2 More NBA 2K18 Classic Teams Announced - '07-'08 Hornets & '13-'14 Pacers

  1. I feel like it's probably going to be important to keep this quote in mind:

    No team is taking the spot of another team, 2k has already put together 16 more teams for our benefit based on the rights to the players that they have been able to secure. Therefore, it is not a waste, nor is it lazy to be given the teams we have/are being given.

    That said, the inclusion of the '14 Pacers very likely means that Reggie Miller has continued to refuse to allow his likeness to be used.
    With three slots left, these picks also mean there's only two teams remaining who do not have classic team representative (assuming the '93 Nets are coming):
    Washington Wizards
    Los Angeles Clippers
    Eh. My big issue is that we can't really recreate an authentic 90s team because of how different the jerseys look compared to old school teams. Maybe 2k18 rectified that on the create a team, but if they didn't we're left with Reggie and Barkley wearing baggy shorts.
    I wish they'd give us retro teams without all the starters and just let us recreate the missing players.

    Really does seem like they are giving each franchise a team so let's hope for 90s Wizards team and 06 Clippers. Please no lob city clippers!!

    '00s Spurs are officially on life support. :y220:

    Grant Hill Pistons as well, but I reckon Spurs 07 vs. Wizards 07 or Clippers 06 unless they decide 16 Cavs..

    Huge Pistons fan here but I've never seen the '97 Pistons ever being a likely choice. I get it for the crazy court and jerseys (and Grant Hill fans) but they were first round fodder with a pretty uninteresting supporting cast. I mean, they were sharp during the regular season but it was a lot of role players (not counting an older Joe Dumars) who all worked because Grant Hill was a magnificent facilitator.
    I'd be more 10 times more befuddled by the lack of a 2000's Spurs team. Something would have had to have gone really wrong on the likeness acquisition front for them to not have a team included (like, say, Tim Duncan pulling himself out, which seems really unlikely).
    Aside from the 11-12 Thunder and 07-08 Hornets, these historic teams have been a major bummer for me so far.
    So much potential that has so far resulted in minimal excitement

    True but he had some nice supporting players though ;)
    Barkley Suns team is definitely never happening either..

    Yeah my hopes for the 07 spurs and 10 Lakers are pretty much dead at this point and the lack of a prime Duncan is really disappointing.

    They've been hitting at about a 70 percent clip for me. All the bolded have been great picks for me:
    2016 Golden State Warriors
    2014 Indiana Pacers
    2013 Memphis Grizzlies
    2012 Oklahoma City Thunder
    2011 Dallas Mavericks
    2009 Denver Nuggets
    2008 New Orleans Hornets
    2006 Memphis Grizzlies
    2004 Los Angeles Lakers
    2002 Sacramento Kings
    1999 New York Knicks
    1997 Miami Heat
    1993 New Jersey Nets*
    *Rumored
    Looking at that list, with three teams remaining, I'm thinking we might be able to conclude that a 2000's Nets team will not be making an appearance this year. I wonder if 2K was aiming for a 2000's Nets but couldn't land who they needed, falling back on the 90's squad a replacement.

    I think the Spurs still have a chance. Duncan was still in last year and Ginobili and Parker are still active. Some of those Spurs teams should be able to feature enough likenesses already in the game to make a roster. They're also historically good enough to fit as a big final reveal.
    I'm pretty happy about this Hornets squad, the Mavs, Nuggets, Heat, and Knicks squads. Could do without the Pacers and Warriors especially.
    Do we already have one of the Nash Suns teams? I can't remember.
    I'd love to get the Arenas/Jamison/Butler Wizards team too.
    Edit: Kings and the rumored Nets are awesome too

    Im gonna guess last 4 teams: 93 Nets (twitter leak), 01 Nets, 11 Bulls and either 09-10 Lakers, 05/07 Spurs, 09 Magic. Im gonna guess still no Odom/Bynum or Hedo/Rashard so the Spurs.
    Would be very surprised if Wizards, Clippers and Nets don't get a team. 2007 Jazz nor 2009 Lakers nor Magic is happening. If Nets are in, hoping only 93 team, perhaps vs. 93 Clippers w/ Mark Jackson who's in MyTeam and Manning who was in the college legends pack.
    I truly dont understand why people are so quick to call 2K out about these teams...before last week we had no idea they were adding teams and that still wasnt gonna make Live 18 better,but from all the complaining going on i gotta believe no REGGIE must be a dealbreaker for alot of yall.

    my new predictions for the remaining 4 teams:
    14 Clippers(that team had the franchise's best record)
    93 Nets(based on possible leak by Kenny Anderson)
    03 Wizards(they will probably include that team only cus Jordan was on there and they probably won't go with any Bullets team because of the name)
    07 Warriors
    my dark horse picks instead of 07 Warriors are 03 Nets or 14 Spurs.
    I am predicting that Tim Duncan will be on the cover of 2k19 Legend edition and maybe then they will give us a few Spurs championship teams.
    Haha shoes really, who looks at that while playing?! They could all be wearing generic white or black shoes with a fake brand for all I care. With regards to Reggie, nobody cares about him but a 90s Pacers team would be dope with all the rivalries!

    Mavericks and Nuggets i'm also fine with but I was hoping for some Charles Barkley, Prime Derrick Rose (2011 Bulls), Reggie Miller and Grant Hill. Maybe it's not too late but every time they release new teams, the chances of seeing any of those guys gets smaller and smaller
    DeeRobLakers
    All the teams are cool so far except the 06 grizzlies i have no idea the reasoning for that team

    Right? If only they had gone 1 year later to the 2006-2007 Grizzlies, We would have Pau Gasol, Rudy Gay, Mike Miller in his prime and a young Kyle Lowry.
    I have no clue what they were thinking lol
    I may be naive but you would think they would want the last ones released to be either big surprises or ones frequently requested.
    I predict
    02 Nets paired with 93 Nets
    05 or 07 Spurs
    07 Warriors.

    Yes, but played only 2 games. I don't believe he is in there

    I'm hoping for a big surprise at the end but roster creator is going to have to be my friend again.
    Getting real worried about the lack of Spurs. Really hoping they didnt lose Tim Duncans license.
    They really needed to add both the 09/10 Lakers and a 00s Spurs, but its looking like were getting neither.
    If legends got better faces and signature animations, they're all gonna be new to me.
    Didn't touch any of them in 2K17.
    If legends are untouched, I'll probably try a couple of these new ones (because they're too new not to have good faces/animations).
    Hornets is pretty cool too IMO. No probs with that one.
    Man that Hornets team came so close to knocking my Spurs out of the playoffs....that was a tough 7 game series..
    Called the '14 Pacers...had statistically one of the top defensive seasons ever...pre meltdown Roy and Lance
    I'll actually be using them...
    And there's me thinking it couldn't get much worse after the warriors inclusion.
    Now we get yet ANOTHER team that is literally just 3 years old.
    2k started off SO well. Only thing that'll make me remotely happy now is if we get an absolute miracle and get the '93 Suns, but judging by 3 quarters of the reveals so far, that ain't happening.
    Guess we all know now that 'classic' doesn't equate to 'retro'. :( Well, not my definition of retro, anyway.
    Still, at least some of you guys will be happy with these choices - enjoy, fellas!

    Yeah, I have been saying this for a while. The bright side, is that if you play this game 10 years from now, the 2014 Pacers will 'seem' like a "classic" team. :tongue:

    You can't have an All Time Spurs team without Timmy. That would be horrible.

    If Timmy doesn't make it at all on the game, I bet all the love he gets for being such a selfless team player would fade. Lol.

    I think he will be in too. In fact, I see no reason why a good 2000's Spurs team wouldn't be in. I was just playing off the poster's concerns.

    Only thing clear is that YOU dont pay attention to shoes...and that YOU dont care about accuracy in eosters and detail for realism. 2K would get ROASTED for rest of time if they didnt have authentic shoes in game...dint lie to yourself boss.

    Would have preferred the "03-"04 Pacers team, but it's no big deal. This is still a top 3 or so Pacers team of all time. Not a terrible squad to have in the game.

    I really do like having the ability to have a prime Danny Granger and Tyson Chandler as well. Now for the final 4 teams my predictions will be based off of the 93 nets being included.
    92-93 Nets | 02-03 Nets
    93-94 Suns | 06-07 Spurs
    Others I would not mind seeing:y11:

    Accurate shoes and accessories is a good addition, but easily one of the least important features of classic players. Life will go on if the shoes are generic lol.

    Again...lets be real. If 2K didnt have authentic shoes in the game there would be 1,000,000 people cryin there eyes out about how 2K is lazy,dont care," live is better" and tons of other pathetic things to complain about. The same jokers who act like uts no big deal would be the SAME ones using it as another negative to pounce on.

    You have to relax a little. I'm extremely confident Tim will be in the game. And you'll get to use almost certainly a peak Tim Duncan with a rating between 97 and 99.
    Disclaimer: I'm a HUGE Spurs fan, so put those pitch forks down right now guys, but....
    I think one reason we may not see a more modern classic Spurs team is because many find them boring. The finals ratings always seems to drop when they get there. I think there is the possibility the devs just don't think enough of their audience would appreciate it. I've personally always wanted a '95 Spurs team. But now if in the all-time team I get that version of David Robinson, I am more than content.
    In the "shook trailer" the Bullets banner is showed in the background behind John Wall.   I think that was a nod to a 96-97 wizards team.  Not a team I would be excited about but a heck of a front court.  Calbert Cheney sucked as a 2G, loved Strickland though, I think he led the leauge in assist.

    I'm usually not one to read too much into random things but now that you mention it, that is kind of curious placement of a random Bullets banner.

    I don't know a ton about Verizon Center banners but it looks too generic to match anything that'd typically be hanging there.

    Plus, it's kind of seemed like 2K's been trying to knock down every team that didn't have a classic team yet leading up to this point and the Washington franchise is one of two yet to lay claim to a retro (the Los Angeles Clippers being the other).
    Chances seem slim with only three teams left (assuming the '93 Nets are legit), but I'm definitely pondering a 90's Bullets team more now than I was before reading your post.
    Edit: Also, regarding one of the other few possibilities for the remaining teams, here's the quote from 2K's Chris Manning after being asked whether Baron Davis could ever make an appearance with a classic team:
    "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."

    He seemed to emphasis the "we believe" portion, seemingly hinting at the 2007 "We Believe" Warriors. Or maybe I'm crazy.

    Sorry Guys. I didn't mean to scare anybody. I was just getting frustrated by lack of prime Spurs teams. Because three of the final 4 teams are likely-
    Prime Lob City Clippers (no Odom for earlier clips)
    Classic Wizards/Bullets team
    92-93 Nets
    So thats 1 last spot for 10 Lakers/11 Bulls/02 Nets/Any Spurs Team. Not including a prime Spurs team doesnt make any sense because you supposedly have every relevant players license. Also the "boring" angle went out the window when they included that boring and historically irrelevant 06 Grizzlies team.
    But we still have 4 more reveals so who knows! We will know all by Tuesday at 5 pm!
    Man gonna be really upset if they don't add one of the 2009-2010 Lakers championship teams, if it was between them and the 2004 Lakers I would've preferred Gasol/Kobe teams.

    I believe Granger was traded that year, to the Clippers in fact! But surely he'd make All Time Pacers team?
    finally we get a Pacers Team! though they Were really Good that year Ich wouldve rather seen the 03/04 Team with prime Ron artest, Jermaine oneal and Co. they could have left out reggie if He still refuses to be Ingame.

    the 13-14 pacers. Really?
    Smh they're just wasting space with some of this stuff now like come on. That team is not classic by any stretch. Paul George was not MVP. Hibbert was ok. Lance was decent. But they didn't do anything to be classic. Did they even make the conference finals in the east?

    Yes they did make the conference finals, were the #1 seed, and they would've made the finals too if Roy Hibbert didn't mysteriously lose his skills in the 2nd half of that season.
    I think the '12-'13 Pacers were a little better if you ask me, but for the resources 2k has, I think it was a decent pick, but not atrocious like the '06 Grizzlies.
    Before they announced Nuggets 08 i was thinking to the Hornets 08.
    It is an easy team to cop for 2k.
    16 classics teams, just 2 real classic teams Rightnow imo 97 and 99.
    Maybe later in the year 16 new classic will be announced with 2 other real classic team lol.
    Thanks for those pointing out the Bullets banner, but it's probably hanging there no? If not then maybe All-Time teams have a special arena with banners of each logo / era hanging around. For me, this is not a must buy yet since I'm a classic fanatic, but if we actually get the 93 Nets, a 90s Bullets / Wizards team and maybe even 93 Clippers / 06 Clippers that would go a long way.
    I know it's good for social media and marketing purposes to keep people in the dark so we can be excited about the reveals, but to me it would've been a decent thing to do if they said they'd include 12-14 more 2000s Classic Teams and then at the end in the blog gave us the few 90s teams as a bonus! That would've a nice surprise and kept us from getting our hopes up. It would've been a win-win in my opinion and saved a lot of anger, frustration, disappointment and attacks by people on twitter.
    P.S. Pacers team is an odd choice since it might not even include Granger. However, they have given us a classic team for every star (that has left recently) Paul George Pacers + Westbrook, Harden & Durant Thunder + Dirk Mavericks + Melo Nuggets + Chris Paul Hornets so even though Duncan is retired, a classic team for Parker - Ginobli would make sense with them almost out of the league too.

    They had to have a pacers team. Every NBA team is getting at least one. Without Reggie miller they had no choice here.

    They had a choice, a 90s / early 00s team without him. Plenty of great players on those teams, some already part of My Team, so they basically went the easier / cheaper route.

    Can't WAIT to see today's reveal.
    Might as well give us some teams from the 16-17 season and be done with it.

    Probably 13-14 Clippers vs. 13-14 Spurs. I personally would like 12-13 Clippers if they include a 'classic' recent team, because it had Grant Hill so we can at least use him. Still hoping for 2006 Clippers and then 2007 Spurs as the counter team. That Clippers team had a chance to go all the way!

    The amount of fans who love the classics and actually be happy with the inclusion would off-set that by far! They dared to include the Pistons without Rasheed and Suns without Nash so. Plus you can add Reggie through CAP

    And no one is happy about having the half assed 04 Pistons. I'm a piston fan and frankly I'd be thrilled if they didn't exist. Billups rip and Ben can be on the all time teams. Darko starting on the 04 Pistons is so insulting I dont even know where to begin.
    I'd love the classic pacers but without Reggie that's far cheaper than not having them at all. Don't sell me another half assed fraction of a classic team and call it legit.
    Smits Jackson etc. will be on the pacers all time team. If you want to build your own 2000 pacers roster just do it yourself.

    I believe Granger was traded that year, to the Clippers in fact! But surely he'd make All Time Pacers team?

    Thought the clippers picked up Danny Granger as a free agent going in the off-season for the 14-15 season?
    True, I think the 2005 should've been in instead with McDyess and Delfino. That's two who can replace Okur and Rasheed's absence. Still, it's good they have them so now we can add McDyess somehow via the All-Time teams.

    Lol oh get out of here with this bs video game pride lmao
    People would have still wanted to play with them with those players and been HAPPY. Never heard anybody(besides yourself) claim they would be "thrilled" lol to not have rip hamilton, ben wallace, chauncy billups, Tayshaun Prince,etc...lol thats bs and you know it; guys are happy to have them because its them and they only have to create one guy as opposed to the whole team; hell -- we've had guys saying they'd have taken the kings without webber again so they could play with bibby and peja. Don't try to cast that net on the rest of the classic team community. Keep that narrative over there lol
    Acting like 2k is personally attacking you by not having Rasheed Wallace on the pistons lmmfao
    How backwards is this logic. "Rik smits and couple other guys will be on the all time roster. You can make the team yourself" -- rather than have 2k just do it for you without reggie and we just have to make one player. Yeah that makes a ton of sense.
    Nah. With or without the 04 Pistons Ben rip and Chauncey will be in the game. It's a joke to have them on an 04 Pistons team without Rasheed. They'll be on the all time team anyway.
    You need to get over yourself. Without Reggie Miller there is no 90s pacers. Nobody gives a **** about them without Reggie and you can deal with it. If you need them that badly create them yourself and leave 2K alone. They were honest about what they could and could not do for classic fans. You're just whining for the sake of whining.
    I'll gladly take 3 more teams from 2015 before one more "classic" team missing a signature piece. Apparently you're the type that enjoys being pissed on so long as 2K tells you it's raining.

    Bitching and crying tears? This ALL you do in your posts Lmao I havent once said anything remotely close to that. All I did was support that others guys post you were quoting; trying to pretend people are skipping out on the game because Rasheed Wallac isnt on the pistons and then you became an emotional, blubbering wreck. Lol literal tears are your post. You allowing Rasheed Wallace bot being on the Pistons touch your soul is the bitchiest thing thats taken place here lol what? Then you tried to suggest to gim making several players somehow made more sense than making one guy and then proceeded to say you'd rather have a team from yesterday than a classic team missing one guy lol
    You're delusional as hell. I'm howling at how sensitive you are. Slowdown on your keyboard 😂😂
    Y’all are INSANE about these classic teams. 2K didn’t have to include any new teams, or 30 all time teams for every team.
    The 13-14 Pacers were one of the most entertaining, intimidating teams that I ever had the pleasure to watch. The matchups they had against James and the Heat were out of this world. I cannot wait to play with his Pacers team.
    This Hornets team brings me back to my NBA 2K8 playing days with CP3 on the cover. That series they had against the Spurs in the Playoffs was amazing.
    Just because SOME of you are unhappy with the classic teams, doesn’t mean others arent excited. The entitlement is real .

    Yep. The entitlement is a joke.
    The 08 Hornets are one of my favorite 2K teams ever. That 5 is nails. All-star David west, prime CP3, young Tyson, Peja and MoPete. That's a really dangerous team and one of the better pick and roll teams you'll ever see.
    They had the Spurs down 3-2 and really should have taken them out.
    Here are what we have so far....
    1997 Heat
    1999 Knicks
    2002 Kings
    2004 Lakers
    2006 Grizzlies
    2008 Nuggets
    2008 Hornets
    2011 Mavericks
    2012 Thunder
    2013 Grizzlies
    2014 Pacers
    2016 Warriors
    Slots remaining are 4 and the franchises still missing a classic team are 3. The 1993 Nets are rumored leaving the Clippers and Wizards as the 2 franchises without a classic team. My hopes are the* 2002 Clippers (my guess is the 2013 Clippers) and the 1997 Wizards (my guess is the the 2014 Wizards) that leaves one extra team left and I'm going with the 2007 Warriors or the 2003 Nets. I hope I'm wrong and I get to see a KJ lead Suns team (1990) and a Grant Hill lead Pistons team (1999) make the list but I highly doubt it.

    Would love the 01-02 Clippers with Miles, Richardson, Odom, Maggette, and Olowokandi and Brand

    06 Clippers were way better and really they have rights to most of the main weapons.
    Anyone know if the teams they added (I think in 16) are still there? 2012 Heat, 2011 Boston, Dallas Mavericks with Nash and so on? Are those still intact? Were any removed?

    I could be mistaken but I thought Steve Nash was originally on the '05 Suns when 2K16 released and he was removed for a few weeks at 2K17's release before being added back in. Seemed like there was a brief hang-up with his license.
    Rasheed Wallace's absence seemed like one of those situations where 2K was planning on having his rights then had something fall through toward the end of the process. It'd help explain why 2K added both the 2000 Blazers and the 2004 Pistons, two teams prominently featuring Wallace.
    One other thing working against an inclusion of a Reggie Miller-less Pacers team is his status as the number one name and face of those teams. In contrast, the 2004 Pistons were an All-Star ensemble where, if you were asked someone to name the No. 1 guy, you might get four different answers (not to mentioned Tayshaun Prince). The absence of Rasheed Wallace is still noticeable to anyone even vaguely familiar with that team, but you still at least have three all-stars and Tayshaun Prince holding down the fort (not to mention the 2004 technically played half of that season without Rasheed).

    I'm going to have to 100 percent disagree with you on this one. I know we spoke before and you're strictly an online guy so for you personally, the Pistons are a mess without Rasheed, Memo, and Corliss. But for anyone who uses these clubs offline (as I imagine many classic enthusiasts do), I'd hate for them to be removed just because a couple of guys I can create myself pretty well aren't in the game (aside from Memo, I can't create a good Memo).
    So, I'm actually pretty happy about having a 2004 Pistons team with Chauncey Billups, Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Ben Wallace, Lindsey Hunter, Darvin Ham, Darko Milicic, and Elden Campbell. That's eight guys I didn't have to create playing on the Pistons' authentic 2004 court with their 2004 uniforms. Ideally, I'd prefer a totally complete roster right on down to Tremaine Fowlkes in a suit on the sideline, but I'll take what we have any day of the week over nothing at all.
    I'm disappointed that a few of the teams I wanted were not added like the 90's pacers, but I certainly love the fact we're getting new ones. It's a good sign. Hopefully more for next year. I hope the faces on some of the legends are addressed finally. I would love to see Jordan look like Jordan again!

    Jordan mostly lost everything from 2k13 onwards. His ball fake was removed. 'The move' was removed as his runner. Then his leaner dunks. Then a couple of his sig layups. I believe he had 4 in his package, he now only has 2.
    Nerfed the GOAT pretty bad.

    Again...lets be real. If 2K didnt have authentic shoes in the game there would be 1,000,000 people cryin there eyes out about how 2K is lazy,dont care," live is better" and tons of other pathetic things to complain about. The same jokers who act like uts no big deal would be the SAME ones using it as another negative to pounce on.

    Don't get me wrong, authentic shoes are great and necessary. But having every retro team have it's players decked out in the exact shoes they wore isn't going to make or break the game.

    And don't forget how they messed up MJ's calf sleeve - when they made it too long, almost all the way to the sock.
    I hope they add back many of the players they removed from the squads already in the game (and we don't lose anymore) they add moves they removed... for me I wanted teams from before the 2000s really but I'll take anything 2010 and earlier and they have done a good job on the 2000-2010 area.
    wonder what they'll do with the DLC teams? will they just be in? 
    Thats kinda what they do with the WWE games.
    I just want to add one thing here.. if a team isn't playing in the upcoming '17-'18 season it is indeed a "classic" team.. doesn't really matter what you're opinion of them is, it's not a current team so therefor what else do you call it?

    Accurate shoes DO help the immersion IMO. But what is really frustrating is that last gen had many more retro shoe options. Even the option to equip players with Converse. I believe they went away with it because the shoes are scanned now, but still... If they can recreate faces without scans, shoes should be no problem. Its not that I expect perfection, just not regression.

    Like, that's 3 seasons ago lol But that's not a 50's team so it's not classic right?

    Hell for the sake of argument Prime Tim Duncan will probably be on the All-Time Spurs (with Manu and Tony) so you can just pluck them over from there and get started on your own 2000's Spurs team...

    I feel like it's probably going to be important to keep this quote in mind:
    That said, the inclusion of the '14 Pacers very likely means that Reggie Miller has continued to refuse to allow his likeness to be used.
    With three slots left, these picks also mean there's only two teams remaining who do not have classic team representative (assuming the '93 Nets are coming):
    Washington Wizards
    Los Angeles Clippers

    Thanks for the quote drop. I've been wanting to start a thread with something like that to keep posters in a little better perspective instead of just rage-like reaction but I'm always at work when they give the reveal, so cheers for that my man.
    Reggie is the hold up and 2k fans need to understand that.
    2k isn't blackballing him lol
    Not a Jordan-esque "I won't play for team America if Isiah Thomas is on the team" type of move ;)
    2k EASILY could've just said "We've added TWO NEW CLASSIC TEAMS, 98 HEAT AND 99 KNICKS!" and ended it with that.
    Instead we get 14 other teams with players we can move around ourselves, but I guess it's easier to act like spoiled children *sighs*

    Yes they did make the conference finals, were the #1 seed, and they would've made the finals too if Roy Hibbert didn't mysteriously lose his skills in the 2nd half of that season.
    I think the '12-'13 Pacers were a little better if you ask me, but for the resources 2k has, I think it was a decent pick, but not atrocious like the '06 Grizzlies.

    Lol Roy Hibbert is trash. Thats why he not in the NBA anymore. But. Hey. I only play Park/ProAm with friends anyway so this is of no interest to me.
    But this team is not a classic team and it won't be remembered for anything other than losing to Miami. But whatever floats your boat.

    So we shouldn't have any teams that didn't win the championship?
    Forget 2 ECF appearances in 3 years, having one of the best defenses of the decade.
    "They lost to Miami" lol ooooook.
    Hibbert made 2 all-star teams, but okay.
    He also averaged 22 and 10 against Miami in the 2013 conference finals. He absolutely could play. He's overweight and can't move anymore but in his prime he got a max contract.

    Might as well put Kobe/Dwight Lakers on the list at this point.

    Because a team that barely qualified as the 8 seed and got swept is totally comparable...
    These are fine with me.
    Since we have four unannounced teams left, and are seemingly getting the 92-93 Nets, here are three teams I'd love to see (without Barkley/Reggie):
    1969-70 Washington Bullets
    01-02 or 02-03 New Jersey Nets
    96-97 Detroit Pistons

    2K has had some questionable selections so be sure, but they have yet to feature a team that missed the playoffs entirely. The MJ wizards would be a first.
    Yea I'd rather have the 98 Bullets or 2006 Wizards. We got Prime MJ in the game ffs. We don't need the Wizards years. I enjoyed him in Washington during that time but it's not needed in the video game.

    Dwight shouldn't even get a classic team imo. Just throw him on the All time Magic where he can come off the bench for the Real Superman.

    Nah, Dwight would start.
    Under the Orlando Banner he played more games than Shaq, Has over twice as many rebounds as Shaq, like 500+ more blocks than Shaq, Leads the franchise in points with 3k+ more than Shaq, Leads win shares by quite a bit, Made 6 All-Star teams as a magic, 3x DPOY awards as a magic, Made a finals appearance like Shaq. He is the All-Time Center for the Franchise. As great as Shaq is, I'm not sure he starts on any of the All-Time teams he'll make(ORL, LAL, & MIA).
    Shaq is the biggest name in Orlando Magic History with Penny, Dwight and T-Mac behind him. Yes he will start on that team. If anything 2k will throw Dwight at starting Power Forward but in my game he's going right to the bench where he belongs.
    Also keep in mind that this is the same addition with Shaq as the poster boy of the legends edition.

    Okay, let me rephrase that. He shouldn't be the starting center...

    Lol oh get out of here with this bs video game pride lmao
    People would have still wanted to play with them with those players and been HAPPY. Never heard anybody(besides yourself) claim they would be "thrilled" lol to not have rip hamilton, ben wallace, chauncy billups, Tayshaun Prince,etc...lol thats bs and you know it; guys are happy to have them because its them and they only have to create one guy as opposed to the whole team; hell -- we've had guys saying they'd have taken the kings without webber again so they could play with bibby and peja. Don't try to cast that net on the rest of the classic team community. Keep that narrative over there lol
    Acting like 2k is personally attacking you by not having Rasheed Wallace on the pistons lmmfao

    This is such an ignorant comment. Some people do play PNO with the historical teams once they're unlocked. PNO plays CAN'T use created players.
    I would be livid if they gave us a 90's Pacers team with no Reggie Miller and a bunch of nobodies.
    As a side note and a Pacers fan, this is a great non-Miller team selection. Before the ASB, they had the best defense in NBA HISTORY. They had the largest point differential of all NBA teams that season. Lastly, this is pre-injured Paul George when he was a dunking machine. Lance was coming off an All-Star snub and was a Top 3 players for triple doubles, Hibbert was one of the best rim protectors in the game before the rise of "small ball", and David West was a mid-range King.
    I can't wait to play with this team, and I REALLY hope they let PNO players use them immediately or make them easier to unlock instead of having to unlock them by getting a high rank.
    Secretly, I hope we get to use Granger. He was one of my favorite players and was a beast in NBA 2K11.

    Or 1995. Or 2004...
    Really, you can pick any number of classic Pacers teams Reggie Miller refuses to participate with...

    Exactly. Are people not understanding that those teams can't be used due to the exclusion of Miller??? What's the point of having a classic team if you can't use the Star that defined the team? That's like having a Jazz team with no Stockton/Malone. Who would want to use that team.
    I can't see anyone tripping over themselves to play with Smits, Jackson, Jalen Rose, Davis, etc, but no Reggie Miller.

    With u. I didnt play the classic SAC Kings in the past 2k series. Where's the fun to run that team without Webber?

    Webber was initially a part of that Kings team in 2K12. He withdrew in 2K13 but all his signature information remained (jump shot and free throw, primarily). People made some pretty legit Webber replicas that year.
