Just wondering why the SF is always the feature star in the middle even though they're not the best player on them? And it's also the same pose for every team I noticed...

Pretty sure his name was Lew Alcindor that season.

It was Lew Alcindor. They even hinted at that in one of the insights. I'm kind of surprised to see him here as Kareem.

On May 1, 1971, the day after the Bucks won the NBA championship, he adopted the Muslim name Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

I don't think the SF is in the middle for being a star. It's probably just in a 1-5 order and SF (3) is in the middle and standing in front of everyone.

Young Lew Alcindor

I think they would have named him this way even if it was prior to that season. I have a feeling Kareem and Abdul-Rauf were willing to be there only if their name would be their Muslim name. Just my guess.

I read somewhere that the "Star" would be standing out like in 2K11 when they introduce the starting 5 and the "Star" player is the highlighted one while the others stand in the background.

Anyways it's the same pose for all the teams tho which is kinda weird.

So, I don't know what to say. The pose doesn't make sense.

It might be random in the Bulls Hornets one, BJ Armstrong and Muggsy Bogues are the ones standing out.

Pumped to use Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Wilt, Kareem, Oscar, etc. Really pumped.

I asked Rob Jones about this and he said that Kareem wants to be called Kareem. So even though he was Lew at this time, they couldn't use Kareem's likeness unless they call him by the name he wants. But the 2k guys know he wasn't Kareem then.

Those 70s Bucks are going to be a fun team to play with.

The question is, would the announcers say his original name?

How do you do it on PS3?
