Can someone give me tips? I absolutely suck at this game, but I kind of love it anyway.
I'm constantly getting slammed (and the rubber band AI's ability to pull off 3 pointers makes it frustrating).
Are you using all the different moves? There are a lot of things you can do, so check the help screens. My first few games were close, but once I started using more moves, I started stomping on the AI. Also, alley-oops seem overpowered, so try to use those a lot.
For those who have played, is it predominantly current players, or are some of the classics available as well? Also, is there an online component?
Each of the NBA teams has their current players and two unlockable classic players in their classic uniforms. You can play online, but I've only done random matchups, so I'm not really sure of the the match setup options.
