While the NBA season is still in question, 2K Sports continued onward, announcing the release of NBA 2K12 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PS2, PSP, and the PC.

Now basketball fans can take control of 15 legendary hoops icons, including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Julius Erving in  NBA 2K12's all new NBA's Greatest mode.  Finally, the debate over the best teams and players of all time can be laid to rest.

"Hoops fans have long argued about the hypothetical outcomes among basketball's most legendary players and storied teams," said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. "We took that passion to heart in creating  NBA 2K12 giving gamers the opportunity to end the debate once and for all with 15 electrifying basketball icons inNBA's Greatest mode."

Each of these 15 basketball legends were 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.  NBA 2K12 also features a revamped shooting mechanic with Total Shot Stick Control and an all-new post-play system, which allow fans to experience an unprecedented basketball simulation.

"It's amazing to see the attention to detail that 2K Sports captured in creating me and these great NBA players," said six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan. "I'm honored to be part of a game that gives millions of fans a look into our careers, especially with the level of authenticity and detail that  NBA 2K12  has."
