    wrong. the code given to unlock presidents actually unlocks the beastie boys instead. also here’s a tip i picked up. the code ESP NSN in two player mode unlocks the espn team.

    Thanks for your kindness. :-)
    I have updated the code, and added your ESPN one.

    Can I ask a weird question? I haven’t gotten NBA JAM for Wii yet, so I don’t know this for certain: Can you save all the teams you unlock by button combo or initials only (i.e., is it possible to only enter the codes once per save file of NBA Jam)? I’d love to be able to have all of those players available at a moment’s notice and not have to enter that code for that team more than once!

    Not a weird question. Yes, the unlocked teams are saved.

    All of them? Even the ones I enter the button codes and the initial codes for? Nice, thanks!

    I beat classic campaign with a team from each division in west and it did not unlock the 1 shot fire. Does anyone know why it didn’t unlock or do I need to do something else
