Those guys are all unlockable. Or you can buy an unlock code if you're impatient, iirc.

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.

06-22-11, 10:31 PM
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.

06-23-11, 08:39 AM
I hear NBA Elite 2011 was good


06-23-11, 07:52 PM
that is awesome that you can play as Manute Bol.

06-24-11, 06:35 PM
You're telling me the Mavs or Nuggets can't get a single, older player to be represented? No Rolando Blackman or Dikembe Mutombo.

06-24-11, 09:17 PM
I think Denver Mutumbo was a huge omission.

06-24-11, 11:53 PM
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 That's the problem with including players who are no longer active; they have to be licensed individually.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.
