In just another sign that basketball season is on the horizon, NBA2K11 is hitting stores in just three weeks, causing it’s advertising campaign featuring Rajon Rondo to be in full swing. And believe it or not, the one minute commercial featuring Rondo along with Josh Smith and former ex-USA teammates Russell Westbrook, Derrick Rose, and Andre Iguodala….well it’s actually pretty funny.
Funny lines aside, it’s too bad Rondo kind of got the shaft here, being stuck outside for this minute spot with just a couple lines. Overlooked again for the likes of Russell Westbrook and Derrick Rose twice in one summer.
The truth is though, this is really just an excuse to point how just how amazing that Michael Jordan reenactment mode looks like in the game. Flu game? 55 in MSG after his return from retirement? Yes, please.
I’ll even get a kick out of putting up 63 against the C’s back at the Old Garden with the knowledge that the Larry Legend and company pulled out that win anyway and swept the series. October 5th is the release date people, but I have to know, C’s allegiance aside, am I the only one psyched to play this mode?
