Not only did Michael contribute on the basketball court but he also did in the virtual world…..or more he didnt which made it a big deal when he did….if you get me.
The reason MJ never appeared, in his licensing agreement with the NBA, excluded him from the NBA’s Group licensing agreement (yeah that good). So when ever someone wanted to make an NBA game (live, 2K) they had to ask Jordan Directly and negotiate with him………..and he was far from cheap to put him in a game.
2K11 is the first game where Michael has appeared along side with the rest of the NBA.
Tho he has featured in other popular games like Space Jam, NBA Street Jordan vs Bird and my personal favorite “Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City”
