    Legends and former standouts were once found in basketball video games as unlockables via cheat code or as worthwhile free agents worth considering in Dynasty Mode. In today's gaming landscape they have become a key part of Ultimate Team modes for numerous EA SPORTS games and are the rarest of the rare; the most prized possession possible in NBA Live Ultimate Team.

    Taking a look back at previous EA SPORTS basketball titles (NBA JAM and NBA JAM: On Fire Edition) shows that the company added many legends for NBA Live 14, but also that there were numerous that were not retained. Players may be dropped or not renewed for various reasons: cost, exclusivity with competitor NBA 2K (Ex: Michael Jordan), perceived lack of value for the player, et al. However with NBA Live 15 & NBA Live 16, many legends returned - along with some new ones. (Keep in mind that the NBA Live 16 legends will continue to be added & revealed throughout the year; 94 is not the final count.)

    Continue on to see the full list of legends included in recent EA SPORTS NBA titles and let us know what legends you would like to see added in the future. ...

    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. ...
