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.
