Lucic Checks in on EA Sports’ King of the Court

Black and Gold  power forward Milan Lucic joined fellow superstars Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic, tennis star Venus Williams and soccer star Sacha Kljestan on Monday to take part in EA Sports’ Fall Starting Lineup event which promoted their soon-to-be released video games: NBA Live, NHL 10, FIFA 10, and Grand Slam Tennis.

The four participated in four events — hockey, soccer, basketball
and tennis — to determine the “King of the Court.” Despite Howard
ending up as the overall winner, Boston’s beloved basher highlighted
the event with what he does best: deliver organ-altering hits.

NHL 10’s producer David Littman explained how the
intensity and realistic play in his latest creation makes it one of the
most life-like hockey games to hit the market.

“NHL 10 is all about emotion and intensity,” he told Vancouver’s straight.com, “which is Milan’s game. Checking, fighting, and board play are all part of his game.”

For those who doubted Littman, Lucic proved the game creator was spot-on by sending him into the boards with a nice body check.

“Hit and pin,” Lucic explained. “You need to know how to use the boards to your advantage.”

“I think you hurt my spleen,” bellowed the producer.

Believe us Littman, your spleen isn’t the first and won’t be the
last to feel the wrath of Looch. Despite witnessing this incredible
strength firsthand, one member of the media tried foolishly taking his
shot at Lucic, too (see also: Mike Komisarek).

As vancouversun.com reports, Karim Mendiburu,
a reporter from Telemundo holding a stick for the first time (and
likely the last) in his life, volunteered for another demolition
demonstration and was sent up and over the boards by Lucic.

One interesting observation from theprovince.com
was Lucic’s abilities on the soccer field, noting “Lucic was a beast at
soccer, easily ripping off two powerful penalty kicks into the net.”
