Sneak Peak at NBA 2k11

The game felt a little smoother than 2K10, with less robotic movement from the players than in previous basketball games.

there’s a game within the game called The Jordan Challenge. In this Challenge, there are ten sequences to play — The Flu Game, The Shrug, and plenty more — where you play as Michael Jordan and are tasked with replicating some of Money’s most famous performances.

So it looks as though Lang Whitaker was bestowed with an honor that many of us wish we could have only been there to witness.

In this quick excerpt Lang used his opportunity to focus his allocated time of one hour to playing one of the modes in the Jordan challenge called “The Arrival” From what he says it appears that this game is set to be the best basketball game of all time.  It appears that with the expectation of some minor details 2ksports has certainly propelled the NBA game franchise to new heights.  Lang says that in his hour he executed a move that depicted Jordan to a point:”I drove baseline and pump-faked a shot, and the Jordan on-screen executed a one-handed pump-fake while palming the ball, exactly like MJ used to do.”

I can’t wait to see what else 2k has in store for us because I am pretty sure that this early before release there are a few more secrets that have yet to be revealed.  But what I have been able to establish from leaks from various places is the following about the Jordan Challenge mode.  There are ten challenges that depict some of the moments that have immortalized and engraved Jordan into the memory of basketball fans, and we get to relive them all.  It appears that they are all set in their original settings with 3 goals to attain for each.
