EA Sports hosted a special event last night that celebrated the history of basketball and the videogames that simulate the sport, with a great collection of basketball artifacts never before seen. Hundreds gathered at the ‘Triple Double Lounge’ on 35th and 6th in Midtown, NYC to check out the one-of-a-kind event; some were floored by the autographed pair of Converses, while others might felt more in tune with the Sega Genesis and original NBA Live cartridges! Also debuting was NBA Elite ’11 and NBA Jam, two of the most celebrated and long-lived sports-sim franchises in the history of video games. The Triple Double Lounge is now open to the public with special guest appearances by Dwight Howard, Tyreke Evans, Dominque Wilkins, Roger Mason, Pete Rock, and more, so take a look at this in-depth event recap and be sure to check out the festivities for yourself.
