Great Sports Stars Who Never Made It to a Video Game

Playing with the Bloggie or even the camera on your cutting-edge smart phone can make you feel like a high roller. But have you ever wondered what life would be like as a celebrity with the chance to enjoy all the latest gadgets before everyone else?

At least you can pretend to be like a sports celebrity by playing one of the latest sports video games on the PlayStation or another console. You can be everyone from Michael Jordan to Mike Tyson.

These days, it seems like everyone has their own video game. But surprisingly, there are some great sports starts who have not gotten their own video game but should.

Oscar Robertson

It’s amazing that Mr. Triple Double has never been in a video game, considering he’s one of the best players in the NBA. Robertson is the only player in NBA history to average a triple double for a full season (in 1961-62). Imagine if you had that kind of talent on your virtual team! You’d easily win the game. Maybe that’s why he’s never been included?

J.R. Smith

J.R. Smith may have said that some of his shot selections are inspired by the NBA2K video game, but his moves have never been featured in a game. Smith has played for several teams in his relatively short career, so there are numerous options to include him in a game.

Mike Conley

Mike Conley has been one of the best point guards in NBA history, though the timing has always seemed to be bad for him to get the recognition he deserves. Some rising star always crashes through and steals the limelight — though he continues to deliver the same exceptional performance in every game.

Not every sports star can be Michael Jordan with his long list of video game titles to his credit, but can’t we find room for more of these stars in the dozens of sports video games that are out there?
