As an aside, speaking of your Suns comment, I kind of feel like 2K may have missed an opportunity with their inclusion of the 2003 Suns. I'm guessing their motivation was finding a team for Stephon Marbury that didn't require additional resources but had they just gone back a few more years, to 2000, they would have had a Suns team that:

1. Took out the defending champions in the playoffs (Tim Duncan was injured, but still...)

2. Had at least 10 players already included in 2K (Kidd, Penny, Googs, Marion, Longley, Cliff Robinson, KJ, Chapman, Rogers, Blount).

3. Used the same jersey design and court art as the 1993 Suns, which would have opened up the option for folks to create their own Barkley-era Suns in a more realistic fashion.

Again, probably easier to just copy the court art they already had (2005 Suns copied over to 2003) but just thought it would have been cool.

Honestly, just giving us full access to the MyTeam/Franchise team creator offline would be huge.

Re: New Classic Teams in NBA 2K21?

The teams they added this year are just a joke. It's like no effort was made for the classic teams section of the game. I'm not a Lakers fan, but to not add the Kobe-Pau team this year of all years is a disgrace. Supposedly the reason is that they couldn't reach Bynum, but that makes no sense. They have the Pistons without Sheed and Prince ... but that Lakers team would still have Kobe, Pau, Odom and possibly Artest.

I won't be buying this year since they put no effort into the classic teams.

Agreed, but sadly the legends aspect isn't what sells copies for 2K. Most folk just wanna load up the game and go play in the virtual modes or online with the current Lakers or Clippers etc etc

I've also opted to not buy this years game unless there's an announcement of additional teams from past eras on next gen. (Which I HIGHLY doubt) The legit classic teams (For me that falls under the 80's/90's/ early 2000's) and reliving old school hoops is the only reason I buy 2k. Not much point making the jump to 2K21 if there's no new tack ons.

I'm content with 2k20.

They only have 5 players: Kobe, Gasol, Odom, Fisher, and Luke Walton.

The issue isn't that they were missing Bynum. It's that they weren't willing to pay role players like Shannon Brown or Sasha Vujacic, or end of bench guys like Adam Morrison and DJ Mbenga.

Prior to this season, Josh Powell (10th man) reached out to 2K about being in the game, and never heard back from them.
