Two teams square off at mid-court. Up they go for the jump ball. You fake, drive, and move in for a slam dunk!

Each three man team of remarkably realistic athletes can dribble, pass in any direction, jump, block, steal . . . even take a casual set shot when they've caught the other guys napping

Four action-packed quarters -- plus overtime when needed!

  • Pass, steal, rebound, fast break, jump or set shot
  • Two players
  • 24 second clock
  • Licensed by NBA Properties, Inc.
