Visual Concepts and 2K

What is a list of these teams doing here?

1985-86 Chicago Bulls
1989 to 1992 Chicago Bulls
1994 to 1998 Chicago Bulls

1985-86 Boston Celtics
1989-90 Atlanta Hawks
1989-90 Cleveland Cavaliers
1989-90 Detroit Pistons
1990-91 Los Angeles Lakers
1991-92 Portland Trailblazers
1994-95 New York Knicks
1995-96 Seattle Supersonics
1996-97 Utah Jazz
1997-98 Utah Jazz

2K is blowing the doors off... These teams have been confirmed as playable teams in 2K11's NBA game this year. They will be part of a Jordan "be a pro" like feature in the game. There is rumor of more coming out. I'd like to see them go a little further back in time and add more teams from the 80s. It is pretty amazing that the 86 Celtics are on here. They are quite possibly the best team in NBA history. Man, and the "Bad Boys"? and Riley's Knicks? Could it be Starks, Ewing, Oakley, Mason teaming up again? Those guys loved being Knicks. Talk about a trip down memory lane. That team played with more heart then any other in NBA history. That's right.

This falls in line with more teams the better theory that I have. Classic teams is a start, but I'd like to see the inclusion of the NBA's D league and international leagues as well. I'll say it again, EA's FIFA has it right with all the teams and leagues. MLB 10: The Show gets it too with AAA and AA ball. Madden is falling behind here. Football may be limited because it is mainly and American thing, but why not just include NCAA with the NFL? Why make it a different franchise? Okay, that may be a bit much.
