The Swingin’ NBA

Back in the day, the NBA was dy-no-mite!

by Lang Whitaker

Linkstigator JE Skeets sent along this You Tube classic of the 1976 NBA Finals. Check out Rick Barry, doing color commentary, looking like he’s straight off the cast of “Hair.” Seeing a young Musberger reminds me of when Kevin Nealon used to imitate him on “Saturday Night Live.”

    Thanks for that one. This is just so great, the outfit and all. Those were the times.

    Wow… the greatest moment occurs at the 56 second mark when Rick puts his hand up to his chin, looks at the camera, and gives it a look like McConaughey in ‘Dazed and Confused’. Intense.

    Check out the sideline reporter’s coat! A prelude to Craig Sager…

    You could pass this off as Brent Barry if Musberger wasn’t in it. I guess there’s not much doubt over paternity with the Barry boys.
