NBA 2K11 Is Everyone Else's Sports Game of 2010

You know, Game Revolution works hard. We play hard too. It's just frustrating when some jocks over at 2K think they can walk all over us! Do they even know who they're messing with? Blake, tell 'em.

Alright, Blake is passed out, but it doesn't matter. Look, we already picked the best Sports Game of the Year. It was NBA Jam, duh. You look at NBA Jam with all of it's high flying dunks, shoving, and general foul-ery (new word, learn it!), and you try to tell us that it's not the best sports game of 2010.

There's just no convincing 2K Games who wrote us to let us know just how many awards NBA 2K11 has received. Take a look:
