Every October the two biggest NBA-simulation video games face off in a retail-sales competition, with sales numbers being the deciding factor of the victor. This year, the primary weapon utilized by both 2K Sports and EA Sports is Michael Jordan; EA Sports offers a special Booster Pack of special Air Jordan in-game memorabilia, but NBA 2K11 gives players the opportunity to not only play as Michael Jordan, but to re-live his greatest moments on the court. Using your video-game controller, you can maneuver Michael Jordan to 63 points against the Celtics in the ’86 Playoffs or leave a helpless Bryon Russell in the dust with a mean cross at the top of the key and drill a Championship winning jumper.
If that wasn’t enough, you can play as Michael Jordan on any other team, building his legacy through another franchise. That’s right, Portland fans, you can erase the memories of that Sam Bowie draft pick and pair him with Clyde Drexler. On top of all these great in-game capabilities, Michael Jordan is seen wearing many of the historic Air Jordans throughout the game, and can be seen in other colorways too. There’s a lot to see so check out Michael Jordan in action with some of his most memorable kicks after the jump and let us know what you think.
