What happened to Kareem, Dr. J., and C-Webb?

Why aren't Kareem, Dr. J., and C-Webb in nba 2k13? How can xbox 360 users hexedit it? I can't believe they're not in the game!!

Re: What happened to Kareem, Dr. J., and C-Webb?

it probably has something to do with money, contracts, the league's treatment of its retired players, greed, stupid hubris ("no video game could ever do my talent justice!"), agents, or blah blah blah whatever.

given their personalities (what little we think we know) Kareem isn't too big of a shocker. but Doc and Webber? those two seem very odd to me.
then again back before 2k11 was released i assumed both Charles and Reggie would jump at the chance to be in the game; i was obviously wronger than wrong.
hah "wronger"

in any case i would be super interested in a concrete answer to the question of their disappearance. even if that answer was just "um...money. duh."

2k should just tell us to quench our curiosity. it shouldn't matter, it's not like they're in the game right? hehe

goggles and the skyhook animation for created players?
ive got my fingers crossed!
i still love you Cap and im making at least three CAPs of you in 2k13!!

I think that's the long and short of it. My personal theory is 2K maxed out on legends in 2K12. I think they were probably able to get some folks to sign last year they likely wouldn't have had a chance to pick up for any other edition, just because there was a primary legend focus last year. For instance, we hand't seem Kareem in years prior to 2K12.

Now that the smoke's cleared, I think it's unavoidable that some stars either weren't satisfied with their likeness, didn't care for the money received, or felt they did 2K the favor 2K requested and now would like to go back to not being involved with making more money for the NBA by lending their likeness.

Separately, from what I've heard I don't think goggles are in 2K this year's create-a-player. But the sky hook likely should be. 2K doesn't have a habit of removing signature animations. I also admit it'd be pretty cool if XBox hexing were similar to last year and folks were able to locate these guys.

I've been considering the idea of how to go about this, either via video upload or just recording everything by hand and typing it here. I think the latter might be more work, but perhaps easier to read.

BigBall confirmed it in his thread a few days ago.

This is a test. If people were to look for ratings of a missing player, are these readable at all?

Re: What happened to Kareem, Dr. J., and C-Webb?

I am a little bummed at the lack of legends focus. I was hoping for something new and unique. Dream team and 01 Sixers is nice but lacked the punch I was hoping for. I kind of think it comes down to ego for some of these retired players. "Oh Barkley got paid...how much? Oh, you need to pay me that too" kind of thing. It is also a bit strange that we can have Barkley on the Dream Team but there is no classic team. Seriously....what kind of confusing legal stuff is that?

Anyhow, I am getting more and more curious about that whole 2kShare thing people have mentioned and some sort of "Kennedy?" DLC that allowed you to add a ton of classic players to the DLC.

Can anyone break down what happened and how it worked?
Can anyone explain 2kShare? I have never seen or used it.
Will this 2kShare be an possible option for some "created" legends to fill the voids on 2K13?

Sorry for my ignorance but I think I missed a nice perk in 2k12.
