Share And Comment

2K Sports has announced the complete lineup of 15 NBA legends that will be available in “NBA’s Greatest” mode, an all-new playable game feature in NBA 2K12. For the first time, gamers will be able to take control of some of the most iconic players in NBA history, such as Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Julius Irving, and pit them against other classic and modern-day teams to create NBA dream matchups. If you pre-order you will receive two bonus, historic NBA teams featuring their own NBA greats – the 1990-91 Golden State Warriors and the 2001-02 Sacramento Kings. Bonus content will be available on launch orders only, while supplies last.

Each of these 15 basketball legends has been meticulously recreated with an uncanny level of detail, including period-specific depictions of their arenas, team uniforms, signature moves, and even historically accurate broadcast presentation styles in NBA 2K12. So this list isn’t bad in all honesty. When the news about this first came about I gave you my picks of who I thought the other 10 guys should be and wouldn’t you know it I actually called everyone on this list (except Pippen), the fact that I actually gave you twelve and not 10 should be completely ignored (it was a tough list to build)

“NBA’s Greatest” legends in NBA 2K12 include:

•          Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

•          Larry Bird

•          Wilt Chamberlain

•          Julius Erving

•          Patrick Ewing

•          Magic Johnson

•          Michael Jordan

•          Karl Malone

•          Hakeem Olajuwon

•          Scottie Pippen

•          Oscar Robertson

•          Bill Russell

•          John Stockton

•          Isiah Thomas

•          Jerry West

On my list I had David Robinson, Charles Barkley, Moses Malone and Clyde Drexler who I think all deserved to make the list over Scottie Pippen who was a really good player in his own right and I know he made the 50 greatest but I just wouldn’t put him over either of those guys. He played with MJ most of his career and we will never know if he could have carried a team by himself like Barkley and Robinson did.

NBA 2K12 will be available on October 4, 2011.
