NBA2K10, which was released October 6 in the US, arrived at Philippine stores today, and they’re selling like hotcakes. I was glad I was able to grab a copy from Datablitz in Rockwell.

I was too excited I probably won’t be able to sleep tonight (LOL). A new game from my favorite series, there are a lot of adjustments to make. Hopefully, they’d be all for the better enjoyment of the game. Continue reading

The NBA2K10 is Coming October 6, 2009

The latest, the most exciting and the best simulated basketball video game is coming soon. The official release date is slated October 6, 2009, although I’m not sure of the actual date that it will actually hit the video game stores in the country (Philippines).

In case you’re not aware as of yet, last season’s MVP, Kobe Bryant, will grace the cover of this year’s installment of the game. Check out the video trailer below:

I just wish that versions should be available for standard TV just like mine (NTSC format). Continue reading

Poll Result: Who's the Greatest Player to Ever Play Basketball

[adsense]

Our survey, which arose from the heated discussion in Mon’s post, “Michael Jordan: The Greatness of his Airness, came to a close today after running for exactly one month. 52 respondents cast their votes, and here are the results:

  • Michael Jordan – 33 votes – 63%
  • Kobe Bryant – 6 votes – 12%
  • Deuts Ambuscade – 5 votes – 10%
  • Lebron James – 3 votes – 6%
  • Oscar Robertson – 2 votes – 4%
  • Magic Johnson – 1 vote – 2%
  • Larry Bird – 1 vote – 2%
  • Others – Manu Ginobili – 1 vote – 2%

So here it appears Michael Jordan is the clear winner. Of course we haven’t obtained the demographics of the respondents. So we really can’t tell whether MJ is still popular especially to the younger generations who haven’t yet seen him play. Continue reading

The 'Hangtime' Move by Deuts Ambuscade

Deuts Ambuscade is Brewing Coffee in the Air.

Wearing jersey no. 8, Deuts Ambuscade of the San Antonio Spurs gets past three defenders in this impressive move to the basket.

Okay, not to confuse with the real life NBA, this was just a clip from my favorite Playstation 3 game, the NBA 2k9. Deuts Ambuscade was a created player of mine and a superstar playing for the San Antonio Spurs.

Michael Jordan: The Greatness of his Airness

guest-post-iconThis is a guest post from Raymond.

Below is the text of the same exact email I sent to airjudden. In his/her website, he extensively chronicled points as to why Michael Jordan (MJ) can’t be considered the greatest ever. He shares valuable points and insights to justify his claims. In fact, I think he really wants it to be so encompassing in the guise of highlighting other ballers’ accomplishment but it’s really just so that other not-so-vital tidbits may be included to shatter MJ’s greatness.

The thing is, he obviously shies away from one very significant factor as to why people regard MJ as the best ever – how he has consistently managed to raise his game when it matters the most – on the biggest basketball stage – The NBA Playoffs. Like him, I challenge anyone who can name me a baller who has managed to elevate his game more as the playoffs progresses all the way to the Finals.

There was only one man that could stop Michael Jordan, and that was Michael Jordan

There was only one man that could stop Michael Jordan, and that was Michael Jordan

Accordingly, he ranks four men ahead of MJ as greatest ever. So, one by one, I tried to prove otherwise and establish MJ as the greatest PER my criteria. A criteria, that I think, differentiates greatness from mere talent, luck and biological advantages. Continue reading

NBA 2K9 for PC; NBA Live 09 is Not

[adsense]

UPDATE: I DON’T MAKE COPIES OF THIS GAME. I’M NOT AUTHORIZED AND I DON’T HAVE THE DVD WITH ME ANYMORE. GET YOURSELF A COPY FROM YOUR FAVORITE BOOTLEG STORES LIKE IN MAKATI SQUARE OR IN QUIAPO. IF YOU ARE TOO LAZY TO GET YOUR ASS TO YOUR FAVORITE BOOTLEG STORE, THEN BETTER GET LOST!

NBA 2K9 is now available for PC. EA’s NBA Live 09 isn’t anymore.

I’m not sure about the marketing strategies of these two competing NBA video game products.

But I’m quite surprised with the move of the NBA Live Series, the game that I’ve learned to love, and I’ve learned to hate as well.

Celtics and Lakers, Reliving the Rivalry

I initially wagered for a Celtics-Spurs NBA Finals. But unfortunately the other day, the Lakers beat the Spurs to advance to the 2008 NBA Finals. Eventually, my reason for looking forward to an exciting NBA Finals started to dwindle.

Celtics vs. Lakers

But today I realized the Finals won’t be that boring after all. On the contrary, this could be the most interesting NBA Finals since the turn of the century as the Boston Celtics and the LA Lakers relive their rivalry over the hardcourt.

The Celtics Up for the Challenge?

At the rate at which the current Boston Celtics is going (29-3, or 90.6% winning percentage), it is very much likely that it will beat Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls record of 72-10 (72 wins and 10 losses, 87.8% winning percentage) in 95-96 season.

Boston Celtics

Let’s start out a discussion. Have the Celtics been that good with their three superstars in the person of Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett?

How would you compare the Allen-Pierce-Garnett trio vs. Jordan-Pippen-Rodman(?)? Can the Boston Celtics live up to the fans’ expectations? If ever the Celtics could pull down the Bulls’ record, can they be able to successfully snatch the crown from powerhouse Spurs?

Let’s also compare individual stats:
