The 15 Greatest Pros—and the Greatest Pair of Cons—Come to NBA 2K12

Before Air Jordan, Converse was the top brand on the basketball court, singularly identified with Julius Erving since his ABA days. The only way I'd have a bigger shoe-gasm watching this video is if Dr. J set those kicks down on a red-white-and-blue ball, and the camera raised up to reveal a New York Nets uniform.

But this'll do nicely. Erving joins fellow Converse spokesmen Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, a skyhooking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and a shoe salesman from Wilmington, N.C. who logs a lot of flight time, name of Jordan. NBA 2K12 arrives Oct. 4.
