Starting Five: Eric Snow, Allen Iverson, George Lynch, Tyrone Hill, Matt Geiger

Don't laugh: the '99-'00 Sixers might have been Iverson and a bunch of random dudes (including a George Lynch who's not the metal guitarist), but as the cover athlete for the NBA 2K series' first edition, Iverson and his game received the most attention from 2K Sports. 2K may have staked its cred on being more sim than NBA Live out of the gate, but playing with Iverson early on was the closest you could get to button-mashing, ankle-breaking heaven with a player. It still mostly holds true for the version of Iverson from the '00-'01 Sixers who appears in NBA 2K13. Nobody puts players on the ground and slithers to the basket like The Answer.
