    Really should have included Lakers v Celtics, bulls v Lakers, and Bulls v Blazers. Those were the real jumping off point for Live.

    On 96 live on Sega genesis if u go to create a player and enter the players name (i.e. Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, etc, it will add that player and all their stats to the game automatically)

    I saw an improvement through every games shown on the video, but in the mobile version, nba live lost graphics quality a bit, why though?? Unlike nba 2k mobile, the aspects of the year 2019 games are satisfied there, just an opinion guys. But it's more convinient to play nba live mobile than nba 2k mobile because it must be paid and the app is 2gb..

    Everyone should play NBA Live 2001 at least once. It had modern graphics buy the same arcade like gameplay physics. One button for shoot and dunk, the AI decided what to go for depending on position of the player on the court. I have clocked thousands of hours playing 2001, since 2001 and still play it. 2001 to me was the cloest gameplay feel like NBA Jam.
    Soon after 2001 EA changed to the more simulation type gameplay which introduced separate buttons for shoot and dunk, and many other complex moves and button combinations taking away the fun of arcade style playing.

    Nba live 98 was the biggest upgrade ever for live series... They added facial detail, actual play-by-play announcer tnt/tbs, and added fade away and leaner jumper moves, etc.... And after that 99 was a downgrade and rest of the years were all recycled trash.... The NBA live 98 team deserved the best promotion and it was a worthy price upgrade from 97.... After 2000, live was major shit and 2K all the way
