This recently released NBA 2K12 trailer features footage of the NBA’s most iconic athletes including Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Magic Johnson, Julius Erving, Larry Bird, and, my personal favorite, Hakeem Olajuwon. Gamers can also take a look at footage of current stars including Dirk Nowitzki, Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin. And hot damn — check out Rondo’s drive around the 2:05 mark. Honestly, this shit’s so realistic that I’m starting to think the developers may have included lil’ pixilated versions of Melas and I in this game. TBJ Easter egg, anyone?

NBA 2K12 is available in stores Oct. 7.

  7. @Breyzh:

    You used to be able to do that in the old FIFA series – you play with Brasil ’70 and Pele and you get the game in BW, old school ball, etc :)

  8. Yeah the old school games will have the old video effect. I also heard you can play as the 01-02 Sacramento Kings which should be fuckin’ amazing, I loved that squad.
