Tecmo NBA Basketball was a basketball game developed by Sculptured Software and published by Tecmo. The game consists of many different real basketball teams that the player can choose from. The player can also choose what kind of game they want, how many players, and more. The game got pretty good reviews. The game was later released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Genesis under the name "Tecmo Super NBA Basketball".

For a game made in 1992, there's barely any music. Paul Webb, main audio composer at Sculptured Software and George Sanger (who in this game goes by his famous alias The Fat Man) came together to put together a pretty decent. The intro music and menu music both have a good rock feel to them. The only downside is that the in-game music can get annoying since it's a pretty short song. The SNES has the same issue, except there is another variation of the song so the music isn't as repetitive. Paul and George wrote MIDI files together and their music was later converted into Ken Moore's sound driver.

Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
