NBA Courtside 2002 is the GameCube's first basketball game. It utilizes motion-captured moves and face-mapping. There are a total of 29 NBA teams plus the Western All-Stars and the Eastern All-Stars. You can perform adrenaline-boosted moves or alley-oop dunks. Passing can be done easily with the introduction of the C-Stick passing. The game boasts a great number of dunks and layups animations.
