DescriptionTwo of the greatest icons of the Golden Age of the NBA match up in this game. On one side, the spectacular dunks of Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls; on the other, Larry Bird's incredible accuracy from the outside.
While Bird feels right home at the three-point contest, where five racks with five balls each are placed around the three-point arc and the player must pick each ball and throw in the the best timing possible to get as many points as possible during the 60 second window, only Jordan has the air-time to perform on the slam dunk contest, where the player has a number of dunks at his disposal, each requiring different timing to get the best score from all three attempts from the judges, and win the competition.
While they are two completely different players, they can still go one-on-one on a half-court match, played to points or with a time duration. Can Bird's stealing and outside shooting ability be a match to Jordan's speed and jumping abilities?

AudienceWhen you take a look at the audience, you'll notice the Bulls mascot on one side and the Celtics mascot on the other side.
Also in the audience: a guy dressed in white & red basketball clothes with the number 6 on his breast. Six was the number that Julius Erving (a.k.a. Dr. J) wore when he played with Philadelphia. Not a coincidence of course, because this game is a sequel of the game One-on-One.
