NBA 2k13 2k14 Legends & Notable Fans

NBA 2k14 Update: It appears that the requirements for a “Legend” to follow you in NBA 2k14 haven’t changed from 2k13. At least that’s what it looks like early on in the game. I’ve just picked up Gary Payton for 5 steals in a game (which is exactly the same requirement as in 2k13). You can probably use this list as a rough guideline to what you need to do – or if you remember what you did last year in 2k13 that would probably be more accurate since the requirement appears to depend on what position you play and possibly also play style (athletic, slashing, defensive, etc.).

So, you’re one of those people with OCD and want to collect all the little ponies as fans on NBA 2k13. Wait, no – NBA Legends as fans. Here’s an incomplete, self-generated list of the NBA Legends you can get to “follow” you in the Social Media section of NBA 2k13 and what hoops you need to jump through to get them on the follow-wagon.

Player Condition CONFIRMED
Michael Jordan 63+ points during a playoff game 2k13/2k14
Magic Johnson 15+ assists 2k13/2k14
Clyde Drexler Triple Double against Portland Trailblazers 2k13/2k14
Isaiah Thomas Double Double against Detroit Pistons 2k13/2k14
Joe Dumars Win by a large margin against the Chicago Bulls 2k13/2k14
Dennis Rodman 19+ rebounds 2k13/2k14
Steve Kerr 5+ 3-pointers 2k13/2k14
Clark Kellogg Triple Double 2k13/2k14
Chris Mullin Beat Golden State with X number of 3-pointers 2k13/2k14
Penny Hardaway 30+ points 10+ assists against the Orlando Magic 2k13/2k14
Shaq O’Neal 60+ points 10+ rebounds (15+ assists?) against Lakers 2k13/2k14
Gary Payton 5+ steals 2k13/2k14
Shawn Kemp 47+ points 15+ rebounds 2k13/2k14
David Robinson 71+ points 2k13/2k14
Dominique Wilkins 7+ dunks 2k13/2k14

If you know how to get the NBA Legends labeled as UNKNOWN to follow you, do drop a comment and mention how you managed it (or your stats for that particular game so we can possibly dissect it). Also, please note that while I have labeled most of these as CONFIRMED, these stats are probably higher than what is actually required to get any of these players to follow you. Example: Clark Kellogg and Clyde Drexler are labeled as a Triple Double each, but some people report a Double Double as being enough. It just so happens that I personally had a Triple Double in those games, which is why I’ve posted a Triple Double.

Comments report:

Clark Kellog follows you after a double double against his former team the Pacers

NBA 2k14 Note: I picked up Kellogg after a loss against the Pacers with 38/5/1 (P/A/R). So it’s pretty unclear what triggers Kellogg.

I’ve stopped playing 2k14, so there’ll be no further updates (unless posted in the comments section). The PC version of 2k14 really left me disappointed – I was expecting next gen features. If I pick up a XB1/PS4, I might start playing again… but until then you can probably use the current 2k13 list as a rough guide to what is required.

Chris Mullin

Here’s my statline (as a PG) for the game where I got Chris Mullin. This was in NBA 2k14 on the PS4 (but should be the exact same thing on 2k13 as well as “current gen” consoles).

  1. Hey guys, I played against Orlando Magic and my Statics were (I’m a SG player):

    41 min
    50 pts
    11 ast
    7 stl
    5 reb
    0 blk
    20/26 FG
    5/10 3PT
    5/7 FT (i know… lame, usually I got 100%)
    3 TO
    grade A

    and nothing with Penny Hardaway…
    Anybody knows why?!

    PS sorry for the poor english.

  2. For the legends that require you to play their former team, I think you need to complete the stat line in their building not yours. I had triple double with 40 plus points at home against magic and didn’t get penny. Next game I got triple double at Detroit and got Isaiah Thomas.

    • thanks for the feedback. I forgot to say that I played at the Orlando Magic’s Arena, so… a bug maybe?
      PS: I¡m playing NBA 2K13.

  3. I’m pretty sure to get Clark Kellogg you have to score 30+ points against the Pacers my stats for that game almost matched yours only i had 31 points

  4. I didn’t beat the warriors, but got chris mullin with 38 pts 8reb and 10ast 4 steals and a grade A plus performance.

  5. This was the tweet I got from Clark Kellogg when he followed me: “@******, You caught me by suprise when I was calling the game tonight.” I scored 71 points as the Caveliers, and was playing against Lance Stephonson and the Pacers.

    • you get Jordan by getting 63+ points in a playoff game. you get Magic Johnson by getting 15+ assist. Clyde Drexler get triple double against Portland. Dennis Rodman get 19+ rebounds. Steve Kerr make a lot of 3′s. Chris Mullen go off against the Warriors. Gary Payton get 5+ steals Shawn Kemp get 45+ points and 15+ rebounds. David Robinson score 71+ points. this is on NBA 2k14.

  6. I just got Shaq as a fan by scoring 51 pts, 11 Rebs, 8 assists and 5 blocks as a point guard. So I think it may be 50 and 10 against Lakers.

  7. For Shaq I went 58pts, 12reb 2ast…but I also had 5blk. With some of the things I’m reading I have a feeling that maybe matchup performance and teammate grade might be taken into account

  8. I just got chris mullins. I played against golden state and had 66 points 10 rebounds 11 steals 7 assist and 3 blocks so maybe it was the points idk but I also demolished them 126 to 92

  9. I got a triple double againest the magic and I didnt get penny as a fan. My stats were: 24 min 42 points 5 rebounds 11 assists 12 steals 5 blocks. I played them at their homecourt

    • Was that against Golden State? 74/8/5/7/6 (PTS/REB/AST/STL/BLK) with 5 3s is what I did to get him (playing against Golden State). Until 2k actually comes out and states the requirements, the exact numbers to get some players like Mullin especially (and some others) is going to be a case of trial and error. As always, a disclaimer, I’m playing as a PG, so the requirements “might” be different for other positions.

    • Follow up: So I went overboard to make sure I got Mullin and I did. My stats: 83pt, 8reb, 15ast, 14stl, 4blk, 36-62FG, 6-163s, 5-5FT… as a shooting guard against GS

      Given everyone else’s experience, I think it’s clear most people aren’t getting Mullin bc of 3s – that’s incidental. I also doubt it’s blowing out GS. Seems like maybe a double-double is needed or a shooting percentage above 50… something like that.

      • 6-163s?

        Anyway, based on both our stats for Mullin, I’m guessing it’s the shooting % – we both have above 60%. A double double is pretty common, so there wouldn’t be so many people complaining about being unable to get Mullin if it was something so simple… then again 60% shooting is also pretty common for me, so again I’m kinda stumped.
