Why I pack it: "My teammates and I play this thing all the time on road trips. It's all in one: Xbox 360, HDTV, headset and controllers for online trash-talk. Some of the guys like Gears of War, but we mostly play NBA 2K10. Me and Donte Greene always go at it -- and I usually come out on top. It's a cool-looking briefcase too. People always want to know what's in there. I tell them I'm Inspector Gadget."
