I am convinced there is something to this curse/jinx but only in madden football..... doesn't really apply to NBA Live I guess. Main reason I brought it up on here today was that I noticed Arenas on the cover of NBA Live 2008 and I know it is supposed to be a big contract year for him and all and with all the talking he has been doing.

Ok.... I copied and pasted this from another link.... this is what they have to say about the nba live covers.
