Maybe Lebron should play Hockey, theres no 4th quarter.

yea good joke thats been said too many times...

I like how think LeBron is the greatest player ever. He's not even the best player on his team. I would take D-Wade over him anyday.

As a life-long Mavericks fan - this championship means so much. Not only did Dirk deserve a ring, but it was great to see Kidd, Marion, Peja, and Jet finally get that elusive ring. Dirk MUST be on the cover of 2K12. Arguable for Rose or Griffin to get the nod, but they will get there eventually. This Finals cemented Dirk as a top-20 (possibly top-15) talent in the history of the game. Get him on the cover and fix his hair. That is all.

Yeah Dirk deserves to be on the cover this year, 5 of the past 8 champs have had a cover athlete, so the trend should continue. And the developers better rate him as one of the best in the league this year, he is at least a 90 rating, was in the low 80's in 2k11.

Yeah, he was an 83 overall when it came out. Unfortunately, that is just how their rating system works. His position kind of screws his rating up. The creators mentioned if he was a SF, he would easily be in the 90s. But since he is a PF, the game looks for a different skill set. The highest rated PF's are the ones that rack up rebounds and blocks. Normally PF's arent shooters. Thats why his rating takes a hit in the game. He doesnt post up and score a ton in the paint. He hits shots from the outside. Hes not a typical PF. You will probably see Garnett, Boozer, Duncan, etc all rated higher. Dirk is better than all 3 of those guys but the game sees his low rebounding skills, blocking, and defense and his rating takes a hit. He should easily be 94+ but it likely wont ever happen because the games rating system. He will continue to be 85, unless they somehow overhaul the rating system.
