I think the biggest nba/basketball related news to come out this week is the trailer for the new NBA2K13 game. It's all over the internetz, so you won't find it in this round up. Call me old, but I think the last nba related game I played and purchased was NBA Live 97. With the joystick (is that what they're still called?) getting more than 3 buttons and 1 directional, I had to give up my gaming life. Although, the basketball game for the Wii is pretty cool! I always beat my DD in the 3 pt shoot out! If I still had my old NES/Genesis, I'd still play Lakers vs. Celtics.

#Clippers Media Day is Sept 28 with training camp officially opening the following morning.
