Learning the ropes

If it all seems like too much, there's a helpful tutorial narrated by none other than two-time NBA champ Kenny Smith (check out our interview with Smith about his role as the game's brand ambassador here).

The tutorial walks you through the scoring system and some basic moves, then drops you into the move school, which lets you practice individual maneuvers at a variety of speeds to your heart's content.

Aside from some interface problems (the moves are only actually explained on the loading screen, meaning you have to back out to the main menu and start over again every time you want to switch moves), the tutorial is a perfect intro to the game's mechanics and quirks.
