He talked about it more in a recent interview.

What you're asking has no cost/benefit.

I don't think people understand how EXPENSIVE filling out Classic teams would be. There's a reason they only did it on the initial few teams 8-9 years ago.

Would you want DJ Mbenga if you had to pay an extra $10 for the game? Maybe you would, but the vast majority of people would not.

2K will never agree to this lol. There's very little financial incentive to pay these guys to be in the game for classic teams. I'd like to see some statistics on how many classic teams are even used, because something tells me it's not nearly as high as this forum makes it out to be, and the classic players they are getting they probably aren't paying that much for, hence they have no problems putting them in the game as a nostalgia incentive, but to go out of their way to pay these guys just so they can be on some exibition modes? Forget it.

I probably don't undersand, which is exactly why I said I'd like to know the finer details.

I don't really care about Dj Mbenga, specifically but I understand people who would rather have the role players. I'd rather have 20 completely filled classic teams than to have 67 partially filled classic teams. I'm just not going to use a classic team with 5 or 6 classic players, ever. I think there could definitely be better allocation of funds towards classic players on 2k's behalf.

Why are people forgetting 2k is already probably paying a lot for nba license. Also for superstars who recently retired like Wade, Dirk and even Bosh came back. Barkley is so old news for nba 2k already. And if 2k really gives in to his demand more old nba stars will ask for the same treatment which will even put less classic players for future nba 2k games.

I dont know about you but i would be dancing for joy if Barkley and 2k ever come to an agreement. Who wouldnt want to throw down a monster jam with a philly or phoenix Barkley? Play with the 1993 phoenix suns? Or have legendary battles with Karl Malone, Larry Johnson, and Rodman in the paint?

Adding Barkley after so many years would definitely be an eye-catcher and this year would've been perfect to do it since they have nothing else going for the game. Why don't they just do it? It's a noble cause and 1 million is not that much when they earn tons more than that.

PER YEAR. Can't stress this enough, it's the most important detail.
