Player Tendencies NBA2K20

Going thru the official roster for 2K20, I’ve found so many errors to player tendencies so I’m starting a running list that I’ll send to 2K once complete. I’d like to go by category & really need anyone who can contribute their play tested research to provide what tendencies need updated the most. I’ve noticed the rookies are poorly implemented this year and will need major overhauls in each category.

List of Big men who have 3PT Tendencies (Shot Three ,Spot-Up Three,Off-Screen,Left/Left-Center/Center/Right/Right-Center) that should have them removed unless noted in ( ). If no parentheses then each player below should have 0 for each 3PT tendency above.

- Daniel Gafford
- Cristiano Felicio
- Wendell Carter (Reduce tendency)
- Ante Zizic
- Tristan Thompson
- Robert Williams
- Vincent Porier
- Ivica Zubac
- Montrezl Harrell
- Johnathan Motley
- Mdiondu Kabengele (Lower 3PT tendency to 10) - he shot a good bit in college
- Miles Plumlee
- Ivan Rabb
- Bruno Fernando
- Damian Jones (Only Left/Right corner should have tendency value while 3PT tendency should be 5)
- Alex Len (Needs 3PT tendency added)
- Udonis Haslem
- James Johnson (Lower 3PT tendency)
- PJ Washington (Small increase to 3PT tendency)
- Bismack Biyombo
- Thomas Welsh
- Tony Bradley
- Ed Davis
- Rudy Gobert
- Mitchell Robinson
- Julius Randle (Increase 3PT Shot Tendency)
- Dwight Howard
- Anthony Davis (Small 3PT Tendency increase)
- Javale McGee
- Amile Jefferson
- Khem Birch
- Nicolas Claxton (shot limited amount in college, could justify small 3PT tendency of 5)
- Mason Plumlee
- Goga Bitazde
- Jahlil Okafor
- Jaxson Hayes
- Andre Drummond
- Blake Griffin (Increase 3PT tendency to 65)
- Chris Boucher (Decrease 3PT tendency to 55)
- Pascal Siakam (Increase 3PT tendency to 45)
- Nene
- Tyson Chandler
- Clint Capela
- Jakob Poeltl
- Chimeze Metu
- Luka Samanic (Decrease 3PT tendency to 45)
- Cameron Johnson (Should be SF) - Increase tendencies heavily as he’s one of top shooters in draft class
- Chieck Diallo
- DeAndre Ayton
- Steven Adams
- Nerlens Noel
- Eric Moreland
- Justin Patton
- Karl Anthony Towns (Increase 3PT tendency)
- Jordan Bell
- Naz Reid (Decrease 3PT tendency to 45)
- Keita Bates-Diop (Decrease 3PT tendency to 35)
- Willie Cauley-Stein
- Kevon Looney
- Ian Mahinmi
- Thomas Bryant (Lower each tendency but leave 3Pt tendency at 5-10)
- Ben Simmons - 0 out all categories in both mid range/3

List of Guards/Wings whose 3PT Tendencies (Shot Three ,Spot-Up Three,Off-Screen,Left/Left-Center/Center/Right/Right-Center) should be increased sales it’s currently very low (They are shooters & tendency is low) or 3Pt Shot Tendency are at 0-20 in value & should be increased)

- Tomas Satoransky
- Darius Garland (shoots deep range 3’s)
- Jayson Tatum
- Jerome Robinson (Shooter)
- Cam Reddish (Shooter)
- DeAndre Bembry
- Miye Oni
- Kevin Knox (Shot heavy amount last season)
- Luka Doncic (Increase Stepback 3 along with low 3PT tendencies)
- Theo Pinson
- David Nwaba (very small 3PT tendency increase)
- Spencer Dinwiddie (Very small 3PT tendency decrease (to 65)
- Juan Hernangomez (Decrease 3PT tendency to 45)
- Alize Johnson (decrease 3PT tendency to 25)

- Bradley Beal (Increase 3PT tendency to 80)
- Rui Hachimura (Increase 3PT tendency to 35)
- Admiral Schofield (Increase 3PT tendency to 30)

I’ll continue to comb thru the official roster as my goal is to go tendency by tendency and post updates needed & have the community post what they have found that needs changing. I’d love everyone’s input on each tendency that needs a major overhaul as I’d love to get the info to 2K in hopes changes will be implemented.

Re: Player Tendencies NBA2K20

I've touched on the tendencies or nearly every player that's in the top 8 of each team's rotations...would highly suggest you check that out (my roster).

Yes I will be doing that. I think people like PJT and I need to collaborate. Tendencies are definitely my thing as well.

Re: Player Tendencies NBA2K20

They would have to review this issue as well, they have not modified it for years and it influences the Gameplay vs CPU:

Coaching Sliders and Points of Emphasis, specifically the "Run Plays".
For example when playing with Memphis Grizzlies, knowing that coach Jenkins has a predilection for the "Run & Gun" and playing fast pace, his Slider indicates Run plays: 85, the same as a coach with a totally opposite style like Nate. McMillan from Indiana Pacers, and that shows when playing games against the CPU,

Doing a simple test playing with Miami Heat, we see that Coach Spoelstra has Run Plays at 50, when you play against the CPU you see that the rival just run plays from the Playbook, and plays Fast Pace, when the Miami Heat is one of the teams that less possessions plays per game (Ranks 27th in Pace). That changes when putting Spoelstra's Run Plays at 100 for example,the team runs much less, has less FG Attempts per game, and makes more plays from its Playbook (famous Miami Adebayo-Duncan Robinson Handoff).

The opposite example is Grizzlies Taylor Jenkins, one of the most fast pace teams in the league, but Jenkins sliders Run Plays at 85 (remember like McMillan), prevents us from finding the realism of playing against these new Grizzlies.

I would like to know if someone has worked on this and has the "coaching Sliders and" Points of Emphasis "that best fit reality, thanks and excuse my English.

Re: Player Tendencies NBA2K20

Should see the tendencies for the classic teams/players.

My LORD they are completely messed up, to a MASSIVE degree.

It's one of the reasons I took a break between 2k16 and 2k20 - editing this crap every damn year just to get players even having a slight resemblance to their real life gameplay takes its toll.

Thought there were people at 2k getting paid for this, right?
