Electronic Arts just announced that star basketball star Dwight Howard is the cover athlete for NBA Live 10.
If you don't know who Dwight Howard is, you should be ashamed of yourself, at least according to G4tv.com's intern, Meg. "He's superman!" Intern Meg insisted to me. "I think it's shameful that there are people at G4 who don't know who Dwight Howard is. Sports are part of popular culture, and everyone should know what's going on with popular culture. Whether or not you like his team, you should know he's a great athlete."
Thanks, Intern Meg. Personally, I didn't even know people still played basketball. But, just so no one will look upon you with great shame, here's some info about Dwight Howard:
- Three-time NBA All-Star
- Currently looking to lead the Magic franchise to their first NBA Championship
- No. 1 pick of the 2004 NBA Draft
- 2009 NBA Defensive Player of the Year
- An All-NBA First Team selection the last two seasons
- Actually wore a superhero cape at the 2008 NBA Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Hence the "Superman" moniker.
There. Now you have learned something about Dwight Howard and about NBA Live 10's cover, so you are no longer a source of vexation to Intern Meg.
The game comes out in October for the PSP, PS3 and 360, and features EA's "Dynamic DNA" thing that syncs your video game teams to what's happening to athletes and teams in the real world.
