Ohhhhh man.

Hell yeah, good on them. May need some tweaking (Players put in that we didn't have the rights to). But yeah, pumped they are doing this!

This will make it so I can spend more time on the Draft, Classic Teams, and single season(s) rosters.

Good lookin out!

So will the pelicans basically feature their current squad or will we see the return of primoz brezec and Gerald Wallace

Will the thunder basically be the Durant/Westbrook/harden team most people long for? They better not put Payton and Kemp in there

That's actually really good question. Is LeBron going to be included in both Cavs and Heat All Time Teams? What about Melo? Or maybe even Rodman?

They said for all 30 teams, meaning Kemp and Payton would be on the Thunder if they are going by history. They are part of that same ownership.

Along those same lines, the Bobcats were a new franchise, that became the Hornets. Technically, the Hornets now (Ownership same as Bobcats, the new franchise) would have Kemba Walker and other Bobcats and current Hornets. The Pelicans technically follow the ownership path of the original Charlotte Hornets, as it went Charlotte Hornets, New Orleans Hornets, New Orleans Pelicans. For example, you can't technically put Larry Johnson on the Same all time team as Kemba Walker, because say Larry Johnson Played through the 90's, 2000's, 2010's and stayed with the same franchise, he would be a Pelican right now, not a Hornet, he never would have been a teammate of Kemba.

So I don't know how they will do that.

I hate duplicates on these teams, because if you want to face off, you have Shaq vs Shaq? that's silly. It also hurts the MyLeague experience if you want to do a MyLeague with all time teams.

It would certainly help fill the teams out if you do duplicates. I mean, the Heat history is relatively short so you'd have to include LeBron but obviously he'd be on Cleveland too. But it is problematic if a great player has moved around quite a bit.

I wouldn't put shaq on the suns or Celtics and it certainly wouldn't be fair to put a shaq in his prime on those teams so I guess you'd have to limit it to if they were great while they were on that team. Not like nba playgrounds putting Chris webber on the warriors when he was at the end of his career

Wasn't there some kind of a remove duplicates feature announced? Might be only for fantasy draft though.

Wilt Chamberlain is another example. The lasting image of him is when he played for the Lakers and won a title in 1972, but he also won a title with the 76ers, and scored his 100 points as a member of the Warriors. His number has been retired by all three franchises, and he spent at least four seasons with each team.

Now as long as we can edit the ages of the players on these squads, and use them in MyLeague... I think I am all set. This will mean that Professor2k & Franchise Play's rosters will be obsolete...? Maybe guys like Brian Mazique can just get to play the game now lol. Im sure there will be a few missing legends here and there, but this is such good news.

http://en.hispanosnba.com/nba/history/t ... st-players

This site shows the top 10 guys in franchise history, and the top 5 players per decade for each team... So figure in the top 10, then pick 5 out of the other all decade teams... and there you go.


So, just as an example...

They should stick with mostly classic players... a team like the 76ers... none of the current guys are even close to being all time greats

So these guys for sure...

Wilt Chamberlain
Dolph Schayes
Hal Greer
Charles Barkley
Julius Erving
Billy Cunningham
Johnny Kerr
Allen Iverson
Maurice Cheeks
Moses Malone

These guys if the roster goes up to 15

Andre Iguodala
Hersey Hawkins
Andrew Toney
George McGinnis

One of these guys gets left out...?

Chet Walker
Earl Lloyd


Its all just speculation of course. I can't wait to see who fills out the rosters for real.

Last I've heard he wanted 2K to give money to retired players and they declined. So I wouldn't necessarily count on it.

I believe he said something along the lines of 1 million USD to retired players union yearly for his likeness.

I wasn't aware that they'd responded. If that's the case, I guess it doesn't bode well, but I suppose we'll find out soon enough.

They didn't, but I can imagine that Barkley is not going to stand down and 2K managers likely think that one person is not worth 1 million USD.

For me, this is how the Lakers should look like

Jerry West
Kobe Bryant
Magic Johnson
James Worthy
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

PS: Positions here are defined by defense, Magic would still be PG

That's really exciting, but at the same time I expect very little attention to detail. I expect last gen ported cyberfaces(I want young Wilt!!!) still and other ugly faces. Expect inaccurate body shapes, weak uniforms and arenas, etc. BUT, that's why we play on PC for the modding! If anything, the all-time teams plus 16 new classic teams just makes modding a lot easier.

According to a post by LD2K over on OS, the All-Time teams will be editable (unlike the Dream Team last year), and can be placed into MyLEAGUE. Good news there.

I think this pic pratically confirms duplicates, because I'm sure they would not put all the Centers on LA and left Orlando, Miami, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Golden State on the dust. Looks like I have a lot to edit on those teams

Not surprised that there are duplicates. I think that ultimately works in our favour though, since we'll be able to edit the All-Time teams.

That's actually really good question. Is LeBron going to be included in both Cavs and Heat All Time Teams? What about Melo? Or maybe even Rodman?


I hate duplicates on these teams, because if you want to face off, you have Shaq vs Shaq? that's silly. It also hurts the MyLeague experience if you want to do a MyLeague with all time teams.

shaq vs shaq is actually not silly at all and realistic to what all time teams and historic teams are all about.

you get to pick which shaq you want to play with.

for example.

If you take the orlando magic with Penny, Dscott, knda old Ho.Grant, Nick anderson...with a young shaq. to go up against my 99/00 Shaq on my lakers with a kid kobe, old man glen rice.

Your shaq is quicker off the ground, quicker on the move. My shaq is heavier and stronger. but a tad bit slower. sure my shaq has the higher rating since he understood the game the most at this point in his career but at the end of the day a young spry shaq could run around the lakers prime shaq.

so thats a nice difference between the two guys. if i changed my shaqs name to some other guy you wouldnt care. because each player feels different. well i'm saying if they make them accurately. each shaq will feel differently. and someone that is a dwade fan will run to that heat team that won it all. with a much older, much slower, slightly less effective shaq vs your young shaq. your young shaq would kill old man shaq.

but you would still have to deal with dwade. old man Walker, super old man gary, etc.

miami has old man gary. but young man gary in his prime on OKC would destroy miami gp.

You can have larry johnson from the knicks. give me grandmama Larry J from the hornets which technically would be the pelicans.

all i'm saying is. dont get caught up in the name on the jersey. think about the skill level that guy had at that time of his career. I promise you if they do it properly it wont be the same.

young mike was the most athletic MJ and would dunk all over anyone but would throw up bricks most of the game if he tried to shoot a lot of jumpers(he was still clutch with the jumpers.) prime mike couldnt miss mid range jumper. old man wizards mike was still money from mid range but was not really trying to attack the rim like that.

they need to allow us to place these rosters in my career. it extends the life of mycareer playing offline. I use to do it with other people legend rosters from older 2k's. then as usual 2k took the feature away.

the way you would do it then was to load up the roster first. THEN start your mycareer for the first time with a new guy. it would then have whatever roster you have loaded on there. I assume they didnt allow it because they didnt want people to boost their my players vs fake rosters that someone else makes. but now that they are making the historic rosters. they should include it like that again.

I hate duplicates on these teams, because if you want to face off, you have Shaq vs Shaq? that's silly. It also hurts the MyLeague experience if you want to do a MyLeague with all time teams.

shaq vs shaq is actually not silly at all and realistic to what all time teams and historic teams are all about.

you get to pick which shaq you want to play with.

for example.

If you take the orlando magic with Penny, Dscott, knda old Ho.Grant, Nick anderson...with a young shaq. to go up against my 99/00 Shaq on my lakers with a kid kobe, old man glen rice.

Your shaq is quicker off the ground, quicker on the move. My shaq is heavier and stronger. but a tad bit slower. sure my shaq has the higher rating since he understood the game the most at this point in his career but at the end of the day a young spry shaq could run around the lakers prime shaq.

so thats a nice difference between the two guys. if i changed my shaqs name to some other guy you wouldnt care. because each player feels different. well i'm saying if they make them accurately. each shaq will feel differently. and someone that is a dwade fan will run to that heat team that won it all. with a much older, much slower, slightly less effective shaq vs your young shaq. your young shaq would kill old man shaq.

but you would still have to deal with dwade. old man Walker, super old man gary, etc.

miami has old man gary. but young man gary in his prime on OKC would destroy miami gp.

You can have larry johnson from the knicks. give me grandmama Larry J from the hornets which technically would be the pelicans.

all i'm saying is. dont get caught up in the name on the jersey. think about the skill level that guy had at that time of his career. I promise you if they do it properly it wont be the same.

young mike was the most athletic MJ and would dunk all over anyone but would throw up bricks most of the game if he tried to shoot a lot of jumpers(he was still clutch with the jumpers.) prime mike couldnt miss mid range jumper. old man wizards mike was still money from mid range but was not really trying to attack the rim like that.


It's called a preference, it's my preference. I don't need to be told to "not get caught up with the name on the jersey". My preference is: The same human being not playing against another version of himself.

Unfortunately 2K are never going to be able to satisfy everyone in that regard. I feel if you're going to represent the best players in the history of each franchise, some duplicates are inevitable (and it makes for some interesting match-ups), so it's the right approach out of the box. I also understand not wanting to play with duplicates, though. Since we will be able to edit the teams, it's at least something we can alter to our liking, I guess.

kingpnp wrote:they need to allow us to place these rosters in my career. it extends the life of mycareer playing offline. I use to do it with other people legend rosters from older 2k's. then as usual 2k took the feature away.

the way you would do it then was to load up the roster first. THEN start your mycareer for the first time with a new guy. it would then have whatever roster you have loaded on there. I assume they didnt allow it because they didnt want people to boost their my players vs fake rosters that someone else makes. but now that they are making the historic rosters. they should include it like that again.


It's a by-product of the different approach to MyCAREER with the story and all. They have cutscenes with the Team 2K players and a certain narrative in mind, so customisation of MyCAREER is going to be minimal as a result.

I also have the same preference as Dee regarding duplicates. I even think It's easier to make the teams to actually fit. I don't like the idea of Kareem playing PF for example

I have mixed feelings about that, especially for teams like the Lakers that have had a few all-time great players at the same position. It's tough to bring one of them off the bench, it's tough to leave one of them off the team entirely because they deserve to be there and are closely linked to a successful era with the franchise, but it's awkward to see them out of position to accommodate that. At the end of the day, putting them on the squad and letting us customise the rosters is probably the best compromise.

Exactly. Despite not liking duplicates, I think 2k did the right thing doing it that way, because that's probably what the majority of the user base wants. It's also easier regarding licenses. And, to be honest, I'm quite addicted already at making my own All-time teams Lol. Making my own teams with all the new licenses they provided is one of the things I most look forward to on 2k18

Agreed. 2k did the right thing.

I'll just update them to not include duplicates.

As a Bullets/Wizards fan, I'm disappointed that the big 3 of Arenas, Jamison, and Butler aren't in their all-time team.

I've read that Butler is negotiating to be included, but nothing further to report as far as I'm aware.

That would be nice. Take Gortat out for him. If they can remove Porter for Arenas, Jamison, or even Phil Chenier that would be even better.

Hopefully they can come to an agreement with a couple of those guys. As we've seen before of course, certain players do have their reasons for not wanting to participate.

They still use the generic players to make sure there are at least 12 players on each team, although obviously this can backfire on some classic teams (looking at you '71 Hawks). The All-Time teams however, do not use any generic players; instead, they either use lower overall players from the older teams, or use some of the current benchwarmers if absolutely necessary
