    There is Slam Dunk a manga (not sure if it got an anime), and that's about it.

    There are other sports anime though. Baseball (Princess Nine), Tennis (Prince of Tennis), Boxing (Fighting Spirit), Race Car Driving (Speed Racer/Initial D), Golf (Dan Doh), and of course Pro Wrestling (Metal Fighter Miku/Ultimate Muscle). There is even a Football manga (again not sure if it got an anime) called Eyesheild 21 (which I hear is really off the wall).

    Probably a coulple of others out there that I don't know about.

    Picture some of the best NBA playoff games ever, except in Dragonball Z (no, not the blonde hair and flash like movements, the horribly slow pace). If you don't mind manga I suggest reading the manga instead, it is so much better. In fact, Slam Dunk was rated the best manga ever in some poll.

    There's another basketball anime out there called Dear Boys that was made pretty recently (well, 2003) but I heard it wasn't really that good.

    p.s. I can see you like Chris Paul. My favorite player was TJ Ford, but that was before he was traded to the Pacers.

    Eyeshield 21 is my favorite sports anime followed by Prince of Tennis. I personally didn't like Slam Dunk though (only watched 2 episodes).

    yeah Slam Dunk is pretty good. I don't really care for basketball much (or any sport for that matter... sorry!) but I read this manga. It's currently being serialized in the American Shonen Jump magazine. and I remember reading that is was THE most popular manga in Japan not that long ago. More popular than Naruto AND DBZ. So yeah. it's good.

    Well, they had "Prince of Tennis", which was a total disaster (how many times can you see kids take fifty thousand steps to reach a ball?).

    So, why not have a show called, "Jack of Basketball", replete with dribbling galore? I'm sure it'll do MUCH better!
