On Saturday, the LA Clippers will celebrate the 25th anniversary year of the video game classic when they host the Sacramento Kings for NBA Jam Day. Fans will be eligible to receive an NBA Jam T-shirt with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, and someone could even win an original four-player arcade machine of NBA Jam.
Tim Kitzrow, the original voice of the game, will be heard throughout the Kings-Clippers contest -- during pregame introductions and timeouts, perhaps even voicing over Griffin's memorable dunk over Jazz center Rudy Gobert in October.
"I'm certainly fond of Blake and DeAndre," Kitzrow said. "I call them the Boomshakalaka Brothers. You know, they're just two of the best in the game for those crazy poster facials.
"And for my over-the-top superlatives, like 'You be the peanut butter, and I'll bring the JAM!,' 'I can't go to work without my donuts, you bring the coffee, and I'll bring the dunkin'! Boomshakalaka!' ... I mean, all of those things, for me, I couldn't have written a better script of me working with a team that's in a great market, that's got these great power dunkers.
