    For those of you too young to remember this greatness of a game!

    Nice trip back in memory lane. That player needed more goaltends and dunks to get on fire.

    Remember that the original arcade version had Drazen Petrovic and Reggie Lewis in it... both of whom died?



    I'd be scared if I were in the game, personally.

    While this video has nothing to do with this thread, and I don't mean to put a damper on it, if you're a Wayman Tisdale fan, and/or a country music fan, you're gonna have a hard time watching it, but it's worth it. It'll put a big time lump in your throat.

    As for NBA Jam, as a kid, when I couldn't bum quarters off people, I'd spend hours just watching people play. The game was awesome. If I remember, one version had Hakeem and Clyde on it (or am I wrong...)? I was sitting here trying to think of the duos the Rockets had, and feel slightly ashamed I can't totally remember. I want to say that Otis Thorpe was on one game, too. I could be way off base, though. Man, I used to spend hours once I got the game for Super Nintendo. From the backboard shattering, to the hidden characters, to the utter beatdowns I used to give the computer, this game was cool. I'll buy it.

    They had a version at the Willowbrook arcade that had Robert Horry on the Pistons and Sean Elliot on the Rockets.

    The guy playing that game wasn't even all that good. Come on, no ridiculous goaltends or jacking up threes that have no business going in but do anyway? Plus, what was up with all those pull up jumpers? Just dunk it!

    This game is responsible for devaluing the mid range jumper.
