Video: Belief in Basketball

The most memorable Playoff moments are the ones with emotions attached. All-time hoops memories come with all five senses, preserving each moment in our brain exactly as they happened. And with the 2011 Playoffs poised to contribute even more to our mind’s cinema collection, let’s look at why the NBA Playoffs consistently produce the greatest emotions in sports history.

    Two things :
    one : wonder what the 76ers would have done with AI in the roster.
    two : the kobe to shaq alley-oop was one of the greatest play of our time.

    Very nice edit. I like it.
    To all the guys that wonder how their team would have played if A.I. was on it. Remember that he left the NBA because he wanted to be the team and not be part of it.
    Team cancer. Sad to say it.

    @c spence, funny you say that I got so hypnotized by the video that they could have snuck in some ridiculous quotes and I wouldn’t have known…

    Hard to believe it’s been 10 years since AI was in the finals. Getting to that point where there’s kids posting on here that probably don’t even remember.

  • gani

    Eh, the More than a game one last season was better. Quotes weren’t very audible, music was too loud in comparison and I dunno, I wasn’t feeling it.

  • Fat Lever

    How are they going to have AI on there without the step over of Lue? Violation.
