Dwight Howard has proven he is an excellent player. He is always willing to learn and his “ultimate dream” is to achieve what some players have already accomplished: to be the best of the best – to win the NBA Championship. He has proven got the talent (best defensive player, Slam Dunk contest winner). EA has noticed that as well. His fans will be very proud of him when they get to see him in the cover of EA Sports NBA Live 10 coming this October. Now I wish to play as Howard wearing his Superman cape in the videogame.
I just wish EA were to be a bit more on the fun side of things. They could do some of the things Midway did with NBA Jam in the early 90s. Imagine seeing Obama and Howard or Michelle and Hillary play one-on-one. If you don’t remember, former president Bill Clinton and current US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were characters in one of the versions of the Midway basketball game. Though I guess EA won’t do it, it would be very cool if they do.
Dwight Howard ha comprobado que es un excelente jugador. Siempre quiere aprender y su “sueño culminante” es el de lograr lo que unos jugadores ya han logrado: ser el mejor de los mejores – ganar el campeonato de la NBA. El ha comprobado que tiene el talento (mejor jugador defensivo y ganador del concurso Slam Dunk). RA se ha dado cuenta también. Sus aficionados estarán orgullosos de él cuando lo logren ver en la carátula de EA Sports NBA Live 10 a partir de octubre. Ahora quisiera jugar como Howard vistiendo su capa de Superman en el videojuego.
Solo quisiera que EA esté un poco más en el lado divertido de las cosas. Ellos podrían hacer algunas cosas que Midway hizo con NBA Jam a comienzos de los 90. Imagínense ver a Obama y Howard o a Michelle y Hillary uno contra uno. Si no recuerdan, el presidente anterior Bill Clinton y la actual secretaria del estado estadounidense Hillary Clinton fueron personajes en una de las versiones del juego de básquetbol de Midway. Aunque creo que EA no lo hará, sería bien chévere si lo hacen.
