2K Sports announced today that NBA 2K12, which is due for release on all major consoles including the Wii on October 4, 2011, is to have an all-new playable game feature – “NBA’s Greatest” mode – through which gamers can relive professional basketball’s most memorable rivalries, with 15 historic NBA teams and their greatest players, including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Julius “Dr. J” Erving, among other basketball icons.
This means that players will now get the chance to take Larry Bird’s sweet stroke against Julius Erving’s legendary above-the-rim offense, or pit Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers’ “Showtime” offense against Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls to see which iconic teams and legends would dominate in an ultimate showdown. Players will also be able to unlock these legendary athletes and teams and create matchups against any current NBA franchise. Sounds like a great idea to solve those arguments you've been having for years about who's better than who!“The NBA 2K franchise has become an essential part of the NBA culture, and our fans can now take control of legendary teams and athletes from the NBA’s rich history,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “With ‘NBA’s Greatest’ mode, NBA 2K12 will allow fans to prove once and for all who are the greatest basketball icons of all time.”
