With the announcement that Scottie Pippen, Allen Iverson and Charles Barkley are going to be included in NBA 2K13, how many stars from the past are still unaccounted for?

#NBA2K13 features dozens of legends including Shaq, Pippen & Allen Iverson!. Check out some legendary screenshots here: 2kgam.es/NBA2K13

Barkley is pictured in the picture below, second from the right.

The first one that comes to my mind is Reggie Miller. Reggie hasn't appeared in a video game since he retired from the NBA in 2005. But with 2K having all but mastered cyber expressions of basketball nostalgia, I ask: Can we get some Reggie with our 2K13 please?

Perhaps the greatest three-point shooter in history, and one of the game's most legendary clutch performers, would just about put the icing on the cake for me.

I'm already in love with the NBA 2K series, but adding Miller would turn me into a stalker.

He'd likely be a part of one of the Indiana Pacers teams from the past. The 2000 team that reached the NBA Finals seems sensible, and that would mean Rik Smits, Jalen Rose, Mark Jackson, Antonio Davis and Dale Davis as well.

I could definitely go for that.

Miller would be awesome, but while I'm being greedy, here are a few other stars I'd like to see in the game as well.

 

Mark Aguirre, Dallas Mavericks

Aguirre was the first great Mavericks player, and he played on some really good teams in the mid-to-late 1980s. 

He was a top-notch scorer during the decade, averaging at least 22 points per game for six years in a row. Aguirre could fill it up, and one of those Mavericks teams would be a blast to play with.

 

Bob Cousy, Boston Celtics

NBA 2K12 had a Celtics team from the 1960s, but it didn't include Cousy. He's one of the most famous and recognizable players of the Celtics legends. It seems only right that he be included.

Honestly, the omission list is getting shorter and shorter every year.

But adding the Houdini of the Hardwood would be just another notch in 2K's belt.
