2K Sports has changed how you will play the Greatest Mode – Unlike last year’s Jordan Challenge Mode you are not required to complete all statistical objectives. All you need to do is put up a Win and you will unlock both teams for use in Quick Play. It would be interesting to put Legends of the classic era against Modern Day Basketball celebrities. Who would you pick ? Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant ?

Those who pre-order the game will get two more teams – 1990-91 Warriors and 2001-02 Kings. NBA 2K12 will release on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 4.
