As the 2011 NBA Playoff picture is getting clearer and the Los Angeles Lakers looking for a threepeat World Championship, EA Sports has announced that it will sit out yet another season of NBA video game basketball. The sports giant’s last game was NBA Live 10, which featured Orlando Magic “Superman” Dwight Howard on the cover. Electronic Arts abandoned that franchise name with its 2010 game, NBA ELITE 11, but canceled the title. The next simulation hoops game from EA will be hitting stores in fall 2012. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA All-Star Kevin Durant, who was on the cover of the never-released ELITE game, begs EA Sports to release his game in this exclusive video interview.
