Released for arcades, Game Boy, Super Nintendo and Sega Consoles, NBA Jam was one of the most successful sports games to emerge in the early nineties. A fond memory of many childhoods, the basketball video game received glowing reviews, earning critical acclaim in the magazine circuit and beyond. Now, following decades of pop culture domination and nearly a quarter-century after its initial impact, fans are now being treated to look at how the game would unfold in the real world. Courtesy of Team Flight Brothers and Whistle Sports, a real life, flesh-and-blood recreation of the iconic NBA game has been cooked up. Considering the significance of the original NBA JAM, we’re sure similar scenarios have been thought of by many other sports and gaming enthusiasts. As you can see in the clip above, there are many screen-shaking, court-shattering dunks in the reality-based spin on NBA Jam too.
