NEW YORK (AP) After all those championships and MVP awards, Michael Jordan has finally arrived — on the cover of a basketball video game.
Jordan fronts NBA 2K11, a game that allows fans to add Jordan to their favorite team — if they can first replicate some of his greatest highlights.
One of sports' top pitchmen during his Hall of Fame playing career, Jordan had never before appeared on the cover of an NBA-licensed basketball game.
Now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, the six-time champion with the Chicago Bulls said Thursday the deciding factor in doing it now was the opportunity "to connect to this generation, when in essence a lot of these young kids never saw me play."
