The Nintendo Switch Sold Out Everywhere

The people at Nintendo never figured that the Nintendo Switch would be sold out everywhere so quickly. Well, perhaps they did and most others didn’t. The popular console has would be customers eagerly waiting for stores to re-stock their shelves.

The Switch is the 7th major home videogame console that Nintendo has developed. It may also be one of its most successful yet. In fact, the Nintendo Switch is the fastest selling video game console in Nintendo’s history. The company cannot ship them fast enough to keep up with the public’s demands. But does that mean that Nintendo is back in the console(no pun intended) game business? Before the Switch, sales at Nintendo were not that great since the Wii U flopped.

What You Get In The Nintendo Switch

Even though the Nintendo Wii U was a failure for the company, the Switch was built around some of the ideas from that console. You can plug the Switch into your television just like a traditional console would. However, a person can continue seamless game playing if they decide to slide the two “Joy-con” controllers away from the screen. That makes it both a TV console and hand-held unit.

The Nintendo Switch also lets you play against friends and family. You can also play online with other Switch gamers just like you. Another great feature is the Switch’s ability to let you link up to 8 systems together. Parents can enjoy the parental controls the console has, to give them better control over what their kids do with the Switch.
Other great features include the removable joysticks on the side. Removing them can let you use the Nintendo Switch as a tablet or a hand-held video game console. You can use a single Joy-Con in each hand or give one to someone else. This all depends on the game you are playing.

The price for the Nintendo Switch begins at $299 and has bundles you can purchase as extras. But the bundles can end up raising the total to almost $500. Apparently, that has not stopped many from buying the Nintendo Switch since it is sold out everywhere. While the sales numbers could not have been better for Nintendo, there are concerns. The lack of production may hurt them in the long run. Plus, if another company comes out with a new console soon, those wafting for the Switch may opt for that one instead.

For now, Nintendo is very happy with the overall success and popularity the Switch is receiving. The truth is that people can’t get enough of the Switch and truly love the console. Many have compared the video game’s popularity to famous celebrities who everyone adores. There is no question that this console has been a much needed lift for the company. The only other console that had this much- success for Nintendo was the Wii. For now, those who want the Nintendo Switch will simply have to wait until the new batch arrives at stores.

The Greatest NBA Players List

When it comes to the NBA and who the greatest of all time players are, the arguments are many. Some feel that certain players should be included while others argue that some should not. There are also those that argue about the ranking positions given to certain players. One of the toughest jobs anyone can have is trying to rank NBA players by order. It is almost impossible to include a lot of names without leaving out others. Even if you create a top 100 NBA players of all time list, you will still run into problems.
Having 100 spots to fill is not enough since there have been so many great players in the history of the NBA. To make matters more complicated, you also have to consider current players. Historians will often leave out many of the best players in the NBA now in their listings.
No matter who you add to the NBA greatest players of all time list, there are those who feel that someone was left out. This is evident in many of the comments in articles which contain similar rankings. Fans also argue about the rankings of their favorite players. Some believe one may belong in the first place, while others believe it is someone else. In the end though, most do agree on who the GOAT is when it comes to the NBA.

No Argument On The Best Ever
In mostly every list we found that contained rankings and names of the greatest NBA players of all time, Michael Jordan was always there. Not only that, MJ was always ranked as number one. While there will be a few dissidents who argue that Lebron James should be at the top, most others do agree on Jordan though. That makes the part of who the best of all time NBA player argument is easier to win or lose. However, it does not make the ranking players after the first or second position, any easier. We decided to avoid opening up any arguments by simply adding some of the names of the GOATs without ranking them. Although we would have preferred to include more names, space was a factor we had to considered. Nonetheless, below are most of the names of NBA players who many feel are the best or greatest players ever.
Names that should be on the list of the best players in the NBA are the following:
Michael Jordan
As stated earlier, ranking MJ was not a problem for anyone since he is considered the greatest of all time. Jordan has a list of accomplishments in the NBA that would impress even non-fans. He led his team to win the NBA championship 6 times and each time he won the MVP’s Finals trophy. He also won the league’s MVP 5 times and made 14 All-Star appearances. Michael led the league in scoring 10 times as well.

Lebron James
The King or “The Chosen One” as many refer to him is a moniker Lebron seems to be taking seriously. He has already won 3 NBA Championships and he has won the Finals MVP each time as well. If James continues racking up stats as he is doing he may be in a position to dethrone Michael Jordan as the Greatest of all time. Lebron is a perfect combination of size, strength, athleticism and talent. All excellent ingredients that make any NBA player a legend.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
For 20 NBA seasons, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar dominated the league. That may explain why he is the all-time leading scorer in the NBA. If that wasn’t impressive enough, you have to look at his 50% shooting average during all of those seasons save for the last. He was 41 years old by that time so we give him a pass. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar compiled 6 championships and 6 MVPs. He also had 19 All-Star appearances which is incredible to say the least.
Charles Barkley
The power forward was known for his penchant to grab rebounds. He was also known to be a brawler. But, he still a name on the list of great NBA players.

Elgin Baylor
Many NBA fans today have probably never heard of the name Elgin Baylor. However, the 11-time All Star managed to average 27 points per game during his time. He accomplished this feat despite playing without the 3-point shot.

Hakeem Olajuwon
Hakeem has a resume that can get him into the NBA greatest list without a problem. He was a 12-time All-Star, 2-time NBA Champion and an MVP. He was best known for his magnificent and unstoppable post moves.

Kobe Bryant
Although Kobe Bryant is not as big in size and hands as many other players in the NBA, he still managed to accumulate many stats during his career. He appeared in the All-Star games 17 times and has 5 NBA championships to his name.

Larry Bird
Larry Bird had the misfortune of playing at a time when the 3-point shot was considered a gimmick. That’s why he probably did not bother to take that many. Still, Larry managed to put up some impressive numbers during his illustrious NBA career. He has 3 NBA championships along with a long list of other honors.

Wilt Chamberlain
No list of the NBA greatest players could ever be assembled without mentioning the super Wilt Chamberlain. The super man averaged an unprecedented 50 points and 26 rebounds per game during a run of 80 games in 1962. He also holds the record for the most points scored in a game which is 100.
Other names worth mentioning are Magic Johnson, Tim Duncan, Bill Russell, Shaquille O’Neal, Oscar Robertson, Moses Malone, Jerry West and David Robinson.
