Arrow Why Jordan isnt in Any Baskeball games?

Refer to my Title, I only saw Jordan in NBA live 03.

Why u think why they didnt put hin there?


anyways Jeffrey Jordan is a Joke..He's Just a litlle joke who runs around the court.. No Offense.


I think Jordan Would be the best player.. he's rating would be 99!!

I noticed something in NBA live Series, the players oVerall Rating is low, i mean when i played NBa live 05 I noticed that there players sucks comparing to NBA 2k's's ..if you dont get what i mean then i guess just dont bother to reply O.o

They lost the rights to him after a few games...I remember both nba live 00 and nba live 02 had him but i think 03 was the last to have him....I think that's why they don't have 50's/60's/70's/80's/90's all star teams on the game now

He was 99 rating in both games i had.

I've also noticed that the players are ranked higher in 2k than live i think thats because 2k must go by 1 is worst nba player and 99 is best nba player type thing and live goes by 1 is worst 99 is perfect type thing. Live has never been one to rate someone perfect on its games... I think Kobe and Garnett being 97 is highest they've ever had besides Jordan

I won't swear to it, but I think it has to do with Jordan signing exclusive rights with another company.

Because ironically, back in the late 80's early 90's, EA did a Michael Jordan video game for the PC called Michael Jordan In Flight Basketball. So it's clear that at one point, they had his rights. Why they lost them, I don't know.

The only players I can remember not being in a game due to a rights issue, are players who had their own game out like Barkley and Shaq.

I thought it was because when it came time to resign some agreement, Jordan didn't sign. That seems pretty stupid, because having himself in a video game would be a good business move to make sure young kids who only got to see him in highlight videos would ensure his legacy "lived" on.

Shaq has a game called Shaq-Fu for Sega Genesis. It's an action fighter game.


Jordan had a game back in the days called "Chaos in the Windy City". It was an action game for the Genesis as well I think.

I was under the impression that Jordan messed up and lost his rights when he signed the contract for that game... and thus has never been licensed to be in another game.

However, some people in this thread said he was in NBA Live... so I'm not sure what's up.

Yeah, Barkley had one called shut up and jam or something for Genesis and SNES I think.

The others are listed above. I think Shaq had more than one game actually.. I know he had Shaq Fu... I thought he had one later on the N64 or something.

I think it's more complicated than that. I don't for one second believe that EA Sports had to get agreements from every player in the league to be in their video game. Could you imagine them having to get a signature from Danny Ferry and Tim Kempton way on the end of the Cavs bench? Why would they bother?

I think they sign a general contract with the NBA players association that gives them general rights to the players. I think Jordan, Shaq, Barkely, etc. weren't available because they had separate licensing agreements.

IIRC, PIppen and Stockton were both in Live games after 03.

I think Barkley only missed one year or so. I'm not sure Shaq missed any years.

If Jordan was in a game, they'd have to have an actual stat for 'clutchness' just to make the avatar's abilities that believable.

Actually, that game was something of a homebrew and was "unofficial"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barkley...nd_Jam:_Gaiden

The original shut up and jam was a street basketball game of some sort.
