TheManRoom has posted an interview with Senior Producer, C.J. Connoy, as they talk about NBA '06.
TheManRoom: "One of the key yet sometimes overlooked features for a basketball game to succeed is the ability to play tight, realistic defense. What have you done in NBA ‘06 to achieve this?"
C.J. Connoy: "On ball defense has been overhauled in NBA ‘06. When designing the game, we decided that the current NBA game status quo was about the “brick wall” or “ole!” solutions to basic defense. Either the ball handler is stopped cold or he flies right by. The real NBA is neither of these. We came up with a concept we call, “Skitching.” True defense is about preventing a ball handler from getting to his desired spot (for a jumper or seam to attack the basket)."
