Michael Jordan to Appear on NBA 2K11 Cover

by Ricky O'Donnell on May 27, 2010 at 2:07PM


Remember those videos I posted here in December of an NBA 2K9'd version of Michael Jordan acting out his greatest moments, all created by some random dude?  Yeah, they were pretty awesome.

Well, since it worked so adeptly as a viral meme, NBA 2K11 is running with the idea: they're putting MJ on the cover and in the game as a playable character.

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.

Makes me wonder if Internet memes becoming video games will be a new trend. Would you buy a Keyboard Cat video game? What about a game based on Rick Roll'ing? If someone created a video game where you go around icing bros, I'd probably buy 10.

But wait, there's more from the MJ-2K11 story.

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.

But if this means we finally get a virtual Craig Ehlo to shoot over as we relive Jordan's famous jumper that doomed the Cavs, or maybe even a cyber Larry Bird describing MJ's game as "God disguised as Michael Jordan" after Jordan dropped 63 against the Celtics, then I'm all for it.

OK, maybe this will be better than an icing bros-based video game. Maybe.

Are you still going to have to break the backboard with Horace Grant to be able to unlock MJ?

I thought you had to goaltend with Horace Grant 23 times?

I'll get it only if they use this pic of him for the cover, http://deadspin.com/5540522/michael-jordan-likes-a-little-more-lebensraum-in-his-hanes, rocking the Hitler stache.
