YMMV: NBA Jam
  • Anti-Climax Boss: Shaq in the 2010 version. You have to stop him from breaking the backboard within three minutes. And it's pathetically easy: steal the ball, do crossover, repeat crossover ad nauseum for an easy win.
  • Fridge Brilliance: The Phoenix Suns' roster in the recent game is like that because the real life Suns are known for playing "small-ball" and since they're NBA Jam 2010 line-up will have Steve Nash, Grant Hill, Jason Richardson, Kevin Johnson, and Dan Majerle (who are all guards in the NBA)...
  • Memetic Mutation: "BOOM SHAKALAKA!"
    • "He's heating up... He's ON FIRE!!!"
  • Music of Awesome: The boss battle music for "The Mailman" Karl Malone, Shaq Diesel, and Dr. J for Electronic Arts' game.
  • That One Boss: In the 2010 version, "Dr. J" Julius Erving. For the other boss battles, there's clear strategies to beat them. The Dr. J boss battle though, due to the rules of the match and lack of clear strategy, is incredibly difficult. Beating him requires you to pace yourself scoring and, for when he DOES have the ball, to be good at blocking.
    • If you want a major challenge, try playing against Dwayne Wade and Lebron James. THEY WILL KILL YOU.
