The developers of the NBA 2K12 basketball simulation have recently announced a new batch of playable NBA legends available for download, and four Denver Nuggets have made it in. If you are starving for quality NBA basketball during the NBA lockout, NBA 2K12 just might be the best alternative on the market (unless you really like watching classic NBA games on NBATV).
If you have ever wanted to play as David Thompson, Alex English, Kiki Vandeweghe, or Fat Lever, now is your time. All four players have been added to the most recent NBA 2K12 Legends update as members of the Denver Nuggets. The opportunity to take David Thompson and Alex English head-to-head against modern NBA players is a pretty cool way to forget about the pain of the NBA Lockout, even if just for a few hours.
In other notes on the update, Allen Iverson, Reggie Miller and Charles Barkley are still absent from the game.
