NBA Unwired is a wireless package featuring official NBA content like video highlights, a two-on-two wireless NBA Game from JAMDAT Mobile, news and statistics and several other features like ringtones and wallpapers.
NBA also plans to release the first 5-on-5 wireless fantasy game; dubbed NBA Fantasy Five; developed by THQ Wireless and will allow fans to download the first series of official NBA player voice ringtones. I really don’t know how a Chris Webber or Richard Jefferson ringtone would sound, but I guess the NBA thinks people will wan’t it.

NBA Video Highlights – Wireless video highlights available shortly after every NBA game throughout the 2004-05 NBA season.
