In case you missed it… The (second) greatest arcade machine ever conceived (after Street Fighter II, for those keeping count) is heading to your place in 2010. NBA JAM will soon be unleashed on the Nintendo Wii, thanks to EA Sports, and the best part – we get to elect the NBA players who will appear on the game’s final rosters. Up for consideration (and currently on the clock) are the Milwaukee Bucks, the Charlotte Bobcats and the Indiana Pacers.

Players eligible for the Brewtown Bucks include:
C – Andrew Bogut
PF – Hakim Warrick
SF – Ersan Ilyasova
SG – Michael Redd
PG – Brandon Jennings
PG – Luke Ridnour

The Indiana crew will be running with:
PF – Troy Murphy
SF – Danny Granger
SF – Mike Dunleavy Jr
SG – Brandon Rush
SG – Dahntay Jones
PG – TJ Ford

While the Bobcats will feature:
C – Tyson Chandler
PF – Boris Diaw
SF – Gerald Wallace
SG– Stephen Jackson
PG – DJ Augustin
PG – Raymond Felton

You only have to select three players but if you wanna have your say, you better be quick because voting for these team’s closes in a few days… at which point the next three will become available. To vote, visit NBA-JAM.easports.com.
