This is an arcade-like version of a basketball game. It isn’t affiliated with the NBA so there aren’t actual players or teams but that doesn’t make it any less fun. Play as a guy who just loves basketball and learn how to run and shoot in a gym. Once you’re ready to play against others, you have a few options. You can play in Arcade mode, which is a two v. two game against the computer. You can also play a Shootout against someone random or a friend.
