Sega's first attempt at Basketball on the PC includes plenty of neat visuals; realistic AI and motion capture work; official licenses of the NBA including players, teams and courts; practice mode to help you get used to your team; and a multiplayer mode (for up to 5 players on one computer). You can also create your own team and players in the edit mode, in case you don't like what the NBA offers.

One the cover of NBA Action 98: LA Lakers guard Kobe Bryant during his rookie season ('96-'97). Kobe is even mentioned in the game's credits. The rosters of the game itself are based on the '97-'98 season (Tim Duncan's rookie year).
