So, no 1992 Knicks, but at least the Bad Boys are there. Thanks for posting! And I see that the eintre Finals series vs LA is there, not only one game.

Correction to the article: The flu game was game 5, as far as I can remember. And the series ended in 6 games, not 7. WTF IGN? LOL
 
# 2 ifriedrice @ 07/22/10 04:20 PM
Yesss! And high-res pictures to boot.

Good find.

The two Jazz games are a bit redundant. Would have rather had the 55 pt Suns Finals game or the 92 Knicks, but ya can't complain about this.

Would any of you want to have DLC for Jordan Challenges? Also, do we have to play this in the My Player type of way or just with the team?

I think IGN has just ruined the first Insight...
 
# 7 Altimus @ 07/22/10 04:31 PM
I wonder if in the flu game he'll be injured to lower some ratings.

yeah, I was wondering that same thing, like its going to be really hard to dominate. I also wonder if the announcers will comment on how mike is sick with the flu or anything like that.

YEAH! Just wish they also took into account the number of assists MJ had in this series, as it was pretty much equal to Magic's. MJ had 11.4 apg in that series!
