Perimeter Defense Rating (NBA 2K20)

Previously known as On-Ball Defense rating, this rating affects how good a player is at Isolation (faceup) defense.

Position Averages
PG: 77
SG: 74
SF: 77
PF: 67
C: 51

An average PG/SG/SF starter has roughly a 75 rating. Assuming starters are quality players (i.e. above average), this means the average PG is roughly a 70 rating.

85 NBA Point Guards (2K default ratings) - What players stand out as over/underrated?

(Positions were edited; the biggest change is that I classify LeBron/Oladipo here based on current information)

95-99 TIER (0)

90-94 TIER (4) - 95th Percentile
93 Eric Bledsoe
92 Patrick Beverley
91 Victor Oladipo, Chris Paul

85-89 TIER (6) - 88th Percentile
89 DeJounte Murray
87 LeBron James
86 Kyle Lowry
85 Mike Conley, Derrick White, John Wall

80-84 TIER (10) - 76th Percentile
84 Ben Simmons, Lonzo Ball
83 Fred VanVleet, Russell Westbrook
82 Matthew Dellavedova, Frank Ntilikina, Austin Rivers
80 Cory Joseph, Elfrid Payton, Rajon Rondo

75-79 TIER (16) - 57th Percentile
79 Kris Dunn, Dante Exum, De'Aaron Fox, Jevon Carter
78 Justise Winslow, Kadeem Allen, Ricky Rubio, Jeff Teague
76 Raul Neto, De'Anthony Melton
75 George Hill, Kemba Walker, Terry Rozier, Michael Carter-Williams, Delon Wright, Stephen Curry

70-74 TIER (15) - 40th Percentile
74 Evan Turner, Spencer Dinwiddie, T.J. McConnell, Reggie Jackson, Aaron Harrison, Ish Smith
73 Ja Morant, Goran Dragic, Kyrie Irving, Dennis Schroder, Jacob Evans
71 Tomas Satoransky, Nigel Williams-Goss

65-69 TIER (18) - 19th Percentile
69 Tim Frazier, Elie Okobo, Damian Lillard
68 Aaron Holiday
67 Darius Garland, Brandon Goodwin, Devonte Graham, Alex Caruso, Markelle Fultz, Derrick Rose
66 Dennis Smith, Ty Jerome
65 Ryan Arcidiacono, Lou Williams, Quinn Cook, Jalen Brunson, Patty Mills, Shabazz Napier

60-64 TIER (10) - 7th Percentile
64 Yogi Ferrell, J.J. Barea
63 Trey Burke, Collin Sexton
62 Kendrick Nunn, Monte Morris, Frank Jackson
60 Frank Mason, D.J. Augustin, Cameron Payne

55-59 TIER (5) - 1st Percentile
59 Carsen Edwards Anfernee Simons
57 Brad Wanamaker, Tyus Jones
55 Trae Young

50-54 TIER (0)

45-49 TIER (1) - 0th Percentile
47 Isaiah Thomas

MISSING TIER (10) - 10.5% of active PGs
Tremont Waters, Jordan Bone, Ky Bowman, Jordan McLaughlin, Josh Gray, Josh Maggette, Jared Harper, Kyle Guy, Julian Foreman-Wright, Justin Robinson

All but Robinson are on Two-Way Contracts.
I expect most to be rated 55-64 once added and flesh out the lower tiers.

Re: Perimeter Defense Rating (NBA 2K20)

Muggsy feels a little under-rated for me. He's noted more for his hustle and quick hands, but he wasn't a horrible defender on the perimeter. He may have been small, but he was tough to get by.



As for current players, I can't help but feel Lebron and Curry to be a little overrated, Fox to be a little underrated. Not much on any of those, mind you, but I think of each of them as the next tier or so down or up, depending.

OMG, I loved Magic growing up and wore 32 because of him but him having a 98 on ball defensive rating is ludicrous and one of the biggest eyesores in the game.

Re: Perimeter Defense Rating (NBA 2K20)

One thing I can add is shot contest strength on jumpers is also tied to the Perimeter D rating.

Thats interesting. Bledsoe is rated as 93 by Rashidi. When Bledsoe contest Kemba and Durant's jumper, will there be a difference?

For the record, posted ratings are the 2K defaults.

Using this as an exercise to see if my personal scale needs adjusting.

Currently recording all the Isolation Synergy data from the last four years. Samples are getting lower every year. PGs for example don't really Isolate, its mostly PNR.

Bledsoe's 4-year score is 0.77 PPP if I remember correctly. I think he was around 0.92 last year, but in only 36 possessions (0.63 the prior season is more reflective of his ability).

50th Percentile last season I think was 0.88 PPP.
0.77 PPP in a large sample would certainly merit 90ish rating
