Sega Sports unleashes its award-winning NBA 2K2 franchise onto the Nintendo GameCube. 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? It's in there! The big man's 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. Sharper skills and smarter D elevate your game to a higher level and make NBA 2K2 the one to beat on GameCube.





Authentic NBA play - Defensive player rotation, intelligent ball movement, pick and rolls, smart coaching decisions deliver a true NBA basketball experience.

Devastating new low post moves... 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.

Time your steals to jump in the passing lane to grab the ball or steal it out the ball handler's hand while he attempts a spectacular move.

Broadcast-quality presentation - Dramatic camerawork, inspired commentary, TV- style overlays, and exciting crowd reactions give the user the best seat in the house!

Recreate NBA team plays and authentic coaching styles. Use the system to give your best offensive weapon the opportunity to embarrass his opponent.

New moves and countermoves highlight the individual match-up experience. Master the new crossover and low post moves, but beware of a well-positioned counter.

IGN Cube:

"Those interested in a more accurate basketball simulation need look no further than Sega's NBA 2K2, the latest in an ongoing series from Visual Concepts. It's the game professional athletes, not just NBA players turn to when they want to fire up some NBA..."


Game Spot:
"NBA 2K2 is the GameCube roundball simulation to beat. Its wealth of gameplay modes dwarfs that of the competition, the gameplay can be slightly buggy at times but remains predominantly tight, and the graphics are more than adequate. Thanks to the street mode, it's like there are two games in one."
