NBA '06: Featuring the Life Vol. 1 is a basketball video game which was released on October 4, 2005 for the PSP and November 1, 2005 on PlayStation 2. It is the 1st installment of the NBA: Featuring the Life series by Sony Computer Entertainment. The product features Phoenix Suns power forward/center Amar'e Stoudemire on the cover. You may also compete in a new feature the PlayStation's Skills challenge. Not in any other NBA games.

The Life[edit]

This mode is a unique feature to the game and you take role as an NBA rookie. First, you must create your player and then go to pre-draft training camp of your favorite team.(You get to choose). After that you go to the draft and get picked by that team. Next is summer leagues and then eventually pro games. During those games you have to complete goals like scoring a certain amount of points or holding their star to no steals. If you fail at least one of the goals you have to start the event all over again. So if your player scores 100 points but fails to block someone( if to block someone is a goal) you will be forced to start the challenge over.

Marketing[edit]

Amar'e Stoudemire and P.J. Carlesimo appeared in commercials featuring three fictitious failed NBA players:

  • Billy Joe Cuthbert - A physical defender and hard worker whose fouls and injuries shortened his NBA career. Plays pick-up games while wearing 1980s-era clothing, coaches kids, and hopes to play professionally again.
  • Jason "Sweet Money" McDaniels - Liked to shoot, just couldn't. After his NBA career fizzled, he worked in an office.
  • Sergei Vogavich - A Russian player whose attempt to transition into the NBA was a dismal failure. He was described as being big...and that's about it. After basketball, he moved back to Russia to work at his uncle's farm.
