VERSION HISTORY
*******************************************************************************

Version 1.1 - 5/11/03
ITS FINISHED!!!
I took out the descriptions for the various dunks and tricks because there 
were so many that were similiar.  Also it became hard to describe some of them.
There's not much more to add except for any random email questions that aren't
addressed in the Faqs.  Enjoy your game!

vERSION 1.0 - 5/11/03
Major updates added to the faqs.  For the most part, its completed.  Street 
School, Game Features, Controls and Edit menus all added.  I may add more 
emailed questions at a later date.  Enjoy!

Version .05 - 5/7/03
I've added the moves from the "Edit Moves" screen.  I will describe them briefly
once I have more time.  Its 12PM and I've been so busy that I'm eating breakfast
right now.  Tomorrow, they will be posted with the Street school.

Version .025 - 5/6/03
I've updated most of the Milestones descriptions.  There are a few that I 
haven't accomplished yet but I'll have them by tomorrow.  I also updated the 
reward points on the Street Legends section and started detailing the NBA 
Challenge section.  I'm going to add all the players for every team and include
the NBA Legends that you have to face at the end of the Division.

Version .02 - 5/5/03
This is my first strategy guide so please bear with me.  I will add the good
stuff first and work my way backwards to the basic stuff that is in the book,
which was included with the game.  Besides, people read strategy guides for the 
stuff that they don't know, not the stuff that is given to you before you even
start playing.  I hope you enjoy it when it done.  I will be updating it very
frequently since I've been playing the game every day since the day I bought it.
And being a New York Street Baller, I have seen and played on most of the New
York courts.

*******************************************************************************
INTRODUCTION
*******************************************************************************

I'll be brief.  NBA Street is all about basketball from the street ball 
perspective.  This is not a 5 on 5 game with substitutions and time outs.  If
you've played the original NBA Street, then the game will be easy to pick up on.
If you're new to NBA Street, then there are certain things that you need to know
in order to win.  First, there are no fouls, just like in real street ball, so 
hack, chop, push, hook, whatever...its all good.  Most of these tactics are 
pulled off by doing tricks (fancy dribbling and incredible dunks).  Second, 
there are no game clocks except for the 24 Second shot clock.  So you don't 
have to worry about 3 seconds in the paint, 10 second call to get across the 
half or time running out in a quarter or half.  Third, the game is based on 
having fun!  Do lots of tricks, embarrass your friends in Vs play, dunk on your
older brother and shoot Granny's eyes out with spectacular jump shots.

*******************************************************************************
EDITING A BALLER
*******************************************************************************

There a lots of ways to hook up your baller in this game.  The biggest change
in the creating of your baller is that once you set their size (height and 
build), they remain this way for as long as you keep that player.  So there is
no making a 5'10" player in your likeness and later making him (or her) grow 
to 7'8".

Here are the things you can edit:

Gender - Male, Female or even a premade character (what fun is that)
Build - this changes depending on your players shape
     Stocky - M (5'9" 200 lbs)
              L (6'1" 220 lbs)
              XL (6'5" 240 lbs)
              XXL (6'9" 260lbs)
     Athletic - M (5'10" 185 lbs)
                L (6'2" 205 lbs)
                XL (6'6" 225 lbs)
                XXL (6'10" 240 lbs)
     Lean - M (5'11" 175 lbs)
            L (6'3" 200 lbs)
            XL (6'7" 215 lbs)
            XXL (6'11" 235 lbs)
     Massive - M (6'0" 210 lbs)
               L (6'4" 220 lbs)
               XL (6'8" 250 lbs)
               XXL (7'0" 275 lbs)
Look - choose any one from Look A to Look R
Hair - there are 18 different styles to choose from
Facial hair - you have 23 different styles to choose from (not available when
     creating a female)
Outfit - You have from outfit A to outfit I to choose from.  Each of these
     comes in 3 colors but to change to those alternate colors, you must spend
     some developmental points (which are earned from playing Be A Legend mode
     or bought with Reward points from Pick Up Game or NBA Challenge mode).
     There are also unlockable old school jerseys which you earn in different
     ways (see Jersey section below)
Skills - you can adjust your shots, dunks, power, blocks, steals, handles, 
     rebounds
Name - You get 8 characters to choose the players first and last name
Baller Icon - there are 7 baller icons to choose from

YAY!  You have created your baller!!

There is one more thing you can edit about your baller's appearance, which 
     becomes available when you go back to edit your baller

Edit shoes - there are a bunch of different shoes here ranging from old school
     to new (style A to style T).  You will have to purchase the shoes with 
     DP (developmental points) just like the outfits.
