There's no doubt about it: TV Sports: Basketball is a weird one. It doesn't seem like Cinemaware-the company that brought you lush, movie-like games including Defender of the Crown, Rocket Ranger and The Three Stooges-would be a natural for developing a sports title, but their take on roundball introduced the idea of TV-like presentation into the genre, with multiple camera angles and a TV host, a suspiciously Mike Brown-ish looking fellow. Of course, the TV station (TVS) was fictional, as were all the teams since the game didn't have an NBA license. That didn't stop them from putting a player on the Chicago team named Mike Jordache. This was not the last time that a game would pull some shenanigans to sneak Air Jordan into their product.
