Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!, Ken Griffey Jr.’s Slugfest, Tiger Woods PGA Tour, and now Draymond Green’s Shut Up And Slam Jam Karate Basketball. Athletes have starred in sports video games for years. But no game has really captured the essence of its star athlete like this new game.
Draymond Green’s Shut Up And Slam Jam Karate Basketball is a retro style basketball game in the vein of NBA Jam. Like other basketball games, the goal is make baskets, but unlike other games punching your opponent plays a big part. If you’re not an NBA fan, Draymond Green is well known for hitting multiple players in the balls, and at times it seems like he’s trying to bring karate into the sport of basketball.
Green is joined by other notable nut punchers in the NBA, Matthew Dellavedova, Chris Paul, and Metta World Peace. But to be fair to Paul, I don’t think he’s hit anyone in the balls since his Wake Forest days.
