LeBron James Ranked 98, Kobe a 94 in NBA 2K12

Posted September 19, 2011 by Simon in News

One of the things basketball gamers look for when they rip open the packaging and throw in a new game is the rankings of the different players, because, in a sense, that number determines how good the guys can be within the gameplay. Well in NBA 2k12, according to Pasta Padre, LeBron is ranked 98, while Kobe tops out at 94: “In NBA 2K11 both Kobe Bryant and LeBron James entered as 97 overall prompting discussion with each having their own factions of supporters but it was mostly harmless since they were tied atop the ratings. With NBA 2K12 though one has gone up while the other has dropped leading to some more contention between those who feel one should be above or at least at the same level as the other. LeBron James will begin NBA 2K12 as a 98 – the highest rated player in the game – while Kobe Bryant has settled in at 94. Miami also features the 96 rated Dwayne Wade and the 80 rated Chris Bosh (who drops from the 87 he started 2K11 with). Bryant and the Heat, who have no players outside the “big three” above 68, are the only ratings revealed so far.”

    I hate to say this but lebron is a better all around player than Kobe, but what they should do is take away like 38 overall rating away in the 4th quarter with no clutch at all and make Kobe a 98 in the 4th quarter.

  • Tommy Panaway

    I’m laughing my ass off at all these pissed off Lebron haters blinded by their fanboyism for Kobe. If you can’t see that Lebron is the best player in the league right now, you don’t know basketball. Simple as that. And no, I’m not a heat fan.

  • nope this is ok.. you might as well give lebron 2 more points. he needs it in the 4th quarter trololololol.

  • zachary

    what who made this game??? lebron should be a 100 and kobe should be a 1000!!!!!

  • haha

    lol if you think kobe is better than lebron than you’re delusional. bringing a championship doesnt have anything to do with individual talent and skill. kobe is better than lebron, career wise. but right now lebron is better than kobe. lebron is 26, and is all ready one of the best (if not the best) player in NBA. kobe is 33, and is declining. It’s natural. also the video game ratings are based on the previous season. lets compare Kobe and Lebron from last season.

    lebron had better FG% better 3PT FG%
    lebron had more Rebounds assists steal blocks points/ per game

    kobe had better FT%
    kobe had less TOs, and played like 5 more games than LBJ.

    hmm who had a better year last year?

  • yolen

    If someone has more rings doesn’t make him better. I mean in that case, let’s say, Sasha Vujacic is better than LeBron because he has got 2 rings and LeBron has got none.

    league *

  • jwadee

    thats bull shit kobe is still a beast in league and does work on every team in the late and is still clutch. there’s no way lebron is better let alone a fuckin 98 might as well give him a 100 smh disappointed already_- kb24 all day
    ps. I’m saying this as a basketball fan not just a kobe fan

  • Mehrzad

  • Bobby O Boberson

    any body That think Lebron not better than Kobe at this point yall need to just get his dick out yall mouth, it so easy to hate on people these days

  • Thanasi

    Lebron is better than kobe atm even if he choked. The ratings are not a symbol of who has won more championships but who is better at the moment. I believe wade and bron shuld be 96

  • yankee.

  • Lebron Is Better Than Kobe

    ok umm robert horry is better than kobe then cuz he has 7 right??? lebron is more talented than kobe. kobe could be the next jordan but there will never be another lebron.

    • ruthflores

    • james

      no robert horry isnt better than kobe even though he has 2 rings more than kobe you know why?
      cuz kobe BROUGH the ring to himself without any star helping him. only shaq.
      but LEBRON didnt get a ring even with dwyane wade and chris bosh !!!!
      and kobe isnt the next jordan hes the next kobe.

  • yeah but what they dont show here is that lebrons stats drop to 22 in the fourth quarter and kobes goes up to 98



  • B-Ray
