Electronic Arts has signed versatile Timberwolves' forward Kevin Garnett as the spokesman for its upcoming NBA Live 2001. This latest game in the NBA Live series will be released for the PlayStation, the PlayStation 2, the Game Boy Color, and PC platforms. There are several new features in the game, including new player reactions, an upgraded franchise mode, new NBA challenges in which players earn points to gain awards, and a new soundtrack featuring the theme song by Montell Jordan.
"I am really excited to be in with EA Sports and NBA Live 2001 because I like to be associated with the best," said Garnett. "I had a great time doing motion capture in Vancouver and enjoyed sitting down with the development team to give them my thoughts and ideas about the game. I think Live 2001 is going to be the most realistic hoops game ever."
