As mentioned in this video (along with the '99-'00 Vince Carter/T-Mac Raptors and '00-'01 Lakers):

That's awesome.  I will definitely be buying this.

I guess I see the appeal of the Vinsanity Raptors, but to me, it's a stretch to call that a "classic" team.

Residual Steph Curry love.
At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

Well, a couple of NBA 2Ks ago, I recall the 2001-2002 Sacramento Kings being a classic team that you'd get as a code for preordering the game (I think that was for 2K13 -- correct me if I'm wrong).

The 2000-2001 Philadelphia 76ers have been in the game for a couple of years, too. (Of course, Allen Iverson is pretty well beloved in the lore of basketball gaming, and that team made the Finals that year.)

Trying to think of other examples. Can't remember if 2K15 had them, but I know a few years ago one of the early to mid '90s Denver Nuggets teams (Dikembe Mutombo) were on the game.

I bet a lot of people will use that '99-'00 Raps teams purely for Vince Carter dunks. For T-Mac I'd rather see the '02-'03 Magic or '04-'05 Rockets (with Yao). I'm a sucker for classic teams, even if some of these aren't really all that old.

Aw crap, that makes me want to buy it and waste all my time on it.  I already see myself using it to beat up on every other classic team in NBA history.
