Tell me about it. Even more annoying is when I played 2K20 Mobile (based on the 2K13 engine) and MJ had his own signature post fadeaway. Why TF would they take that away?! That’s his patented move that literally revolutionized basketball with all who copied it, and now he has a generic post fade. Granted the generic one he has doesn’t seem to be used by many if any other players (unless I’m totally mistaken which I may be) and does look like him I think. But adding a spin jumper for him is a good compromise as it’s basically the same exact move.

2K22 definitely added a lot more animations for legends and current players. Especially dribble moves. Compared to 2K21 Mike now has: Spin jumper, and two new dribble moves that are his own.

To note, in typical sloppy 2K fashion MJ does not come with the new spin jumper standard. You have to edit him to get it. Also for some dumb reason his patented triple threat move (where he palms and shows you the ball) isn’t set as standard either. You have to edit it in his signatures.

But overall I think his likeness is solid now in the game.

Does the game have to be updated to show his moves in the edit screen? I just purchased it but havenít done any updates because Iím not sure Iíll keep the game. I strictly play with retro teams and right now itís not looking too good. Still not able to give him the medium band or change shorts length. Iím on ps4 by the way

Wow PS4 still has that accessories bug?? Yeah next gen I think is a lot better for legends. But you should have the MJ animations Iíd think. Itíll need to be updated to see the spin jumper animation.

Also his patented triple threat needs to be changed in. Youíll see which one it is (#4 or #5 I think).

Itís crazy how many legend signatures there are that ARENíT applied to the players. Penny is another one that just had his sweet spin jumper added. Lots of guys donít have their own layup or dunk packages applied when those packages are in the game. Pippen doesnít have one of his own dribble signatures applied to him (itís one of the ones at the bottom). I spent insane amounts of time getting this all dialed in.

Yeah I canít believe they took his armband away. Thatís something thatís been in the game for ever. I know his spin jumper isnít in there so I may have to update. The length of the shorts is what really bothers me. I can do the arm band fix but in 2k20 you were able to edit the shorts. He looks terrible with the super long ones
