The NBA rejected this Mortal Kombat-themed NBA Jam court for some reason

Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon continues to tweet about rarities from the MK archives, this time a Kombat-themed court intended for one of Acclaim's NBA Jam or NBA Hangtime games. "The spine held up the backboard," Boon explained. "The skull was the hoop and the flesh head was the basketball. Would've been fun!"

In the following tweet, Boon offers the reason that this disgusting court didn't make it into the game. Unsurprisingly, despite the cachet the Mortal Kombat series had, the NBA declined to allow a basketball court made of human body parts into a game with its name on it.

This court works pretty well as a shorthand for the ridiculousness of the Mortal Kombat series' emphasis on outrageous, nonsensical gore. See the full image, including the hoop and ball graphics, after the break.
