Not in any other NBA games.
This mode is a unique feature to the game and you take role as an NBA rookie. First, you must create your player and then go to pre-draft training camp of your favorite team.(You get to choose). After that you go to the draft and get picked by that team. Next is summer leagues and then eventually pro games. During those games you have to complete goals like scoring a certain amount of points or holding their star to no steals. If you fail at least one of the goals you have to start the event all over again. So if your player scores 100 points but fails to block someone(if to block someone is a goal) you will be forced to start the challenge over.
