NBA Live 2008 is a basketball simulation game from EA Sports that puts you in the middle of the action, playing as your favourite team attempting to reach the NBA Finals. While the game features all of the NBA's players from 2007-2008, it does not include legendary hall-of-famer Michael Jordan, who retired after the 2003 season. However, diehard fans who wish to play as the great Jordan on the PC version of the game can download a patch that inserts him into the game.
