The Remakes of NBA 2K to ESPN NBA 2K5

2K, everyone has been waiting for this for a long time. Since NBA 2K, I'd like these NBA 2K games to be re-released:

NBA 2K (original release in 1999 for the Dreamcast, set in the same season (the 1999-2000 season), but call the remake NBA 2K Refresh and release the game in 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One along with NBA 2K17)
NBA 2K1 (original release in 2000 for the Dreamcast, set in the same season (the 00-01 season), but call the remake NBA 2K1 Refresh and release the game in 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One along with NBA 2K17)
NBA 2K2 (original release in 2001 for the Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube and Xbox, set in the same season (the 01-02 season), but call the remake NBA 2K2 Refresh and release the game in 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One along with NBA 2K17)
NBA 2K3 (original release in 2002 for the PS2, Gamecube and Xbox, set in the same season (the 02-03 season), but call the remake NBA 2K3 Refresh and release the game in 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One along with NBA 2K17)
ESPN NBA Basketball (original release in 2003 for the PS2 and Xbox, set in the same season (the 03-04 season), but call the remake NBA 2K4 and release the game in 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One along with NBA 2K17)
ESPN NBA 2K5 (original release in 2004 for the PS2 and Xbox, set in the same season (the 04-05 season), but call the remake NBA 2K5 Refresh and release the game in 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One along with NBA 2K18)

2K6 and beyond will be saved for the 2020s and beyond for remakes, but make sure the rosters are accurate as of the end of each season.

Make sure those are remade and also, add in European teams too for those remakes.

On top of licensing being a barrier here - they wouldn't be able to include all the players on those old rosters unless they secure the likeness rights - there's really no point in doing this. Sports games aren't good candidates for remakes. Their updates come in the form of yearly instalments.

Yeah. The only remasters that would make sense are the arcade games. If they remade Street for example, that would be cool.
