Blazers NBA Jam Roster Revealed


Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, hate video games…or have a life, you would know that NBA Jam will make it’s return to gamers this October. Over the past two weeks, over at ESPN.com, Marc Stein has been revealing the official rosters for the game. Today, the Western Conference rosters were revealed. It’s set to release on October 5th as a stand-alone for the Wii, and for you PS3 and XBox 360 owners…you have to buy ‘NBA Elite 11′ to experience the updated version of the classic game many of knew and loved. I’m a 2K guy so I’ll more than likely be skipping out, but I know a lot of people are juiced for this. For those interested, this is who will be representing the Blazers:

Players: Brandon Roy, LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Oden

Legend: Clyde Drexler

Not much of a shock there, with the three ‘stars’ of the franchise getting the nod. When I heard Drexler was going to be in the game, I thought it would be an injustice if he was put in as a member of the Rockets. Thank goodness that didn’t happen. I’m sure some people wanted to take control of Batum, let him fly around, block shots, get so on fire he could make some crème brulée and Nutella on everyone with dunks…but no dice. Back in the day, Drexler used to be unstoppable and anytime you can pair him and Roy is a good deal. It would just be weird to play with him without Terry Porter.

    ABSOLUTELY agree about Porter. While it would have been an absolutely bigger deal if Drexler wasn’t in the game, the loss of Porter is confounding. Surely they could have gotten him contractually? And if they couldn’t, subsequent versions of the original NBA Jam had Cliff Robinson and Rod Strickland – they would have made fine alternates. Or why not bring in the master of the overstatement – Bill Walton?

    As far as Drexler Rockets style, I can swear I saw a game play video some time ago that had Olajuwon and Drexler playing on the same team. Perhaps there will be a way to play that way as an unlock-able or something. Who knows. Whatever the case, I look forward to October 5th!
