NBA 2K11 (Xbox 360 & PS3): Boxart to feature Michael Jordan as Cover Star?

By Jamie Pert - May 27, 2010

When game developers choose a superstar to feature on the boxart of a sports-related video game they usually choose an in-form player who has had a successfully year in the particular sport, however it seems as if NBA 2K11 may be one exception.

Apparently NBA 2K11 will feature Michael Jordon as the cover star, this will apparently be the first time a retired player has featured on the cover of an NBA 2K video game.

Previous NBA 2K cover stars have included Allen Iverson, Ben Wallace, Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Paul, Kevin Garnett and Kobe Bryant, therefore I feel that Michael Jordon deserves to feature on the cover, do you?

There is also speculation pointing towards Jordon featuring in the game, I would imagine this would be a very popular addition to basketball fans out-there.

As we hear information which confirms/refutes these rumors we will keep you posted, for more details check out the links below.

    Wow, FInally his Airness is returning to a basketball game with out player creation this has not been done since NBA Street Vol.2 which featured 3 classic MJ characters. I wonder what stats they will use for his return to the NBA Gaming franchise? If it were me I'd use his 1992 stats he still had his great jumping ability, improved defense, his patnent fade away and automatic offense they best Jordan to date.

    Jordon? Who's that? I do remember a Michael Jordan, with an "a". If you want any credibility as a writer, at least spell the most famous athlete of all time correct. Definitely last article I will read from you. What's next from you, Tiger Wods, Brett Faver, Wayne Gretsky or how about the great, late Walter Payten. Do everyone a favor and change your profession.


    are legend bballers like Bird, Magic, Wilt, Oscar, etc available in any basketball games to unlock or something?
