EA Sports NBA Elite Goes Live…

Monday, September 27th, 2010


In a little over a week EA Sports will unleash its NBA licensed video game on the masses. They are calling this latest installation to their franchise NBA Elite. If the gamemakers at 2K Sports have been an inspiration to the people at Electronic Arts its in how they present this game to the public. With much fanfare and hoopla (do you see what I just did?) EA Sports launched NBA Elite to a crowd of the best tastemakers and influencers in New York City.

2K Sports also held their game’s launch party the same night but I couldn’t get inside their shindig. The dude’s running the list said they couldn’t find my name. So I was left to wait outside for some of the dignitaries to float thru that could help the 2K people respekanize my internets celebrity status.

In the meantime I asked some questions to the NBA players who were exiting the limousines in front of the club. I asked Derrick Rose if he wouldn’t mind Carmelo taking more shots than him if the Bulls traded for him. To his credit Derrick said he didn’t care. I told Rajon Rondo that there was a rumor about his avatar turning the ball over frequently in the 2K game. He sneered back at me. Lulz.

Sean Price was due to perform at the 2K Sports event and I wanted to stick around for dude to get me into the party but I was getting antsy. I knew that there was liquor flowing at the EA Sports soiree and some little chickadees from the ad game I know just left the 2K party to go to the EA one. That was the spark I needed to get to EA’s event. They took over what appeared to be a former bank space and filled it with all kinds of interactive stations from gaming consoles to webcasted video players. EA Sports had the proper circus atmosphere. All they needed was me – the clown.


I sucked down hor’s d’ovaries and vodka/grapefruit drinks like I was out of my mind. I was totally nice by 9pm and I still had to find something to do with myself for the next 2.5 hours before I would go in to tape the Combat Jack Radio Show. So I kept throwing back the vodka mixes, even after they had run out of Stoli I went in with the Svedka. Trays of shrimp cocktail danced around me with the shrimp so big you could ride them home.

The room was spinning more than a Tim Hardaway free throw but I hung tough. I mean, alcohol… Its. What. I. Do. The atmosphere felt like a high school reunion. 40 Diesel was in effect. Meka and LowKey. Clark Kent, Mos Def, Treach, 9th Wonder and J-Cole doing a mini-set. EA Sports doesn’t just know how to throw a party either. They kept the NBA Elite lounge open to the public all weekend. If I wasn’t nursing the massive migraine from opening night I might would have fell thru again to get a better look at the new Kevin Durant shoe EA Sports x Nike collabo.

So which game is better? EA Sports NBA Elite or NBA 2K11. Here’s my breakdown…

Sean P and I mostly agree on shit when it comes to kicks (other than New Balance). We both have hell’a Dunks and Air Max and not so much Jordan brand shit. So I was surprised the other day when P sent me an e-mail describing the latest shoes on his wish list along with the joints that were receiving his vaunted “Emphatically 14 15” designation.

For those of you keeping score at home, when Ruck says “14 15” he is speaking on the 14th and 15th letters in the alphabet. The N and O. Non Cipher for all of you cats who are still 5-percenters. Nyet for my dude Dmitry Vortman and any other Russian heads up here on DP dot com. An emphatic 14 15 means that he wouldn’t get pictured in that item. Think Ricky Rothchild rugbys and the what not.

The shoes that P is fuxing with are the Air Force 1 Foamposites.


I don’t typically fux with Forces at all. I can count all my pairs of Forces on one hand. The idea of a foam Force was executed better with the ‘Forceposite’ design. These Air Force 1 Foamposites look like Frankenstein boots.

The shoes getting the ‘Emphatic 14 15’ are the Air Jordan Alpha 1 Outdoors FTLOTG (For The Love Of The Game – for those of you keeping score at home). I’m mad now because I fux with these joints. The Air Jordan Alpha 1 is being slept on by the masses.

Alpha 1s

Props to

What do y’all Sneaker Fiends think? Are you fuxing with the Air Force 1 Foams? Are you shitting on the Air Jordan Alpha 1s? Is that powder blue colorway not the bomb. I’ma let y’all decide.

April 15th is the day most of us dread because we only think of it in terms of the statements we submit to the Internal Revenue Service, but April 15th should be an American holiday. Today is also the day that Jack Roosevelt Robinson played his first game as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Without this watershed moment in our country’s history we might still be using separate water fountains across the nation. It bears remembering that Jackie Robinson was as proactive off the field as he was on the diamond. He was an activist for equality in every walk of life and one of the greatest examples of the American ideal.

Let his memory make every April 15th a day to look forward to.
