You may have already seen commercials for NBA 09: The Inside, where you can literally take a player from the streets to the NBA Championship. Here, you can take a look at the in-depth franchise mode that is designed to cater to all you hardcore b-ball followers out there. Can you recreate the Celtics' magical ride through the season, all the way to the promised land? Or would you rather give another team of your choice a shot at the title? SCEA promises fans an experience like none other this year, even though there is bound to be stiff competition from EA's NBA Live 09 and 2K Sports' NBA 2K9. This just makes it harder for the basketball lovers; now they've got three choices before the regular season tips off!
