• A New NBA JAM on the way? [Updated: Nope]

    Wednesday morning, the (unverified) EA SPORTS NBA JAM Twitter account asked followers to "Retweet if youíre ready for a new NBA JAM!"

    The account had been inactive since April 18, 2012 until a handful of random tweets on February 9 and 10. Those tweets mentioned Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Damian Lillard, as well as the NBA, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Los Angeles Clippers, and Bleacher Report. (It is worth noting that that Griffin, Durant, and James are all former/current NBA 2K cover athletes.)

    EA SPORTS released NBA JAM in fall 2010 and NBA JAM: On Fire Edition in October 2011. A third iteration of the game would not be surprising given a playtest session at EA Canada last April and following a roster update for the Android version of NBA JAM in late January.

    UPDATE: Per Operation Sports, a statement from EA SPORTS: Yesterday, there was unauthorized use of the @nbajam Twitter handle. We do not have any announcements to make about NBA JAM at this time.

      Got the last one free from + and it was o.k. but just didn't have that same "fun factor" as the original did back in the day. Online play was awful b/c of the lag and the CPU mode was just a grind.
