Wayback Wednesday: Kobe Bryant in NBA Video Games

Kobe Bryant's Final Game in NBA 2K16

Welcome to Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! This is a feature where we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content.

Kobe Bryant is set to play his final NBA game today, as the Los Angeles Lakers wrap up their 2016 season against the Utah Jazz. It marks the end of a long and successful career for one of the best players in the history of basketball, and the only player to suit up for the same NBA team for twenty seasons. Despite the fact that Kobe Bryant was often as reviled by NBA fans as much as he was loved, there’s been much nostalgia and celebration as his career has drawn to a close.

His long NBA career has meant that Kobe Bryant has appeared in numerous basketball video games over the past couple of decades. In fact, former teammate Shaquille O’Neal may be the only player with more official appearances in NBA titles, as he played nineteen years in the league himself, and has continued to be featured as a Legend following his retirement. So, as Kobe Bryant’s last NBA game looms, I thought I’d take a look back at his history in video games.

Kobe has of course appeared in every NBA title since he entered the NBA, but I’m just going to focus on some of the highlights here, kind of a glance back through the years. With that said, let’s take a look back…way back…

The Friday Five: 5 Best Basketball Game Cover Players

The Friday Five

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! This is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

In last week’s Friday Five, I talked about five players who suffered from the proverbial “cover curse” after gracing the covers of various basketball video games. It was definitely a fun topic to talk about, and I was reminded of one or two other “cursed” players in the comments section. If you can think of any other players who were hit by misfortune after appearing on the cover of a basketball game, be sure to check out last week’s article, and let me know.

I’m looking on the bright side this week, as I’m offering up a list of who I believe to be the best basketball video game cover players that we’ve had so far. I’ve made these picks according to a few factors: magnitude of stardom, their level of success around the time they appeared on the cover, and yes, there’s some personal bias in there as well. So, without any further ado, I present my choices for the five best basketball video game cover players!

The Tuesday Triple: My Three Best Mixes

JaoSming's Twitter Avatar

This is The Tuesday Triple, where I attempt to break down random topics into three points, and maybe an “and one” if I need it. Similar to the established Friday Five by Andrew, the topics will be related to basketball video games and their communities as a whole.

Before I start the very small countdown of my favorite mixes that I made, I want to remind new readers that I did a Tuesday Triple on MomentousCeltic’s Mixes. While my mixes are no where near as well done as MC’s, or any of the current mix making elite seen on YouTube, they still hold a lot of sentimental value to me. I actually underestimated how many mixes I have made over the years, and some of the favorites I had in mind for this article have aged terribly since I last watched them. Nevertheless, here are my three favorite basketball video game mixes that I made as of today.

Dumb Fact Monday: NCAA Stadiums in an NBA Game

Oakland University NBA 2K10

This is Dumb Fact Monday, serving up random facts about basketball video games that you may or may not find interesting.

One of my favorite things about getting the PC version of our yearly NBA games is to see what hidden or unused content got left on the game disc. Sometimes there is nothing useful, but NBA 2K10 provided the community with a bunch of hidden files that, along with the initial release of REDitor, kickstarted NBA 2K modding on PC. Hidden in the thousands of game files were a few college gyms that had no business showing up in the yearly NBA 2K game.
