NBA 2K12 adds Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dr. J to the roster in its 'NBA's Greatest' mode

Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird aren't the only classic ballers hitting the virtual hardwood in NBA 2K12 on October 4. 2K Games has confirmed that Julius Erving (Dr. J) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar will also be in the game. Personally, we've got our fingers crossed for a mini-game where you get to fight Abdul-Jabbar, Game of Death style.*

These Hall of Famers will be playable in a new "NBA's Greatest" mode, where players can relive basketball's classic moments using 15 NBA teams of years past. These teams and players can also be unlocked for use against current franchises.

Drive the lane into our gallery below to check out some screens of these guys in-game.

*No matter how many letters we write in crayon on the back of Denny's place mats pleading for this, we're sure it'll never happen.
