With "NBA Jam" celebrating its 25th anniversary this month, ESPN.com asked five NBA players about the iconic arcade game, including their favorite memory, which teams and players they played with, and which modern pairing of teammates would make the best duo in a 2018 version of the game.
1. What is your favorite 'NBA Jam' memory?
Seth Curry, Dallas Mavericks: I mean, I was young, obviously, but I just remember me and my brother used to play all the time. I think my dad was on there with [the Charlotte] Hornets. Him and LJ [Larry Johnson]. I would pick my dad and shoot half-court 3s and things like that. It's definitely a classic game.
Iman Shumpert, Sacramento Kings: Me and my bro, we used to get in a lot of fights because of "NBA Jam." I just remember I used to play with my uncle, and my uncle played video games like this: He would hold the direction pad like this [motions and puts controller on side of his hip] and play on the Sega like that. That's what I was used to.
