NBA Elite 11 is a mobile basketball video game released by Electronic Arts (EA) for iOS.[2][3] It is the only installment in the NBA Elite series that was to succeed EA's NBA Live series, which was intended to be continued for the 2013 season.

A release of the game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 was scheduled for October 5, 2010, but was cancelled due to "concerns about gameplay polish".[4] Previously, a download code for NBA Jam was to be included with copies of Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of NBA Elite 11, but NBA Jam was subsequently released as a standalone game for both systems and the Wii.[5]


Controls were retooled to primarily use the right analog stick for actions such as shooting. New animations were also added.

NBA Live 10 commentators Marv Albert and Steve Kerr were replaced by the ESPN crew of Mark Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy, and Mike Breen.[6]

The game was to feature the debut of "Become Legendary Mode", a single-player career mode similar to "Be a Pro Mode" in NHL and FIFA and "Superstar Mode" in the Madden games.[7]

The iOS version features a 3-point shootout mode, season mode, playoff mode, and play mode.

The game's soundtrack was produced by 9th Wonder and rapper J. Cole and was going to include the song "The Plan."[8][9]
