At some point in 2007, a person said to themselves, “NBA Jam is a cool game, but it’d be a lot cooler if we hacked it so we could put the Clintons on the Washington Bullets and have them play against the Chicago Bulls.”
Whatever triggered the idea, it’s a real one — Hillary and Bill taking on Scottie Pippen and B.J. Armstrong in a game of 2-on-2. It’s not really clear if this is a computer simulation, two people playing each other, or one person vs. the computer, but Hillary and Bill vs. Pippen and Armstrong is happening regardless.
The Bulls jumped to an 18-11 lead after the first quarter, as Hillary was seemingly too distracted by her first campaign for president to focus all her attention on the game. This matchup is from 2007, remember, so it’d be unfair to make any e-mail server or Benghazi references, as we here at Uproxx hold ourselves to a high standard when it comes to topical jokes about video games.
We won’t spoil the ending to this heated affair, but there’s a comeback and drama late. It will be interesting to see if Hillary will have to answer questions about her subpar defense against Pippen as the Democratic National Convention starts begins Monday night.
