After over 3,000 submitted entries of suggestions for new catchphrases average folks wanted included in the updated version of NBA Jam, the powers-that-be have whittled them down that sizable list to the best 64 which will now be pitted against each other in a tourney bracket.

You can hear each entry enthusiastically read by the one and only Tim Kitzrow – the original voice of NBA Jam – through a link on the game’s Facebook page. Below are my five favorites from each region:
