NBA's Greatest Mode


How do you top The Jordan Challenge mode that was available in NBA 2K11, which allowed basketball fans to relive and replay the most exciting moments of Michael Jordan's career? If you're 2K Sports, you create a mode that allows fans to relive the most memorable moments of 15 legends!

NBA 2K12 will feature Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Julius Erving, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and 10 other all-time basketball greats in this new mode. Why not reveal the mysterious 10? According to 2K Sports, it's to stir debate on who the remaining ten players should be.

"We want to get people talking," says Jason Argent, 2K's vice president of marketing. "We want to get fans engaged in the next couple of weeks before we announce the rest of the roster."

The greatest thing is that as you play through this mode, you will be able to unlock these legends, and their teams, enabling you to play against the team's of today. I'd love to see Jordan's Bulls take on the trio from Miami.

"One of the things we're really proud of as a franchise is that we've transcended video games and have become part of the talk about basketball and the NBA," says Argent. "So we're going to leverage that with 'NBA 2K12' as every person who loves to debate sports, every person in every barber shop and bar and everywhere else always wonders: What would happen if today's Lakers played one of the Jordan teams?

Who are some other legends you would like to see in NBA 2K12?
