NBA JAM Elections, Week 1
The most important vote of your life.
by Brad Graham
It’s official, there’s an updated version of the (second) greatest arcade machine ever conceived (after Street Fighter II) 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.
Unlike NBA All Star Voting, this election benefits from the coolest cats being selected (over those who have simply earned their right to appear), so lets do our part and make sure that the JAM ethos of style of substance remains king.
First up for you consideration (and currently on the clock) are three Western Conference surprise packets: the Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder.
The players eligible for Sac-Town include: Kevin Martin, Tyreke Evans, Jason Thompson, Spencer Hawes, Beno Udrih and Andres Nocioni.
The Clips are running with Baron Davis, Blake Griffin, Al Thornton, Chris Kaman, Eric Gordon and Marcus Camby on their board.
Finally, the Hi-jacked Thunder feature Kevin Durant, Jeff Green, Russell Westbrook, Thabo Sefolosha, Nenad Krstic and James Harden.
You have to select three players, which isn’t too hard and shouldn’t take too long but if you wanna have your say, you better be quick because voting for these three rosters will close soon (at which point the next three will become available).
No, voting for Beno Udrih, Spencer Hawes and Andres Nocioni (instead of Tyreke Evans, Jason Thompson and Kevin Martin) isn’t acceptable. To help ensure this doesn’t happen log onto NBA-JAM.easports.com.
