VIDEO: NBA 2K12 Trailer Makes Case For Greatest Video Game Ever

UPDATE: Here are the full classic rosters for the game.

If you are even remotely close to being a basketball fan, then you will drool over this NBA 2K12 trailer. Last year's game featured the "Jordan Challenge," which allowed you to play with a handful of classic teams. This year's edition, though, blows that feature out of the water. You name a classic team, whether legendary or obscure, and chances are you can play with them in NBA 2K12.

In an attempt to further prove this point, we're going to name every single player in the video, or at least as many as we can.
