This is a basketball simulation game in which players can select teams from real NBA rosters, compete in tournaments, and play through regular seasons. Players can also manage individual franchises and control the careers of their customized athletes. Accompanying cutscenes include occasional references to violence: accidental deaths of characters are briefly discussed; one character mentions “open[ing] my wrists or jump[ing] in front of an A train.” Dialogue also contains some suggestive material: discussion of "thirsty hotties,” a car described as an “aphrodisiac for hotties,” a man singing, "Love it how the bunnies bounce when they're on top." Characters also make fleeting references to alcohol: “[W]hen he wasn't trashed. . .”; “[Y]ou see that's my new mouth wash. Hmm…distilled?" The word “damn” appears in dialogue.
