Jason Argent, the 2K Sports vice president of marketing, said that bringing in hip-hop superstar and entrepreneur Jay-Z to be the game's executive producer both drove the necessity for bringing the Dream Team to the game, and the discussions with Barkley to license his appearance in it.
He will not, however, appear on any other team in the game. When asked if that was because Barkley only agreed to an appearance for USA Basketball, or if the game was not returning or adding to its "NBA's Greatest" suite of classic games, Argent demurred. "We're going to talk a bit more about that as we start making more announcements," Argent said, "but Charles will just appear on that 1992 team."
2K Sports and Scottie Pippen, who appeared on several classic Chicago Bulls teams the past two years, could not come to an agreement on the use of his likeness in NBA 2K13.
"I think it's gonna be great," said Jordan, who expressed confidence that the Dream Team's players will be individually rated higher than their 2012 counterparts. "I knew that was going to be a debate, it is a debate, we'll never know. Granted, I think those guys are much more athletic than we were at that particular time, but I'd like to think we were much smarter. Honestly, I don't think we'd have as much problems with them as they would with us."
UPDATE (Aug 28): 2K and Scottie Pippen have agreed to a deal that will get him in the game along with the other 11 members of the '92 Dream Team after all.
