I bought and downloaded the initial first access version of the sim today. Taking an initial look at player ratings and, like every other year, found a few headscratchers. I'm sure that there will be a few unhappy GM's when the star ratings get released. Only thing I will mention is that the developer did say that the initial ratings may move a little more this year than usual.

Saying that, I will release the 3/3.5 players tomorrow and the 4/4.5/5 players on Sunday.

There are currently:

5 stars- (8 players)
4.5 stars- (11 players)
4 stars- (10 players)
3.5 stars- (29 players)
3 stars- (48 players)



EDIT- Should be 8---5 star players

Usually don’t put as much thought into overall star ratings as I do player strengths and fit, but here are my expectations for my core four…

Joel Embiid 4.5 stars
CJ McCollum 3.5 stars
Fred VanVleet 3.5 stars
Tobias Harris 3.5 stars

Top four are in elite company with the amount of wins, that's a win–loss record percentage of:

GSW: 68%
Chicago: 67%
Dallas: 66%
Portland: 66%

In real life Spurs have the highest win–loss record percentage with 61%.

I think i'm more interested to see how the rookies are going to look this year after last years perplexing ratings to say the least.
