A little known basketball based video game of the film with the same title was developed by High Voltage Software and published by Atari Corporation, released exclusively for the Atari Jaguar on August 1, 1995. The game recieved terrible reviews. Also released on the SNES, Genesis, 3D0 and MS-Dos was a game called Jammit (Aka: Street Ball) that was referred to by critics as a very poor man's version of NBA JAM featured a non playable final boss team that heavily resembled Billy Hoy and Sidney Dean of White Men Can't Jump.

Billy trash talks to George during the basketball tournament that he "schooled" him once before. They never played against each other, they only played with each other on the same team in the first game in the movie against Sydney. See more »

All I care about is getting out of the Vista View apartments, because there ain't no "vista", there ain't no "view", and there certainly ain't no vista of no view.

This is a truly excellent movie! Lots of people have bashed it as a "basketball" movie, but the truth is, it ain't about basketball at all. It could have been hockey, dart playing or curling, it wouldn't matter. It's about human weaknesses and making new friends. Rosie Perez gave probably her best performance ever, and the interplay between Harrelson and Snipes is great. Don't miss it.
