"Superman" To Grace Cover Of EA's NBA Live 10

By winning the crucial Game 3, the Orlando Magic have made a series of it with the Los Angeles Lakers. Although NBA fans didn't get the Clash of the Titans - Kobe vs. LeBron - when Orlando bounced Cleveland from the playoffs, it's still a lot of fun to watch Kobe vs. Superman.

Hence, it makes perfect sense that the two continue their battle off the court. It has already been revealed that Kobe Bryant will grace the cover of NBA 2K10 this year, and as the perfect flip-side, EA has revealed that Dwight Howard will be the cover man for NBA Live 10. According to GameSpot, EA made the confirmation and added that different regional athletes will be on the cover for France, Germany, Spain, and Italy. Howard has been a three-time All-Star in the league since being drafted #1 back in 2004, but he really only snagged superstar status during this recent Magic run. Of course, if you remember the Beijing Olympics last year, he was a major part of the team that re-captured the Gold Medal for the United States. In the virtual world, you're gonna have to pick between Kobe and Dwight; considering the strides both dev teams have made in the past, it may be a difficult decision. As for the Finals, Superman will have to do his best Wade impression if Orlando is going to steal this one from LA.

So which are you gonna pick? It's always a classic battle, although 2K has won more often than not in years past.

I went with NBA Live 09 but heard so many rave reviews from fans that I may have to seriously consider 2K10. Not just because the Lakers are going to win the series, though. I want a quality game and basketball rules.

Go Lakers!

Ill be picking up 2k10, main reason being I find the gameplay to be smoother in 2k. The Lakers will win this series in 6. 2K seems to own the basketball market, while EA owns the hockey market.

Still don't get the whole "superman" thing. That dunk of his was never really a dunk, he threw the ball into the rim as he was coming up short. Dude has way more reach and height than Jordan and the Dr. and still couldn't make it.

It was a reference that his teammates made to him throughout the season because he's always jumping. The name just stuck.

I don't think you understood the "dunk". It's a lot harder to do what he did than to actually dunk it.

I think it was something like him being such a super freak of a specimen that he didn't even have to dunk it. He got up so high above the rim from so far that he just had to throw it in.

On the first try!

He didn't throw it down, he threw it forward.

Also his jumping should of resulted in a nickname like Tigger.

And your point being?

Okay, do this.

Depending on how tall you are, lower a basketball rim to whatever size you need it to be so you can dunk it. Not too low, not too high.

Jump from the furthest spot you can dunk it from. Now try doing that and throwing it in the hoop like D. Howard did.

On the first try.

Stop hating on the man.

Make it go in the rim as smooth as D. Howard did. Now multiply what you did by 30X and that's the difficulty level of what D. Howard did.

I don't think you understand what it takes to do what he did.

stickemup,

He was attempting a dunk, he came up short so he threw the ball in. It was a MISSED dunk. How on earth can you applaud someone for missing a dunk but being able to throw the ball in? I've see plenty of people do exactly what he did in College dunk contests. Those people get less than 7's, he gets a 10.

I'm not a DH hater, I like Orlando and I hope he wins a title so Shaq will shut up. However he is no Mike or Dr. and his throwing a ball into the hoop does not make a great dunk. It's simply a layup.

Stop by any community college in your area. Grab a snickers from the vending machine, sit on the bleachers and watch the DH "jam" over and over.

You do realize that not only is he considered innocent but the case was never even brought to trial. I don't like Kobe but I'm not going to falsely accuse him.

Um actually OJ went to trial thus the prosecutors thought there was at least enough evidence to bring the case to trial. With Kobe the prosecutes found insufficient evidence so the case was never even brought before a judge or jury. So you're incorrect, very few similarities if any.

I am glad Orlando won that game,I really want the Lakers to win the championship in their own court it would feel(will feel)sweeter.As for the games I probably won't pick up neither unless they made significant changes to either.

I hope the Lakers lose. So Shaq can shut his stupid mouth about D. Howard.

The only reason Shaq wants the Lakers to win is because he doesn't wanna see another young center win a championship so early in his career. And because he wants to go back to LA.

Yeah Shaq is jealous,D. Howard is a beast and could probably play circles around shaq right now; I don't ever remember ever acting so childish but any way he needs to stop it and give D. Howard cred; btw Lakers4life;D.

Hey Arnold or Ben, did you guys catch the latest headers with GT5 vs. Forza 3 on CNET?! Apparently, Turn 10 tried to bribe their own people. Haha.

Funny that DH could have won the game but missed TWO crucial free throws to end regulation.
