  1. It’s hard to diss a game that looks so realistic (Iverson’s still rocking ’rows), but there’s just something wrong when the only way to stop anyone from driving to the bucket is by taking away their keys to the stadium.
  2. EA went with the idea that if they put in the ‘freestyling’ option, everyone would love the game – this may set the game alight, but by no means does it make the game stand out from the crowd – there just isn’t enough quality in the rest of the game.

    If up-tempo action and innovative control are more important to you than realism and online play, this may be your b-ball baby in 2003. [Winter 2002, p.99]

    I think is just about the same as NBA2K3 only for the free style. that made everything jump up a lil on the scale.
