    Shaq actually bought two machines. He kept one at home and then, if you can believe this, they shipped the game with them on their road trips, setting up the machine in their hotel rooms as they traveled. The players would play, then get someone to pack it up and ship it off to the next city.
    lol

    That's not surprising. There were a bunch of equalizing codes in that game. If you were on fire early on in the game it was almost a guarantee that you'd miss your next 10 shots.

    hated that game

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I remember doing front flip dunks with Derrick Fisher all the time on the Genesis when I was young. I didnt think there was anything odd about it back then
