Official Fact Sheet:
Can you say “Dynasty?” After two years of roundball domination on Dreamcast, Sega Sports unleashes its award-winning NBA franchise on the next-generation basketball court with NBA 2K2. Building upon a foundation of vibrant graphics and crisp, detailed player animation, NBA 2K2 talks the talk and walks the walk! High pick and roll? We got it! Killer crossover? Its in there! The big mans game? You betcha! On offense, use the versatile low post game to drop step around your defender and explode past him for a posterizing dunk, back him down into the key and pull up for a sweet hook, or lull him to sleep and pass to the open man. Tight AI defenders take away the baseline, deftly rotate to the open man, and establish rebounding position in the paint.

- Devastating new low post moves, exclusively captured by NBA All-Star Rasheed Wallace — Exploit your defender with a quick drop step, back him down into the key, pull up for a sweet fadeaway, or pass to the open man.
