The GOAT, Michael Jordan, is a pathological competitor who would rather rip your heart out than suffer the ignominy of defeat. I’ve had long conversations about whether he’s a sociopath, and many agree that he is. That’s why it’s not very surprising that on the day NBA 2K14 drops, MJ says in a promo video for the game that he could take LeBron James 1-on-1 if both were in their prime. Read More »
As the story goes, when Michael Jordan was deciding which sneaker company to sign with out of UNC, he was sure about one thing: It almost certainly would not be Nike. Jordan had a very high opinion of adidas, and he had played his entire college career in Converse – which endorsed guys like Magic, Bird and Dr. J.

It was June 11, 1997, and Bill Clinton was still the President of the United States; nobody had heard of Monica Lewinsky (that was still a year off).

On top of this, a slew of past All-Stars as well like Jeff Malone, Michael Adams, Juwan Howard, Chris Webber and Gilbert Arenas. Read More »
Earlier this week we were invited down to the 2K offices in New York City to demo the new NBA 2K14 game mode: “LeBron Path to Greatness.” It was eye-opening not just for the gameplay, which we’ve already revealed, but for the circumstances they’ve created as you progress through the next seven seasons of LeBron James‘ Hall of Fame career.
The NBA 2K Franchise has tried variations of this before with NBA 2K12‘s NBA’s Greatest mode and My Player mode, but the “LeBron Path To Greatness” mode will be even more intoxicating for a number of different reasons, not the least of which is the incredible player movement within the league to create the most iconic match-ups over the next seven seasons of James’ career.

Video games are supposed to be a virtual adaptation to the product we see on the court, especially in basketball. This being said, we all can think of players that pop into our heads that were virtually unstoppable in a video game. Those players that your friends considered cheating if you used… yeah, those guys. The teams that your friend (who never played before) used and almost beat you. Read More »
