* WakeupCallBoss: If the RubberBandAI doesn't get you, the Dallas Mavericks and the Minnesota Timberwolves in the original 1993 game will. To make matters worse, they are usually the first two teams you will go up against.

* UnstableEquilibrium / SuperMode: "He's on fire!" Make three shots in a row with a player and they get powered up, making it easier for them to make even more, and giving them powered-up dunking abilities. The 2011 ''On Fire'' edition adds Team Fire, by performing 3 consecutive alley-oops. The team is given 20 minutes of fire status, but can be extinguished by an opposing alley-oop.
