Because basketball is the one major North American sport for which players don't wear any sort of headgear, the NBA has always featured some of the world's most recognizable athletes. As a result, NBA video games have often led the way when it comes to re-creating players' likenesses. Thanks to the power of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, video game characters are closer to the real thing than ever. But just how good are they? We've taken screenshots of 11 NBA All-Stars (and the unfortunate-looking Chris Kaman) from NBA Live, NBA 2K8, and NBA 08 to see how they compare to the real deal. The results may vary, but one thing's for sure-basketball video games have come a long way since the Atari 2600.
