Although the NBA season is not happening, you can still have NBA gameplay on your iPhone with 2KSports NBA 2K12 for iPhone. This iPhone NBA simulation game is top notch featuring all 30 NBA teams, a plethora of game play/game modes, including Jordan challenges.
If you’re looking for an arcade basketball game like NBA, then keep on looking because NBA 2K12 for iPhone is much more realistic and requires strategy. A very cool feature this game has is 1-touch controls, which I never got into because there is a bit of a learning curve here, although I suspect once the 1-touch controls are figured out, that it increases game satisfaction.
