Growing up, I always wanted to play as Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, and now, 2k Sports has given us the opportunity to engage in that childhood fantasy. No lie, the graphics are crisp, and this game is a must grab when it is released.

NEW YORK, Jul 22, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — 2K Sports today revealed The Jordan Challenge, a new game mode for the latest iteration of the top rated and top selling basketball simulation franchise*, NBA(R) 2K11. This new mode will allow players to relive 10 different legendary games from Michael Jordan’s illustrious career and challenge them to replicate what he did on the court in NBA 2K11.

“Fans of the series are going to be thrilled to know that in NBA 2K11 Michael Jordan is much, much more than just a cover athlete,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “We’re excited to start talking about the ways that Michael will be used in the game and there’s still a lot more to come.”

While playing The Jordan Challenge, fans can try to stun the world in Jordan’s self-described greatest game by torching the Cavaliers by 69 points in March of 1990; attempt to battle back from the flu to defeat the Jazz in Game 6 of the 1997 finals; or leave the world wanting more as they relive one of Jordan’s finest performances during his last game as a Chicago Bull on June 14, 1998. In addition to The Jordan Challenge mode, gamers will have the unique opportunity to play as some of the greatest teams in NBA history, including the ’85-’86, ’89-’90, ’90-’91, ’94-’95, ’95-’96, ’96-’97, and ’97-’98 Chicago Bulls.

NBA 2K11 is not yet rated by the ESRB and will be available October 5, 2010.

Video: Lebron James Joins the Miami heat

Looks like Lebron James has finally picked a team to play for, leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to join Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh with the Miami Heat. Though I can’t say that the Heat won’t do well this upcoming year with Wade, Bosh and James helming the team, I can say that the Lakers are still the team to beat, and I can say that Lebron is still not Kobe.

LeBron James put the NBA on notice Thursday night, joining Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.

Ending weeks of will-he-or-won’t-he speculation, the two-time MVP said Thursday night that he’s decided to join the Heat and leave the Cavaliers after an unsuccessful seven-year quest for the ring he covets.

“I can’t say it was always in my plans, because I never thought it was possible,” James said on a made-for-LeBron live show on ESPN. “But the things that the Miami Heat franchise have done, to free up cap space and be able to put themselves in a position this summer to have all three of us, it was hard to turn down. Those are two great players, two of the greatest players that we have in this game today.” – ESPN

Can we have an early prediction that it will be the Lakers and the Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals? No matter what, I ride with the Lakers, so bring it on Miami.

Sidebar: Is it safe to say that Jay-Z and Lebron’s friendship has been effected for the worse? I am kidding of course.

Hit the break to see one fan’s reaction to the recent news.
