Today the NBA 2k12 ratings were released today in the video above.

Here are the Knicks ratings

Melo 91

Amar’e 89

Billups 79

Fields 71

Douglas 69

Mason 66

Brown 65

Walker 65

Balkman 64

Turiaf 62

Shawne Williams 61

Shelden Williams 59

Jeffries 58

Rautins 56

Carter 53

I think Carter, Jeffries and Toney Douglas got rated a bit low. I definitely think Douglas got better last season not worse as indicated in his rating. Overall I think these rating are pretty accurate though. I would have loved to see Amar’e in the 90′s but 88 is a solid rating. I can’t wait to play this game.

Patrick Ewing and ’90′s Knicks Featured in Latest NBA 2k12 Trailer

In last years Michael Jordan themed NBA 2k11, Patrick Ewing and the ’94 Bockers were one of the old Jordan rival teams you could play with. This year, NBA 2k11 is emphasizing a new legends mode picking some of the greatest teams of all time and allowing gamers to play with them. In this latest “NBA’s Greatest” Trailer, Patrick Ewing and the 90′s Knicks are one of the teams that are featured. Unfortunately there was no showing of the 70′s Knicks with Willis Reed, Clyde Frazier and Earl Monroe. I think it is a shame that they are not in the game (or at least there is no sign they will be) because they truly were one of the best teams ever. That being said, this is a video game and they have to make the most money they can. Younger gamers will clearly be more intrigued with the Run TMC Warriors or the Chris Webber Kings (two teams featured in the trailer) then they will with a team from the 70′s that they never saw play. It is a shame but it is understandable why the 70′s Knicks probably will not be in the game. Also, on a side note, I hope 2k takes the time to go and fill in all the benches on these legendary teams. Last year, they gave you the starters and then put a bunch of really crappy made up players as the bench. I do not wanna play with made up bench players again on the Knicks, I want Greg Anthony and Charles Smith and Rolando Blackman and Hubert Davis to be in the game instead of fake players. I have a feeling 2k will have the fake players again which is really annoying but we will see what happens.

Correction: I have learned via Alan Hahn that the 70′s Knicks are in the video game.
