Slam Dunk Contest participants Aaron Gordon, Zach LaVine, and Will Barton have also received boosts to their dunking ratings. Runner-up Gordon and winner LaVine are now sitting at 99, while Barton’s dunk rating is now 90. Additionally, all three players have been given enhanced dunk packages.
Speaking of dunks, as we discussed in Episode #147 of the NLSC Podcast, there has been an issue with this year’s rookie crop not being able to dunk in NBA Live 16. The latest roster includes fixes for some of those players (including Karl-Anthony Towns, Kristaps Porzingas, and Bobby Portis), ensuring that players with dunk ratings of 60 or higher will be able to dunk in appropriate situations.
