I heard EA is working on NBA Live 2010.

I think it's supposed to be released sometime this year.

How I WISH someone would port NBA Jam (the super nintendo version) to the Iphone. It would be perfect.
Joystick on the left to move your player, tap to pass, slide upward and release at the right time to shoot.
Oh and there would have to be a turbo/coloured shoes button

Yeah, NBA Jam (SNES) would be awesome. That sounds like a good control scheme too. Maybe a shoot button though, cuz i think having to swipe would get in the way of the game at times.

If i'm not mistaken, Midway made NBA Jam and they're now bankrupt and getting bought out by Warner Bros. or something. Maybe we could try to get them to port the game over to the iDevice somehow. You know it would cost them next to nothing to port it, and they'd make a bundle cuz you know it would sell. 

Streetball isn't bad, it's the closest thing to a full basketball simmer on the iPhone/iPod Touch. There's a Lite version, you might want to check that out.

hopefully we will get a good hockey game before basketball, since basketball is the worst and most boring sport in the world(besides golf, but golf is at least fun to play)
