Unlike most other basketball video games, there is only an exhibition mode in this game where the player can play as either the Harlem Globetrotters or their long-time rivals, the Washington Generals. The player can even pull down the referee's pants or trip the ref when a free throw has been called when playing as the Harlem Globetrotters.[2]
