Oh my god I used to love 2k2 on dream cast.

Currently I'm hooked on NBA 08 for PSP (LOL) but my favourite is probebly NBA Live 2003 for PS2. That games started my addiction.

sweet spots! & a Tom Chambers double pump jam that nearly had 3pt. range.

Still play it on genesis. The following versions had more teams and a wider variety of circus dunks, but I enjoy this one the best.

For arcade style action and gameplay, NBA Jam was great — especially with 4 players. I had the Super Bomberman tap for SNES and my friends and I would "jam on this game for hours. It was funny, I use to use the Mavs and WIN!

I like this too — should be properly titled Pistons vs. Blazers (it even says on the back of the box "can the Pistons take the Blazers again?"
This is the best EA basketball game they did… the other Bulls vs. games and NBA Showdown 94 all played horribly slow for a Genesis game even. Heck NBA Showdown played better on SNES even though it was choppy.

AND my personal favorite…



Tecmo NBA was a nice blend of simulation, and arcade style game play. It even tracked stats. My team was the Kings. Tisdale led the league in scoring and FG% and Jim Les and Pete Chilcutt led in 3 pointers Those guys would NEVER miss!

I gotta go with NBA 2k8.

It's got such a robust Franchise mode that I can't help but love it.

If only the presentation was better.

Not a bad choice at all . That 16-bit era was a golden age. However as a personal preference of that time, I was more fond of the way sports games played on the genesis.

Also, good mention of NBA JAM the arcade element blended with real life elements of nba on nbc themes and music.

Tiger handhelds made a decent version of jordan vs. bird if anyone -- like myself -- was into the "blip" style. I'm not sure what else to call it.



(bowling, baseball & pinball were fantastic handhelds from tiger. Jordan v Bird was a tier below with heavy barrel; enjoyable, yet not captivating to the point where you're playing underneath the desk in the 4th grade while the teacher is explaining fraction - decimal conversions.)

Also worthy of mention was double dribble with what can only be called primitive cut scenes. A thoroughly enjoyable game.
