In this game, there are 29 NBA teams, that are fully playable in all modes once unlocked. The game also features four different modes to choose from including a Pick-Up Game (Regular game, default is 21 points, and can be set to 50 points), NBA Challenge (Beat all NBA teams and the legends from there with a normal or customizable team), Street School (Learn the basic and advanced moves and tricks in NBA Street Vol. 2), and Be a Legend (Create your own baller and become a legend). The game also features several new trick moves and dunks as well as introducing a level two "gamebreaker".
This game is the only available game on the market in which three incarnations of Michael Jordan are playable: the 1985 Chicago Bulls Jordan, the 1996 Chicago Bulls Jordan, and the Washington Wizards Jordan. It is possible to play as a team made up of the three different Jordans (or the "All-Jordan" team as Bobbito Garcia refers to it). This game features Michael Jordan, Julius Erving, and "Bonafide" on the front of the game cover.
Street Legends summaries
- Stretch (Hometown: Harlem, NY) is an afro-adorned player. Stretch's dunking stats are maxed out (indicated by a gold crown), making him one of the better dunkers in the game, and it leads him to play closer to the hoop instead of shooting from the paint. Stretch is also the teacher of "Street School."
- Biggie Little (Hometown: Chicago, IL) is one of the better ball-handlers in the game, with his handling stats maxed out. His crossovers seem to be challenging to stop, and is an overall good player that will make an excellent addition to your team in single-player.
- Whitewater (Hometown: Seattle, WA) is a very tall player, which makes him a decent center and blocker, but with his shooting stats maxed out.
- Dime (Hometown: Newark, NJ) is the only female street legend in the game. She is a great defensive player, and has her steal stats maxed out.
- Osmosis (Hometown: Oakland, CA) is a well-rounded offensive and defensive player, with his stats maxed out on blocks, and pretty decent handling stats. He is last years Street Champion. He plays at real life Mosswood Park.
- Bonafide (Hometown: Harlem, NY) is a great rebounder (with his rebound stats maxed out) and is an over-all well-rounded player. The young blood has returned to the streets and now rules Rucker Park.
