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:

The Original NBA Jam
Atlanta - Dominique Wilkins, Steve Smith?
Boston - Dee Brown, Robert Parish
Charlotte - Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning
Chicago - Scottie Pippen, Horace Grant
Cleveland - Mark Price, Brad Daugherty
Dallas - Derek Harper, Jim Jackson
Denver - Dikembe Mutombo?,
Detroit - Bill Laimbeer, Joe Dumars?
Golden State - Chris Mullin, Tim Hardaway?
Houston - Hakeen Olajuwon, Robert Horry?
Indiana - Reggie Miller, Derrick McKey?
LA Clippers - Danny Manning, Ron Harper?
LA Lakers - James Worthy, Vlade Divac
Miami - Harold Miner?, Rony Seikaly?
Milwaukee - Glenn Robinson?, Vin Baker?
Minnesota - Tom Gugliotta?,
New Jersey - Derrick Coleman
New York - Patrick Ewing, John Starks?
Orlando - Nick Anderson,
Philadelphia - Clarence Weatherspoon?
Phoenix - Charles Barkley, Kevin Johnson
Portland - Clyde Drexler, Terry Porter
Sacramento - Mitch Richmond,
San Antonio - Sean Elliott, David Robinson
Seattle - Gary Payton, Shawn Kemp
Utah - John Stockton, Karl Malone
Washington - Harvey Grant?,

  1. ok... good lord man, flashing back to an arcade game from the 1990's? ... we gotta get you a woman. i'll go through my black book and set you up on a couple dates for Fri and Sat night.

    and oh yeah, don't forget: up up down down left right left right B A Start, gives you 30 lives on Contra, Super Contra, Gradius, but only 10 on LifeForce.

    also, on Super Mario Bros, if you hop on a turtle that is coming down a series of steps, and time it just right, you can make Mario constantly bounce off of it, and increase your number of men to like hundreds!


  2. I found him a women. He just might have to move to Oklahoma. She likes to run, doesn't drink or smoke and they have the same religion. Oh, and she played both basketball and tennis in high school. And she has strong moral values.

  3. Yeah! So take that, Java Boo Boo!

  4. I think Scott Skiles was on Orlando on NBA JAM.

  5. Believe me, he does better with sdrs as opposed to ldrs.

    Either he'd have to move to Ok, or the girl from Ok would have to move here.
