    I always liked NBA Jam, the only sports game (aside from Monkey Tennis, and similar ) I've spent significant time playing - though I played the GG version more than the MD one.

    NBA Jam T.E., the best basketball game ever. Even better when played with a multitap and four people, but awesome with one or two as well...

    No joke, man.

    For some reason, I am virtually unstoppable with the Washington Bullets.

    You can't go wrong with NBA Jam if you like arcad-ish feel games ( Chris Mullen from Golden State is unstoppable). If you are looking for a true to life game, look no further than NBA action 95. I really liked how the AI was smart and forced you to make good decisions with the ball unlike the NBA Live games where it seemed a bit too easy to score.

    NBA Live are the best real life Basketball games on the Mega Drive in my opinion. It has plenty of options for a Mega Drive game, and also the graphics are great!

    But my all time favorite Basketball game is College Slam. It is like NBA Jam TE with better graphics and that there is really addictive gameplay and the obvious lack of gravity that NBA Jam games have.

    Probably NBA Live 97. That would be his rookie year. (1996)

    At the time that NBA Live 96 came out, it was considered just a masterpiece for it's time. I can say that '95 and '96 have some absolutely amazing music. Most of the people I know that played basketball games during the 4th gen played NBA Jam TE, and NBA Live '95/'96. '96 was the first year that NBA Live was released on the PSX, so any subsequent releases on Genesis/SNES were just updated versions of '96. ('98 being the last)

    I thoroughly enjoyed Lakers vs Celtics as a kid and I enjoy it now.

    For the record, and for those who care...

    I hacked NBA Live '96, created an updated version with the 2019-2020 rosters called NBA Live 20 HWC, and most recently added Kobe Bryant as a hidden player. Please note that release was shortly before his tragic accident.
