NBA JAM 2K17 is an awesome fan made rom hack that updates the roster of the greatest basketball game ever made and allows you to select players from all 30 of the current NBA teams, as well as legends such as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, and even wacky secret characters such as Harambe and Donald Trump!
NBA JAM’s fantastic blend of 2 on 2 arcade basketball, crazy effects, silly secret characters and awesome voice samples made for one of the greatest multiplayer sporting games ever. It’s a little strange that EA haven’t tried to build on it (bar the well received 2010 release), as it was remarkably popular and is still the fifth biggest earning arcade game ever released. Thankfully though, dedicated coder Ethan Miller has just released an awesome fan made rom hack that updates the entire roster of players to current ones, adds three official teams that were missing from the original, adds a few graphical tweaks and a new selection of basketball legends and silly unlockable characters.
Not only is NBA JAM 2K17 a great reason to revisit the joys of NBA JAM, but the dev has also released it to raise awareness of a good cause. The developer is a survivor of testicular cancer, and is planning to run a marathon to raise funds for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. You can support his cause (and show appreciation for an awesome NBA JAM update) via the official website here and learn more about his story here . We wish Ethan the best of luck, and sincerely hope he slam dunk’s that marathon funding target!
