The Charlotte Hornets of old made the Hornets brand what it is today. Expansive and globalized.

The 1992-93 Charlotte Hornets in NBA 2K12 Legend Mode

It was announced yesterday that in the new NBA 2K12 game there would be a new mode called, “NBA’s Greatest.” Basically it’s a set of the greatest 15 ever rosters spanning over the entire duration of the NBA’s history. These rosters will all play with the entire roster from that time and go against the other players during that time as well.

The great news is that the Hornets field one such roster from the 1992-93.

The Hornets at that time had a fantastic, diverse and very deeply talent team. Larry Johnson, Muggsy Bogues, Alonzo Mourning, Dell Curry, Kendall Gill, Kenny Gattison and the list goes on. It’s really exciting to see a Hornets roster mentioned in the greatest 15 of all time and I’ll definitely be having a crack and winning a championship with them.

The depth of NBA 2K12 really astounds me. With this mode the TV colour, sound, look and feel will all be reminiscent of that time.

    Oh Boy! that brings back memories. 1992-93 is the first season that I really got into the NBA, I was about 8yrs old. Muggsy Bogues did it for me, he had the heart of a warrior. Really looking forward to NBA 2K12.

    Excellent team! I remember watching a few games these guys on ESPN here in Brazil in the 90s. Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning leave much nostalgia.
