Video Game: Hoops (1988)

The 1988 NES title Hoops featured eight players who just wanted to play a little pickup ball, be it 1-on-1 or 2-on-2. While there are arguments to be made as to the quality of Face or Bomber, there was no one better than Mr. Doc, the lanky, all-around baller.

Dubbed an "all round player" who could run, shoot, pass, and dribble, Mr. Doc could dominate in all facets of the game-the opening shootout, around the world mode, and especially in games. It's no secret that at the end of the game you learn that Mr. Doc has become a star forward in the NBA and, in a Twilight Zone-esque twist, now endorses the very game he is in.
