NBA 2K13 Finally Answers The 2012 Olympics Team vs. The Dream Team Question

Once again, the best sports videogame in today’s market comes through with a big announcement–both the 2012 USA Olympic Team and the Dream Team (minus Scottie Pippen) are going to be included in the game. You can thank Jay-Z for that (seriously). Now the only question that remains is who’s going to be ranked higher? I’m sure that they’ll rank Jordan a 99 (and Lebron close behind), but if you don’t know how to properly use a center, you’ll probably want to stick with the 2012 team. Pretty excited to work Assistant BustedCoverage Editor Rob’s a** with some small ball.

It’s great to see all the big names returning to the court but the question on everyone’s mind is the Scottie Pippen situation. As you can see in the official 2k13 photo below, Scottie is noticeably absent from the roster. What gives? Is he also not going to be on the throwback Jordan Bulls roster? No official statement has been made by either 2K or by Scottie, but the whispers around the web say point to the fact that Mr. Pippen is notoriously stingy. Perhaps the number on 2k’s check was too low. At the end of the day, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll never find out.

      Personally, I'm not going to be too miffed that Scottie's going to be absent. Met him once when I was a kid and the guy was a total d-bag.

      Yeah NYC, prob right after the fucking bulls destroyed us at the garden, right? Fuck the Bulls they are the red sox to a yankee fan in a knicks fans case. But Pippen was a good number two for his team, he helped them beat us. That is like leaving Wade of the 2012 team lol oh yeah they already did that! But really Pippen was a good player. Douche or not you know?

    3. Bob Clark says:

      They should replace him with the guy who should have been on the team to begin with. Isiah Thomas

      That's Scottie, still thinking he's greater than he is. Without Mike Scottie is just an ordinary 2 guard or small forward.

    6. mike says:

      I don't recall the Dream Team only winning a game by 4 points or the final game for the gold by 7 points. Enough said the Dream Team would have beat this 2012 team hands down.

      1. Earl says:

        The original dream team didn't play teams that also had NBA players on the team. This years team faced a team whose entire starting line up consisted of NBA players

      2. Trav says:

        Dražen Petrović, Toni Kukoč, Dino Rađa, Vlade Divac, Predrag Danilović and Žarko Paspalj… All NBA players the dream team played in the final game.. Toni and Vlade > Marc and Pau

      3. Tom says:

        you are out of your mind if you think Toni & Vlade are better than an interior of Marc, Pau and Ibaka. On top of that, you fail to mention the shooters Spain has as well as every other team the Dream Team of 1992 faced. If they played the same competition this team faced they wouldn't have strolled their way to the final game either

      4. LaLakers2408 says:

        vlade and toni werent on the same team retard

      5. Trav says:

        Ok.. no Toni and Vlade but Toni was definately on the team same with Petrovic and Rada. These guys all averaged numbers in the NBA similar to Pau's. 15-16 points a game and 8-9 rebounds. The Croatian team was no joke. Serge Ibaka.. really? He would not have started on the Croatian team.. The Croatian team was all shooters… You are kidding yourself if you really think the Dream Team did not have competition. You're either 30 or younger or have no clue.. Thanks for the comment Lakers2408.. Made me go check the stats to see how good the Croatian team really was.

      6. LaLakers2408 says:

        Divac was on the Serbian team and Petrovic died before the olympics. clearly you didnt do youre research

      7. LaLakers2408 says:

        Vlade and Toni werent on the same team dipshit

      Oh, that's funny. I thought that Scottie was broke. (although he says not) But even if it is a "low" price, if you are seriously hurting for cash, take the damn money. How lame without him. AND the throwback Bulls? Seriously? WTF Scottie.
