The San Antonio/Houston game was on at the steak house last night. K mentioned Sean Elliott. So I said he hasn't played in years, and that he was on the original NBA Jam, along with David Robinson. (I think you know where this is going.) That started me thinking about the original NBA Jam arcade game. I decided to see how many of the original two-man teams I could name. Sure, I could look it up on the internet, but what fun would that be? I'm definitely not sure about all of these. Let me know if you can think of any, or have corrections. Perhaps we can eventually put the "nail in the coffin." Here's what I have thought of so far:
