It has been confirmed that the greatest basketball player ever will be gracing the cover of 2K Sports–NBA 2K11. The game is slated to be released on October 5th and will be the return for his ‘Airness’ to the video game form since 2004. We all know that Jordan could sell your mother back to your father after borrowing her for a night. The man is a marketing machine from his Jordan brand making a gazillion dollars to his somewhat annoying Hanes commercials. Despite it all he sells and sells big! So how are current NBA players feeling that Jordan who now owns the Charlotte Bobcats being on the cover and not them? Who cares! No one in the league can carry Jordan’s high school jockstrap let alone his 47 year-old one.
The crazy thing is that Jordan hasn’t played in 7 years and yet the league is still dependent on him for a lot of things. Yes, there is Kobe, Bron Bron and Dwight Howard with his baby ear having self but none of them dudes are at the level of MJ. Michael said in a statement,
“It’s an honor to be featured on the cover of NBA 2K11. “I have no doubt that NBA 2K11 will be a big hit with gamers and basketball fans alike. I’m looking forward to getting back out on the court, virtually.”
2K Sports did not say how MJ will be used in the game but if you’re a Utah Jazz fan you better hope he doesn’t pop in the game to steal your hopes of winning a championship!
