  • Animated bench sequences
  • Post-basket reactions
  • More player interactions
  • Multiple post-game celebrations
  • For the first time, you have complete control in the low post, allowing you to experience what it is like to play among the giants in the paint.
  • Back your defender down and then select from a number of different post moves such as an up and under layup, jump hook, and turn around and fade away jump shots.
  • Feel the contact and battle for position, finishing off your defender with a monster dunk.
  • New approach to speech captures the essence of the interaction between the play-by-play and color commentators
  • Bob Elliott adds new in-depth play analysis
  • All-new color commentary provides for more intelligent and relevant interaction with game play-by-play.
