This page details one or more prototype versions of NBA Jam Tournament Edition (SNES).


Players

There are quite a few players in the prototype that didn't make it into the final game.

NBA Players

Portrait Name Team
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Ceballos.png Cedric Ceballos Phoenix Suns
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Ellis.png Dale Ellis San Antonio Spurs
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Ellison.png Pervis Ellison Boston Celtics
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Harper.png Ron Harper Los Angeles Clippers
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Morris.png Chris Morris New Jersey Nets
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Nance.png Larry Nance Cleveland Cavaliers
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Shaq.png Shaquille O'Neal Orlando Magic
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Williams.png Brian Williams Denver Nuggets

Secret Players

There are no known button codes for the cut secret players, so PAR code 7E16CBxx 7E16CC00 (where xx is one of the following) is needed to access them:

Portrait Name Number
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Hey.png John Hey 69
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Petro.png George Petro 6A
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Hislop.png Neil Hislop 6D
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Ivatts.png Reeson Ivatts 70
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Falcus.png Darren Falcus 71
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Atkinson.png Angela Atkinson 72
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto McBurney.png Ian McBurney 73
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Dunlop.png Ian Dunlop 74
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Gray.png Rob Gray 75
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Vine.png Gary Vine 76
NBA Jam TE SNES Proto Hodgson.png Darren Hodgson 7A
NBA Jam TE SNES Wright.png Tipper Gore 99

Note that Gore uses Sharone Wright's portrait as a placeholder.

Interestingly, everyone from Neil Hislop to Gary Vine ARE playable in the Sega CD version of the original Jam.

Graphical Changes

Prototype Final
NBA Jam TE SNES Iguana Logo Proto.png NBA Jam TE SNES Iguana Logo Final.png

The prototype version uses the Iguana Entertainment logo from the original NBA Jam. This was replaced with a new logo in the final version.

Dennis Rodman

Prototype Final
NBA Jam TE SNES Rodman Proto.png NBA Jam TE SNES Rodman Final.png

In the prototype, Dennis Rodman's portrait has black hair as it does in the Arcade version. This final version changes it to white to match his in-game head sprite.

Kevin Edwards

Prototype Final
NBA Jam TE SNES Edwards Proto.png NBA Jam TE SNES Edwards Final.png

New Jersey Nets player Kevin Edwards erroneously uses Milwaukee Bucks player Blue Edwards' portrait. This was corrected in the final version. Blue Edwards was included in the original NBA Jam and the arcade version of Tournament Edition, but not in any the home versions of the latter.

Hillary Clinton

Prototype Final
NBA Jam TE SNES Wright.png NBA Jam TE SNES Clinton.png

Like with Tipper Gore, Hillary Clinton uses Sharone Wright's portrait as a placeholder.

Jay Moon

Secret Player Jay Moon's in-game head sprite is darker in the prototype than the final version.

Team Roster Changes

  • Players with red names indicate roster differences between the prototype and final versions.
  • Players with italicized names have to be unlocked by beating all 27 teams (or by pressing Start, Y, Up, Down, B, Left, A, Right, Down, Start at the title screen, then entering JAM as initials).
