The spiritual successor to NBA Jam (at least until Jam got its own HD remake in 2010), Street brought a measure of fun and flair back to the blacktop, capturing the culture of streetball, which was white hot with the And-1 tour at its peak in the early 21st century. EA could once again offer you Michael Jordan as they did in NBA Live 2000, but now he was titanic, a colossus. That kind of imaginative transformation made the game more about wish fulfillment than simulation, but it's undeniable that it made basketball feel great, especially when you went up against a friend, old-school, on the couch.
