Several NBA basketball players came out including Kevin Garnett. It was definitely an honor to meet the Great Garnett without a doubt. He’s real and official just like he performs on the court. Garnett also took the stage and spoke about his involvement in NBA 2K9's creation. Other notable guests included: Andrew Iguodala (Philadelphia 76ers), Rajon Rondo (Boston Celtics), Danilo Gallinari (NY Knicks), and 2008’s world fastest man, Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt!
On the live performance side of things, The Cool Kids and DJ Unk entertained the crowd with exclusive songs that appear on the NBA 2K9 soundtrack. I must admit, The Cool Kids impressed me. They definitely had the audience in tune with their set. DJ Unk sparked it in his own way with that southern swag.
NBA 2K9 tournaments and competitions took place throughout the night as those in attendance were eager to get their shot at the game. I know I was, and I have to say, the graphics and features were next level. Thanks to 2K Sports for inviting us out; they not only make great games, they throw great parties.
