    Author's Note;
    This is the final version of this faq, after six months of playing 24/7, I have
    obtained 3010 rank points, not knowing how high it goes and the fact that my
    file was erased has stopped me from playing. This faq will no longer be
    updated, but I can still answer questions. This has been a Menji76 FAQ.

    --Section I--
    Q: What is 24/7 mode?
    A: A game mode in ESPN NBA BASKETBALL where you create your own
    character and build up his skills. Just like the name if you donÕt come
    back to play every day your stats will go down like in real life.
    Q: How do you build stats up?
    A: You go to the training center and work on differect aspects to complete.
    Q: How do I get more Rank Points?
    A: Play in one of the different areas and beat the player you are put up
    against to 21.
    Q: Is Michael Jordan in the game?
    A: No, even though him and Charles Barkely were on the 90Õs all-star
    team they are not on that roster, I have no clue why they were not put in.
    Q: What different grades are there and how can you get them?
    A: If you score 21 points in a game, then S=0, A=1-5, B=6-11, C=12-18
    D=19+ F=Lose, if you make 22 points in a game, then itÕs one lower for
    Q: What happens when you beat it?
    A: You really understand the basketball game so much more. It also lets you
    stay away for a long time and you don't lose your stats.
    Q: What is the highest rank points you can achieve?
    A: I originally thought it would be 3000 but I now believe it could be up to
    9999 points, my file was erased and I have no urge to start it again.

    24/7 Tips
    -Easy Points on Good Defense Players-
    When you play the harder levels in 24/7 mode. Where the players guard
    you very well, start at the top of the 3pt line and run to the left to the top
    left corner of the key as you yourself look at it, then run straight
    across the free throw line to the other side of the line, and once there run
    straight down the key line, once you complete that you are right there
    running to get an easy dunk or lay-up.
    -Bomb Ball Tips-
    If they ever score on you wait till the timer is exactly 4.0 seconds and
    launch a three. If you do it right, they will catch the rebound and it will
    explode soon after causing them to lose a point. Another tip is to never
    get a rebound unless itÕs absolutely necessary.
    -Open Shots-
    In the beginning game places, you can fake most ballers out with the
    pump fake, and get a wide open three, by slightly tapping the Square
    button, then while they coming down shoot the three. Be careful while
    doing this to often or against the harder ballers, as they can steal it from
    -Once you beat the final Boss, your attributes will never deteriorate, you
    can play him once you reach 2900 rank points.
