4. Game Modes
=============

A: -- Play Now --
Before you slam and jam during the NBA All-Star Weekend, get your feet wet with
an exhibition game against your toughest rival in Play Now mode.

     - Jersey Select Screen: From the Jersey Select screen you have the option
       to change you team's jersey for the upcoming game. Press (D-pad right)
       to select a Home, Away, or Alternate jersey. Some jerseys have to be
       unlocked in the NBA Store (using earned Task List points).

     - Pre-Matchup Screen: Select the skill level for the next game, along with
       quarter length, arena location, and camera view. You can also adjust the
       rules, preferences, gameplay settings, and in-game settings from the
       Settings screen.

B: -- Dynasty Mode --
Build pro basketball's greatest franchise of all-time. For multiple seasons,
you manage the roster; you coach the team; you play the games. Dynasty Mode
operates on a year-round NBA calendar so be prepared to handle the duties on
the court, as well as off it. After choosing a team and selecting your
settings, Season One begins.

     - Dynasty Development: Starting from your first Training Session, use your
       Dynasty Points to improve player and team abilities. You can also use
       your points to hire specialist coaches and pay for scouting trips.
       Dynasty Points are awarded for accomplishing feats in the Task List
       (displayed after each game, season, and playoffs) during the current
       season.

     - PDA/Roster Management/GM's Desk: Run your franchise with the help of the
       all-new PDA communication system. With the PDA, you'll receive valuable
       information from the league, players, and coaches that can help
       determine the success of your franchise.
       Other than the PDA, most of the action off the court occurs from the
       Roster Management screen or the GM's desk. From the Roster Management
       screen you can reorder rosters, view injury reports, sign, release,
       trade, and edit players. Review your Manager's Statetment, get the
       latest news from around the league, view upcoming free agents, and more
       from the GM's Desk.

     - Off-Season: After the playoffs, it's time for all the GM's to evaluate
       their respective teams for the upcoming season. Be sure to use valuable
       information from you team scouts to help evaluate talent. Listen to
       their advice and study up on the incoming class before draft day.
       Making a wrong pick could set your franchise back a few years.
       After the Rookie Draft is complete, you have the chance to bid on and
       offer contracts to free agents. Financial security is the main selling
       point to many of the players, but don't break the bank to sign them. Be
       sure to keep enough money in the budget in order to sign the key role
       players as well.
       To manage your roster, you can also re-sign and release players from
       the lineup. After the free agent period ends and your roster is set, the
       new season begins.

C: -- Season --
Play through the trials of a full NBA season. Set up a 29-, 58-, or 82-game
season and make your run for the championship. You can play the season with
any team using current NBA rosters, or assemble your team through a Fantasy
Draft. You can even randomize your schedule or customize your league by
switching up the teams in your division.

D: -- Playoffs --
Take part in the excitement of the NBA playoffs. You can participate in a
traditional format or you can customize your tournament--with or without a
Fantasy Draft.

E: -- One-on-One --
Schoolyard basketball hits the NBA. Prove yourself against anybody in a 1 on 1
showdown for ultimate bragging rights.

F: -- All-Star Weekend --
The energy explodes off the court during the NBA All-Star Weekend. From the
Rookie Challenge to the NBA All-Star game, prove yourself in each electrifying
All-Star event.

There are four events during the NBA All-Star Weekend. Your first event pits
the rookies against the sophomore players during the Rookie Challenge. After
slamming and jamming with the league's newest talent, rip the back of the net
during the 3 Point Shootout as you battle up to seven of the best long-range
shooters in the league. Playing in a tournament format, you have 60 seconds
to make as many shots (and score as many points) as you can. The winner moves
on, the losers go home.

Next on the bill--the Slam Dunk Contest. Bust out your best Freestyle moves
and wow the judges with an aerial assault that expresses your game like never
before. Finally, show off your skills against the best players in the league
during the NBA All-Star Game. It's East vs. West in this action-packed,
winner-take-all game.

G: -- Online Play --
Go Freestyle against the best basketball players in the country.

**Note: you must have a subscription to Xbox Live in order to play online.

H: -- Slam Dunk School --

In Slam Dunk School, progress through the ranks of Beginner Practice, Alley-oop
Practice, and Advanced Practice and perfect your skills along the way. You'll
need to master the moves learned here before you can fully compete in the Slam
Dunk Contest.
