Well you did answer my question and I appreciate it.
However, let me add one more wrinkle. I was thinking of more along 5 on 5, maybe a career mode or season mode.

It doesn't have all the ones you list, but NBA 2k11 does have several of them. And it's the best basketball game ever to boot.

I hear NBA Elite 2011 was good

that is awesome that you can play as Manute Bol.

You're telling me the Mavs or Nuggets can't get a single, older player to be represented? No Rolando Blackman or Dikembe Mutombo.
I think Denver Mutumbo was a huge omission.

You're telling me the Mavs or Nuggets can't get a single, older player to be represented? No Rolando Blackman or Dikembe Mutombo.Alex English should have represented the Nuggets.
Maybe they weren't able to license Mutombo. That's the problem with including players who are no longer active; they have to be licensed individually.

Alex English should have represented the Nuggets.
Yeah, English, Lever and Adams were awesome. Teams don't score like that anymore.
