This can't be true, but Slam and Fanhouse are reporting it to be the case. Bill Simmons was at EA recently to put one of those black spandex suits with the day glow colored balls on it.
After lunch, everyone moved over to EA's motion capture facility (where they've got an autographed Chris Kaman sneaker on display) and the players-and Bill Simmons, who apparently will be in the game-all squeezed their way into their spandex suits and got ready to have their movements put into the game.Uhhh....hmm. Yeah. Please let him be an analyst in the game. Please God. Please.
