The game has some good qualities There are a few positive things about NBA 2K14 for iOS, and before I get to the negatives, I'll talk about them here. One is the overall … Read more
NBA Jam is an updated and faithful recreation of probably the most popular standup arcade basketball game of all time. For those who never went through several dollars in quarters at the local arcade playing this fun classic many years ago, NBA Jam is not your standard five-on-five simulation you see on consoles. This game is all about two-vs.-two high-flying dunk basketball, where just about every play is worthy of a highlight reel.

Somehow I find it hard to believe that LeBron James needed a "decision engine" to make The Decision.
Nonetheless, Microsoft's Bing has graciously offered its sponsorship of what is easily the most ridiculous combination of hype and entertainment since Geraldo Rivera found two liquor bottles in a downtown Chicago hotel: the one-hour prime-time television spectacle that is scheduled to air Thursday evening on ESPN chronicling "The Decision," when James will announce which National Basketball Association team he'll allow to pay him hundreds of millions of dollars over the next several years. Bing is also … Read more

While no one believed that Tiger Woods would ever have allowed even his Secret Service doppelganger to actually own a Buick, there was at least some reason to conjecture that a LeBron James … Read more
I haven't watched more than two minutes of NBA basketball--playoffs not included--since Michael Jordan retired (that'd be the second of his three retirements, in 1998). Then I got a HDTV last year and suddenly found myself tuning in for entire halves of meaningless regular season games--three-quarters of the game if Steve Nash was involved.
If you're hooked on high-definition professional basketball, there's another way to catch all the action without upgrading your TV or cable box. Throw a $99 tuner/antenna kit in your laptop bag and you can watch over-the-air HDTV no matter where you … Read more
