In my previous NBA Street video I said I wanted to create some nice historic match-ups, and here is the first one. I simply added Magic to one of the greatest duos of all-time in Shaq and Kobe to make a versatile all-Lakers squad. Going up against them is a team full of some of the best athletes the NBA has ever seen in Wilt Chamberlain, Dr J, and a young Michael Jordan.

Following last game's comeback against the Chiefs, the unbeaten Patriots rolled into Denver to take on the Broncos. This was just before the Brady era, but the passing game for New England was highly effective and I had issues slowing it down all game. Fortunately for me, Terrell Davis was dominant and delivered a big performance to help hold off the Patriots surge.

Following the disappointing loss to Oakland, the Broncos returned to Denver to take on another division rival, the Chiefs. I was able to move the ball on the ground effectively, but scoring points was a challenge and I found myself down by 2 touchdowns for most of the game. There were some amazing highlight plays from both teams in what would turn into an early candidate for game of the season.

In NBA Street Vol 2, you can't add players to NBA rosters during the city circuit. Instead, you have to create a brand new custom team and add them that way. Because of this, I decided to mix things up a little and bring together the Celtics Big 3 of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen all in their primes. The first game is against the defending champion Lakers with Shaq, Kobe, and Derek Fisher. As you might expect with this much firepower on the court, it came down to the wire.

After laying the smackdown on the Falcons, I felt pretty confident about going into Oakland and at least coming out with a victory. I had forgotten about what Da Raiders did to my team in the Titans franchise in Madden 2005, and this was an eerily similar situation.

But I highly doubt people will question what difficulty I'm playing on after this game!

Game 3 of Colin Kaepernick's journey in NBA Live 18 took him to a familiar place, Seattle, as he attempts to make the NBA. This game featured a lot more star power than previous pick up games, but the game plan of basic pick and roll plays continued to work. Kaepernick finished up with a solid performance, but did get dunked on savagely by Spencer Hawes.

In a brutal initiation to his dreams of being a professional basketball player in NBA Live world, Colin Kaepernick's ankles were broken by an unknown scrub in a pick up game. At that point, Kaepernicks rating was 66, which was still higher than his QBR for a lot of his games when playing QB for the Niners. He was able to recover and have a strong game of 7 assists and a couple of boards, but so far he's proving himself to be mostly hype and not a whole lot of substance. Let's see what he does next game.

Considering that the real Kaepernick is out of a job, I created a Colin Kaepernick clone in NBA Live 18 to see if I can make an NBA player out of him.

Week 2 of the Denver Broncos Madden 2001 franchise on the ps2 sees a superbowl rematch against the Atlanta Falcons. I did up the difficulty to all-madden but still found it insanely easy to run with Terrell Davis. It appears the CPU tackling is garbage, even on the highest difficulty. I will go through the sliders and manually increase the ability there, but it could also be a result of Atlanta not being a very good team too.
