NBA Pinball By Stern of 2009 at www.pinballrebel.com
Although the game has new code and artwork the playfield layout
is borrowed from an earlier design. This was most likely done to
speed development time
and to reduce costs in the slower economic times in which the game was
released. Still sports like basketball are a great theme and will
the casual player in the tavern or bar and the home gameroom
owner. Several current stars of the NBA are featured on the glass
Pinball Glass has many different players from various NBA teams.

a set of MVP drop targets, and a basketball goal with a magnet that

Note the various mode lights around the spinning disc.
The pop bumpers have artwork to make them look like a basketball going
through a basket. These bumper caps would be a neat modification
to order for other basketball themed pinball games.
A good effort by Stern to use and existing layout and deliver a title
that will appeal to many.
