NBA 2K's dominance of video game basketball was not immediate and 1999's iteration of Live brought one ginormous gun: Michael Jordan. This installment also introduced one-on-one playground ball where you could play against his Airness and tracks from artists including Naughty by Nature, Rahzel and Run DMC, prefiguring later games' emphasis on licensed music. It also built on Live 99's multiple season mode and developed a genuine Franchise mode that gave you control over free agency and the NBA Draft in the offseason.
