  1. Bernard King! I saw also Glen Rice, Grant Hill, Adrian Dantley, Ice Gervin, Bob Cousy, Young Wilt, Wes Unseld! Im having a meltdown!!! Mj and Iverson are great! ahhhhhhhh cant wait love you 2k
    Mauer4MVP
    Was that Grant Hill?


    And Bernard King, Allan Houston, Bob Cousy, a new Allen Iverson, new Wilt Chamberlain, Jason Kidd, Adrian Dantley, Stephon Marbury, Chris Bosh, Glen Rice, and Wes Unseld,

    now that that's out of the way....I don't think I've ever seen Yao Ming jump that high...I was hoping that guys over 7'3 would be more grounded when going for a block.
    Time for some screencaps guys lots of goodies in this trailer...
    WOW nice trailer!
    + Looks of most players
    + Artest on the Pacers confirmed
    + Glen Rice on the Hornets confirmed
    + Lots of different jerseys, from modern to classic and even alternates like the Bulls striped ones
    + some signature moves possibly (Karl Malone drive lay-up)
    + Bosh has his dreads!
    + / - Dr. J has his fro, but doesn't look like himself
    - Olajuwon still looks horrible
    - Drexler is the same on the Blazers as on the Rockets
    - Some colours are off

    Another year of 7' guys dominating 2K lol.
    Lots of new faces. As an AI fan, his face doesn't look too much like his real life counterpart. Maybe I need to see him at different angles. I think 2K11 had the best AI.

    They need special animations just for these guys that are over 7'3....they use there length rather than jumping for the block. If I were that tall I would be afraid to jump because my knees would buckle....
    - Bosh has dreads
    - Young Wilt looks..... off
    - Teams can use any jersey in their history
    - Magic Shaq isn't as big as LA Shaq
    - Karl Malone has a new face, looks weird without muscle definition
    - Jordan looks great
    - Warmup shirts and jackets are in
    - New shot celebration animations
    Did anyone spot an old court? I think they will give us the current courts of each team, which makes sense although would've loved to see new floors with just logos in the middle depending on which era jersey you choose :) I know, too much to ask, but 2k is going really in depth on this one!!
    Grant Hill & Iverson look great.
    Damn, it looks like they finally gave some attention to legends and differentiating younger/older versions of the same player. Hoping that means good things for the young versions of VC, T-Mac, KG, etc. Overall this was great!
    I think whats throwing AI off is he's never had facial hair that thick...face is decent otherwise..
    Same Yao face unfortunately
    Grant Hill!
    New Malone!
    Dreads Bosh!
    It looks like there is a 'some hair' Kidd and a bald Kidd
    No fade Shaq unfortunately
    All time teams is the best thing to happen to classic team players because those old faces playing along side the current NBA scanned faces would've been too much of an eye soar and would've really exposed how bad they looked. Glad they were touched up for the better.
    A lot of these players look a lot better and it got me hyped for this mode. If I can provide some constructive criticism, the San Francisco Warriors version of Wilt was almost unrecognizable to me.
    I hate to be that guy that mentions headbands but he never wore a headband while on the Warriors, that came later with the 76ers and then the Lakers. And his mustache wasn't as thick.
    3 Wilts - Lakers, Warrios and Sixers
    Grant Hill for Pistons AND Magic
    Zo Mourning with hair on the Heat All-Time
    I think I saw Bob Pettit on the Hawks
    Spencer Haywood on the Thunder
    T-Mac and Penny wears #1 for the Magic
    - Jermaine O'Neil
    - Balding Clyde
    - new Mark Price?
    - 2 JKidds
    - New Penny
    - LeBron X is in
    - new finger tape on Magic Johnson
    - Chris Webber with and without a headband
    - Same T-Mac
    - Raptors Dino font too small?
    - Grant Hill on Orlando
    - clearly an old build
    Sorry but for those that think the guy in the back on the Pacers is Reggie Miller, highly unlikely. If you google Mark Jackson Pacers, he also wore a wrist band. Plus Artest and George are the starting 2/3 in that picture, so the guy in the back has to be a point guard.
    RyanJS08
    Do I see Reggie to his left? I spot a white wrist band

    I don't think so, it's probably Mark Jackson.
    Smits, O'Neal, George, Artest and Miller would be a strange lineup lol
    Crossover1
    That may be it.



    They made it even thicker for some reason this year too...
    I didn't think he was THAT bad last year, should look a bit better since they added eyelids back this year, lol

    Yep. This is confusing. They obviously put in some degree of effort to make him look different than Lakers Wilt, but somehow they missed some major details? I don't get it. His hair needs to be way shorter, his mustache and eyebrows need to be thinner, and lose the headband (which we might be able to edit out anyway).

    Out of all the signature dunks that Jordan can do they pick this one...

    Yeah, what's up with that?? Should have been a a classic one handed lean -
    Jordan hardly ever used to do reverse dunks. 'Cmon 2k!!
    Awesome trailer though - I spy the Bulls black/red pinstripe alts!!!
    Yeah...THAT Guy
    Someone in the way back of the Pacers tip-off clip looked like Reggie Miller.

    I doubt they'd keep in the cut if he was in game. That'd generate so much hype.

    So what's happening with the Sonics?*
    They mixed in with the thunder??*
    Anyway looks amazing and looking forward to these teams a lot!*

    They said there would be 30 all time teams, so no room for separate teams

    I know it's a legends trailer and this isn't a legend. But 2K was never gonna show us Brodie.
    Meh....

    That body type is terrible for Westbrook, TBH. Not enough muscle on his upper body and arms are defined at all.
    Wish they wouldn't have stuck their neck out with the claim of "unique body types for all players." Looks like they just changed his hair (again) but kept the same face scan from 2K14 - 2K17.
    Hopefully they give him a better type next season.
    Things I noticed from the trailer:
    1. Stephon Marbury is in....
    2. They didn't touch up or redo Penny Hardaway's render.
    3. Double rubber bands are fixed and have two unique colors.
    4. Shade of blue is incorrect on one of the retro Piston jerseys.
    5. Isiah Thomas' render was also not touched up it appears.
    6. Two - man canned animations (in the paint) might still be present. Yuck!
    7. Wes Unseld and Bernard King are both on all - time Wizards squad.
    8. Is that a generic player beside Joe Johnson or Lenny Wilkens on the Hawks?
    9. People still have over exaggerated dunks in their packages. When did Mike ever do that style of reverse double clutch dunk?
    I0. It might just be me, but Karl Malone looks improved from previous years.

    Guessing they struggled to secure the Larry Kenon and James Silas types, as we imagined they would (it's understandable). My only hope is that the Spurs Dennis Rodman has his Spurs-era hair, particularly if it's the Demolition Man version.

    Likely asking too much.
    Also, as relatively small-time as Antoine Carr was, he had stark enough phases in appearance that he kind of needs a few versions as well.

    I'm sure they're with the Thunder. Hopefully we can use both sets of uniforms. Double hopefully the skyline logo jerseys are finally in (not holding my breath)

    I wonder if they got him looking like that....I hope Dale Ellis made it in...
    They can never get westbrook right.why does his lips stick out like that g I've never seen him with a haircut like that.I'm hoping this a old build

    Yeah, you're probably right. I think the wristband is on the wrong wrist for that to be Reggie anyways.

    I wish they made Clyde entirely bald for the rockets

    First thing I noticed. I put him on 95 rockets in 2k17 but it was hard to play with him because balding Clyde was in Portland.

    Yeah, Miller wore his wristband on his left arm.

    Grant Hill does look pretty good I will say. His dribble move seemed signature aswell - unless it's a happy coincidence....

    Hope it's not just wishful thinking! :p
    Solid vid. It seems like this vid is a bit older, as Rose and Jordan look different in the images. Hakeem, Dr J, Orlando Shaq, Tmac to name a few, need updates. That Iverson looks almost identical to a PC mod from 2K17. Toronto Bosh was a very nice touch.
    The 24th Letter
    No way Miller is in the game and 2k isnt showing him in this trailer fellas, lol
    Also, Westbrook is doing the inbound exhale face animation...I'd wager his face isnt stuck in permanent duck mode..

    If it were Miller, please believe he would be front and center in this vid and in several Ronnie tweets.

    It'll be even easier if he still has that PS2 render
    2K Westbrook won't be right until he comes in for a scan (live got that on lock, unfortunately)... penny and other legends not getting touch-ups from their 2k17 versions will look off AF... i hope they get starbury right... from the screen grab there, it looks like a generic, bald CAP
    Man I'm praying they updated jersey creator and allow us to make shorter shorts because these retro jerseys all look pretty bad. I would literally re-do every retro jersey except maybe the 90's bulls, although their shorts are a bit off.
    Can't allow myself to use legends in baggy shorts ha. But I will say it looks like they updated shorts on Nike uniforms. They seem slightly higher, and they lift up when players move instead of staying same length.

    This may be the greatest 2K of all time simply because there are three T-Mac's that we get to play with!

    Do they all look like the same 35 year old version though? Judging by that vid, he was not updated.
    RyanJS08
    Do I see Reggie to his left? I spot a white wrist band

    I got excited too, but you got Paul George (13) on the right, Ron Artest (23) on the left, Rik Smit Center?, Jemaine O'neal middle left and someone for the point guard position. I'm thinking Mark Jackson because he wears wrist bands also?:y11:

    I don't play it either, I just made a list of the exclusive myteam players of 2k17 to compare to who we will get ;D

    Yeah there are so many legends that were exclusive to MyTeam last year. Looks like that will change this year with the inclusion of all-time teams

    I think whats throwing AI off is he's never had facial hair that thick...face is decent otherwise..

    I agree..
    Past AI models have had him with that sheen looking hair and facial hair. Honestly looks better in this version IMO.
    Gonna be nice to see one of my top 5 players looking better after being pretty bad thru the last years :bandito:

    I agree. The whole time watching the trailer I couldn't help but notice how off some of the player models are. A lot of players arms are too skinny. Westbrook definitely stuck out. Come on 2K at least get the Superstars right!
    OTMax
    They cannot be serious, Antoine Carr on the Kings? Aldridge for the Spurs??

    Antoine Carr actually scored 20.1 ppg during the 90-91 season with the Kings...his best season ever.

    Well I didn't see Roy , Arenas , Reggie Miller , or Sir Charles but this is a great roster.
    Was there a minimum rating of 80 on these teams ?
    I don't think anyone should expect to see Gilbert Arenas anytime soon :lol:
    I'm starting to despise Chuck and Reggie though like wtf, come on already. I don't understand the big issue with being in a videogame tbh.

    They just dont care. I tweeted Reggie and asked him on his Live IG
    Dude aint never coming.
    Y'all better invest in a PC.
    Oh wow....Muresan, Manute and Shawn Bradley are in. I would love to see each of these players body model.
    Knicks I would swap out Kristaps for Gerald Wilkins or Kenny "sky" Walker just for the hairstyle.

    OTTO on all-time Wizards? You might as well put old MJ on there if that were an option. Happy to see Bernard King in..Rasheed,Chuck, and Miller-Shame on all 3 of you!!:signball::signball::signball:
    damn man that Washington team let me down.
    No Arenas, Juwan Howard, Antawn Jamison or Caron Butler
    No Brandon Roy on portland. No Rasheed. Man 2k need to just pay these dudes. They bout to make even more money from VC points anyways. like Come on man!!
    ... It's a start though. Maybe 2k19.
    Tweet them instead of complaining on here. Send the brigade to their social media.

    Ow yeah, totally forgot about Jamison & Butler. Arenas was obvious. John Lucas on the Rockets is also not surprising given the drugs history..Juwan is also pretty disappointing, but THIS IS ALL ON THE PLAYERS! I cannot fault 2k for most of the misses.
    I do find it odd that guys like Kevin Martin, Brandon Roy, Marcus Camby, Michael Adams & Rudy Tomjanovich would ask too much money..

    The way Arenas has been acting lately I wouldn't be surprised if he asked 2k to pay him a dollar more than what MJ is getting for his likeness:y220d:
    I really don't get Barkley or Miller. The NBA is still paying these guys great money to be a part of the broadcast and the fans love to see them yet these dudes don't want to let their legacies carry on in the video game?

    Looking good. Lots of accessory edits to do, but I'm ok with it. Dr. J looks kind of generic, but I guess we can't ask for more.
    Overall, great addition.
    Barkley has at least acknowledged the NBA 2k fuss over him yet I can't seem to find anything from Reggie about it at all. It's like he just couldn't careless about his fans.
    Just FYI, that GameInformer list that was posted is not accurate, the player ratings they had and some players are wrong. Check Steve's thread about the roster reveals for the real ratings/teams
    Kidd in the trailer has me thinking maybe they don't have the bands on leg this year. Not a big deal because a knee sleeve works well but I was hoping they would have it.

    Didn't play 2K17, so I wouldn't know (I trust you that you are right). But still, he looks like the typical created player next to the other guys.
    I know, I know, can't complain, be happy. I am.

    I hope Westbrook agrees to get himself scanned asap. Might be the worst player model I've seen so far.

    No doubt! That's a new scan too...I know he did some work with Live in the past and I wonder if that has anything to do with it..
    I dont get it are yall playing the game or trying to date the players? His eyebrows are not bushy enough, his fingernails were never that long, when he smiles he shows way more teeth than that. Some of these comments make me wonder about a lot of yall

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but their legacies won't be affected if the choose not to be in video games. They have a right to do whatever they consider is relevant and best for their image/legacy, just like any other person on earth. It's not about money for them, it's their image and the brands, products or people they want their image to be associated with. Old-school greats don't really lose sleep on things like these (or what their fans want); unlike the current generation who whine and make rants 2K about their OVR or who want a certain teacher to be "thrown to jail" just because they didn't like their opinion.
    As a matter of fact, I think both Barkley and Miller stand for something (anti-videogames/technology obsessed people or whatever it is), and as weird as it may sound, I respect them for opting to not be part of video games.
    Michael Jordan pulled out from official NBA Merchandise while in his prime, because only himself and Nike where the owners of his image rights. He didn't appear in video games from this point on while he was an active NBA player, with the exception of his own video game in 1992, Bulls vs Blazers, Dream Team USA and NBA Showdown '93 which had him in from a pre 1992 deal with the players association and USA Basketball. Besides those 4, all Official NBA video games from 1992 to 1999 didn't have him. And even post retirement, he didn't make a constant appearance until 2010 (2K11-present).
    I honestly don't think that his legacy was either tarnished or diminished because of his constant absence from video games.
    Rockets need a bald drexler and a much thinner Hakeem. But man these teams are all stacked. I have faith in the CAP And Create a team community. Please let us edit Short length 2k!!!!
    Cannot wait to see Manut bol's player model. Some of these body models are head scratchers though. I see some random current players with big cut arms, then others with generic looking arms. They seem to be all over the place. Hopefully 2k is still fine tuning player models.

    And Bernard King, Allan Houston, Bob Cousy, a new Allen Iverson, new Wilt Chamberlain, Jason Kidd, Adrian Dantley, Stephon Marbury, Chris Bosh, Glen Rice, and Wes Unseld,

    And that's the correct pistons road jersey.

    Mike was in Lakers vs Celtics also. It was after the first three peat we didn't see him in any video games until NBA live 2002-03 and NBA street vol 2 when he resurface.

    Yes, and he was also in Live 2000, 2K2 and 2K3, but it wasn't until 2k11 where he had a consistent annual video game presence.
    I was specifically referring to the time (1992) that, while being at his absolute peak, he pulled out from all NBA official merchandise (including video games) up to 1999, despite playing professionally in the NBA.

    Or cut Rondo/Allen and have Reggie Lewis

    What's wrong with Allen? Besides the whole "traitor" thing he was great while he was in Boston. Wouldn't have had a ring without him and he was a go to guy when a big shot was needed.

    Yeah but Mike was in showdown 93 though. It was after 93 when he disappeared.

    Nothing wrong with him, but he is already at the Bucks and Thunder. He could easily give his place to Reggie Lewis

    Fair enough. I wonder if they lost out on Reggie Lewis for some reason. I believe he was in last year for My Team, seems like a tough cut for me. Maybe they were just too big man heavy. Hopefully there is a way to put Lewis on the team, assuming he is still in the game to some capacity
    Really wish I saw AI rockin' some Answer 4s or Question 1s rather than 2K Generics..
    Hopefully they have enough sigs at least so that I feel Im prime iso-Iverson.

    Oh wow....Muresan, Manute and Shawn Bradley are in. I would love to see each of these players body model.
    Knicks I would swap out Kristaps for Gerald Wilkins or Kenny "sky" Walker just for the hairstyle.

    I wish Gerald Wilkins was in too but I can now put Xavier McDaniel and Mark Jackson on a Knicks team.
    I've played with modern teams but I've also done several seasons with mostly classic teams. If a certain player isn't in the game, I can usually find someone similar who blends in. I think I subbed Solomon Hill for Byron Russell on the Jazz one year. My only rules for using modern players on classic teams are no superstar players and no tattoos. On 2k11 I used someone who was heavily tatted and it looked strange when Magic threw him a pass.
    I can work around Charles I guess since Phoenix was a really good team before he got there. Reggie I'll have to create.

    If I remember, Barkley wasn't in many games back in the 90's. I know he had his own game one year but I seem to remember him not being in NBA Live a few times.
