I don't care about who is on the cover, you know Live in other countries have different players on them, like in France, they have TP and Diaw.

Arenas on it, perhaps we can actually have a 100% injury-free season for once. That's been our #1 killer for years.

Haha, he doesn't even like Live.

carter grant, New York: Do you play nba live 2006

Gilbert Arenas: No. I play NBA2K. It's real, the NBA2K. The other one, now...it's too fake.

That was from one of those NBA.com Q&A things where players answer chat questions or emails or whatever.

If I was 2k though, I would look to sign Nash at this point. It'd be a way to play up the fact that Live is an arcadey superstar oriented game, and 2k is a realistic sim. A pass-first point guard is a good symbol for a sim game. Duncan would be another great way to convey that, but he'd probably sell fewer copies.


That's exactly it. A buddy of mine worked on that game with EA and told me that they offered Bron $15,000 for the cover and Bron wanted $30,000. They gave the cover to Wade instead. Of course this was a couple of years ago.

Knowing Arenas, he probably sabotaged Bron's negotiations with EA by sneaking into Bron's house and uplugging his alarm clock the day prior to the deal.

Then the next day, he "conveniently" bumped into EA's CEO.

I'm glad it isn't Bron. No EA curse for us (though, I don't think it really applies to NBA Live as much as Madden).

Every year? You mean last year? One year? Maybe you haven't noticed but he's not playing this series. He's 1/2 for 50 point game predictions. Not bad considering 90% of the NBA couldn't put up a 50 point game, prediction or not.

Good for Gil but I really wish he was on 2K's cover. Much better game and one of my favorite players. I've had to deal with Shaq's ugly mug on the cover the past 2 years.

WTF are those figures supposed to mean? $15 million? $1.5 million? I don't get it. Obviously they didn't offer a guy who makes $30 million per year $15,000 like you typed.

Dirk and Nash don't get the cover mainly because they're international players, and in the U.S., EA Sports is marketing it in the country. EA Sports' NBA Live version is supposedly Canadian so I can see Nash perhaps getting it, but not Dirk.

EA Live series has become a joke. NBA 2K is waaaaaaaaaaaaay better. It's not even close anymore.

Default Re: Arenas over Bron for Live Cover...

this is the greatest thing to happen. no player in the NBA represents NBA Live better than Gilbert and he doesn't even try. the completely inappropriate three pointers that always go in? no conscience on the jumper? no shot exists between layup and three?

watching Gilbert Arenas is in itself arcade-like. he plays like he's playing a video game. there couldn't be a more appropriate cover guy.

that said, 10 bucks says Arenas either begged or bribed someone for this.

Arenas should not be on the cover. I don't know if Lebron needs to be, but there are plenty of other guys I'd rather see. How about Bosh, or Dirk, or CP3, or Dwight Howard, Amare, I'd even rather see Baron Davis then Arenas, he's kind of an *ss
