With the covers (bearing Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird) being revealed a couple weeks ago. Now IGN is reporting that the game will feature a game mode called NBA’s Greatest. A way to relive 15 of the leagues most historic games and giving you the option to play as 15 legends. So far, the confirmed players are the three gracing the cover, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Julius Erving.
To add icing to the cake, the classic teams can be unlocked and played in game against contemporary lineups. Kobe vs. Kareem. Dr. J vs. KG. Jordan vs. LeBron.
“There’s the age old debate how players and teams from today would compare with teams of yesterday,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “We want to settle that debate.”
