPENCER HAWES! With an A- outside shooting rating, you’ll have to find creative ways to get him on the floor, wither as a stretch 4 next to Noel, or as the 5 when you bring Noel off the bench.
- For the past 3 years, 2k Sports has rated Thad Young and Evan Turner between 72-76, with A level potential, and it looks like they are following that trend again. Will this finally be the year that the two veterans live up to 2k’s expectations or will they come back as 75’s in 2k15?
This team will get murdered online, but I’m looking forward to creating my Sixers Dynasty in Association mode. Check back throughout the year, maybe I’ll update you on my struggles.
