NBA2K8.jpg

This NBA season has turned out to be one of the best since the golden age of hoops when the likes of Jordan, Magic and Bird were tearing up the hardwood. Well, the Eastern conference isn’t all that exciting, but out West the race for the playoffs is insane. Of course, this season has also been one in which a bunch of big name All-Star players have changed unis, and to reflect the drastic league-wide player movement 2K Sports has released a free Xbox Live and PSN update for NBA 2K8 that brings all the team rosters up to date. Now you can dominate the paint with Shaq as a Phoenix Sun, dish out dimes as Jason Kidd back where his career started as a Dallas Maverick, tag-team with Kobe as new Laker Pau Gasol, or see what the dynamic duo of Shawn Marion and Dwayne Wade could be like next season in Miami (when Wade hopefully isn’t injured and the Heat hopefully don’t completely suck like they do now). Hit the jump to see the complete roster update list.
