    Very few. Neither EA or 2K offers basketball for DS. So those it does get, are often shovelware.

    The best is Mario. But that's not saying much.

    Honestly, DS has been rather poor at sports games compared to other handhelds.

    The only one I can think of is that horrendous Mario Hoops 3-on-3

    well i liked madden and fifa this year but that's not the point.
    the ds is rather poor when it comes to basketball and hockey in general

    Actually I happen to like Mario Hoops 3 on 3. I mean doing an alley-oop with my teammates from across the court, was surprisingly em-powering...
