Description

Play through the 98/99 NBA season or multiple seasons to build up your team over time. Or just jump straight to the playoffs. Trade, release or pick up free agents to add to your team. Have a bit of fun with the 3 point shootout mode. And a host of new player animations, including facial animations, and player moves.
