With NBA stars like Rajon Rondo and Stephen Jackson calling for a decision to the lockout, 2K Sports is sparking up a debate to see which basketball legends are the greatest to ever play the game. Two weeks ago, the pixelated kings of the courts announced that retired greats Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird would appear on three different box covers. Today, we have three new screenshots showing off three of the league's best and brightest in action.

LeBron James, Josh Smith, and Kevin Garnett look more and more like their real-life counterparts, as NBA 2K12 ships out in stores on October 4. From Akron's own becoming a South Florida resident to Smith's custom-made Adidas shoes, 2K12 is shaping up to be another nail driven into EA Sports' coffin. The game can now be pre-ordered from any video game retailer nationwide and will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, and the Wii.

Check out the images below and let us know what you think about the new screenshots in our comments section.
