Can't wait for the NBA season to start? Of course you can't, you're on this site for starters so you must be desperate to see some basketball action. And you're looking forward to Christmas Day in a matter which has not been felt since you were a little kid dying to rip open your wrapped presents.
One lucky Hot Hot Hoops visitor can at least have one early Christmas present that can help pass the time until the opening tipoff.
To celebrate the release of the first NBA 2K12 DLC expansion pack "Legends Showcase", out now on the Playstation Store and the XBOX Live, the good folks over at 2K Sports sent over a brand new PS3 copy of NBA 2K12 so you too can simulate what the Miami Heat could have looked like with a healthy Mike Miller out on the floor (it's amazing what they can do with video game technology these days....).
So what is "Legends Showcase"? 2K explains:
"Legends Showcase allows gamers to select from more than 300 of the NBA's all-time greatest players, including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Dr. J, and compete in authentic pick-up games from 1-on-1 up to 5-on-5. Legends Showcase also features mini-games, such as 21 and H-O-R-S-E, along with other new features like the 2-on-2 Teammate Challenge and 3-on-3 Era Challenge.
"Gamers can also unlock current NBA players to create unique match-ups between legends and current stars. Finally, for the ultimate challenge, gamers can bring their My Player into the mix and battle the legends of the NBA to see how they stack up against the best ever."
Now, how do you win that free shiny disc?
1) Follow us (if you haven't already) on Twitter over at @HotHotHoops
2) Like us on Facebook
3) On either medium, write down the name of the player who will be officially signed first with the Miami Heat once free agency begins on Friday, December 9th, 2011. Mario Chalmers or anyone else who played last season for the Miami Heat doesn't count.
4) If you're the only genius who picked the correct player, good for you. If there's more than one of you who are on the same page with the Heat front office, I'll pick the winner out of those who not only follow us on Twitter (and by us I mean ALL of our writers as well) but also "Like" us on Facebook.
Here's the trailer for "Legends Showcase" so you can see for yourself what's new:
