NBA Jam Releases Complete Eastern Conference Team Rosters

As  I mentioned before, EA is going to revamp the legendary NBA JAM series. New players, better graphics, and hopefully same fun. You can get game either through wii straight up, or downloaded as additional content to NBA Elite for PS3 or Xbox 360. In any case, the Eastern rosters were released by ESPN.*

*=Yes some rosters are in accurate: Al Harrington and Courtney Lee are no longer with those teams.

Now a few thought on rosters. 1)The Miami Heat are the obvious cheese team. 2)How depressing is it that 4 teams have mascots as legends. 3)Shoutout to Knicks for have three legends. 4)How is Reggie Miller not a Pacer legend. Stein reports there maybe some issue with him not being involved w/Players association. Smh. 5)Stein points out astutely, No Zo’ in Miami? Or Tiny Tim Hardaway? 6)Allen Iverson is a legend, I dig it. 7) For a Buck legend, how about Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or would it be too crazy to suggest Sam Cassell?

And last but not least thought on the rosters… NO JORDAN ON THE BULLS!!!! Yea, he wasn’t in other version or other games but still. You have to make it happen this time around. O wait. Jordan is featured on NBA2k11 so he can’t be featured in both games. Womp womp womp.. O well. Can’t wait until West Rosters come out. It’ll be interesting to see who makes the Lakers cut as a legend, they have so many.

What do you guys think of rosters? Who would have you chosen to be an active player? Who would you chose to be legend on each team?
I’ll leave you with game preview

  • Rookies getting appearances? No Reggie Miller? Charles Barkley? Wheres Portland, and LA teams? Allen Iverson a Legend? Also a host of other low-budget salary cap placeholders in starting positions. Where Brandon Roy at? Stephen Curry? Monte Ellis? SMH at this list. We want Kobe.

  • These are "eastern" conference teams…. Please read title….
