  1. Shout out to Smirkin Dirk for calling this one a week ago.
    Smirkin Dirk a Long Time Ago
    Ronnie basically said a couple of months back that the 07 Warriors would be in.

    Smirkin Dirk A Few Minutes Later
    Apologies, it was LD.
    Watch from 23.55
    "We have teams that span across the history of the NBA. Fifty plus years and fans still want more and more and more. And we believe, that there could be some more teams coming."
    Baron Davis! That also means my favorite shooting form of all time Stepen Jackson will be making a return!

    I just need Jason Kidd and the Nets. And I'll be happy. That will be at least 10 teams I loved to death back in the day.

    Decent pick.
    Now it's time to stop with this crazy guessing game...and start with the guessing game of which players made it into each team. Madness...phase 2...coming up after these messages.

    The 01-02 Nets were already announced
    now i'm completely fine with the 15-16 warriors because this team made it in. I think now people really don't mind that the warriors from a couple seasons ago are in now that we have this team included. lol, for some reason iw as also thinking maybe the 03 magic would be included because of the magical season t-mac had, but was that justified to warrant a subpar magic team that lost in the first round? meh. but very prime t-mac is what i would love to have too.

    Is he dunking on Andrei Kirilenko? Who is that?

    It's a broken AK47 (like the ones in Far Cry 2). Would never be the same player again after that dunk.

    Yep, appears to be the mop-top version of AK.
    jeebs9
    Wait what?! When did I miss that?
    They were one of the two final picks before the 2007 Warriors. The 2002 Nets and 2005 Spurs both made the cut.
    SkillzFromThe6
    Yup. It is AK-47. That means he's on the Utah Jazz All-Time Team.

    Rightfully deserved. AK47 was a legit all- star at his peak and played a lot of years in Utah

    I don't see how anyone could complain about this, but I'm sure someone will.

    I will, because this stupid team was the only one that could have beaten the 07 Mavs that year.
    Great addition to the game, but watching that series took me to levels of frustration Ive never experienced before.

    GREATEST 8TH SEED OF ALL TIME LETS GOOOOO!!!!

    Well the 99 Knicks made it to the Nba finals as an 8th seed so that is much better than losing in the 2nd round.
    Imo the 94 Nuggets who were one of the first 8th seeds to beat a 1st seed, are way better too. Never cared for the 07 Warriors.

    How about just enjoying the fact that a decently requested team actually made it in for a second? We wont know whos in or out until release, anyway. So why clutter up with the negativity. Damn!

    No Mavs fan should have been too upset. No Warriors team can win a title when Don Nelson is the coach. It's just for pure entertainment (and good one).

    You can take your frustrations out on them by putting sliders up and dropping 100 on them with Dirk

    I'd say they're missing 6 notable squads from the 2000s now (early 2000s Bucks, early 2000s Pacers, late 2000s Magic, late 2000s Lakers, late 2000s blazers and early 2000s Celtics)

    They said on the 2KCast that this is in no way the end of Classic Teams and they'll keep chasing teams and legends into 2K19 and beyond. I wonder how many we can even get on a Blu-Ray? The future is bright for classic team fans

    Don Nelson and son basically give them the scouting. They coached the Mavs for years. Basically made them into what they are today. No offense to any Mavs fans here. My brother was a huge Mavs fan. This and the Heat lost hurt big time (first time).

    Hmmm hopefully more old school player signature packages. They also need to bring back the broadcast filters to make it really feel like old school.

    I think it's all about the . Just like last year. When we started without Steve Nash. A lot of people complained. Pre order went through the roof. And Steve Nash made it back in the next update. All these classic teams need contract agreement to go by smoothly.

    I still recall Mark Cuban threatening to sue Nelson for breach of intellectual copyright after that series. Defending Dirk with smaller guts like Jackson and Rich basically forced him to develop a back to the basket game, so good definitely came from it. Part of me still thinks Dallas should have 3 championships.
    But from a game perspective, this is a great addition. Lots of 3s, small ball, fast pace.

    Ronnie said "he is dunking over Kirilenko" so, AK47 is in!

    Nice. It should be pretty easy then to make that Jazz team and Kidd's Nets team that went to back to back finals.

    I totally agree with you! I'm sure my brother does too. It's funny you mentioned back to the bakery game. Years later the same exact thing happen to LeBron and that heat team. LeBron came back with a post up game and they won lol.

    Looking at AK47 here, could we get a 06-07 Jazz Team? Maybe there are more classic teams that they are adding?!?

    I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Don Nelson. I'm quite fond of coaches who are gutsy enough to think outside the box. I think he sometimes thought too far outside the box for his time and circumstance but I'm not sure if the game would be where it is today if it weren't for guys like him daring to do unusual stuff, like giving Manute the green light.
    The 07 Warriors were not very good. Fun but not very good. They just happened to be the worst possible matchup for the #1 seed that year, much like the 94 nuggets.
    Glad to see them in the game, because prime Baron Davis.

    If you don't play MyTeam, then be optimistic for how they build out J-Rich in the main game roster. His MyTeam cards this year had him at 90/98/97 Standing/Driving/Contact Dunk, 98 Vertical, 100/100/100 Standing/Driving/Flashy Dunk Tendencies, and HoF Posterizer. An absolutely elite dunker in the game.
    These new teams are IN ADDITION to all the classic teams they already had right? Like we didn't lose any along the way?

    Yeah, can't wait to see the complete rosters of these new classic teams, all-time teams as well as the previous classic teams to see what other teams we can make.
    Wish we still had that create a team feature they used to have where we could duplicate existing players or add created players -- especially with these new court, jersey, etc...features.

    Hope this means we get Kelenna Azubuike. One of my favorite Wildcats ever 😁

    When I was first getting into 2K and basketball in general, my friend used to set me up with talent to sign or trade for in association mode and he was a major Wildcat fan so Kelenna was someone he frequently suggested and he was a major bench fixture for me so I'd be all for that if he's in as well.

    Now that's a nice surprise!!! Great marketing this time and cool team to play with. Now I wish the 07 Mavs were in though!! I think 15-16 Cavs still has a high chance of making it since all players are still available and probably the very soon announcement Ronnie refers to.

    Yeah, but at 7'7", I think there is a good chance he would get a contract in any era.
    I was watching game 5 of the 1991 ECSF (Sixers @ Bulls) and 3.8 seconds to the end of the 1st, Manute Bol inbounded an amzing full-court pass - straight to Barkley right over Pippen - under the basket at the other end, for easy 2. That was an amazing play. The commentators called Bol "The world's tallest QB". Yes, indeed.

    I doubt the kirelenko is from a all time team, look at the jersey . The all time team won't be wearing that.

    Considering that teams are All-Time teams -- I wouldn't be surprised if we had the option to put them in several jerseys the franchise has used.

    I know we've sucked over the years, but it's so frustrating never having the Bullets/Wizards represented in this. I don't understand it as I'm sure they had to sign a bunch of guys for our All-Time team that weren't on there before.

    The mid 2000's (Gil Zero, Tough Juice & 'Tawn) and back - to - back Finals teams ('78 - '79, I believe) are the only one's worthy of inclusion. I wouldn't want that pedestrian team, although talented, that got swept in '96 in.

    Phil, Wes, Hibachi, 'Ron and Jamison should be automatic locks.

    Who cares? it's a video game and the game should have all of the popular names of All time Wizards/Bullets history so I wanna at least see Chris Webber and Juwan Howard on the team if they can't get Rod Strickland too.
    I'd like to be able to reunite them with Jalen Rose on a team by itself too for a run at an NBA Championship.

    LOL, No they're not.
    They got creamed in the 2nd round.
    The 2011 Memphis Grizzlies team was way better than the 2007 Warriors.
    99 NYK went through 1st seed Miami by winning on their own court in the deciding game with Allan Houston's running jumper to win by 1 in the last second, then swept Atlanta in round 2 and beat Indiana in 6 in the Eastern Finals highlighted by Larry Johnson hitting a 4 point play in the last seconds when down by 3 on their way to the Finals.
    THAT my friend, is the work of the greatest 8th seed of all time! Lucky for us, 2K has them all in the game, so you can play it out for yourselves if you don't believe me lol

    I know we've sucked over the years, but it's so frustrating never having the Bullets/Wizards represented in this. I don't understand it as I'm sure they had to sign a bunch of guys for our All-Time team that weren't on there before.
    Yeah I was hoping to see the 90s team with Rod Strickland, Webber, Juwan Howard, rookie Ben Wallace, Calbert Cheaney, etc....gotta have Strickland team in there, be a fun team
