GameSpy has posted their preview of NBA '06.
"I knew NBA '06 had something going when my British colleague was into it. He doesn't know Grant Hill from Grant Morrison, yet he kept raving about how cool the game's "drama" was. While I wouldn't dare use an effeminate term like drama when discussing a sports game, this is the perfect example of why this title might succeed. It appeals to sports buffs that want to play an 82-game season of NBA basketball, but it also appeals to those mildly interested in the sport but are attracted to unique story-driven experience. I'm psyched that 989 is attempting something truly different to compete with EA and 2K. If you can't beat them at the standard game, then you might as well change the game and attempt something interesting."
