    Who is the super hidden guy? Not talking about Deng or Kukoc (?), but the guy behind Rose, you can see some legs poking out

    Also a guy behind rodman
    Looks nice! MJ's calf sleeve is fixed, so Dave and myself are happy. MJ's face looks good (just needs his elbow band instead, just like Pippen's). Must be Kukoc in the back right, and Paxon far back behind everyone.
    All time Knicks plz since there's like 3 classic teams dedicated to them.
    I'm very happy with MJ's face update.

    Yo... you don't think 2k would troll us, by putting the Great Scalabrine on the All-Time Bulls do you?
    Lol probably Kerr.

    I would guess by the looks of it is Orlando Woolridge # 0. If so then they'll have him back in the early Bulls and Lakers team. He past away so that's why he was probably left off last year.

    OK, the white guy in the far back must be Steve Kerr. Thought it was Paxon, but the "5" seems more to the right than in the middle of the jersey.

    Looks like he has a mini fro.. kinda wondering if that's a "10" for Bob Love.

    Oh, maybe you are right. Wooldridge was an amazing athlete and my favorite 80's Bulls player after MJ. The guy could dunk on anyone any time!

    I'll say B.J Armstrong since the legs are Black! Lol
    On the other side behind Horace Grant I'll say it's John Paxton since Steve Kerr had blonde hair.

    His face resembles O. Woolridge to me, and he has been on 2K past games. Also he wore number #0, played for 5 seasons with the bulls, this would be HIS all-time team.

    I like that everyone is rocking the shorter shorts. Looks like my "wish" came true regarding short length for these all time great teams. The following was my initials thoughts upon seeing the All-Time Lakers. I think Jordan finally looks like Jordan.

    My first thoughts: (even before seeing the pick): I hope by default that these "all-time rosters" will rock short shorts regardless of era. My eyes can adjust to modern day player with shorter shorts, but throwback players rocking longer shorts just doesn't look right.
    My second thought: If shorts must be of common length, how about having both options available in the selection screen. Everyone with short shorts OR everyone with modern day shorts.

    No one excited about Jerry Sloan? That's a great surprise!

    You are right. I just wish they gave him lighter skin color. He looks like Noah...

    Jerry Sloan is a deep cut. Definitely one of the top 12-15 Bulls ever though. Well deserved.

    That's what I'm saying. Very nice pull and hopefully a good sign for the rest of the All-Time teams, possibly meaning 2K may have gone a little bit beyond just grabbing players they already had on classic teams or MyTeam. It'd be cool if that were really Bob Love back there, too.

    This is an all-time team, not a classic team. But I keep confusing it myself. Every time I look at that Bulls screenshot, I keep asking myself where are Luc Longley, Steve Kerr and Ron Harper...

    Yeah I wish we could see the face better. I wouldn't really consider Woolridge a top 15 player in Bulls history, but he might be given he's been in the game before.
    I'm still guess Love for now.

    I wonder if there is any possibility that we don't get a Reggie's Pacer team or the 92 Suns but, somehow, both players end up on all time rosters. It would be weird having an All-Time Pacers team without Reggie. To me it would be like Celtics without Pierce, Lakers without Kobe, Orlando with no Penny, etc.
    On another note this screenshot has me excited to see more all-time teams and players. Cannot wait to see the other players that have received touchups and upgrades.

    Think since they got him signed on he'll be on the classic Jazz bench?

    The old "what have you done for me lately." It's amazing how quickly a player can go from beloved to underappreciated. This is a reason I love the classic and all-time teams. It's easy to forget how great players were in their prime once their skills, talent, and athleticism decline.

    These Bulls rocking the shorter shorts.

    I wonder what that means for being able to individually edit the size of shorts on a player per player basis. Or is it only tied to team uniform/era?
    The sneakerhead in me keeps wishing that they'll one day just equip MJ with a real colorway for authenticity, but it's nothing a quick edit can't fix lol. He finally looks like real Mike though and not the creepy pervert he's been for the last few years.

    These players are fully editable, aren't they? So you could just change the hair yourself if that's the case and I'm not just pulling a Roger Clemens and mis-remembering.

    I was just going off what LD2K told us when he told us the All-Time teams are fully editable in the Roster Creator (unlike the Dream Team roster from last year).
    Guess my mind thought something different than was actually going to happen. But ya, probably can't change hair I guess.

    I think the guy behind Rodman is Kirk Hinrich.

    Hinrich wore 12 with the Bulls. That guy seems to be wearing a #5. So John Paxson or Steve Kerr? That'd be hard to justify over Hinrich though.
    This pic gives me hope that each all-time can choose between short shorts and long shorts. If that's the case, hopefully Pacers and Suns get 90s uniforms to choose, then we can edit roster make a couple of CAPS and we'll be in business boys.

    2 guys in the back bob love and kerr definitely sure could also be paxson but kerr makes more sense
    if you look at the jerseys you can see a 5 so could paxson(5) or kerr(25). and the other guys you can figure out its a 0.
    Paxon is one of the great clutch shooters ever. He hit a championship-winning shot. Don't care if Hinrich was a bettter overall player, Paxon needs to be on the all time Bulls team.

    Doesn't really make sense that we can change players heights but not their hair styles.
    Seems to make sense to me. Altering a player's hairstyle seems complicated, accounting for the individual hairlines and whatnot for everyone out there. Maybe a cool idea looking forward would be to create multiple hair pre-sets for a few of the guys who switched things up on a regular basis (Ben Wallace's afro vs. cornrows). I know old 2K's used to randomize his hair. It'd be cool if that type of thing returned with some more control.
    Either way, it all seems a little more complicated than adjusting someone's scale.

    its either paxson or kerr but my 2 cent tells me its kerr he hit some winning shots too for the bulls + he has 5 championships + 2 as a coach..

    Paxon should still be right there for me and anyone else to use on those 86-93 Bulls teams when I need him. Do not need him on the All time squad. Just my 2 cents.

    Steve Kerr also hit a championship winner and is widely regarded as one of the best 3pt shooters in the history of the game.
    Could be either of them, I'm leaning towards Kerr, but I'd rather have Hinrich.

    I want a guy like Jay Williams to be at least on the free agent pool, I know he is not even close to be all timer Bulls, but he is in MyTeam and it would be really fun to have him and prime D-Rose together in MyLeague

    Actually, I think he looks more like the "older" 90's MJ, after the return from retirement. Plus he's wearing what looks like the AJ 11's. I personally think that he should be the 1990-91 MJ - Still able to fly, yet a winner with great mid-range and fadeaway.
    I always thought that the 1991-92 season was the season where he changed from a high-flyer to a more of a grounded unstoppable shooter/post-up guy.

    I thought he looked like the older version too - I have a feeling it'll be 96 Jordan.
    I'd have personally put in '92 Mike.
    The new Jordan player model looks great. As does what appears to be the 2011 MVP Rose (right short fade and facial hair) Rodman looks to be the 2k17 player model, which was already fantastic. The new Jordan player model and the MVP Rose give me some hope for some attention to detail and accuracy to be applied to 07 LeBron, 07 Melo, and hopefully is indicative of the player models receiving the proper attention in terms of accuracy accross the board.

    If they got Deng they gotta have Ben. He's still signed to a D-League affiliate I believe so they probably have rights to him.
    Now that we are no longer busy being upset over how bad MJ looks, the focus is shifted to whether MJ is the best or not? Gaming-wise, it's a good sign.

    If its by ratings alone id say paxon has no chance. Past 2k games I don't remember him being over a 71 in ratings. And usually was about a 69. I've seen Steve Kerr and even Luc Longley as high as a 74 bit both him and Kerr were also was a 69 on most of the 2k games for all those old bulls teams.
    But I thought Kerr was overall a better player than paxon. Ron Harper gets my vote if you go by ratings.

    Artis Gilmore is a great choice, what you think dominant center for the bulls

    Yes he is. As someone has stated already, the Bulls didn't have many great centers. Gilmore is definitely a legitimate choice, just as much as Noah.

    -Mikes face and calf sleeve finally

    I think it looks way better than long shorts for everyone. If it's the choice for one or the other, everyone with shorter short looks best. Imagine if the Lakers all time pic was all short shorts.
    Dude said that to rile y'all up and you fell for it. He could have just said MJ, he obviously went out of his way to say "2nd best" lol. Back on topic...

    Today's players owe it to MJ for stretching down his shorts in the 80's, always wanting longer shorts.

    Yes they absolutely need to fix 2007 Cavaliers LeBron player model. Huge downgrade from 2k16s. With how eerily accurate LeBron's current Cavaliers player model is in 2k18, they need to heavily improve the 2007 Cavaliers and 2013 Heat player models to catch up so they are at least comparable in quality.

    Kirk Hinrich is an overall better player than Kerr or Paxon. This dude used to be able to guard PG-SFs. I hope he's in.

    He's all time leader or like within top 3 of in several franchise stats. I'll take Kirk.

    Yep. I agree. Kirk's overall rating in his prime was also higher than paxon or Kerr. I just played 2k11 and paxon was a 69 on that 89 bulls team. A 69 is not an all time guy. Paxon was not a good defender either.

    Paxon is only remembered for hitting the big shot in the Finals. Otherwise he was just another average point guard.
    I think he was a clutch shooter. It's a bit harsh to just him call average, but I would definitely call him pretty good guy to have.

    As far as I can remember, he played a major role during the 1991 Finals as well.
    Paxson was nice but he's not:
    #1 in 3pt FGs made
    #1 in 3pt FGs Attempted
    #3 in Steals(Behind MJ and Scottie)
    #3 in Games played(Being MJ and Scottie)
    #4 in Minutes played
    #3 in Assists(Behind MJ and Scottie)
    In Bulls Franchise history.
    He also made a defensive team and rookie team as a bull.
    I think its pretty clear it's him over Steve Kerr and John Paxson. Longevity and statistical ranks to me beats success if you weren't the star player on your team. To me anyway.

    Current teams...? What are they? :duck::p

    I'm so happy I can play with the classic Bulls now. Hoping MJ has some sig stuff in there aswell.
    Can't wait to run me some triangle with this amazing looking MJ out there.
    The game has been changed.

    For that matter, long haired Manu on the 04-05 Spurs? Hope this means all players will be retrofitted for their respected teams. There are some existing classic players that could use a makeover, maybe this Jordan indicates we are in store for more touch ups.

    Paxon is only remembered for hitting the big shot in the Finals. Otherwise he was just another average point guard.

    I don't know. Paxson hit some big shots in the close out game during the 91 finals also albeit he was wide open but it was on the biggest stage.

    I think he was better than bald MJ. But I personally wouldn't say "spot on".
    Opinion of course.
    Positive sign with that DRose scan. I thought they would just put current scans on "X" team with appropriate rating in regards to All-time teams. It appears that they did some edits to these models to reflect what they looked like in their prime. Very excited about this..
    Thank God Jordan looks like jordan now does he plays like him is the BIG question. Also it's good to see Horace not wearing his magic goggles in this pic. I hope they don't have him wearing any in the 89 bulls.

    Yep - if you look close at the Miami one, you'll see Wade doesn't have the full beard either. Only the current Wade for the Bulls has the beard.
    Noah, Sloan, Rose, Gilmore, Jordan, Rodman, Pippen, Grant, Butler, Deng, Kukoc - That's 11 players, 4 to be discovered.
    My guesses - Steve Kerr (behind Rodman), Bob Love (between Rose and Gilmore), Kirk Hinrich (foot between Pippen's legs) and Orlando Woolridge, Ben Gordon or Carlos Boozer(at the right side of Deng)

    I think he was a clutch shooter. It's a bit harsh to just him call average, but I would definitely call him pretty good guy to have.

    That 91 finals is the main reason why paxson was a clutch shooter.
    That's definitely Kerr behind Rodman. The placement of the '5' is over too far to be Paxson. Based on the color of the two legs on the mystery guys, one of them is likely Ben Gordon. They're both black in skin color, though the one behind Pippen could be wearing a sleeve. It's hard to really make out that one.

    So rodman is going to be on 2 all time teams maybe 3.

    I think Spurs fans would riot if Rodman was associated with them.

    Excellent comparison post.
    Man I just can't say enough about how happy I am with the 2K18 MJ. It's night and day. He looks great! Sorry for saying it over and over again, but a MASSIVE thread just got locked that was dedicated to this (it's a big deal :)).

    Again I am SO GLAD MJ IS FIXED , Its gonna be fun as hell recreating his Late 80s early 90s playoffs series CANT WAIT :59: lmao

    Thank you for starting that thread, our voices were heard.
    Hope we dont have to post too often here, but rather at the highlights thread. His signature gestures gotta be in as well. Wondering if we get random "eyes close" free throw shooting animations with MJ?
    Dave - looks like no matter what u will need to pick up 2K18, no excuse to skip!
    Thank you 2K.

    Face looks great! But is no one else a little worried about the necks? I just googled MJ and it looks a lot longer than real MJ. Hopefully it doesn't look odd in game.

    MJ never looked so good. :o::o::o:

    This is so true.
    We can actually say this is the best digital GOAT, best digital Michael Jeffrey Jordan of ALL TIME.
    **subject to opinion**
    If you are of this opinion, today was a significant day in video game basketball!

    So, how about them 2K generic shoes? Are these new?

    As of now it seems more than a handful of players will be equipped with them. Hopefully at launch that changes.
    Gotta admit they look a lot better now tho IMO.
    The uniforms of the Bulls classic teams still wreak of low-quality, and the stripes at the bottom of the shorts are still tiny, SMDH. And, yeah, looks to be an slight improvement of MJ's face...but damn, I think we can confirm that NECKS are the oddity in 2k18. I wasn't holding my breath on the classic teams, but seals the nail in the coffin for me as far as my purchase goes. First time since 2k10.
    I wonder the uniform whether have physical system. I mean the classic team uniform is different from Morden Association. we can found a few wrinkle on mj‘s uniform.
    It's good MJ looks like MJ again. I always miss that early 90's NBA with lots of midrange shots. I was just watching game 3 of the 1991 EC Finals. Not a pretty game, not extremely fun game, and yet I really enjoyed it. Seeing Isaiah winning a tip-off vs Perdue was the highlight of the game for me. I have never seen Isaiah jumping so high.
    Really loving the new art director. Can't wait to see all the shoes and accessories they scanned in. Nice to see legends getting love. It would be awesome if we could edit short length or edit alternate uniforms to short shorts. The fact that Bulls have em and all time Lakers don't, I see you 2k!

    My all time Bulls:
    PG: Norm Van Lier
    SG: Michael Jordan
    SF: Scottie Pippen
    PF: Dennis Rodman
    C: Artis Gilmore
    6th: Rose
    G: Reggie Theus
    F: Toni Kikoc
    F/C: Horace Grant
    G/F: Jimmy Butler
    C: Joakim Noah
    G: Jerry Sloan
    F: Bob Love
    13 man rotation. Last two spots I would take 2 of Ron Harper, Chet Walker, BJ Armstrong (Harper and Armstrong are better players than Kerr or Paxson)
    Before anyone asks, reason for starting Van Lier:
    I've actually ran this roster in the past, user vs CPU, CPU vs CPU, and simulating seasons. Starting Rose next to MJ is counter productive because a video game will never be perfect and Rose's strengths do not mesh well with MJ's and he takes too many shots away from MJ.
    Van Lier is a true point. One of the best defensive guards to ever play the game. He makes the MJ/Pip/Rodman defense better than any guard they ever actually played with. All his strengths fit with the starters without throwing off chemistry. He used to actually be in the 2k games, rated in the high 80's to low 90's I believe.
    Rose is the perfect 6th man. Bring him in for instant attack mode. Can run him at the back up point, or as the sub for MJ to give you a similar player to attack the rim. Considering MJ, to actually play like MJ, needs an all-time level usage, and Pippen brings the ball up just as often as the point guards, it makes for a better team fit to stagger them more than to try and start another ball dominant player. (Same reason I'll start Gary Payton over Russell Westbrook and Mark Price over Kyrie Irving).

    players' trap muscles need a boost, because without them everyone is a pencil neck.

    Let's just wait and see how they look in motion.
    This is NBA2k17 - large traps, sloped shoulders. As of right now, 2k18's player models simply look better overall.

    I'm always watching old school hoops. Absolutely love it. The era of mid range and bigs playing like bigs in the post. All that banging and scrapping down low. The 80's and 90's in the NBA were amazing to watch for me. Much prefer the grittier more fundamental style than today's run and gun, and 1 mix tape stuff.
    I remember Thomas going in for that jump ball - he REALLY wanted that!!
    So stoked to play as MJ this year. I only hope the gameplay is enough to stop me repeating last years performance and taking the game back within 7 days - hoping to finally retire 2k16 :p

    Bulls vs Knicks 1992 2nd round. Today none of the players would've made it through to game 7 (due to suspension) haha....
    Wish illegal defense was still a rule aswell personally.

    Him leaving Chicago was the worse thing for his career. 2005 6th man of the year , the only rookie to do so. He prob wouldn't make this cut but he's a top 25 bull of all time.
    18.5 ppg and 41% 3pt as a bull

    I'm with ya on that. Optimistically speaking I don't see how MJs likeness can be an issue moving forward from 2K18....
    This series is my all time fav series ever in basketball. I'm not saying its the best or greatest. Just my personal fav.
    I recently watch the entire series on youtube. I miss that style of NBA so much.

    I would put Jimmy Butler in for the defence. Have Scottie run the point.
    Funny thing is I've seen a lot of animations that could be in a MJ signature layup and dunks in the game. I wish I could go through all the animations of such and custom build a dunk/layup package for MJ using what they have.

    I understand Boozer but Gordon was a big part of the mid-late 2000 Bulls roster during the season and playoffs. The man deserves some respect and anyway I just want him in the game.

    So does this mean the does MJ look like MJ thread is finally no longer needed? Cause this MJ is legit

    Probably, but it also depends on how MJ plays. We may need a "Will MJ actually play like MJ this year?" thread in case it's not there. We'll see.
    dirtydizzle
    I would put Jimmy Butler in for the defence. Have Scottie run the point.

    That would be a really good alternative for if they were playing the Lakers with Magic, or Orlando with Penny. Could still run Van Lier against the small quick guards like himself, run Jimmy and let Pippen guard the bigger guards. Versatility. Still have Rose to kill it as the 6th man in either scenario.
