System GameCube
Developer Left Field
Genre Basketball
Series NBA Courtside Series

A basketball game on the GameCube, fronted by basketball star Kobe Bryant and featuring real teams and players from the NBA.

Gain possession of the ball, pass and dribble it across the court and put the ball through the hoop to score. The team with the most hoops when time runs out is the winner.

You can take part in NBA Season Play, where you have to win matches through an entire season to win the tournament, while Skills Mode lets you play as a manager, setting player stats and positions. The Arcade Mode is a less realistic take on the game, featuring outrageous special moves and flaming basketballs.
