Cheat mode: Select "Cheat" at the "Option"
menu then enter one of the following codes to activate the corresponding
Master code: Press Triangle(2), X(2), Square,
Circle, Square, Circle. Note: Although this
code unlocks everything, you will lose the ability to perform
breakdown moves because you are stuck on "Always On Fire"
mode. This will cause a problem at Harlem Side Game 4, when you
need to perform a breakdown to advance. Making Breakdown moves
also earns a lot of respect points. Rocky Mak.
All side games: Press Circle, Square, Triangle,
X(2), Circle(2), Square.
Nickname: Use the following trick to get a nickname like Rafer
Alston had "Skip to My Lou". Play Story mode up to NY
City's Main Run. This is the game where your nickname will change
to one of 100 random nicknames that Duke Tango knows. You will
get your name at the start of the second half of Main Run 2 and
will see it changed on your character. If you do not like this
name, restart the game and play to the second half again to get
a new one. Once you complete the Main Run you will be stuck with
the name. Rocky Mak.
Hint: Recommended 3-on-3 team: One of the best 3-on-3 teams that you can have when
you first start is Hot Sauce, Spyda, and J.K. Hot Sauce can do
all of your tricks and alley-oops, Spyda can score a ton of points,
and J.K. can hit 3-pointers. However, mostly J.K. can stuff the
snuff out of people going for a dunk or lay-up.
Hint: Mics and breakdowns: If you are playing a timed full-court game, make sure
you use up any mics you have earned. The respect bar and mics
will reset to 0 for both teams at the start of the second half.
