Between that game and Mutant League Football, 1993 was THE year for arcade sports in the Lucard household. I spent a lot of time and quarters on the original arcade game and happily picked up the Sega Genesis version when it came out. However I just wasn’t a fan of any of the sequels. NBA Jam Extreme, NBA Hangtime, College Slam and the other NBA Jam remakes failed to capture the magic of the original."
