Excerpt: The graphics for NBA Live 2001 are basically the same from the year previous. Not that that's bad, but nothing really improved graphics wise. My guess would be that they were busy worrying about some other system... hmmm, PlayStation 2?!! I'm not kidding either, I think they basically copied last year's version, and updated a couple things here and there. The announcers were another part I could have done without. The play-by-play kept up, but they were so dry.
