The highly anticipated release of basketball video game NBA 2K20 is almost here. NBA 2K20 hits shelves on September 6 and ahead of the title's release, 2K has slowly started to roll out details about the game. On Tuesday 2K revealed the starting lineups for their All-Decade teams, which of course included an appearance from a couple of Bulls legends. 

From what the 2K team has unveiled so far, there are at least two teams that will feature former Bulls. The 1980s All-Decade team will feature Michael Jordan and the 1990s All-Decade team will have Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. 

The 1980s version of MJ was a shoo-in to make the 1980s squad as that decade was perhaps Jordan's finest in terms of pure point production. 'His Airness' averaged over 30 points four times prior to the 1990-91 season. 

It is no shock that MJ's best teammate during all six of the Bulls NBA Championships joins him on the 1990s All-Decade roster. 

Pippen spent 12 years with the Bulls (as a player) and that stretch included 11 consecutive seasons in a Bulls uniform from the 1988 season to the 1998 season. Over his 12 years with the Bulls Pippen averaged 17.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. 

Almost all of the rivals of the 80s/90s Bulls are covered in 2K's All-Decade teams, including Hall of Famers Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, John Stockton, and Karl Malone. 

Only time will tell if Jordan will show up in his Washington Wizards form on the 2000s team or if any members of the Tom Thibodeau/Derrick Rose Bulls will make the 2010s roster, but for now Bulls Nation can rejoice in knowing that they can relieve the Golden Age of Bulls basketball when NBA 2K20 drops on September 6.
