Multiple sources has informed ESPN that the king himself Michael Jordan will grace the cover of NBA 2K11. 2K hasn’t really put former players on the cover, but who wouldn’t make an exception for Air Jordan? Jordan still making history by being the first non player, and being the first team owner to hold such a spot. He recently became majority holder of the Charlotte Bobcats.
This also means MJ will be in the game of course. Wow! I remember always making the fake created player Jordan to make up for his absence. I also recall older NBA games having a player with just a number on the jersey on the Chicago Bulls. To me, this is a huge deal.
There’s more. I’ve even heard whispers that 2K has been in negotiations with several players (both teammates and opponents) from the Jordan era to appear in “2K11” to help gamers and history buffs accurately recreate the heated competition between the classic Bulls and rivals like the Celtics, Knicks and Cavaliers. But since 2K needs to ink all former players to individual contracts, it’s still up in the air whom the company will be able to sign in time to appear in the game.
The game will be officially revealed at E3 in a few weeks. And you know I will be there to personally give you the details behind this piece. Stay tuned.
