The game is a classic. It’s fun to play. That being said,... For god’s sake, please update the rosters! I want to run the floor with Kyrie and Gordon in Celtic green! Instead, I’ve got Avery Bradley and Gerald Wallace?!? C’mon!!

Update roster!!

How about an update on the roster!! It’s 2018!!!!


I wish that you guys would update teams and leave the old ones behind

Roster Update


Was great, but now lame and won’t even open, DON’T BUY!

I loved this game back in the day in the arcade, and I first got the iOS version back in 2011, it was DOPE and rekindled fond memories. Then around the release of iPhone6 the app didn’t want to open, ever!!! Even today on my iPhone X it still crashes on start up. Prior to that the rosters weren’t being regularly updated (2014 is it’s last roster update), along with some questionable player stats & outright player omissions. I REALLY enjoyed playing this game the first few years (despite the ridiculous cheating the A.I. does after half-time when you’re whooping the computer’s arse) but the past 3 years I couldn’t even open the game as it always crashes now. Just happened again today (and yes I keep the app updated) so I finally deleted it. Don’t waste your time or money as EA stopped caring about supporting this game years ago.

Roater Update

This is the only game of its kind, I think it’s only fair and makes sense to give an updated rosters update.....

Same game for years

Seriously, update the rosters. You still have Steve Nash on the Lakers and Larry Sanders on the Bucks. It’s been like this for years. I was surprised to see an update finally and re-downloaded the app only to be disappointed again.

Great but could add some things.

Could you( ea) add season mode?could you also add a halftime show please?could you make it so we can make substitutions whenever we want besides halftime please?could you add the old teams logos like the bobcats and the blue and light brownish wizards,etc?could you make an intro to the game?could you maybe have could like a shooting foul?

Updated rosters

Please try to get updated rosters it would make the game soooooo much better.

Needs update

Bring new players like labron,curry,harden


Can I refund this game I accidentally bought

Game for iPad mini 4

Please update the rosters to this decade of the 2010’s

Amazing game, horrible rosters

Only bad things about this game is the rosters

Update please!!!

Update: still not updated??? Dang Durant still on the Thunder lol! Warriors don’t even have Klay??? Who wants to play the Warriors without both splash brothers. This is ridiculous. Greatest basketball game in history in my opinion. Would love to have an update of rosters, some new cheat codes, etc. Been playing for over a year, and would to see something new…please!!!

Serious Update

You guys need to update the rosters, courts, and ratings.


Keeps crashing has not been fixed for over a year

Needs an update

The game is good but it needs to update. It needs bug fixes, historic teams, and needs to up date the rosters

Update roster

Need to update the roster, current players are on other teams!!! This is an old game

This game does not update rosters fast enough !!


Please update roster

2018-2019 roster please update it will be great! Thanks

Update Rosters

Why not update the rosters every year before the season starts?

Needs plenty of improvement

CAN WE PLEASE GET A ROSTER UPDATE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Roster and stats Dated

Game is fun to play but I see updates are still being made but why aren’t rosters and stats updated

Great game

Can you update the rosters for 2018-2019 season EA you all do a nice job on all your games Love them Thank you

No Seattle Supersonics!

I don’t know why the Seattle Supersonics still aren’t on here it can easily be added on with an in game purchases or unlock through a challenge


Game is great just update the rosters.

Great games, needs roster update!

Update the rosters yo!


Update the rosters please

Needs Roster Update

Please give this or the Xbox version a roster update. It would make the game amazing and so many people would buy it. I still would rather play this over nba playgrounds but other people might not.

Great game but multiple problems

EA has built a great game but they have been slacking on the updates. I have some ideas that I think will really help the game. First, the game has fallen way behind on the rosters, most players have either been either A. Traded B. Retired or C. Just didn't get signed, and since the last roster update a ton of rookies have entered the league. This will greatly improve the game. Another idea that i think will help the game is the choice of jerseys. Having to play a game with the same uniforms every time gets a little irritating after a while. And I’m not talking about just having a choice of just home and away but having a wide selection of uniforms. I think that will greatly improve the game. Lastly, the legends, you add legends like, Larry Bird, Manute Bol, James Worthy Etc. They were all very well known. What about the players like Micheal Jordan, Allen Iverson or Magic Johnson Etc. they were great players just like the very few legends that are in the game. That will help the help the games rating skyrocket. I really hope you will greatly consider adding my ideas to the game. Thank you for your time.

Do You Care?

This can actually be one of the best games on IOS...the multiplayer game mode is awesome for example. The problem is that it’s clear the EA stopped caring about it. They charge a lot of money to really enjoy the features (I think $12 for the app plus upgrades) yet the rosters are all out of date and the player’s ability rankings are clearly done by people who don’t watch basketball. If you would please just respect the hard earns money people are putting in to buy this and update the app you would have a phenomenal product.

It’s fun but...

It’s fun but y’all really need to upgrade the players... The youngest players that have are the 2014 draft class smh

Used to be good.

Went from a 5 🌟 to a flop. Can't play it and I have a iPhone 6 plus. I want my money back! Updated 9/9/18: It’s ok when I’m just playing a quick game. I don’t care about the rosters to be honest like others. I would like to see better graphics since I have a newer phone. But it’s EA they don’t care so get what you can and enjoy what you can out of this game.

Great nostalgic game overall, does need some updates...

This game is awesome, great nostalgic play for us 90s big kids, it has some glitchy controls I must admit. If you’re holding down turbo on offense and go for a shot it passes the ball almost every single time. For this being a premium game, and in the top 100 for as long as it has, it deserves roster updates at least a few. It appears they made some at some point but there needs to be more. Either that or allow customized trades, it’s your highest ranked sports game, do some updates. And pay Jordan, good god the GOAT needs to always be in these games, and he never is. Make it happen. 4 stars for a 5 star playability game for now. Great job remastering it for touch interface.


Awesome, just update the rosters!

Love love love this game

I used to play NBA jam all the time when it first came out. I'd like to see teams updated possibly every year

Please read

This game is amazing it would be a whole lot better if you could update the rosters

Fix the roster

Great game but y’all need to fix the roster

Update Roster Please

Update the roster to show more current NBA players. Or move players to their current teams. I appreciate the players you have now but new faces or a switch up would refresh the game. Plus an online option to play other people around the world would be cool too.

Rosters are missing a certain something

Updates... but I see no difference. Rosters haven’t changed in years. Really wish they’d keep it up to date.




Great game but are you guys going to update stats and rosters? I would love to have updated rosters at the start of this upcoming season. It would definitely keep more people playing this game. Otherwise it gets boring. Roster changes are the main reasons why people buy new sport games. At least that’s what I do

Roster updates

Please just update the rosters...

When will you update political players?

Please update us with Trump and Pence to make this game great again! You could also add Pelosi and her group, if you have to ☹️




Fans only want one thing for this game!!! UPDATED ROSTERS and the devs never deliver. Good game but would be way better with updated rosters

Been crashing for years. You can’t even play a game.

Will delete it here soon.


Make their be current rosters instead of pointless big fix updates

Horrible updates

I’ve had this game for some time now and you would think that they would update the rosters accordingly. But unfortunately I don’t think any roster is recognizable with lack of updated rosters. And the iPhone X has been out for over a year. Can I please play a game that takes up the whole screen please.
