When Mark Turmell - the lead designer and programmer on the original NBA Jam - came to EA Sports' reboot, he brought a list of 60 things the team needed to get right to make a true Jam.

The series' creative director explores what "The Turmell Hit List" and another original Jam personality - announcer Tim Kitzrow - bring to this game, which arrives on the Wii on Oct. 5 and will be available for free with a one-use code in copies of NBA Elite 11 on Xbox 360 and PS3, releasing the same day.
