• Adidas' NBA Revolution 30 Jersey: TechFit, Climacool, The Works

    Looks like some of the technological advancements adidas brought to the World Cup (and have since moved into the domestic leagues… see Alexandre Pato wearing that TechFit kit) are starting to make their way into American sports. The company announced earlier today the release of NBA Revolution 30, the “lightest and most technologically advanced” NBA uniforms ever. That means when… Read More

  • Apparently the entire NBA consists of gamers

    Kobe Bryant: huge nerd. Granted, he’s probably the best basketball player since Michael Jordan—LeBron would really benefit from winning a ring or two—but if you’re traveling the country armed with a fully portable Xbox 360 and customized PSP, then yeah, you’re a huge nerd. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. Read More

  • EA confirms Wii version of NBA JAM

    Let’s not mention the disturbing trend that’s been cropping up lately – namely that gaming studios are taking a tip from Hollywood and seem to be rehashing a lot of old titles instead of coming up with new ones – and instead rejoice about the recent rumor-turned-official announcement: NBA JAM is coming for the Wii.

  • The NBA starts tomorrow, and so does NBA Live 10's Dynamic Season Mode

    A little birdie, also known as an e-mail, tells me that EA Sports will flip the switch on Dynamic Season Mode in NBA Live 10 tomorrow. Well, for the Xbox 360 version; PS3 owners will have to wait till Thursday. This, of course, coincides with the start of the new NBA season, to be won, according to that same NBA Live 10, by the Cavs. Read More

  • NBA Live 10 predicts a Cavs win this season (and LeBron will dominate all over again)

    It was just a few days ago that EA Sports’ NHL 10 predicted that the Pittsburg Penguins would win the Stanley Cup this season. Now it’s the NBA’s turn, with NBA Live 10 having predicted that, yes, the Cavs will finally do it and win it all. And then LeBron can finally leave Cleveland and go to the Nets! Read More

  • March Madness streaming in HD this year

    Another year that March Madness is about to descend upon college basketball fans everywhere and another year that it appears my University of Puget Sound Loggers haven’t made it anywhere close to the big tournament. I’m beginning to think they might NEVER win a national championship. Maybe a little HD video streaming will dull my pain. Read More

  • PC version of NBA 2K9 ships without CD key

    Oopsies. Seems that just about every initial copy of 2K Sports’ NBA 2K9 for the PC shipped out without the ever-important CD key. You know – that, like, 72-digit sequence of letters, numbers, and symbols that you have to ceremoniously enter when you first install the game in order to prevent piracy? A forum post on 2K’s website started out innocently enough with a simple… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: NBA 08 (PS3 version) for $29.99

    Hey look! That’s a really good deal for a PlayStation 3 game, right? It’s NBA 08, featuring basketball! Never mind that said that it’s "better than last year’s game, but it’s still not worth playing." That’s just a figure of speech for "it’d be worth buying if it was under $30" or something similar to that. Makes a… Read More

  • Ballmer: Microsoft is a three year old basketball player

    Oh Ballmie. You so crazy. I love following your antics, especially when it comes to Google. Don’t ever change, kay? Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer recently referred to his company as a three year old child playing basketball against a 12-year old (Google). The three year old is named Johnny. Read More

  • EA Family Play Dumbs Down Wii Controls So Grandpa Can Play

    EA, the gaming company we all love to hate (or just plain hate), has come up with a way to drain even more money from even more people. A new feature called EA Family Play will debut with the three main sports titles for 2008 for the Wii, Madden, NBA Live and FIFA Soccer. “FP,” as I have now just nicknamed it, dumbs down the controls to the point where “the console controls… Read More

  • Hang Timer Times Your Hang Time, Playa

    There was a kid in my high school who thought he was good at basketball. He was not. What he was good at was making the “Jordan Face” when he’d go for a lay-up, tongue out and everything. But no matter how much we told him that he sucked, he was convinced he was just like Mike. We didn’t have the Hang Timer in 1991, instead, sadly, we had Hammer Time. But if we had… Read More
