All Star skills competitions

Postby tinpanalley on Tue Mar 10, 2020 1:29 pm

Are there any NBA games that do an All Star Skills competition during the season (or outside season play?).
I remember there was even a version of NHL that had a skills competition you could play on its own. 95 maybe?

I'm pretty sure the NBA ShootOut series did, as it was developed by 989 Studios who once sponsored the event. I have a feeling that carried over into the Sony-produced NBA series on PS2 and PS3 as well.

It's the Three-Point Shootout. Both it and the Dunk Contest are represented in NBA 2K20, though not as a standalone modes. You asked about the Skills Challenge, though. That hasn't been in any recent games.

Oh, what a total brain fart.. I was saying that but 3pt shootout and Dunk Competition is what I meant. :lol:
So they're available in Single Season and Franchise modes?

They are. NBA Live hasn't had them since NBA Live 09, but NBA 2K currently has them in those modes.
