Super Real Basketball (スーパーリアルバスケットボール) is a 1990 basketball game by Sega for the Sega Mega Drive. When released in the US, it was renamed Pat Riley Basketball.

A version of Pat Riley Basketball on the Sega Master System was planned, demonstrated at Summer CES 1990, but ultimately cancelled — a prototype ROM circulates. Had it been released, it would have debuted next to the redesigned Master System II console in North America.

During development, the North American Mega Drive version had the longer name of Pat Riley's Slammin' and Jammin' Basketball.

Gameplay

The game is a 3D basketball game typical for the time. C passes and A shoots the ball when in your possession. When in the opponent's possession, some button — possibly A (TODO) — intercepts the ball.
