I have always been curious why i see most of not every legend in the games like nba 2k and nba live, but no micheal jordan? Why has this been the case?

Either way, do u think they should bring him back in one of these games or no?

yes... that will ensure nba live's demise. oh and they need to bring back kareem. i used to have custom team with Wilt as center and Kareem as power forward and the team was unbeatable.

MJ has never been part of games. I had live 97 (& others) back in the day and he was never on the bulls, just a no picture guy. I guess he wasn't part of the union like Lavar Arrington used to be on Madden during like his first 3-4 years on the Redskins. He wasn't part of the players union.

he wont


The NBA players association controls the use of players likenesses in video games. If you want real players in your game, you have to sign a deal with the NBPA. Back in the 90's, Jordan opted out of the NBPA. He's no longer a member, so if you want him in your game, you have to sign a seperate deal with him. I don't know how much he wants, but it seems to be enough that he's featured in very few games. I don't think he's in any of those "Where amazing happens" commercials, either, and for the same reason... I remember seeing Bird and Magic, but not MJ.

MJ has his rights, if you want him you need to make a deal with him, and i think it's not worth it...

Just create him in a create a player modus...I actually made a pretty good likenesses of MJ, Reggie, Kareem and Barkley in the 2K9 game.

If i remember correctly michael jordan was with the wizards in nba live 2003 as well as in the 90's all stars line-up..he tends to turn the ball over a lot as a wizard though in that game..^_^

lol i remember he was in NBA Live 2000

i started following the NBA for real in 2002.
so he was a Wizard and i just got NBA Live 2000.
i made my own team. it was all MJ lol

i have a feeling Live will get him one year
and people will just buy a wack live game because it has MJ

I think it would be too expensive to get MJ...would be nice to have all the greats though.

It's his decision not theirs.

Exactly. These game companies can't just use Jordan's image or likeness if they feel like it. It will cost them a fortune to obtain licensing rights. That is why they aren't keeping Jordan in these games.

Probably not worth the money. He was on the Live games years ago as a legend, I don't remember when.

People should just be able to build him and share rosters online.

i read before when checking this out that he wants far to much money, or nba live wasn't willing to match his price

i remeber playing basketball games years ago either on ps1 or sega and the starting SG for the bulls was #99 and his last name was Player but he was 6'6" and his ratings were sick overall so im assuming thats how they got around it.

kinda like in most baseball games from the past 5-6 years where the starting left fielder for the Giants was reggie stocker a lefty who wiggled the bat and had awesome power numbers

Player 1 used to be Jordans name in the old video games.

2K reps have said that Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul Jabbar are unincluded in the series because they feel like they can't do justice to creating them. I read this a few years back so I don't have the link but, it's pretty stupid I know. They were both great players but in virtual reality (video games included) anything can be created these days.

They should make a HOF section. Better for basket ball. Better for remembering legends. Nice extra feature and Michael should be included of coarse. Pay the man, i think it will help the series in the long run. Put him on the front cover if he wishes.

MJ is a greedy SOB, just create him if you want him in the games. Search Michael Jordan player attributes for a certain game and people will tell you exactly how to make him, or anyone else that isn't included on the roster.

would be great if he was in their but its his decision, the only game i remeber him being in was nba live the one that had vince carter on the cover i think

There are only about a few thousand roster downloads that you can look at on 2K to get MJ into your game. Most are pretty accurate and they look just like him.

Hell, people have even created all players on every team from just about every season in the 90s on there.

The Last Game I seen Jordan in was NBA Street Vol. 2 (lol)(They had 3 Jordan's in the Game)

I doubt he gets into a game anytime soon....

Last game I saw him in was NBA Live 03 it had J-Kidd on the cover

It was crazy cause he could dunk from the free throw line in that game. I would play the 90 all stars against my friends and when Jordan was on a fast break I would dunk from the free throw line and show them the replay and they were like "WTF!!!!!"

lol good times, good times

I remember NBA Street Vol.2 had 3 Jordans
the Wizards Jordan, the bald Jordan, and the Jordan with Hair

it would be awesome to have him in a game again. however i dont think he will do it because he has rights and hes too expensive.

That is weird that Michael Jordan does not want to be part of a video game. I wonder the reason why he wants so much money or if he just plain does not want to do it.

if you wanna play with jordan, go buy the old space jam game, that was awesome
