NBA JAM Elections, Week 3

Nothing ‘new.’

by Brad GrahamNBA JAM

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 you consideration (and currently on the clock) are a trio of “new” franchise’s with the New York Knicks; New Jersey Nets and New Orleans Hornets on the board.

The players eligible for your New York Knicks include:

SF – Al Harrington
SF – Danilo Gallinari
PF – David Lee
SG – Wilson Chandler
SG – Nate Robinson
SG – Larry Hughes.
(Sadly, no Chris Duhon, sorry.)

The team from Garden State is running with:

PG – Devin Harris
C – Brook Lopez
PF – Yi Jianlian
SF – Chris Douglas-Roberts
PG – Rafer Alston
SG – Courtney Lee

While the Hornets feature:

PG – Chris Paul
PF – David West
SF – Peja Stojakovic
C – Emeka Okafor
SG – Devin Brown
SF – Marcus Thornton

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 on February 1… at which point the next three will become available. To vote, visit NBA-JAM.easports.com.

    I went with

    Knicks – N8T Rob, David Lee and Danilo Gallinari

    Nets – Devin Harris, Brook Lopez, Courtney Lee

    Hornets – CP3, D west and PEJA!

    Peja is perfect for Jam. Only shooting threes is acceptable.

    Peja?! I’m more about the quick guards and monster-jamming bigs. Then again, you gotta have the shooters… I’d be OK with Stojakovic.

  • I.DOt

    I would like to see Joe Johnson. Jamal Crawford, and Josh Smith for Atlanta.

  • LA Huey

    half those knicks may not even be on the team next season

    u said “sorry no chris duhon” ? why would any1 be sorry the dude is a scrub… he is playing his best ball now under the best coach he will ever have (the run and gun helps him ) and he still sucks.. he will be riding the bench next year and than its time to go over seas…

    and i wish they had the old kings on here i would go with Peja, C-Webb and Bibby… thats a winner right there…

    @Ryne – Peja makes the cut because New Orleans is void of quick guards and monster jamming bigs. That, and I still like to rock my Peja jersey when I go hoop…he was money for the kings. When he gets going (which is not very often these days) he doesn’t miss. HE’S ON FIRE! I actually thought the nets and Hornets were hard to choose for when it comes to JAM.

    co-sign d.j. as well.

    Emeka almost made it on my hornets picks but…D-West can do more than what he does offensively (Emekas defense isnt good enough to counter) and then I wouldn’t really have a 3-point shooter. CP3 drives and dishes, D-West has the midrange and Peja takes the arc. Not much athleticism but an awesome shooting team.

    I picked 100% what AlbertBarr picked. But -unlike the All Star votes- do our votes really count? Or are we stuck with a game featuring Yi and Lee as Nets players? Damn, I forgot to vote for Rafer Alston. An And-1 player should be a definite choice for NBA-Jam! Skip to my Lou!

    Laumol…I didnt choose Alston ’cause he is on the Heat now and probably would prefer not being immortalized as a member of the worst NBA team in history.
