NBA 2K11 is promising to be the best in the franchise's history, bringing with it a special mode called 'The Jordan Challenge', which will enable you to relive 10 of Michael Jordan's finest moments and attempt to replicate key moves that he performed on-court.

The Jordan Challenge will include Jordan's self-proclaimed greatest game of all time in which the Chicago Bulls thrashed the Cleveland Cavaliers by a staggering 69 points in 1990. The mode will also feature Air Jordan's final game with the Bulls in 1998, before he came out of his second retirement to become a Washington Wizard. The Jordan Challenge presumably won't feature that particular chapter in the Jordan saga, nor will it allow you to partake in a mini-game when Mike retired for the first time to play baseball. What was he thinking?

You will however be able to play as the greatest Chicago Bulls teams of all time from the '85-'86, '89-'90, '90-'91, '94-'95, '95-'96, '96-'97, and '97-'98 seasons. So, expect to see Dennis Rodman, Horace Grant, Toni Kukoc and Scottie Pippen making an appearance with coach Phil Jackson on the sidelines.

Check out the NBA 2K11 teaser to see Air Jordan's in-game appearance. It sure is good to see that '23' jersey again. Takes us back.

NBA 2K11 will be dunking in your face on October 5th, 2010.

They honestly should just dedicate the whole achievement list to Jordan/bulls achievements. I really hope they cut out outline ones I hate online achievements. This is going to be the best game 2k has put out yet.

I'm going to put such a spankin on the entire NBA with number23 over and over and over. MJ will have his nuts on Lebrons chin while he dunks it off his fat nose.

IGN has a list of the 10 challenges... I hope they are all achievements as well. My favorite is "The Shrug" one of the best games ever...

The Shrug
When: June 3, 1992. Game 1, 1st round playoffs vs. Blazers
Goal 1: Score 35+ points in the first half
Goal 2: Make 6+ threes in the first half
Goal 3: Hold Drexler to under 20 points
Goal 4: Win the Game
Summary: Just to prove a point, Jordan sets the tone for the series by dominating the first half of this first Finals game.

He must be running low on cash. Only way to explain why he never allowed his likeness to be used in any games when he actually played, but now when he's nearing irrelevancy he shows up. Great for you kids, for a gaming vet like me, I think you guys should have to suffer through years of SG Bulls, Air Morris, and all the other lame clones we had to use after Jordan VS Bird.

I hope there is one achievement where you beat the bulls with the Knicks and rewrite history! I can't wait for this game. Last yr I swore of NBA 2k forever and said I would stick to live…well that didn't last long. I wonder how many years he signed on for.

@BillyRaye: He's not hurting for money at all. The Jordan brand itself is a well established sporting brand. He doesn't even play anymore and everyone buys his apparel. Also, he has appeared in games when he was still playing:

USA Basketball- Sega Genesis (Bulls)
Tecmo NBA Basketball- NES (Bulls)
NBA 2k2- Dreamcast, PS2, XBOX, Gamecube (Wizards)
NBA 2k3- PS2, XBOX, Gamecube (Wizards)
NBA Street- Gamecube (Was on the Wizards)
NBA Street Vol. 2- Gamecube, XBOX, PS2 (3 versions of him plus current Wizards self at the time.)
Jordan VS Bird-NES
NBA Live 2000
NBA Live 2001
NBA Live 2002
(Yes in live 2000-2003 he wasn't on the bulls and long retired, but u can still put him on the roster.)
NBA Live 2003 (Wizards)
NBA Live 2004 (Wizards)
ESPN Basketball 2004 (aka NBA 2k4)
NBA 2k11 (Bulls)(Retired)

You probably didn't play any of these titles after Jordan vs Bird :/
He's in them and he was playing basket ball at the time.

I think he was also in the Bulls VS Blazers game too...u missed out.

@ #24
I actually have Chaos in the windy city still!! I forgot about Bulls vs Lakers. But I didn't include Chaos in the windy City because it really wasn't a sports game. I was showing #18 the sports games MJ used his likeness in.

BTW, thanks a lot 24 now I want to play Chaos in the Windy City now. ROFL
