    The only thing more scary than the leap that George took over the course of this past season is the fact that he just turned 23. While Miami had the last laugh in Game 7 of the ECF, George let it be known that he may be the next chosen one to challenge the King’s throne once LeBron passes his prime. George proved himself to not only be the league’s Most Improved Player, but to be arguably one of the league’s top players in his early career.

    Lance proved to be a vital piece to Indiana’s success this past season, especially in the postseason. Head Coach Frank Vogel often relied on the New York City guard to provide the Pacers with the additional scoring punch necessary to put Indiana over the top. While George, Hibbert, Granger and West are higher on the food chain at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Stephenson’s worth is not too far behind. A once D-League fringe player with a 58 rating, Stephenson could potentially have the most drastic jump of all players in this year’s video game.

    Woah, 92 seems pretty high. I'd be ecstatic if he actually ended up there, but I still see him in the high 80's (88ish)

    My ratings would be as follows:

    PG: 99
    Roy Hibbert 98
    David West 98
    Danny Granger 98
    Lance 98
    George Hill 98

    Fair?

    I think you're being a bit of a homer here. George Hill is at best a 97.

    Too inflated. PG should be 85-88ish
    Actually all of his ratings are inflated. J.R Smith 84? Leonard 85? Danny Green 81? Klay Thompson 86? Sanders 83?!

    Yeahhhh I'm buying a Basketball video game for the first time since 2k8 lol

    15. CHRIS COPELAND
    2K13 Rating: 64
    Estimated 2K14 Rating: 73 (plus-9)
    He wasn’t even originally included in the game but after New York locked him up, Copeland and his Waka Flocka dreads were part of our virtual gameplay. Copeland fell in and out of New York’s rotation but after proving his worth to the tune of a $6 million payday over two seasons with Indiana, 2K needs to follow suit and increase his worth in their eyes as well.
    8. ROY HIBBERT
    2K13 Rating: 79
    Estimated 2K14 Rating: 89 (plus-10)
    Going into the NBA 2K13 season, there were 12 players rated better than Hibbert at the center position, which is unfathomable at this point. After being arguably the most dominant big man in the playoffs, Hibbert should see his rating jump to a level of superstardom. A rating of 89 seems fair since Hibbert went into full-out beast mode during the Eastern Conference Finals, posting over 22 points and 10 rebounds per game during the seven-game series.

    PG at 88 would be fine with me, but Jrue Holiday was an 88 at the end of this past season. So if Jrue is still an 88 then yeah Paul is a 92.

    Wouldn't 92 put him like top 5 in the game? Lebron is a 99 but after that I think CP3 and Kobe were like 94-95? Then Wade and Howard were like 92s I think. Forgot about Durant and Westbrook they'd be up there too.

    This is very close to what I have set up on 2k13 currently...

    Hill's rating is the only one that is fairly off from what I have...

    I've gone through and redone all roster ratings and kept the teams accurate over the offseason... And my 2K has the Pacers as the 2nd best rated roster in the league... I think San An turned out to be #1...

    Hill always gets undervalued so I expect that to continue. He spent all of last season rated below Collison

    Yeah this seems reasonable. Maybe Danny at 80-82ish and I don't know if S. Hill will be that high. I think Damian Lillard started out as a 70 last year and Drummond stayed a 70. Then again Orlando was a 69 so who knows...

    Haha... I just brain farted when I looked over your list... I was thinking you had GHill at 70

    I've got GHill around 76-77 and Solo around 71... So we were still on the same page...

    The guy who did those ratings is a bit generous.

    PG is rated an 83 on 2K13 - They also have his speed as really slow. He's one of the slowest SGs and middle of the pack 3s. Complete BS. Green's speed is a 94. You telling me that Green is that much faster than PG...who's like a 75 speed rating.
    Lance is a 75 I think (he got a huge boost in game a bit before the playoffs)
    Hibbs, West and Scola are 79
    Hill is around a 74
    Granger is an 81

    Here's what I think for 2K14
    PG - 88 (and it should be at least this high, he's above average in a lot of facets of the game)
    Hibbs - 85 (I think his performance toward the end of the year and his beastly playoffs will really help)
    West - 79
    Granger - 78
    Hill - 76
    Lance - 76 (Lance's speed rating is a bit low too)
    Scola - 76
    Ian - 68
    Watson - 70
    Copeland - 71
    Hill - 65
    OJ - 70

    Hope they do a better job with the Signature Skills too. Hibbert deserves defensive anchor and PG should be a lockdown defender.

    Pretty similar to me.

    I think Ian is way too high. His minutes and points were down from the year before and I think in 2K13 he's only a 69. S-Hill won't be rated that high. He'll get something similar to Plums. He's a second round talent taken in the first. Probably a 65.

    I'd love for West to get that kinda boost. But 2K never really improved his rankings, so for him to get that big a boost is probably not gonna happen. Plus, he turned a year older. Not sure older guys get those kinds of boosts.

    Whoever wrote these should've gone with the latest roster update in 2K13, not with what they started out at the beginning of the season.

    in one of the last updates Hibbert got the anchor and Paul got lockdown. Both are still underrated though, as is the team.

    In addition to the rankings, they need to tone down offensive rebounding. Good lord, everyone is such a great offensive rebounder in this game. How is it that difficult to do rankings?

    Man, I thought they ended PG with an 83.

    Still, he needs a speed boost. It's like a 75...way too stinking low. Should be more like an 88. Lance's speed is low too. I agree his quickness should be low, but that dude is fast once he gets going.
