Sony Drafts Gamers For the NBA Life

Published on .

PS2 "Don't Be The Next"
Every basketball fan wants to play in the NBA. None of them want to end up as the next rookie-turned-reject. To help you avoid that fate, Sony put together a website at dontbethenext.com to promote their newest PS2 title, NBA '06 featuring The Life, Vol. 1. The site gives you an inside look at the unspectacular careers of three (fake) former players who failed to live the NBA life. In addition to bios, stats and video testimonials from NBA superstar Amare Stoudemire and coach P.J. Carlisimo, hilarious extras include defensive tips from Billy Joe Cuthbert, a rap CD from Jason "Sweet Money" McDaniels and trash-talking translations from Sergei Vogavich.
