In The Shadow Of A Giant

Sam Bowie will forever be known as the player drafted above Michael Jordan, and also one of the biggest bust. Sam was the logical pick for Portland no doubt, I mean they did draft a guard the previous year (Hall of Famer Clyde Drexler). Bowie averaged 10.5 ppg with the Trail Blazers but was injury prone so they traded him to New Jersey. In the shadow of the greatest NBA player of all time is there really anything that Sam could have done to shed more light onto himself??? Sadly I think not, it will go down as one of Portland’s biggest mistakes not drafting Jordan and we all remember when Jordan showed them why with his outstanding performance in the 1992 NBA Finals. 20042425_0c40bf9504mj_air_jordan_i

NBA 2K9

I have been playing basketball games since I can remember. I came up loving EA Sports and the NBA Live Series until I discovered NBA 2K on the Sega Dreamcast and switched over. NBA 2K9 keeps the tradition alive of a “true basketball” game, I’m not a big online cat im more about building my franchise. If you wanna run and gun and play with friends and not take shit too serious go pick up live, if you about ya biz and want an authentic sports title get 2K. Presentation to me is a must and to this day the best presentation I seen in a game is from 2K in “ESPN NFL 2K5”. NBA 2K9 does a damn good job keeping close though, at the end of every quarter you are treated to highlights of the top moments in the prior quarter. The music during these highlights is nothing short of epic sometimes I forget and think im watching TNT! That’s how captivating it is! The game play is stellar, the shot stick has been redefined and the overall feel is fluid. The game is seamless, meaning that you rarely have to press start to do shit, you can make subs, timeouts and etc all on the fly. Association 2.0 is where it’s at; this is the meat and potatoes. The new NBA.COM feature keeps you up to date with stats, injuries, milestones, awards, rumor mill etc. I think this feature is incredible now you don’t have to go through multiple screens to find info on teams or what happening in ya association cause its right in front of u now. When I created my player and started with the Knicks it felt more intimate than ever before, players talk to the press, discuss there delight or bitterness, shits crazy. I really can’t say enough about this game if you a true ball head give this game a chance fo real.
