    This game mode seems a lot like NBA Ballers.

    Yea, been nice if Reggie and Charles were in it, but it's still an impressive list.

    But, LEGENDS and SHAWN BRADLEY does not compute. :confused:

    Actually that game mode was already in previous NBA2k games for FREE. I was wondering why they took out all those modes. They're going to add a cell shaded background and charge us $9.99.

    Where are Rudy T, Elvn Hayes and Ralph Sampson ? Also do you guys think it is harder for 2k to get rights to dead players (Brian Williams aka Bison Dele did not make it on 97 Bulls or 94 Nuggets and no Manute Bol which every sane person would choose over Mureshan or Bradley) ?

    Yao is in, Sleepy Floyd, KJ - pretty good list.

    It's not simply a matter of 2K picking whoever they want. 2K Sports has to get permission from the Legends if they want to be part of the game because they aren't part of the NBA anymore. Maybe Barkley and Miller declined to do it for their own reasons.

    I've always wondered why they don't have the early 90's Sun's jerseys. Those were nice. I can understand not having Barkley and Miller because they want too much money probably.

    Nice that they added new legends, Ofcourse I'm not going to buy it. Why would I pay money for adding some players which I will not use anyway.

    Does anybody know why you cannot make a team consisting of legends? You can create a team, but only with current players. or am I missing something.
