NBA 2K18 All-Time Rosters Revealed For All 30 Teams

2K has released NBA 2K18 All-Time rosters for all 30 NBA teams. As noted in the past, not all players will be in the game and that isn’t the fault of 2K. Players have to be in the retired players association or have a deal with 2K. For a variety of reasons, some players simply don’t like video games and don’t want to be associated with it, period.

Check them out below and post your thoughts!

  1. Man, I love these all-time teams. With these teams, plus the classic teams, the roster creators should have a field day with classic squads and seasons.

    Easier to read here ;)
    Some really great players in there, even if they aren't necessarily deemed classic! Very surprised and excited about:
    - Danny Manning & Maggette - Clippers
    - Abdur-Rahim - Grizzlies
    - Augmon - Hawks
    - Seikaly - Heat
    - Glen Rice - Hornets
    - Eaton & Kirilenko - Jazz
    - Richmond & Theus - Kings
    - Houston, Monroe & Bernard King - Knicks
    - Mikan, Cooper, Baylor & Wilkes - Lakers
    - Triple J (Jason Kidd, Jamal Mashburn & Jim Jackson) - Mavericks
    - Petrovic & Anderson - Nets
    - Lever, Alex English, Issel, McDyess & Kiki - Nuggets
    - Jermaine O'neal, Artest, Rik Smits, Rose, Davis & Jackson - Pacers
    - David Wesley - Pelicans
    - Grant Hill & Stackhouse - Pistons
    - Murphy, Sampson, Hayes & Mobley - Rockets
    - Gervin & Rodman - Spurs
    - Chambers, KJ, Majerle, Barbosa & Ceballos - Suns
    - Lenny Wilkens, Xavier & Dale Ellis - Thunder
    - Cassell, Isaiah Rider, Leattner, Sprewell & Marbury - Twolves
    - Walton & Rod Strickland - Blazers
    - Rick Barry & Sleepy Floyd - Warriors
    - Muresan & BOL!!! - Wizards
    Notable misses: Rasheed Wallace, Reggie Miller, Charles Barkley, Juwan Howard, Anthony Mason, Marcus Camby, Rudy Tomjanovich, Moses Malone, Michael Adams, Brandon Roy, Greg Oden.
    Steve Kerr over Ben Gordon? No way Steve Kerr should be an all time player on any team. He wasn't that good to even be an 81. Also BJ Armstrong a 85? He is not an 85 even in his prime. Thank God it's editable. Also it's a slap in the face to put Supersonics greats in OKC. smh

    Too bad Sheed still isn't in...

    Probably the biggest miss for me, besides the obvious Miller and Barkley. Hopefully we get some great CAPS this year to fill the void.

    Yeah, some of these guys are rated a lot higher than they should be. I wonder for the people that have been around since the 2k franchise has existed, did they use their peak overall rating for those guys
    I don't care what the haters and complainers say about these teams. I'm just glad they finally took all of their myteam players and gave them to us outside of myteam. Wished they did it sooner, but I'm very happy to have more players to use this year.

    Steve Kerr in his peak is lower than an 81 and BJ Armstrong is not an 85 at his peak lol

    They missed on Reggie Lewis =(
    But I'm really happy with all the player they added to the game!

    I'm confused why the Clippers doesn't have Sam Cassell, Cat Mobley, Chris Kaman, Lamar Odom, or Elton Brand on it

    I'm assuming they didn't want to have too much overlap. Cassell & Mobley are in on other teams. Odom & Brand probably didn't get the rights to. I do find it odd that Al Jefferson is on 3 freaking All-Time teams, but we can edit them, thank God!!
    I cant believe "Sonics" (Thunder) Ray Allen is a 95 while Bucks Ray Allen is only a 90. Thats like the difference between a "star" and a "all time great". Bucks Ray Allen needs to be bumped up at least 2 or 3 points.

    I wish it was like 2K where there are different features that are clearly meant for certain players. For example Sheed's hair with the random bald spot or a jumpshot that's obviously Reggie's. One thing that has always made the WWE CAW system great is that they have everything you need to create missing wrestlers.

    Overlap goes out the window because you said it yourself, Al Jefferson is on 3 teams. Cat and Sam are from arguably the most successful Clippers team ever.

    Reggie Lewis, Scott Skiles, Grant Long...
    How come no bob Dandridge on the wizards squad? He won a ring with them and made an all nba team. I guess this means they didn't get the rights to antawn Jamison either? Also sad this Means no Moses Malone he should be on the 76ers Rockets and the wizards

    The big debate now is do I use these players mixed in with today's roster? Obviously these players were rated on a different scale.

    The idea is they are rated based on the best they played for that team it seems. And some ratings are misleading. Kevin Johnson in his prime was pretty dominant and 88 seems low, but they are either using the past his prime version when he shot the 3 well due to the shorter distance, or the prime version and almost never attempted a 3. Your 3 point shooting rating will make a big impact on your overall as a point guard.
    Some of these guys would transition just fine in todays game with todays ruleset. While some top stars today might not be as impressive in say, the 90's with that ruleset (still stars of course, but you'd see different results).
    Sure a guy like Bob Cousy is never going to be close to a 95 in any era after his own, but then he pioneered the point guard position and helped shape the very game of basketball.
    Don't worry guys, im going to spend a lot of time mastering the CAP system this year so we can add Barkley, Miller, Arenas, Sheed, Roy etc, to these rosters.

    I get it I just think everyone still seems high. Most could come down 2-5 overall but whatever. Love the addition

    Alright, I know I said OVRs aren't that serious for these all time teams..
    ... but Allan Houston is the same rating as Bernard King on the all time Knicks?
    That's just horrible man.. :lol:

    2. Does anybody know which of these players are completely new to 2k(not in MyTeam last year)?
    My Take aways.
    1. We can damn near just make the ’93 suns.
    2. My Legends season about to be lit
    3. The amount of teams we can make now ridiculous. We haven’t even got the full rosters of the classic teams yet which are sure to have some guys that weren’t good enough to make all time rosters but can help fill out season specific rosters and stuff.
    4. No Glenn Robinson, Rasheed Wallace, Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller… doesn’t even phase me at this point.
    5. This is officially THE classic players 2k. We can put 2k12 to bed.

    Yeah, who knows what their thinking is exactly with a lot of rating stuff. I still think giving Kareem at the very end of his career on the 87 Lakers squad a 94 overall was nuts. And even if I love a guy like Allan Houston, I don't understand the 89. He was one of the best pure shooters ever, but nothing special defensively, rebound, passing or athleticism wise. Maybe at his peak he was better than I remember defensively, but certainly not elite.

    Hes there. Right under Iverson
    I was wrong, playing a season with the all-time rosters (if possible) can actually be a lot of fun.
    The only thing that I'd like to do is de-activate any player that is already on another team. So each player only appears on one team (the one team he is most known for being part of). Hopefully there are enough players to still have 12 guys with no repeats.
    There is no consistency in their choices, but some seem to be because of their personal preference or lack of research. There's no reason for some players not to be on several teams while others are. Still, they made a solid effort and we can hopefully just put Mutombo from the 94 Nuggets or copy from the All-Time Hawks!
    Oh man...the classic teams aren't usually my thing but they got so many of my childhood players in there this time...once one of the roster guys tweaks these ratings to be more in line with reality, it'll be fun to make a MyLeague with these guys.

    This community will probably create rosters without duplicates and add in guys to fill their spots, more than likely within DAYS of the game's release. The roster editors here are awesome. I look forward to doing a fantasy draft with these rosters without dupes and add in guys like Barkley, Miller, Brandon Roy, etc.

    Some choices seem like the wanted to put a current player on teams and some may come down to licensing and then some are head scratches like you say lol
    You could just add him.
    Stockton and Sixers Wilt jump out to me as being underrated. But props to them for making progress with the classic players.
    Edit: Okay Stockton changed to 97. Cool cool cool.

    Dikembe is right there on the All Time Nuggets though...

    100%. CAP for the rest that they couldn't get the rights to. What's weird to me is some players that have already been in the games before not giving up their rights now, Brandon Roy, etc.

    Steve Kerr over Ben Gordon? No way Steve Kerr should be an all time player on any team. He wasn't that good to even be an 81. Also BJ Armstrong a 85? He is not an 85 even in his prime. Thank God it's editable. Also it's a slap in the face to put Supersonics greats in OKC. smh


    You do realize the Thunder ARE the Supersonics, right?
    Like they moved from Seattle and still have claim to their history. Or would your rather Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton just not be on a team?
    Also, Steve Kerr is one of the greatest 3pt shooters in the history of the NBA. So he probably has a right to be on there, especially since he won 3 titles with the Bulls. Not sure about BJ Armstrong over Kirk Hinrich though.

    You also have to think about them trying to add as many players as possible. Giving up a Mutombo spot may mean another slot for a newer player. Not that the big guy should be relegated to just one team, but the more players in the game the better :)

    Right and the good thing is we won't have to use CAP on whole teams and stuff now.
    I'm making a list of requested teams that have a good skeleton with the addition of these all time teams now.
    If I can do a fantasy draft MyLeague with these teams and current players in the draft pool, I'll be in heaven and this is a Day 1 buy for me when it wasn't going to be.

    I assumed Gerald Wallace would still be an in game free agent...is he retired?

    He hasn't officially retired from what I can tell, but he hasn't played an NBA game since 14-15. Might have fallen out of the NBPA.
    Plus a year ago he said he doesn't think he can mentally go out and play NBA basketball.

    Yea hopefully the Euro teams are still there for me to throw certain players too so that there's no duplicates.
    This is about 10 times better than I imagined it would be. At first glance, some of the obvious players who shouldn't be on the roster:
    Kyle Korver, Joe Johnson (Nets)
    Antoine Walker
    Raymond Felton
    Brendan Haywood, J.J. Barea
    Beverly and Horry (Rockets)
    Darius Miles, Bill Walton on the Clippers
    James Posey and Bonzi Wells (Grizz)
    Brandon Jennings
    Trenton Hassell and Zach LaVine
    Cousins (Pelicans)
    Porzingis and Amar'e (Knicks)
    James Harden (Sonics/Thunder)
    Aaron Gordon, Steve Francis (Magic)
    McKie, Embiid, Holiday (Sixers)
    Barbosa, Dragic, (Suns)
    Rider, ZBo, Batum, Matthews (Blazers)
    Rudy Gay (Kings)
    Horry, Del Negro, Aldridge (Spurs)
    Ross, Amir Johnson, (Raptors)
    Favors, Ostertag, (Jazz)
    Porter, Gortat, Bol, Hamilton, MAYBE even Hughes, Beal, Webber, Chapman (Wizards)
    Plenty of others who need rating changes, and maybe swapped for someone else. I'll probably edit the All-Time teams to 13 guys (who needs to extra guys that you can't play?) to weed out some of the players who don't belong. But the guys listed above, for the most part, shouldn't even have an argument for making the team. The Wizards might be the worst, but I'm sure most of the players who would make that team 2K couldn't land the rights to.
    Some guys in this thread, including me, have had some confusion. I looked at the game informer site and still had the window open when I opened this thread originally. Some ratings on there are off from the 2k facebook page Steve has linked. Like Kevin Johnson is a 90 on the 2k facebook link, and not an 88. Mutombo is on the Nuggets on the FB link. Stockton is a 97 and not 91.

    How no Gilbert Arenas..might be the best wizard ever

    I'm going to bet Gilbert Arenas didn't want to be included in the game, so 2k had no choice.
    At this point if a guy isn't in, it's 98% on that guy and not on 2k.

    Probably the biggest miss for me, besides the obvious Miller and Barkley. Hopefully we get some great CAPS this year to fill the void.

    Sheed cap in 2k17 was near perfect. Better than 90% of legends already in the game.
    God...I REALLY hope that they let PNO players be able to customize their "team" and take them online. I would love to be able to use a prime JO and Artest against the GSW.
    Although, if people were able to do that, the GSW would be a thing of the past respectively. Honestly, I think this would add variety to team selections.

    If I can do a fantasy draft MyLeague with these teams and current players in the draft pool, I'll be in heaven and this is a Day 1 buy for me when it wasn't going to be.

    You can choose 'All Teams' as a player pool, which will encompass: Current NBA Teams, Classic Teams, and All-Time Teams. Close enough?
    First I just wanna say that I'm glad we have these teams and extra players that are editable, but I can't help but laugh at some of this.
    My thoughts on the Hornets roster.
    Wallace & Mason aren't in the game, was really hoping to play with Crash.
    Missing Mashburn, Divac, Wesley. Hoping I can move them from other teams.
    Coleman, Felton, Gattison shouldn't be on the team.
    Ratings look high for every team and player, but not one player on the Hornets is rated a 90.
    Baron Davis had his best years in Charlotte and he has higher ratings in NO & GS.
    Dell Curry is an 85 lol all he can do is shoot.
    We work extremely diligently to get the rights of every player possible. Some former players just aren't interested in the medium, for their own personal reasons, which you have to respect.
    All that being said, playing head-to-head with a friend using these teams is really, really fun. It's become an office favorite.

    Can you keep out duplicate players in fantasy drafts?
    I really wish you guys would stop complaining about guys who aren't in game. 2K can't hold these guys hostage to get their likenesses in game. You wanna complain to somebody go harass these guys on Twitter until they cave or block you. As someone who has worked tirelessly on All Time Rosters, this is amazing work. I get that some guys faces could be better, but that's minor to me, but I feel the concern. But to fill up pages asking why whatshisface isn't in the lineup is just pointless and honestly insulting. These guys aren't in game because they don't want to be. 2K doesn't skimp on adding guys in. If a player is needed/desired & agrees to put their likeness in the game, then 2K does it. They scan guys who don't even average double digit minutes per game, I'm sure they aren't purposely skipping over literal legends. Take your complaints to the guys you want in the game. Maybe we can pressure these guys into being in it. Ronnie even tweeted that this is a better course of action.
    @ReggieMillerTNT, @No.chill.gil, @teambroy, etc. Add more guys accounts if you want them in.
    The more I think about it, that 96 rating for Steve Nash is actually perfect....Especially considering Tony Parker is a 94 and Chris Paul is also a 96.
    Good job, 2k !

    Thanks for commenting in here! We get emotional and pissy at times, but we respect how hard you guys work. Not sure if Camby not being on an All-Time team means anything, but please can you confirm if he's on the 99 Knicks and 08 Nuggets? He's just so important to those teams..

    That'll work!
    Additional follow-up question: Is it possible to manually trade All-Time players to current rosters to create sort of a hybrid roster? If so, that'll be a dream come true.
    Example: In previous 2k's you could trade Gary Payton (or whoever) to the Knicks in the roster edit screen, save the roster and then use that roster for a new MyLeague.
    It's time consuming, but I do that sometimes so I don't have 6 Jordan's and 5 LeBron's when doing a fantasy draft.

    Are we able to trade players from the all time teams to other teams? For example if I wanted take Kobe off the All Time team and add him to the current Lakers -- is that possible?
    As a more recent fan of the league, about 2005-present, I'm upset some of the recently retired guys didn't make their way into the game.
    Gerald Wallace, Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison, Andre Miller, Kevin Martin, Carlos Boozer, Emeka Okafor, Josh Smith, etc.
    As a roster maker (typically 2008-2012 range), those are huge omissions that I will have to create. I hope 2k just overlooked Marcus Camby and he's not a major piece missing from the 2008 Nuggets and 1999 Knicks

    Just to be clear, I asked about Reggie Lewis because he is in myteam 2k17 and I tought he would be included in the All time Celtics.
    Jay Williams is also on myteam and would be fun have him in the game
    kingelib
    Lol Joel Embiid in his 31 Games made the All Time 76ers Team

    That's what happens when you need another big and Moses Malone isn't able to be included.
    There's definitely some bias and odd choices with regards to ratings too. Abdul-Jabbar on the Lakers should not be in the high 90s for example, but I get that the Lakers get more love. Then there's some teams with not a single player with a 90 or higher. The Hornets with Zo, LJ, Glen Rice & Baron Davis and not a single one in the 90s?
    If you compare Rice with Houston - who are both an 89 - for example then you'd see that Houston only averaged over 20 twice and then not more than 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists. One time All-Star too. Then there's Glen Rice, 3 time All-Star averaged 23.5 with once 26 PPG and 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Very similar, but Rice is definitely the better player.
    Duplicate Player Picker for Fantasy Drafts
    I’m a huge fan of the classic teams we provide inside the game. One of my favorite uses is to include them as playable teams inside MyLEAGUE in an attempt to create an all-classic league. One issue that arises when doing this are the players that appear on more than one team, leading to duplication in the league. When doing a fantasy draft, you will encounter things like Ray Allen appearing twice (’07-’08 Celtics and ’12-’13 Heat) or Danny Ainge (’85-’86 Celtics and ’90-’91 Blazers) or five different Michael Jordans if you included all of the Bulls teams. To alleviate this in NBA 2K18, we have added the ability for you to choose if you want the duplicate players to appear in your league. You can even choose which version of the player you want to keep in the player pool. It always felt weird to me, and I’m pleased to say we have an elegant solution for it this year.

    For all you guys wondering, I am assuming this also applies with the new all time classic teams meaning we can do fantasy drafts without duplicate players for MYLEAGUE using current, historic and all time rosters meaning we may no longer have to assign duplicate players to euroleague teams. Hopefully simballer can confirm this for me haha
    ojandpizza
    This is about 10 times better than I imagined it would be. At first glance, some of the obvious players who shouldn't be on the roster:
    Kyle Korver, Joe Johnson (Nets)
    Antoine Walker
    Raymond Felton
    Brendan Haywood, J.J. Barea
    Beverly and Horry (Rockets)
    Darius Miles, Bill Walton on the Clippers
    James Posey and Bonzi Wells (Grizz)
    Brandon Jennings
    Trenton Hassell and Zach LaVine
    Cousins (Pelicans)
    Porzingis and Amar'e (Knicks)
    James Harden (Sonics/Thunder)
    Aaron Gordon, Steve Francis (Magic)
    McKie, Embiid, Holiday (Sixers)
    Barbosa, Dragic, (Suns)
    Rider, ZBo, Batum, Matthews (Blazers)
    Rudy Gay (Kings)
    Horry, Del Negro, Aldridge (Spurs)
    Ross, Amir Johnson, (Raptors)
    Favors, Ostertag, (Jazz)
    Porter, Gortat, Bol, Hamilton, MAYBE even Hughes, Beal, Webber, Chapman (Wizards)
    Plenty of others who need rating changes, and maybe swapped for someone else. I'll probably edit the All-Time teams to 13 guys (who needs to extra guys that you can't play?) to weed out some of the players who don't belong. But the guys listed above, for the most part, shouldn't even have an argument for making the team. The Wizards might be the worst, but I'm sure most of the players who would make that team 2K couldn't land the rights to.

    Harden should definitely be on the Sonics lol
    Beal and Webber should definitely be on the Wiz
    Amare on the Knicks is arguable.

    Thanks! Not sure how I missed that when they released that blog as I literally only play this game doing fantasy drafts in MyLeague with classic players included.
    I really hope it works for the All-Time teams as well, but if we can trade them between teams then this will still help immensely and still cut down on the time needed to create a roster.

    Odd choices are due to licensing rights and player availability most probably. They have to make the best out of what they have.
    Vin Baker doesn't even deserve to be on an All-Time Knuckleheads team, but they where able to get his rights (perhaps easy as pie), so why not use him? I don't think there is any bias in that way of choosing players.
    Agree that there are many noticeable players missing, but again, it's probably due to licensing.

    I think you can't just look at the numbers and decide things like that. Like, Houston was better at actually creating his own shots with the ball in his hands than Rice, but the numbers don't show that at all. I would argue Houston was more passive and less selfish in terms of wanting to score than Rice. Not to mention, Houston was on a very slow, plodding, defensive-minded Knicks team. A lot depends what team you're on, what the chemistry of that team is, how large your ego is and if you're willing to play a reduced role.
    We all have opinions, and in these cases no one can really clearly win. I just don't want you falling into that trap of thinking stats tell all.

    As noted in the past, not all players will be in the game and that isn't the fault of 2K. Players have to be in the retired players association or have a deal with 2K. For a variety of reasons, some players simply don't like video games and don't want to be associated with it, period.

    And I'm bummed about Reggie Lewis not making the cut for the all time Celtics.

    He is in myteam, I really don't understand why he is out =(
    Aside from Reggie and Rasheed not being in I'm very satisfied. Really dig the Wizards roster. Rex Chapman, Manute Bol, and Muersan are all cool additions. Really wish Tayshaun had made the all-Pistons team but all in all some really cool rosters here. Can't wait to play with a bunch of these old players.

    Maybe Kirk is in the free agent pool. Edit him and add him that way bro.

    There's a good chance he's not in the game at all. He was in the free agent pool last year. Usually players are removed from the game when they are two years removed from being on a roster

    Harden should definitely be on the Sonics lol
    Beal and Webber should definitely be on the Wiz
    Amare on the Knicks is arguable.

    A 6th man who topped out at 16 points a game and never made an All Star team? Idk, I don't think Harden should make it. The OKC/Seattle squad has a long history. What qualifies Harden?
    I'd find Rashard Lewis, Lenny Wilkens, Gus Williams, Fred Brown, all would be better choices.
    Webber is a tough one. He didn't spend a ton of time there and all of his prime years were with Sacramento. For example, his numbers with the franchise don't even crack 20/10 and he made just one all star game. Jamison arguably even has a better tenure than Webber in terms of what they accomplished with Washington. If you look who's missing Walt Bellamy (maybe the most talented big they ever had), and Gus Johnson either one could take his spot. Johnson is probably a top 5 player in their franchises history.
    As for Beal, he's yet to even play a full season. Yet to make an all star team. If he continues his play from last season he will definitely deserve to be on this squad, but as of right now he's got 1 year that would qualify him. I think it's early.
    Noticeable missing players, Arenas, Jeff Malone, Caron Butler, Bob Dandridge, Phil Chenier, even the grandpa version of Michael Jordan would be better choices.

    I wonder how this will work down the road, when more legends are added or more current players are deserving of a spot. Im sure legends won't be very happy with getting bumped from the team. I also wonder how mobile these overalls will be, as Sixers Chamberlain and Bucks Ray Allen really appear to need an OVR bump while the Greg Ostertags of the world need a OVR drop
    Have to say Im very disappointed as a life long Pacers fan, just how many missing players there is on that team.no Roger Brown or Mel Daniels, and of course Reggie. I know its not 2k's fault, but still disappointed.
    I just hope when they say fully editable they mean it, as they have been know to fib once in a while, to sell games. Because if thy are fully editable, then we should be able to add in the right all time players and erase those who shouldnt be on a all time team.

    This is my thoughts for a few teams. It's a great base to start with. But some players will need swapped, ratings changed, shots fixed, etc.. but at least with this roster most of the work is already there.

    In the blog it was said we can choose not to have duplicates does this also go for these all time teams ?
    Also can we edit the legend / classic players age again ? Last year we couldnt i hope this option is possible again because i make specialized rosters tbat require some age editing.

    Yeah, its a great base, if they let you fully edit it, meaning erase those who you fell dont deserve to be on all time team. I love George Hill, but he isnt a top all time Pacer, along with a few others they have on the Pacers. I was hoping Wayman Tisdale, along with Roger Brown, Mel Daniels, along with some others, would be available. If I can erase/ edit George Hill, Ron Artest, etc, and make those players different players then I will be thrilled, as I know its not 2k fault they cant some of these guys.
    I enjoy playing with all time classic teams since they started doing this, but in all honesty I actually would prefer that time be spent on actually making G-League playable. Oh well maybe next yr,lol.

    The only thing that I want to know is can we use these teams in PNO? All the other modes got "great" features while PNO players are stuck with the boring regular NBA 30 teams and can only use classic teams when you reach a certain rank. PNO is really the only thing that I play every year.

    I just hope 2k has a long extended contract with all of these individuals so we don't have to wonder how many NBA 2k games they'll be in.

    This... is the real question.
    Already know when MJ's contract is up, if he doesn't make it into the game... everyone will burn down 2k's building like they removed him on purpose.
    Nets VC at 89 is simply unacceptable. This guy would be a top 8 player in this league. Multi-skilled, could do it all, would still be the most athletic player today, would be top 3 strengthwise, could dunk on the strongest centers no problem, being long made him an effective defender and great finisher, great 3 range and I haven't even mentioned he had a post game! This guy is much better than Derozan.

    He is on the Wolves though..

    So... what?
    Marbury was the star on the Knicks roster in the early 2000s. He deserves a spot on the Knicks roster as well.
    Yes, the Duplicate Picker that I wrote about in my blog works for the All-Time teams as well (we designed it as such, I just couldn't mention it directly in my blog for obvious reasons).
    Yes, you can trade players from the All-Time teams to another team. I just traded All-Time Timmy back to the Spurs to undo his retirement.
    And yes, Camby is on the 07-08 Nuggets and 98-99 Knicks. That's all you're getting from me on the 'is this player on this team' for now. I can't have the marketing guys hating me TOO much! :)

    This is such a great idea. Props to 2k for giving us these classic players.
    I just hope that there is some sort of online ranked h2h mode for these teams.

    Amare first year there he was on fire. Then injuries took over.
    However, Amare first year was WAY better than any year Marbury had as Knick. He Amare made a all star team that year and Marbury didn't in any of his years there. They missed the playoffs every year Marbury was there and made the playoffs every year Stat was there except that last year -- granted he was hurts a lot over the course of that time.
    I'm not mad either way. Its not the Beijing Ducks All Time team or anything Geo :jordanok:

    Yes, the Duplicate Picker that I wrote about in my blog works for the All-Time teams as well (we designed it as such, I just couldn't mention it directly in my blog for obvious reasons).
    Yes, you can trade players from the All-Time teams to another team. I just traded All-Time Timmy back to the Spurs to undo his retirement.
    And yes, Camby is on the 07-08 Nuggets and 98-99 Knicks. That's all you're getting from me on the 'is this player on this team' for now. I can't have the marketing guys hating me TOO much! :)

    Thanks for the answers man.
    I just wish Reggie Lewis on the All-time Celtics, but just to know Camby is in and all this amazing players. It's more than I ever tought we will had!

    This is the best post I have ever seen on OS. Answered every question I had.
    I'm now 100% getting this game on release day, now I just have to decide if I'm getting it on XBox 1 or PS4 lol

    Amar'e was the first star player the Knicks had gotten since Marbury in the those early 2000 years. Didn't matter if he was an all-star or not.
    Regardless, to avoid a long argument in here. I'm not mad either.

    I'm confused why the Clippers doesn't have Sam Cassell, Cat Mobley, Chris Kaman, Lamar Odom, or Elton Brand on it

    Cassell.. By choice I guess. The others, lack of rights I'd imagine.
    GoDucks1224
    Bummed Camby isn't in. Means he won't be on that Nuggets team. Also Sheed of course. I expected no Barkley or Miller.

    Camby's been confirmed on both Nuggets and Knicks brother!
    So have they explained the ratings yet? I am pretty confused by these. They dont seem to be the ratings of the players from when they were on these teams. They dont seem to be current or last played ratings. When are they from, what are they?

    So... what?
    Marbury was the star on the Knicks roster in the early 2000s. He deserves a spot on the Knicks roster as well.

    Maybe Geo, but that Knicks/Marbury marriage had a brutal ending with both sides despising the other with all kinds of accusations that I won't get into here. It was so bad that maybe Marbury just didn't want to be on the Knicks:signball:.

    Funny seeing people on FB completely oblivious. Talking about 2k if you're gonna do it, do it right! Vince Carter should be on the Magic and so should Rashad! and How do you not put Barkley on the Suns and add Devin Booker over Paul Westphal lmao

    Like this one I just saw "Rick Barry is starting over Durant WTF lol"..
    IMO, Durant shouldn't even be on their team, he's only been there one season and missed 20 something games.
    Besides Barry once averaged 36 a game playing for the Warriors. That year they lost to the Wilt Chamberlain Sixers but Barry averaged 41 points a game against them.
    He also won a championship win the Warriors and took home finals MVP. He's 2nd in team points, 4th in assists, 7th in rebounds, 3rd in steals.

    Oh, no question that relationship will always be a topic of conversation with Marbury/Knicks.
    But you can't deny Marbury was the star of those early 2000 teams, even if they were trash. He put the Knicks on his back countless times and if you aren't a Knicks fan or weren't following them those years, you wouldn't know about it.
    But it is what it is. Glad we have the option of trading players to any team.

    Harden at PG, Tmac at SG, Clyde at SF, Akeem at PF, Yao at Center oooowwwwweeeeeeee

    No way Yao can move up and down the court with hide guys. I'll be starting the twin towers!

    This is exactly what we've been asking for for a couple of years now. I even started a thread last year about giving us players from myteam that we didn't have access to in other modes, as did a few others. I can't complain one bit. I don't see how anyone could.
    Wasn't it 2K16 that shipped out without a few players and then once you updated they were able to include some missing guys? If you don't see someone you were hoping for, there's still a chance.
    If not, we have some great CAP makers in the community. I'm not sure I've been quite this excited for a 2K in a while. So for all the ones complaining, shame. What more do you want? They obviously went above and beyond what we thought they'd do.
    So good job to the 2K team.
    This is awesome. Ive always wanted a mode like this. Thank you for this 2k. :appl:
    I just have one nitpick about the all-time Mavs. I assume you dont have the rights to Brad Davis, Tarpley, Donaldson, and/or Josh Howard and thats fine.....but where is Shawn Marion? You should have included Marion over Haywood.

    I just want to add - we LOVE celebrating the rich history of the NBA inside the NBA 2K series. Proud of the teams and people involved making these 17 NEW classic teams possible, on top of the pre-existing ones, as well as adding more players to MyTEAM and these sexy All-Time Teams.
    As a fan of basketball (and NBA 2K), excited to be able to continue our commitment to this endeavor.

    Thanks, 2K!!!

    Tbh he should not have been on their. I would have taken Eric Dampier dumb *** over Haywood.
    I'm glad to hear Camby will be in the game, but surprised he didn't make an all-time team. Hope this means that Boozer could still be in the game. Reggie Lewis might just be a MyTeam exclusive again. Doesn't really affect me because I don't do 90s rosters, but I know others are upset
    All of Bucks twitter is just throwing hate at 2k at not having Marques Johnson or Big Dog
    Is that an intended side effect to the All Time Teams? That the missing players are much much more noticeable and fans will be much louder in requesting legends to be the game?

    I'm glad to have Brendan Haywood in the game. Just wish Jamison was in too so I can reunite my favorite UNC squad.

    It's a shame we don't have Jamison. He's not as in demand by "casual" fans, but he's a noticeable omission

    I don't think Big Dog is a huge omission, but Johnson missing is a pretty big deal IMO. He would be up there with Moncrief and Allen in terms of the better players in franchise history. Should be their starting SF. Dude used to go tit for tat with Dr. J back when they dueled.
    But at the end of the day 2k can't get everyone. And complaining doesn't help because I'm sure they've tried to get anyone worth complaining about.

    I think it's great. Keep pouring it on so 2k can get a deal done later on. That's what got Nash back in 2k17 after all right?

    It shouldn't be directed at 2k lol I'm sure they tried to get guys.

    I agree... at least with the big name guys. If any HOFer or former all star is not in the game, it's usually on the player for not giving up the rights. When role players are missing, they are either asking for too much, or 2k doesn't find them worth the effort. So many people on twitter are yelling at them about Charles and Reggie as if they are intentionally leaving them out

    1. I wonder how fast the mobility will be on these likenesses. If a legend signs up in the next week/months, will they be snuck back in like Dream Team Pippen/Steve Nash or will everything be pushed back to the next year?
    2. Will these teams always be capped at 15? Its going to be a little awkward bumping some legends off All-Time teams

    I say bump em off. Almost every team has at least 1-2 guys that there are better options for.

    Well for a while it'll just be bumping guys off that didn't need to be on anyway and made it out of convenience. So I don't see that being a problem.
    however you are right. If Rasheed agreed today? Or Gilbert Arenas? stuff like that.
    Dick Van Arsdale missing from the all-time Suns roster is a crime. He's the "original Sun" for god's sake. Every player from the Suns' Ring of Honor should be there. Alvan Adams and Walter Davis are also noticably absent. Players who shouldn't be there are Ceballos, Dragic, and Barbosa.

    Really people need to stop doing this.
    Unless a guy you think should be on the all time team is somewhere else in the game and not on the All Time team then we should assume there is a reason 2k couldn't get the person. Period.
    If its a "crime" then it was most likely committed by said person, their estate, etc...
