Dr. J and Larry Bird Go One on One (also called One On One Basketball) is a game originally released on home computers and then for the Atari 7800 and ColecoVision.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Control either Julius Irving or Larry Bird in front of a single basket, in a game of one on one. The user can select to play either to a certain score or for a certain amount of time. When on offense, the player can rotate to keep away from his rival, take a shot from a distance or move in to the basket for special up-close slam-dunks. When on defense, you can try to take your rival's ball or jump up to block a shot. Particularly good set-ups get a slow-motion replay. You can even smash the glass on the backboard, which will send an irate janitor onto the court to clean up the mess.
