Web site unveils state-of-the-art game for basketball fans
Portland, Oregon – Streetball.com today unveiled its new application for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch bringing streetball instantly to the fingertips of enthusiasts worldwide through the premier game of its kind. Users battle on an urban court, complete with background sounds of the surrounding city.
“With the release of Streetball for the iPhone and iPod touch, Streetball.com captures the attitude and feel of the neighborhood basketball courts and players from around the world,” said Greg Johnson, Streetball.com CEO.
The game, which costs $1.99, features 12 players with different stats and strengths including streetball legend and former NBA player Kenny Satterfield. Satterfield, known as "Serious Satellite" on the playground was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks from the University of Cincinnati and played for the Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers, as well as overseas in France, Greece, Venezuela and Lebanon.
Streetball has a quick on-court tutorial helping users to learn the game. Once they are ready to play, users can choose from four game play modes including Two-on-Two, First to 21, Multiplayer and H.O.R.S.E. In the first three games, users move around with a directional pad and tap buttons to pass or shoot. When shooting, an accuracy meter pops up for users to hold and then release the button at the right moment to sink the shot. Users can compete in the multiplayer mode using Bluetooth or WiFi. In the game of H.O.R.S.E., users match shots with the computer by tracing shapes with a finger in order to duplicate the opponent's last shot.
Apple recently announced that more than two billion apps have been downloaded with more than 85,000 apps available to the more than 50 million iPhone and iPod touch customers worldwide.

Portland, Oregon-based Streetball.com was born from the hearts of Ryan Mendez and David Moseley in 2006. Both were former standout guards at Stanford University who were part of its final four team in 1998. Their passion for basketball led them to start this online community. Their goal was to create a place online where those that love the game of basketball could connect with each other and express their love for the game in their own way. They also wanted to give youth an opportunity to learn more about online technology. Greg Johnson, former Marketing Director of Nike’s Jordan Brand, joined as CEO in the summer of 2009.
