    Sprewell was on 1999 team
    I know but I hope they got his rights in game. I also hope 2k got Anthony Mason back as well....

    Loving this!!!
    Now just need to see how the players look/move.
    Be such a shame if these teams are all hell generic.....
    Lakers All Time squad looked good. Gives me a little hope...... Heat All Time squad only showed 2 guys..... which reduced my hope haha.
    We'll wait and see I guess.

    He was on the 98-99 team....

    well I am not sure what 2K meant by 98, usually 98 would mean 1997-1998 season.
    Sprewell Knicks would make more sense:p
    edit: nvm I saw the image, you are right
    cthurt
    Hope they stick with the 90s teams

    Some good 80s teams(Mavs) and early 2000s teams(Nets,Bucks, Wizards with MJ, Kings..) That I want also...
    Goffs

    He is.
    That was a dope team they added. Young KG, Wally, Cassell, Spree...
    97 Heat and 99 Knicks!
    I guess we're getting the rest in 10 days. That's cool
    Nice start 2K. Two teams that were on most people's lists.
    Now, the subplot to this is how many of the following players did 2K acquire the rights to...
    Kurt Thomas (he was important to both teams)
    Marcus Camby (can't have the 99 Knicks without that 3rd best player)
    Voshon Lenard (not super critical since they have majerle already but he was the starting SG on Miami)
    PJ Brown (heart and soul of the 90s heat next to Zo)
    Charlie Ward (or Chris Childs, but Ward was the starting PG for NY. Obviously they need one at least)
    Chris Dudley (sound stupid since they will have Ewing of course but he was hurt for most of the playoff run so to get the true 99 Knicks feel having him is a must)
    Goffs
    I know but I hope they got his rights in game. I also hope 2k got Anthony Mason back as well....

    Why wouldn't they? Sprewell's a part of the 2004 T-wolves in 2k17. Don't think anythings changed.
    Nitpicking, I know, but I wish they knew you're supposed to refer to retro teams by the LATER year, because that's when the majority of the season takes place.
    Imagine if I said "the 1993 Rockets won the title."
    You'd then respond "No, they lost to Seattle in the second round. They won it the next year."
    Still nice to see these two here, though. Pre-kidney Alonzo!
    Anyway, speaking of the Rockets, I'm personally hoping for the 1986 team that made the Finals, if only because I still remember them having to censor Ralph Sampson's name in 2K12.
    No lie. I've been on an old school basketball binge the past several days and I watched the 97 Heat vs the 97 Bulls ECF. I said, "man, I hope we get one of these 90s Heat teams! Hardaway and Mourning!" Got one of the ones I wanted. Great to see 99 Knicks, yes!
    Disappointed we have to wait until August 25th for the full reveal. Jeez.
    I hope Sprewell gets an update. The one in last years game looks like him now at 46 rather than what he looked like playing for Minnesota.

    8 guys already in the game for that Knicks team. Even if they dont get the rest its only 5 guys to make. That heat team is a different story. They would have to license some key players to make that work since only 5 were in 2k17. Announce the 89-90 Suns next please.... then just make sure all teams get represented with a classic team.
    03-04 Grizz
    01-02 Clipps (please give us this team please)
    Any J Kidd Nets team.
    Jordan/Stack Wiz team
    Malace at the Palace Indy team (we'll make Reggie)
    Either the 00-01 or the 01-02 Kings
    88 mavs.
    99-00 Pistons
    The 91-92 Nets with Coleman, Anderson, Petro.
    The We-Believe Warriors.
    Thats 13 total with a good amount of licensed players from last year. The other teams can be what ever but i would be stoked if the 00-01 bucks make it and a Green and Yellow sonics team makes it.

    Has anybody posted what these teams rosters were
    1997 Heat
    Tim Hardaway

    Voshon Lenard
    Dan Majerle
    P.J. Brown
    Jamal Mashburn
    Isaac Austin
    Keith Askins
    Willie Anderson
    John Crotty
    Mark Strickland
    Ed Pinckney
    1999 Knicks
    Latrell Sprewell
    Charlie Ward
    Allan Houston
    Marcus Camby
    Patrick Ewing (injured in Finals)
    Chris Childs
    Larry Johnson
    Chris Dudley
    Kurt Thomas
    Rick Brunson
    Herb Williams
    Dennis Scott*
    David Wingate*
    *Regular season guys but probably added to roster because they're already in 2K
    I really hope they show these 90s teams some love and give them accurate uniforms. Really hoping we can get both black and red heat jerseys. Those were sick.
    These two teams caught me way off guard, but in a great way. I was 83 percent sure all the new teams were going to come from the new millennium due to their ease of creation and recency bias. Granted, there's still some great post-millennium possibilities (I expect we'll see a few on the horizon) but this is pretty awesome for now.
    On top of the coolness of having a prime Latrell Sprewell Knicks team and a dangerous Heat squad, these teams are also a great addition because it provides additional key opponents for existing classic teams. I imagine there will be a number of folks who will change the 1998 Spurs to the 1999 Spurs (basically adding Mario Elie, Steve Kerr, and Antonio Daniels) so the 1999 Finals can be replayed.
    And with the Miami Heat, we now will have a modern Eastern Conference challenger for the Chicago Bulls of that era. It'll be nice not having to always play the '96 Sonics or '98 Jazz over and over (Chicago beat Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals in '97).

    Pippen got a big knot on his four head by Zo (still a cheap shot idc what he claimed).  Elbowed him like macho man Randy Savage.   Mike went Ham in game  5.  I'm concerned no Pacers team because these are 2 90's eastern conference teams.

    Cool, I commented the original 2K tweet which mentioned the '96 Heat and '98 Knicks.

    There are two ways to look at this:
    1) When you say "2007 NBA Champs" it's the team that won the 06'-'07 season.
    2) The way 2k tweeted it is how it works in regards to seasons (in my mind, anyway). If you say "The 2007 NBA season" my mind goes to the '07-'08 season since it started in 2007.
    So, I can see why 2k Tweeted it the way they did.

    This photo reminds me... Larry Johnson's signature "L" celebration will finally make sense this year. He didn't develop that motion until he arrived in New York but I'll be doggone if 1993 Charlotte Hornets Larry Johnson didn't throw the L up every 37 seconds in 2K17. I wasn't too phased by it; I was actually more pleased that 2K cared enough to investigate and implement a classic player's celebration. But still.

    NBA has almost universally always referred to their seasons by the year in which they end, in part because of the reason you mentioned (it aligns with the year a championship is won). The Pistons won their first franchise championship in the '89 season, for instance. And Hakeem Olajuwon was the '94 season MVP. The Bulls went back-to-back-back in '91, '92, and '93. So on and so forth.
    2 great additions! Hoping for Barkley Suns, R. Miller Pacers, 86 Rockets, & the 87 Jazz & or 87 Mavericks... Wishful thinking I'm sure. But with all the all time classic teams in as well I can't wait to see what some of the rosters guys put together.

    And we can play a matchup between the 95 Magic and the 97 miami heat instead of playing against the 95 Knicks over and over also.
    Am I the only person who could care a less if Reggie Miller of all players makes a 2k classic team? It's seems every year he's the main name that pops up. So many better players than him throughout league history that could be featured.

    Yeah massively overrated player but him and those Pacers team define the lore of the 90's and make for some match ups against the teams already in
    We should have a trailer coming tomorrow w/ Mobb Deep as the "Shook Ones" as the song. Guessing that's what Ronnies hitting at.

    The only reason why I wish for a reggie pacers team so I can revisit that eastern conference finals matchup between the magic and pacers of 1995. That series was epic. And have a Jordan vs Miller matchup. My Bulls did not like those pacers teams.

    I'd love to have him on board but I actually think the obsession over his and Charles Barkley's absence is a testament to how well 2K nailed things back in 2K12. There's definitely some Reggie and Chuck fans out there who are dying to be able to play as their favorite players but generally speaking, I think their absence has been such a big deal because they're just about the only modern superstars missing. We yearn for Reggie because we don't have to yearn for, say, Patrick Ewing. We yearn for Charles Barkley because we don't have to yearn for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
    I say this lightheartedly but if Chuck and Reggie came on board, sometimes I feel like we'd be happy for a week then come back here to start the petition to acquire the rights to Bernard King and, I dunno, Rod Strickland or something.
    Ugh...It's nice to have these teams, but 2K's announcements regarding the classic teams are really lacking. Just give us the full roster list. People shouldn't speculate which players made it and which didn't. Why not just give us a year without the team's name?
    It's like a Yada Yada story...

    For me it's not so much the players in Barkley & Miller. Both teams were solid. Finals teams... The sonics had some great playoff battles with the Jazz, Rockets,, Suns & the same go's with the great rivalries between the Heat, Knicks, Pacers, & Bulls in the 90's...
    As is and has been is we had no Pacers or Suns representation for classic teams outside created players.
    I'd love to set up a playoff bracket that looked like this... (might have some of my years off)
    Western Conference
    1) 87 Lakers
    8) 91 Warriors
    5) 00 or 91 Blazers
    4) 02 Spurs
    3) 93 Suns
    6) 96 Sonics
    7) 97 Jazz
    2) 94 Rockets
    Eastern Conference
    1) 96 Bulls
    8) 97 Heat
    5) 99 Knicks
    4) 99 Pacers
    3) 89 Pistons
    6) 83 76ers
    7) 85 Hawks
    2) 86 Celtics

    I don't ever see anyone overrating him as a player. You can't really overrate him as a shooter -- however, he's a beloved player because of his clutch abilities, on court antics and rivalries. Guys are thirsting for much lesser players than Reggie. Lol you can't really overrate 25,279 points in the NBA....
    ....Outside of Reggie and of course the C-Webbs, Chuck and Grant requests you'll be hard pressed to come up with better players that are also more iconic/popular than him that aren't included. I'd be interested in seeing that list of better players that could be featured that people actually want. It's not like the want to play as him is unwarranted.

    I can't really agree with this. This makes it seem more like they are novelty players when really they are two of the greatest players in the history of the NBA and Hall of famers. People want them for that reason.
    It's not say, a season specific version of a legend -- e.g. Wizards MJ. Yeah we'd forget about that. Because we have a better version of him, the version that fueled his lore. People want to play as that suns team WITH Charles. That Pacers team WITH Reggie. They want them to be entities in their MyLeague seasons, etc....
    It's sorta ridiculous to think people want them because their aren't bigger superstars to want and not because people actually want to play as them.

    Perhaps my point was muddled. I, too, would like have Reggie Miller, Charles Barkley, Chris Webber and each of their corresponding classic teams accounted for. I'd love for my 2004 Pistons to have a 2004 Pacers counterpart (and the Bulls and Knicks another 90's counterpart). I'd love to finally have those sunburst jerseys used properly on an authentic '93 America West Arena and the return of a Chris Webber Kings team and maybe a Bullets squad would be super peachy for a Michigan guy like myself.
    I'm just saying the absence of Reggie and Charles has kind of taken on a life of its own. Again, I get that those guys and their teams are yearned for. I'm there with you guys. But we've just about reached a point where I'm not entirely sure people are joking when they hint that their absence might be a game-breaker for them, as if we don't have at least 70 of the top 100 players of all-time already included in the game.
    Perhaps I'm saying that I'm not sure any additions could fully satiate our desires for classic teams. Our attention would just move to whatever's next on the missing list. Maybe that's a good thing, I don't know.
    Why do I want Barkley in the game? Because this is what he looked like last time I used him for a season. That's him throwing it down.

    I've played a couple seasons with classic teams. They haven't been roster accurate and they've represented different years but I've had a lot of fun recreating the 90's. Having Miller and Barkley would really be cool!

    Hell yes!!! 99 Knicks is the obvious choice and 97 Heat definitely another great choice, both on my wanted + expected list. I really hope the key players are there, because there's so many missing on some of the classics like:
    - Derek Fisher, Jermaine O'Neal, Rasheed Wallace, Raja Bell, Steve Nash, Carl Herrera + Brian Williams (Bison Dele), Anthony Mason, Moses Malone due to death. Still hope somehow they can get their rights back.
    Personally I would love the Pacers and Suns in, they are classic without Barkley & Reggie Miller. Kevin Johnson and company + Mark Jackson, Smits, Davis brothers etc. is still great to play with.
    They are putting plenty of teams in without key players. Look at 2k16, it had 2 teams with Steve Nash as the main guy alongside another, but he was key and not in! There's no good reason to have an excuse now that without those idiots, they didn't want to put those teams in.
    Marcus Camby will be fun as hell to play with. You can go for every shot block and he can outrun any big.
    Also, it may mean the Iverson/JR/Melo Nuggets may be in.
    I think the roof is gonna blow off if we get a Pacers and Suns team - I dunno what it is, but I get the feeling we just may be in luck this year.......
    I'll expect the worst, but hope for the best!!
    On second thought, considering Kurt Thomas was traded for Jamal Mashburn, it would be awkward if they were both on the 97 Heat roster...
    sapo89
    What about Sasha Danilovic? Was he in 97 Heat roster? Is there any chance to be in?

    He was traded mid-season with Kurt Thomas for Jamal Mashburn.

    Yea well in order for Camby to be Camby, the gameplay in terms of individual physicality on the court has to be well diversified and be seen otherwise Camby will only be more or less like 2k17 Gobert, if you know what i mean..
    For everybody wondering who will/should be on these 2 Classic Teams:
    '96-'97 Miami Heat Playoffs Roster (12 players)
    Tim Hardaway, Alonzo Mourning, Jamal Mashburn, Voshon Lenard, P.J. Brown, Dan Majerle, Isaac Austin,
    Willie Anderson, Keith Askins, John Crotty, Mark Strickland, Ed Pinckney
    Not in Playoffs but on the roster: Gary Grant, Matt Fish, Bruce Bowen (3 players)
    '98-'99 New York Knicks Playoffs Roster (11 players)
    Allan Houston, Patrick Ewing, Larry Johnson, Latrell Sprewell, Charlie Ward, Chris Childs, Kurt Thomas,
    Marcus Camby, Chris Dudley, Herb Williams, Rick Brunson
    Not in Playoffs but on the roster: David Wingate, Ben Davis, Mirsad Turkcan (3 players)
    Dennis Scott (Not in Playoffs: March 13, 1999: Waived by the New York Knicks.)
    Buck Williams (Not in Playoffs: January 27, 1999: Retired from the New York Knicks.)

    For me it's a love and hate thing with these teams lol. Obviously I loved the era, but I hated the play then. I hated that slow, bang en up, basketball style they had. These were the teams that got alot of the rules changed.

    Right there with you. But I like variety with my basketball. It's what makes the classic teams so valuable. Outside of the Grizzlies you don't see gritty basketball anymore. If I want to play a traditional inside/outside offense, I can't really use any 2017 teams. It's all about drive and kick now.
    At least the heat and Knicks had some firepower. They just played a really slow pace and played really physical defense.

    Thanks for the videos! I know about the JVG grabbing incident, but didn't know these two teams had some great rivalry with 3 straight play-offs facing each other and things got heated. Makes the inclusion of both even better, because the roster of the 97-99 Heat was not that different year-to-year. Knicks obviously without Starks & Oakley, but with Camby & Sprewell to compensate so great to re-create this rivalry in a play-off setting :D

    Chuck makes more sense to me because he's the caliber of player as those other guys. He spent his entire career making the All-NBA ranks, won an MVP, competed for other MVPs, tons of all star games, etc.. Reggie was mostly a fringe all star level guy most of his career.
    Having a Pacers team would be understandable, especially late 90's or the 2000 team that played in the finals. Miller, Davis, Smits, Rose, Jackson would be a nice group to play with. But the obsession with wanting Reggie always just seemed bizarre to me.

    It was actually 4 straight years with the Knicks and heat, all of them going to the final game.
    Heat were the higher seed all 4 years and lost 3 of them.

    And even barely about drive now. It's so different. I do miss post play. I miss big men who had skills around the rim.

    Well, you were allowed to really drop the hammer on defense back then.
    The biggest problem was really that they played almost the same style. Against other teams they were pretty entertaining but vs each other it was like a mirror match.

    Yep. Very similar. Those series had some hilariously low scores too. It's just that Knicks/heat didn't have a Reggie Miller to distract everyone.

    The 2017 Cavs & Warriors score more in a quarter than those teams did in a half!! That's my time though. Those games had an intensity for me that can't be matched today. When I watch a game today where no one is in the paint but rather around the three point line it blows my mind. Lol!!

    I always said to myself the 90s Knicks-Heat's slugfests are responsible for today's free flowing game. Those games were so ugly to some that it spurred rule changes to help the offense.

    Give me those early competitive games over today's any day of the week. Sure the fighting and cheap shots were over the top sometimes, but can you honestly say you've seen a lot of true competitive series like those in the 80s and 90s (Eastern Conference) in this era? Today's play-offs are mostly boring shoot-outs, blow outs and whistle parties for the least bit of contact.

    Thats why I wish MJ had never retired the first time. The 1994 playoffs would have been so hotly competitive and at the end we wouldve witnessed one of the greatest finals series ever between the bulls and rockets. The 1993 playoffs is still considered as one of the greatest playoffs ever because of how competitive each game was in both conference.

    Oh I agree. Those were some fierce battles and rivalries. Seemed at least on the court players/teams truly disliked each other. Today all the top players want to do is play with each other. Golden era was at least in my lifetime the 80s and 90s.

    You really don't :lol:
    But seriously some people like that style, but give me today's free-flowing game (or the game of the 70s) over those slogs anyday.
    If anything, it would be cool to see like 1-2 teams in today's NBA play that way just as a difference/juxtaposition to the high pace of everyone else.

    Right there with you. But I like variety with my basketball. It's what makes the classic teams so valuable. Outside of the Grizzlies you don't see gritty basketball anymore. If I want to play a traditional inside/outside offense, I can't really use any 2017 teams. It's all about drive and kick now.
    At least the heat and Knicks had some firepower. They just played a really slow pace and played really physical defense.

    Knicks didn't have fire power we were putrid offensively but in that slow paced era a good defense was enough and we peaked at the right time.
    In a series I'll take the 2013 Knicks any day over the 1999 Knicks.

    Chuck makes more sense to me because he's the caliber of player as those other guys. He spent his entire career making the All-NBA ranks, won an MVP, competed for other MVPs, tons of all star games, etc.. Reggie was mostly a fringe all star level guy most of his career.
    Having a Pacers team would be understandable, especially late 90's or the 2000 team that played in the finals. Miller, Davis, Smits, Rose, Jackson would be a nice group to play with. But the obsession with wanting Reggie always just seemed bizarre to me.

    Lmao this Reggie slander has to stop. It comes off as oblivious.
    It's not like he was just an "okay" player. He's 19th on the all-time scoring list and scoring doesn't make you a better player then the people you have more points than but lets put this into perspective. He's scored more points All-Time than: Jerry West, Ray Allen, Allen Iverson, Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, David Robinson, George Gervin, Mitch Richmond, Dwayne Wade won't catch him. Carmelo will catch him, Vince Carter may or may not catch him. We don't question the desire people have for these players....Only Reason KG and Paul Pierce have more points than him is because they stuck around 3 or so years too long lmao He averaged more points his last year than Paul did his last 4 years. He averaged more points his last year than KG did his last 5-6 seasons. What's bizarre is this narrative that he was some basic player.
    He only made 5 All-Star Teams because obviously Jordan's spot was not for sale and he constantly was battling other really good guards in the east and All NBA comes down to league wide instead of conference exclusive. In a Juiced up 80s-90s making a 3rd All NBA team is impressive to me.
    Was he an MVP? No. Did he win a ring? No.(But Neither do a lot of these guys w/o teaming up). But he was a great personality, Clutch performer, shooter that held numerous records.
    The publics desire to play with him and his teams is not bizarre. Its warranted. You just don't understand is all. I see guys on this forum thirsting for lesser players than Reggie Miller. Like Stever Francis or White Chocolate lol or Anthony Mason(God rest his soul).
    I've always said that Reggie is the most overrated player from the 90s. He's been propped up because of a few big playoff moments. He was a very good player but he was not in the same class as the original Dream Team guys.

    I'm not trying to minimize your passion and I don't mean to speak for OJ, but I'm not sure he meant things to be taken this seriously. Suggesting he's oblivious and doesn't understand at all seems a little harsh considering his initial comments.
    Everyone here would love to have Reggie Miller on board, as stated numerous times. It's just some people are fascinated by how fixated some have become with his addition. It's not right or wrong, just interesting. But as mentioned elsewhere, that fixation will probably always be there for someone as long as great players like Miller aren't included.

    That's my thing. Everybody plays a similar style now. I get the efficiency and all that but it just doesn't grab me. Matter of taste. The three has kind of replaced the dunk as the big moment in a game. Used to be a nasty dunk would get the crowd going and the team pumped but now it's the three.
    I just wish there was more variety but that inside out style wouldn't win today.

    It was actually 4 straight years with the Knicks and heat, all of them going to the final game.
    Heat were the higher seed all 4 years and lost 3 of them.

    Very true, the only series the Heat won was the 1997 playoffs, and they won that by luck. That year the 1997 Knicks had a very dominant team in the playoffs and everyone wanted to see them go against the 97Bulls in the Eastern Finals. That was the year the Knicks were dominating the Heat in the playoffs and got up to 3-1 in the series until PJ Brown threw Charlie Ward in the stand and that fight broke out and the NBA Suspended Ewing, Starks, LJ and others multiple games the rest of that series and the Heat came back and won the series because of the suspensions. I remember alot of people were pump to see the 97 Bulls vs 97 Knicks in the playoffs until that mess happen. Then the Heat went on to get there butt kicked by MJ and Bulls.

    Uh heck no. Once Allan Houston and Sprewell got rolling they were hard to stop. That 2013 Knicks teams just looked good on paper to me in my opinion.

    Saw both teams I don't think so. The '99 Knicks couldn't score 26th best offense in a putrid offensive league. Sprewell and Houston weren't that good and definitely no prime Melo. The 2013 Knicks helped set a precedent for three point shooting and broke three point records, when they got going they'd shoot you out the gym. They won 54 games, the '99 Knicks weren't on that type of win pace in a lockout shortened season. Don't see how a team trading 2's for 3's that struggled to crack 90 points is keeping up.

    They better have full rosters, because the treatment of classic teams is getting ridiculous.

    The roster creation is very very good. The guys that filled up the classic teams for NBA 2k17 were awesome and you didn't know they were created players. Even better the announcers called most of them out by name. I agree, it stinks that there are too many generic bench players, but create a player is your friend! :popcorn:

Just give us that 92-93 team without Barkley and you still have a great one! No reason for 2k not to include them and a Pacers team of the 90s.

    Oh never fear my friend, absolutely. If you go to the rosters forum on here, you can download the fillin roster for the Classic teams. Now for the starters, you can't change their face, but you can make a player from scratch and put them on a historic team and share them to the community. No worries there. They've been doing that since 2k12.

    I don't think there's a chance to be honest. I just wish they would comment on the elephant in the room, why not just add the teams even without those guys? I really think Barkley & Reggie would sue 2k, that's the only reasonable explanation. They just don't want anything affiliated with their character in any game.

    Yeah, it'd be nice if they made those teams anyway, I agree. But 2K has kind of had a habit of dropping squads that lose their top players. The 2002 Kings bounced when they lost Webber and the mid-80s Sixers were probably doomed from the start (losing Barkley, Erving, and Malone at different times).
    Also, I reckon there'd be a healthy backlash if they announced the inclusion of the '93 Suns only for gamers to realize there was no Charles Barkley.

    Exactly man, been watching NBA ball since the late 80's, that 2013 team looked good on paper, that is it. It's funny to me when people try to point out good stats on teams that were not that good instead of how the players actually played and there skill.

    Man. You're entitled to your opinion, but this is just wrong lol. Nostalgia is a powerful thing. But the game these days isn't just guys sitting on the 3 point line chucking. Offenses have never been more advanced than they are now. Defense is still allowed. It's still a big part of the game. It's just that players across the board are more talented. Offenses are more prolific because of strategy and skill. Positional fluidity is in a place where guys 15 years ago couldn't have envisioned. Small ball being your overwhelmingly best lineup? Inconceivable. And competitiveness still exists. Even though I think this year was pretty insane. But also the truly competitive NBA you guys like to talk about has never existed the way you think. A competitive playoff series or finals? Sure. But almost every single season you could point out 4 teams that you thought would win it, and one of them would. Bill Russell won 11 rings. The Lakers and Celtics traded back and forth in the 80's, which was ended by the Pistons going back to back. The Bulls destroyed the 90's, and without question would've won 8 in a row if MJ hadn't retired the first time. The league was never as competitive as people make it out to be. It's always been domination driven, and one dynasty after the other. As for the Cavs and Warriors.. It's on the league to improve, not on two teams to get worse.
    Try and appreciate the historically great teams you're seeing. Try and appreciate the fantastic talent and skill across this NBA. It's disingenuous to pretend this league isn't the best it's ever been, as a whole and you're only hurting yourselves by not appreciating it. Hating isn't satisfying.

    Yes. I can. Because I don't wear my rose colored glasses all day. It's not like players these days stopped caring, and aren't intense. The 15-16 playoffs were fantastic, and the finals too (even though we lost in heartbreaking fashion.) You've just got this recency bias going on because of these playoffs where you had two all time great teams running the table.

    Man. Do you even watch today's games? LeBron throwing down a tomahawk is 100% more crowd engaging than him draining a 3. I just don't see how you can have this opinion that its only 3's or that all teams run the same offense. I really think you need to watch more games. And do yourself a favour.. Take off the nostalgia glasses when you do. You might enjoy it more.

    Let me make this clear. In no way am I disrespecting the modern teams. I wouldn't pick any older team over the Cavs or the Warriors. Too much offense from too many positions. Literally both teams can put 5 players on the floor at the same time, each capable of getting 20 points. The average player is better today. Shooting is too good. Benches are too talented. There were super talented teams the Bird's Celtics & Magic's Lakers but they didn't have the perimeter scoring to keep up. It's a completely different game. I'm just talking about what I prefer. I enjoyed the NBA more in the 80's & 90's. Not saying it's better. Sorry to detail the thread there. Anyway....

    Hope 2K change the FT form for the pre-95 MJ. As you can see, prime MJ raises arms and bend knees AT THE SAME TIME.
    Also, hand size and mental strength should matter in the game especially for MJ. The ball should be somewhat glued to his hands because of his gigantic hands, strength and mentality. Even when he literally gets smacked on the head by multiple defenders or shoved in mid-air for a potential injury, the dude just doesn't lose control. It's sad how 2K act like MJ is some soft generic superstars that you see today so that kids can own MJ with their favorite players in the game.

    lol right because MJ is the only player to ever be able to do things of this nature

    2 great additions! Hoping for Barkley Suns, R. Miller Pacers, 86 Rockets, & the 87 Jazz & or 87 Mavericks... Wishful thinking I'm sure. But with all the all time classic teams in as well I can't wait to see what some of the rosters guys put together.

    maybe the likelihood that a 90's heat team with the addition of dan Marlaje being introduced may increase the possibility of a possible phoenix suns team at the very least and at most the coveted barkley team from 1993. I think with this announcement we may expect to see a pistons grant hill team!

    PJ Brown was very underrated. Can't wait to play around with that team.

    He wasn't on the 08 Celtics in 2k16 and 2k17, better pray...
    Somebody help me out. Do we have confirmation that it's 97 & 99, & not 96 & 98? On today's tweet Ronnie 2k is still saying 96 heat/98 Knicks. All other teams listed are clearly the year the season ended on, 2012 Thunder are the 2011/2012 Thunder. Why with just these 2 team are they going by the year the season started?
