It's Josh Smith here, what makes you think it's an under the leg dunk? I'd bet on Jmoove dribbling down the court out of control and getting ready to turn it over.

Smith is a stud, but he's not really well known, so I don't see it being good choice for the cover, I thought EA could've got anyone they want? they should've went for Lebron or Dwight, it doesn't really matter though, 2k > Live.

You gotta be sh*tting me....LIVE > 2K ....2k may have the graphics but the gameplay is straight boo boo, as well as the controls, the only great thing about 2K is, if you have a big man down low, he has a 85% chance of swatting any and everything near the basket, dunks included. But for the best gameplay and most accurate conception of NBA Basketball...it's gotta be LIVE

hey guys that is for sure a photoshop. Believe me, i work for EA sports. Only here for ISH i will show you guys the real cover were using once the finals are over. This one is sure to get sales just based on the cover alone. We wanted to put a player on the cover whos skill level is equivilent to the quality of game we put out. without further ado, our nba live 2009 cover:

Josh Smith

is that true?


I bet any kind of money the "casual fan" dont know who Josh Smith is.....so why put him on the cover of Live ??

I like Josh as a player...but hes not someone that you want to put on a cover of a video game.....

here are some names I would put on the cover:

Roy (he should of been on the over this year!)
Daren Williams
Kobe (I think hes never been on a cover)
Lebron
Nash
Iggy

Mello made the cover in 04 but did not make it to the All-star game

Who cares, this is THE worst baskteball franchise in history. Any true hooper will tell you this Live series is a complete laughing stock in the industry. Just like they renamed the Fight Night series, Live should just do away with the "Live" monicker and just rebuild from 100% complete scratch. It's obvious those programmers have no clue how to even program something that begins to resemble a simulation of the human game on Earth known as Baskteball.

Nice. It seems right that the ball apparently just goes flat in Kwame's hands.

Fixed...

If there´s ONE single thing we all can agree on here on ish, it´s that 2k destroys Live.
