Hey, It's That Guy!: Players like Tom Gugliotta, Mike Iuzzolino and Blue Edwards are probably better known for their NBA Jam selves than their real life selves.
Hey, It's That Voice!: The announcer for EA's versions of NBA Jam is none other than Tim Kitzrow, who started out as the announcer of NFL Blitz and other similar sports games by Midway (NHL Hitz and MLB Slugfest).
Screwed by the Lawyers: Due to conflicting player contracts with competing game studios, Acclaim was forced to remove Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal from NBA Jam Extreme's player roster.
Some have also claimed that the three players' filmcontracts that year also kept them from appearing in Extreme. Neither Acclaim nor the film studios confirmed nor denied this.
