SWEET!!! I hope we get to play him in the game; MJ vs Kobe/LBJ/Wade. Too bad its going to be a long wait.

Oh maaan. You know this means that 2K HAS to up the ante in terms of gameplay issues with this news.

Normally I'm a "who gives a damn who's on the cover" type of guy, but Jordan? Seriously? I don't even really like basketball that much, but this gets my attention. I'll be buying this game for the cover! Yes, for the cover. I'll play it, sure, but I'll display this thing the way a bookworm displays War and Peace on their bookshelf. It's a must-have box for any serious sports gamer... right next to the Desmond Howard NCAA Football.

Now... Jerry Rice on Madden, Jim Thorpe on NCAA, Pele on FIFA, Gretzky on NHL, and Babe Ruth on The Show... c'mon, guys, get'r done!

Yeszirrr. I better see like every pair of J's in there now. I hope the Infrareds and Space Jams are in there. Just imagine the sales of this game............Oh my goodness, this is going to be off the charts.

lol you must be a Knicks fan, I think this is great and cant wait for more information on this. But your right, we need some solid information on some old and lingering mechanic problems.

After reading the full thing it looks like he will be in the game, they just dont say how. It makes the most sence to put him on the "historic" teams (duh right) but I wonder if they have something else in mind for / with him, hopefully along side him being on the "historic" teams

I really feel bad for this generation that did not get to see MJ play live. He was unlike any others. Simply amazing, Kobe, Lebron or Wade have nothing on him.

looks like 2k got their man, but a cover athlete doesn't resolve game play.....it's all about SALES

I would think the exciting part would be that they will have jordan in game with maybe some of his Mo-cap this year. I guess for the 1st time a next gen game would attempt to create a jordan worthy of jordan instead of user created content
