    Default Raptors' "Signature Skills"

    In the month leading up to the release of NBA 2K13, 2K Sports had decided to reveal a new feature called "Signature Skills". These "Signature Skills" would be RPG-game-like attributes that would capture the intangibles that players give that could not be determined through mere ratings. Each player would have from 0 to 5 Signature Skills.
    Quite recently, they revealed the full list of 30 Signature Skills, and example players that the Skills would be given to.


    BUT WAIT!

    Readers, don't be so quick to dismiss this thread as insane offseason ramblings. Mods, don't pull the trigger to lock this thread or send it to the Video Game thread where no one will ever see it again.


    Because dear readers, I want you, yes, YOU, to just think... about which signature skills you would give to our players if you were a member of the 2k13 crew or modding team.


    Thank you for reading, and think wisely.

    Full list here: http://2ksports.tumblr.com/post/3059...kills-in-depth

    Lowry is already shown to have Charge Card, so include it in your 5 Skills for him.

    Will contribute as requested once I've had time to go through everything ...

    Just one thing ... "Posterizer" Example Players: Blake Griffin, Josh Smith, Hakim Warrick. ...

    One of these things is not like the other ...

    Off the top of my head,

    Lowry: Charge Card, Lockdown Defender, alley ooper
    DeRozan: Highlight Film
    Fields: Spot up shooter?
    Bargnani: microwave, AntiFreeze, Deadeye
    Valanciunas: Scrapper, Hustle Points, Brick Wall(?)

    Calderon: Dimer, Floor General, Alley ooper
    Ross: Spotup Shooter
    Kleiza: Microwave
    Davis: Break Starter?
    Amir: Scrapper, Hustle Points, Brick Wall(?), Defensive Anchor

    JL3: Microwave
    Anderson: Spotup shooter, Acrobat (he had like a billion and 1's)
    Acy: Scrapper, Hustle Points
    Gray: Defensive anchor

    Bargnani signature move- taking his time getting up the floor when his team mates are already to run the offense.

    Alley oop passes are just one of the many things that Calderon can't do well.

    other things include: defence, winning and not messing up when the game is on the line.
    he's great at stats though.

    Maybe his signature skill can be Fantasy All-Star

    This sounds wrong to me.

    Jose has thrown some of the nicest alley oop passes Raptor fans have ever seen.

    What are you talking about? Calderon is definitely good at throwing alley oop passes, just ask Amir Johnson.

    This is about what I was going to put together. But then I started thinking, and realized 2kSports will likely not be generous enough as to give these special attributes to any of the last 4 guys on your list. And likely alot less than that even.

    I'd say the only ones who actually get these special attributes, will be Demar as Highlight Reel, Lowry will likely get the Ankle Breaker on top of maybe the ones you listed; and maybe Bargs gets Deadeye and Microwave. But my guess is thats about it.

    On the other hand, I see they've given Austin Rivers the Ankle Breaker; so perhaps they have been generous in doling these out after all.
