You (Yes You!) Can Vote On Which Catchphrases Will Be Included In ‘NBA Jam’

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.

The four “regions” in the NBA Jam catchphrase bracket pay tribute to some classic lines from previous versions of the game: “Kaboom!”, “He’s On Fire!”, “Monster Jam” and “Slam-a-Jamma!” Voting begins tomorrow with the “Kaboom!” region and voting in the other three regions will occur on the following three days.

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:

Kaboom! Region:

  • “Stuffed Tighter Than A Turkey”
  • “Droppin’ a Deuce!”
  • “That Man Has Some Dunk In His Trunk!”
  • “He Took The Candy, Pacifier And Stroller From That Baby!”
  • “Diagnosis: You Suck!”

He’s On Fire! Region:

  • “No Shoot For You!”
  • “The Third Little Piggy Could Have Used That Brick!”
  • “Where’s The Gravy After That Stuffing?”
  • “Spread That On Your Sandwich!”
  • “Call Him Airplane Food Because He’s Nasty In The Air!”

Monster Jam! Region:

  • “Shake That Bodonkadonk!”
  • “Stimulus Package!”
  • “I Got The Pancakes, You Bring The Aunt Jam-Mama!”
  • “Take That, Global Warming!”
  • “He Cleaned Him Out With That Stolen-oscopy!”

Slam-A-Jamma! Region:

  • “He Could Knit A Sock With That Cotton!”
  • “The Dutch Called, They Want Their Windmills Back!”
  • “Dunkadelic!”
  • “Bow To Your Sensei!”
  • “Tang Tang, Boomerang!”

Wow, some of those are just phenomenal. And some of them are completely bizarre. But they are all certainly creative.
