Underrated Budget Guy

Written by Nba2kGod11

This Gold J.J. Barea is really underrated in my opinion, no one really talks about him. I'm pretty sure DBG didn't even put him in his point guard tier list. He's basically Bobby Jackson and a budget version of Ruby Gus Williams. I'm going to keep this review short and simple.

Bought for: 2k MT


  • Slashing: 92 Speed, speed w/ ball, and acceleration, 83 ball handle, along with gold QFS, tight handles, unpluckable, and silver downhill is all you need to know. He can also finish with 86 driving layup and gold acrobat. This is budget FLASH right here.

  • Shooting: 90 mid and 84 3 are actually really good, if the defender sags off he can hit jumpers pretty consistently.

  • Playmaking: Silver Dimer and Floor General are crucial for a playmaking point guard.


  • Defense: His defensive stats are not it, and he has no defensive badges either. He's also 6'0. The D on this card is absolutely trash.

  • Can't Dunk: This isn't a huge problem but 25 driving dunk is not it, he has never dunked before for me.

  • No Shooting Badges: While his shooting stats are great he actually doesn't have any shooting badges. I don't find this a big weakness though he still makes shots for me.

Recommended Strategy: I think this card is more for winning easily in offline than online. Try to hide him on defense(match him up with opposing SG?) and sprint by people on offense.

Other Comments: I'm not saying this is a top 5 PG in the game or anything I'm just saying he's underrated and might help you win in offline modes easier.

Use if: You want a OP cheap point guard that can blow by defenders in TT Offline or Domination.

Don't use if: "You want someone that can play great defense and lock people up online.

Bottom Line: A great card that is super underrated and can get easy buckets for you in TT offline.
