What do these ratings mean?

Well, give yourself a dumb nickname and start bricking jump shots, because the Tour’s latest stop is on the PS2 and Xbox in Ubisoft’s And1 Streetball. And just like the real thing, it’s all style and no substance, an oops without the alley. 
 
Streetball isn’t about winning so much as it’s about mad dunks and crazy handles. And1 tries to accentuate this by introducing the I-Ball control scheme, which turns the right analog stick into a juke machine. With eight-way directional input that can be modified via the left stick and the ‘turbo’ button, there are a slew of sweet moves to bust out on the poor shlub standing between you and the basket. Performing tons of jukes earns ‘respect’ points, which are converted into ‘mics’ to enable either going “On Fire” (NBA Jam should sue) or the game’s “Breakdowns,” which require you to be standing in the right spot while pressing the trigger buttons.
