That was the 'thug' era. If you wore a du rag and baggy pants, you could be a over-hypeded underachiever and still sell jerseys/have fans give you love. Good thing D Wade and LeBron came around with their good morals and ethics.
I might pop in Live 2002 and play with em though because they were fun in the game. And Keyon Dooling was a rookie on that team.
