As a basketball fan, you’d have to be living under a rock to not know that the NBA 2K series leads the way in NBA video games over the past few years. And now 2K Sports has released the newest iteration in the franchise, NBA 2K12.

Building on the huge success of last season’s Michael Jordan edition of the game, 2K12 features classic rosters from across the NBA and across the decades. Whether you’re more of a Magic Johnson type or you like your shorts short like John Stockton, you can step into your idol’s shoes (or shorts) in this year’s game.

Very soon we’ll have a review of the game here at A Stern Warning. In the meantime however, the great news is that YOU CAN WIN one of two copies of the game for yourself!

This contest is open to Australian residents only (unlike previous years where it has been open only to American residents).

To win one of two copies of NBA 2K12, all you have to do is: 

1. Hit ‘Like’ on our Facebook page:


2. Tell us in 25 words or less, “Who is your favourite NBA roster of all-time, and why?” Email your answers to ASternWarning (at) with the subject “NBA 2K12 Contest” or simply click here to send the email.

The contest closes for entries on Friday 4 November at 6pm. Entries will be judged on the merits of the teams chosen and the reasons given. All decision-making ultimately falls to the Editor of this site.
