Turning Rookies Into Pros: Part I (VIDEO)

NBA Baller Beats and SLAM set out to transform your handles.

We introduced you to NBA Baller Beats last month—you know, basketball meets Guitar Hero. Baller Beats is the first video game of its kind—a full body motion-based participative basketball video game that lets you perform like a pro using a real basketball. Now, we’re putting the game to the test, with the NBA Baller Beats SLAM Transformation Project. In the video above, you’ll see Part I of what hopefully is a transformation from Rookie to Pro for one lucky gamer, who is getting his chance to get off the couch and get on the virtual court to improve his ballhandling skills. The NBA Baller Beats and Spalding ball bundle will be available for the suggested retail price of $59.99 when it launches exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360 September 11th.

    Looking up when your dribbling is huge. Can see why this could help with that. Cool concept. Free ball is dope too.

    However this would be stupid if someone was actually trying to improve their skills. If you are get a rim, get a ball, and get your a$$ outside

    I can see why this help… But you would be better off doing just reading up or asking someone good at your gym or park to help you with your game. I know that’s what I did when I was sixteen.
    Heck, you can even watch videos online for free now.
