Classic Teams

#1 Posted by g6065 (275 posts) -

Morning Everyone,
 
Just wondering if someone knew whether the Classic Teams within the Jordan Challenge are transferable into the association / season modes of the game?
 
Also, in order to make this thread discussion worthy, what teams are everyone looking forward to seeing the most?

I'm not 100% sure, but they should be, right? I know that classic teams were available in the previous games. As long as they already have the rights to the players, I'd think they'd make those players available in as many modes as possible. 
 
Oh and classic Blazers will own face. (Whatever year they have in there, it doesn't matter)   :P

Own face over the 86 Celtics? Nuh..uh.

Over anyone. Always.

@JJWeatherman: The only weapons Portland '91 has is Drexler, Porter, and Robinson. That's going to win against Boston's Bird, DJ, McHale, Parish and even Walton? I'll say it again, nuh uh.

If there's one thing that Leigh Alexander and I agree on, it's that Boston sucks.

Portland titles: 1 Boston titles: 17. Portland sucks. It's amazing that the NBA would take a team like Seattle and move them but not move the embarrassment of what was once a contending team. The fact that Portland won't make it to the playoffs and that most fans bandwagoned over to L.A makes them worse than the Knicks.

Wow, troll much? 
 
And just so you know, Portland nearly filled their arena yesterday for a team scrimmage game. Best fans in the league. You obviously don't know what you're talking about.

@RedAuerbach: While I'm a Lakers fan, I gotta defend JJWeatherman here. The Blazers are far from an embarrassment, man. They just keep getting better too. If they can stay healthy, they can be serious threat.
 
Anyway, as for the original post, I know the Seattle Supersonics are there. I saw their arena in one of the screenshots. Hopefully the Thunder can play with the classic Supersonic jerseys. I was disappointed with some of the jersey selections in the last game. Some teams got a lot of love in that regard (like the Cavs), while other teams were straight up robbed. 
 
Any of the teams that the Bulls played against during the Jordan challenge mode will be there. I think there's like 10 different challenges, so I expect that there will be at least 8 different teams. The Suns, Lakers, and Jazz should certainly be there.
 
Actually, checking out NBA 2K11 page, it seems this question has been answered.
 
1. Boston Celtics (1986)
2. Cleveland Cavaliers (1990)
3. Atlanta Hawks (1990)
4. Detroit Pistons (1990)
5. Los Angeles Lakers (1991)
6. Portland Trailblazers (1992)
7. New York Knicks (1995)
8. Seattle Supersonics (1996)
9.  Utah Jazz (1997)
10. Utah Jazz (1998)
 
Edit: Also, I now realize this isn't what the original post was asking for. Ha, oh well. I imagine these teams will only be used in the Jordan Challenge mode and maybe in exhibition matches. I'm just speculating, though.

@TheGreatGuero:
I haven't played an NBA game for ages, but from that list this game looks like NBA 1K990's. That's pretty much the best thing they could have done for this game. I'm totally checking it out. Can't wait to play as Kemp in his prime.
