Reconstructing Jordan's Bulls in NBA Live 2002

Image

Even though it's definitely not the pinnacle of the series, NBA Live 2002 is a game that I find myself thinking about and returning to every now and again. As I've mentioned before, it's a game that I'm oddly nostalgic for, in large part because of a memorable Sacramento Kings Franchise that I finally gained closure on years later. Of course, I also had a less successful Franchise experience with the Utah Jazz, in which things got a little too wacky. As I previously remarked, if I wanted to shake things up and do something a little unusual, it might've been more fun to try to reconstruct Michael Jordan's championship-winning Chicago Bulls.

It's not too late to explore that idea, though. Just as I recreated my Kings Franchise to finish it off all these years later, I thought that it'd be fun to attempt to reconstruct the core of the Jordan-led Bulls teams. Not all of the key players from those squads are still active in NBA Live 2002, but more than a couple are available to acquire. Can it be done? Let's take a look back...way back...

As I know, NBA Live 2002 is solely played on PS2 not released on PC. What I'm curious is which generation do you choose to recruit on? :wink:

I think people do forget that at its peak, NBA Live was doing some great things. Was it perfect? No, but it was the standard for quite some time, and held its own in the early years going up against NBA 2K.

NBA Live 2002 isn't up there as one of my all-time personal favourites, but I do like it and am nostalgic for it all the same. Now that I'm doing the 25th Anniversary content, I'll be revisiting it again in the not too distant future.

It was indeed, though that doesn't have much to do with reconstructing MJ's Bulls in NBA Live 2002. ;)
