Best part about having DD, we should have no scoring droughts. Zach can rest up good with Demar & Nikola on the floor without him.

5th-6th seed easily, with potential to go higher.


I am so hyped!!!

The scoring on scoring on scoring is part of the reason I kind of am on board to Lauri returning on the QO - having a bench mob with Coby and Lauri for scoring and TBJ/Caruso/Bradley for defence vs other benches!!!
Look, it's not in my nature to be mysterious. But I can't talk about it and I can't talk about why.

I guess this means DDR is our late game closer right...

Yes? Lavine IQ is prob around 57 and DeRozan close to 88. That makes difference with Levines bad D ofc.

Fake news. Sorry to burst your LaVine hating bubble but DeRozan will probably be rated the same as Zach if not slightly worse when the official rating comes out. I’m guessing 85-87.

Zach was an 88 (2K21) & dropped to 87 (2K22)

DeRozan was an 87 (2K21) & will possibly drop a point or stay the same.

It's amazing how important the 2K ratings have become lately. 50 years from now guys won't even play real Basketball on the court anymore......they will play their own virtual player and make around 1 billion US$ per year ^^

At least that's the way they can stay healthy....unless they break their fingers while pressing around on the controller-buttons.

It is crazy how so many players are bothered my video game ratings lol. However, esports are huge and will only continue to get bigger. Only wish there was esports around before when I was a big gamer.

Decided to take 2k20 seriously and grinded for legend. Met a lot players during that time. A lot of over inflated self confidence is one part of the community.

I will say 2K21 I’m venturing into proAM / matchup experience and enjoying myself. The speed of the game and skill of players are definitely a step up.

Amazing to me, ive never played the game once or even been in a room while it was being played.

My generation was pong, and I stopped video games somewhere between "uppercut, uppercut, body blow" and "sorry, our princess is in another castle"

I am glad to add in DeRozan’s midrange and post game I was enjoying watching CP3 play because teams are set up to give you those types of shots these days or in the case of post game I just don’t think guys see enough of it to know how to effectively defend it. When they run into a player good at those things it really can throw defenses into chaos they either let that guy continue to torch them or adjust their game plan at which point you have them changing how they want to play.

I’m also just a big believer in good passing in the post and I think that really puts pressure on defenses so I’m looking forward to seeing the passing between Vuc and DeRozan they will set up some really easy baskets for each other and I think Williams will really benefit from this too making cuts to the basket if he gets a head of steam he’s hard to deal with and they can both get him the ball. Should be a really fun offense to watch we have a lot of good distributors so I’m really just happy at the potential for enjoyable basketball.

I think a key to end games will be how Billy handles substitutions. I think the key will be how to handle Vuc and DDR with offense and defense subs. I think we can get away with one out there defensively, but probably not both in tight game situations.

5th-6th seed easily, with potential to go higher.


Without a sign and trade, the most they could have offered was the tax payer's MLE. He wasn't going to play there for that.

Oh most definitely the money was a huge factor for Demar. In my opinion, yes the Bull's overpaid and I get that there wasn't much direct competition with teams that could also offer him the same amount. Still, I think there can still be an advantage for the org with signing Demar and having him feel valued based on the amount they were willing to pay for him instead of having him signed for the lowest possible dollar amount.

Add to that the opportunity to play with Zach, Vuc, and Lonzo and I think that this new mgmt team is at least starting off with star level players that have a positive outlook on the team/org.

I guess even with his absolutely horrendous D & laughable IQ, he's still rated same if not better than DeRozan. All good.
