Deron Williams has gotten a lot of bad press lately. With the firing of Brooklyn Nets coach Avery Johnson, he garnered a reputation as a coach killer/diva. But here’s some more Williams news that isn’t bad PR. The freshly-launched NBA Baller Beats (the first ever motion-based sports video game using a real basketball in an interactive beats-driven experience) exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360 ($39.99; 29.99 at Walmart). The game is the brain-child of semi-pro basketball player Curtis Smith and includes the faces of Deron Williams of the Nets and Kenny Smith. NBA Baller Beats represents the convergence of advanced technology and athletics.   ·         NBA Baller Beats – The first ever full body motion-based NBA video game that lets you perform like a pro using a real basketball.   ·         NBA Baller Beats will come packaged with an official NBA game ball replica from Spalding®.   ·         Bounce the ball to the beat of 30 licensed tracks that span across decades and genres including hip-hop, rock and old school classics.   ·         From novice to pro, every baller can raise their game with three difficulty levels available on every song: Rookie, Pro, and Baller.   ·         The game challenges players to master ball-handling skills by dribbling and performing moves including crossovers, pump fakes, flow dribble and more.   ·         Train alongside your favorite NBA franchise unlocking songs, difficulty levels, environment accessories, over 100 posters and Panini’s 2012 NBA HOOPS trading cards that showcase NBA players’ greatest moves.   ·         Master different baller moves and increase your stamina in single player mode, break it down and practice different skills in Move School mode or show-off in multiplayer mode and go head-to-head against up to 8 players – the highest score wins bragging rights.   ·         Show-off your baller skills as the Kinect camera takes pictures that you can upload and share on Facebook.
