Tony Parker: NBA Covergirl...

This isn't exactly breaking news, but seeing as how I don't know how many of you PtR guys are gamers, I felt like I might as well be the one to announce that our very own Tony Parker has been selected as the cover athlete for EA Sports' NBA Live '09. EA is doing a global thing this year, implementing more FIBA teams, and thus, are looking to add a decidedly more international flair to their game. International stars will be featured on the covers in their respective country (Gasol for Spain, Bargnani for Italy, etc.) but TP will be the cover star for the US and French versions of the game.

Though this is awesome news for Spurs fans, anybody who plays basketball games knows that the real game is the NBA 2K series. The universally better reviewed game has decided to go with Kevin Garnett as their cover star. The only thing I have to say about this is that at least Chris Paul isn't on it again. Given my choice of annoying superstars, I'd take KG over Paul anyday, with maniacal swearing edging out extreme bitchiality any day of the week.

Both games are set to drop in October, and I have to say I'm excited that 2K9 is even coming out this year. EA has been trying to buy out Take 2 (parent company for 2K9 developers), and i would've been pissed if they forced us to play Live like they forced us to play Madden...

Game on...
