While rumors pegged LeBron James, Derrick Rose and even Tyreke Evans as favorites to appear on the cover of "NBA 2K11," multiple sources have told ESPN that the company has gone in a completely different direction, signing basketball legend Michael Jordan as its new spokesman.

This will be the first time that a former player will appear on the front of the box for 2K, and with Jordan taking over majority ownership of the Charlotte Bobcats, it will also be the first time that a team owner will endorse the popular franchise.

But the real question is, what value -- beyond obvious name and iconic image recognition -- will Jordan bring to the game? In the era of Kobe and King James, are gamers still yearning to "Be Like Mike"?

Why would it matter who is on the cover? The 2K series should sell it self. They are just going for a different look for the cover.

If Boston wins, it should be Rondo/Pierce; if Orlando wins, it should be Dwight; if LA wins, it should be Pau (Kobe was on the cover last year) and if Phoenix wins, it should be Nash/Stat...

using Jordan in a video game with graphics and gameplay like NBA2k
could be epic

as long as he's on the effing 80's and 90's all-star teams. its so absurd to look at those rosters with him missing. i'd like some other non-licenced guys to make it into the game to but w/e.

How about Tim Donaghy on the cover of NBA 2K13... the team you play always wins.

I agree with this for the regular cover... But, I think they should put Jordan on a special cover that you have to reserve or something like that.

Jordan should be a playable character on 2k

I agree. I would hope since he's on the cover and all of that, he will be on the game to. im getting 2k11 anyways, but would be even happier with Jordan in the game.

ahaha buddy, am I the only one who thinks that Lebron or Wade going to Chicago will be terrible for Rose? They should go after Amare and JJ. Much smarter choice.

Good taste


Also if they put MJ on the cover does that make him a playable character?

Jordan on a cover transcends the video game forum.

I'm posting this in the golf forum just as soon as its live and running in the sabermetrics school and analysis.

They should spend the money on making a game that actually works. Too many problems with 2k10

Meh Live is weaksauce. I prefer the old college hoops 2K8 instead of Live now.

Maybe people are just worried that there will be a curse like the NBALive curse on the 2K games, you know, where nobody who has been on the cover of NBALive has won the title the season they were on the cover, so retired players are the only ones who don't have to worry about how it will impact their game ;-)

Though the guys on the cover of 2K have faired much better than the guys who have been on the cover of NBALive.
