...which wasn't ideal but then I'm sure people would've complained about the fake players ruining the mode if they were subbed in. Not getting the likeness rights for everyone put them in a tough spot and I thought it was a decent enough compromise given the circumstances but it's good that they should be able to do it right in NBA 2K12 with complete rosters.

1985-86 Boston Celtics, Sam Vincent(#11) appears in most of the Bird screens.
1986-87 Los Angeles Lakers, Kareem has the compleatly shaved head and I see Byron Scott(#4) in several shots.
1991-92 Chicago Bulls, I see BJ(#10) Cartwright(#24) and Grant(#54 with goggles) in the back court @0:36.
1993-94 Houston Rockets, others have pointed out Hakeem and Maxwell, I see Otis Thorpe(#33) behind Jordan @0:36.
1991-92? Portland Trailblazers, You can see Magic driving on Duckworth(#00) and Drexler(#22) @0:30
1985-86? Atlanta Hawks, Bird nails a Jumper on Randy Wittman(#10) @0:33, Kareem Hits a Skyhook on what looks like Tree Rollins @0:34.

(edited to add:) I can't seem to place what year the Sixers are, the only player I can make out from the screen shots(besides dr. j.)is a place holder #96. No one wore that number and he's obviously a CAP. I'm hoping it's the Fo-Fo-Fo(well fo-fi-fo)1982-1983, but I can see them going for either 1979-80(dr. j.'s under the basket sweep) or 1981-82(rock-the-cradle dunk).

You missed Kenny the jet smith at 0.51 sec behind Jordan number 30 (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y)

"I thought it was a decent enough compromise"

Generic players would have been a superior compromise to no bench. The mode was unplayable since it was the Bulls vs other teams' starters.

That's your take, fair enough. I personally was OK with it knowing why they decided to go that way, I guarantee there would've been complaints either way. From the sounds of things it won't be an issue this year, so much the better.
