And, as always, they make the former Warrior LEAGUES better once he's on another squad (Monta Ellis is an 86... the highest rated Warriors are Curry and Lee at 82). They've done that with Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson, and Jason Richardson in recent years... 86 or 88 on the Warriors; 90 on the Clippers. Whoever runs the whole rating system clearly has something against Golden State. I'm still pretty happy that they rank them 13 of 30 overall, though.
And at least they got something right with the Signature Skills feature. That was something they REALLY needed to impliment and it makes a huge difference. Last year, you could pretty much throw it to LeBron and drive and just have him jam it on everyone. This year, with dudes like Bogut getting "Defensive Anchor" love - or Serge Ibaka, with "Eraser" skills - guys like Shannon Brown are no longer unrealistically dominant on the drive. Clutch addition for sure; although I would have loved to see them add some negative ones as well as positive... wouldn't be too hard to slap a guy with a "Loud Mouth" label that triggered technical fouls during cold steaks, or maybe "Lagger" for guys like ARandolph/Jeremy Tyler that jog back on defense after missing a lay-up. I'm sure Hove didn't wanna offend anyone (hence the lack of negative signature skills), but hopefully next year they run with this feature and add a couple dingers for guys like Biedrins that just flat-out play with some obvious flaws. It'd be histerical to give a guy like Russell Westbrook "Tunnel Vision" and disable the pass button he's driving to the cup during a cold streak!
Gotta edit guy's dunks and lay-ups though. DLee's favorite jam is clearly the quick-release back-scratch and they don't even give that to him on his default package.
