The battle between EA's NBA Live and 2K's NBA 2K franchises is gonna heat up this generation, and here's a look at the latter: this is actual gameplay of the slam dunk contest in the game, and it's lookin' awfully flashy. As one of the staples of the NBA, this traditional contest is loaded with high-flying artistry coupled with rim-rattling jams. 2K Sports is looking to bring this artistry home in October, so if you're a fan, you gotta check out NBA 2K8. The only question is, can EA live up to the challenge and equal 2K's effort...?
