NBA 2K1 is the second installment of the NBA 2K series. It was developed by Visual Concepts and published by Sega (as Sega Sports). It was the first NBA 2K game to feature online multiplayer and the first game to feature street courses instead of playing a game inside the arena in the first game, famous street courts such as The Cage, Rucker Park, Franklin Park, and Goat Park. It was released on November 1, 2000 in North America with the Dreamcast.
New features were added to NBA 2K1. This includes the new Association, General Manager, and Street modes. The game features rosters from the 2000-2001 NBA season.
In a Japanese release pack, you can get the NBA 2K1 Bible. It basically is a handbook for beginners of the game. It may only have been sold in Japan, but it is more than likely unknown if it was sold in any other country.
Game Informer ranked it 95 on its top 100 video games of all-time list. The staff praised the developers for maintaining the quality gameplay of its predecessor while adding online, new settings, and a Franchise mode.
This is the first game in the series to feature online gameplay.
