I'll be honest. The soccer sub-theme was great, but with these sports-themed sets, I felt like Lego's heart was in the right place, but something just seemed off about them.

Having said that, I really liked the idea of really urban-themed skate parks and street basketball sets. Just as scenery for your larger city setting.

It’s kind of peculiar to me that even on the NBA figures that weren’t likenesses of specific athletes, many of them had the same “boardwalk caricature” style (large mouths with sharply defined lips and eyes with whites/sclerae instead of simple black beads with a white sparkle). That turned me off from them, though I liked the playability of the spring-mounted legs and arms that could actually grip a ball. And at least the caricatured traits weren’t as overtly racist as the pointed eyes and huge noses of the native Americans from the Wild West theme…

It’s kind of a surprise and a shame that of all the sports the collectible minifigures have depicted, there hasn’t been a basketball player!

@Lego Lord Mayorca man you beat me to it!

Man LEGO Sports was something else, I loved the skate park builds for city displays and of course all the balls were useful for playing with figs, but some of the minifig designs were... off. I'm glad The LEGO Movie gave them more standardized faces.

I couldn't resist, @MataNui2009! I never owned a single Sports set from 2003 (aside from parts to one of those hockey players, via a garage sale haul many years later), so I don't really have anything to contribute to the discussion as far as owning them goes. Didn't help that basketball was never my sport, so the appeal of it in Lego form, regardless of execution, was non-existent.

I think I got this set just for the mini basketball that came packaged with it.

I remember playing 3432 with my older brothers back in the day. And it felt very cool, actually. I liked a throwing technique

Is this the set that inspired the best scene from The Lego Movie?

Tbh, the biggest reason I never liked these figures was because of the print on hair. Seeing it around the stud instead of covering it just looks so weird and ugly
