New 'NBA Jam' to Be Released on Wii
Needless to say, for a certain segment of America, NBA Jam is reason enough to buy a Wii if you don't already have one. I'm so stoked I've already formulated the two-man teams I can't wait to play for every NBA franchise. Have a look, if you like.
Atlanta: Josh Smith and Josh Smith. (There's gotta be a cheat for that, right?)
Boston: Rajon Rondo and Bill Walker.
Charlotte: Boris Diaw and Alexis Ajinca. Or the slightly more realistic Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson. (You know your real life NBA roster is weird when your two best players would make one of the most insanely weird NBA Jam duos.)
Chicago: Brad Miller and Aaron Gray.
Cleveland: LeBron James. Just LeBron.
Dallas: Rodrigue Beaubois and Shawn Marion, provided EA gives Marion throwback 2004 stat values.
Denver: Ty Lawson and Nene.
Detroit: Jonas Jerebko and Austin Daye.
Golden State: I can't decide between Kelenna Azubuike-Anthony Morrow, Anthony Randolph-Andris Biedrins or Corey Maggette-Monta Ellis.
Houston: Carl Landry and Chuck Hayes. Of course. Like I even need to say that.
Indiana: Roy Hibbert and Tyler Hansbrough.
L.A. Clippers: Baron Davis and Ricky Davis.
L.A. Lakers: Adam Morrison and D.J. Mbenga.
Memphis: Zach Randolph and an unlocked throwback Stromile Swift.
Miami: Mario Chalmers and Michael Beasley.
Milwaukee: Brandon Jennings and Hakim Warrick, or Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Ersan Ilyasova.
Minnesota: Jonny Flynn and Ramon Sessions. Or Kevin Love and Al Jefferson.
New Jersey: Devin Harris and Drazen Petrovic.
New Orleans: Chris Paul and Julian Wright.
New York: Nate Robinson and Larry Hughes.
Oklahoma City: Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka.
Orlando: Jason Williams and Anthony Johnson.
Philadelphia: Marreese Speights and Jason Kapono.
Phoenix: Jared Dudley and Louis Amundson. Or Steve Nash and Grant Hill, both wearing Velcro shoes.
Portland: Jerryd Bayless and the rights of Petteri Koponen.
Sacramento: Tyreke Evans and Donte Greene, or Sergio Rodriguez and Jason Thompson, or Jon Brockman and Spencer Hawes, or Omri Casspi and Kevin Martin, or Sean May and Sean May.
San Antonio: Tony Parker and Tim Duncan, just for the reminders of that boring Jazz roster in the original and Tournament Edition version of the game. Matt Bonner and DeJuan Blair for fun.
Toronto: Amir Johnson and DeMar DeRozan.
Utah: Kosta Koufos and Kyrylo Fesenko, of course.
Washington: Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
