Video: TNT’s NBA Playoffs Promo

The NBA Playoffs are right around the corner, and to get you properly fired up for the postseason madness, the good folks at TNT put together the clip above. Linkin Park, sadly, provides the soundtrack.

    Uh oh, Bosh’s new flame thrower hands could be the added advantage Heat need to secure a championship.

    Shout out to flame thrower armed Dinosaurs

    Also notice, the only person on the Spurs (Parker) got about a half second in the promo. People continue to sleep on the Spurs.

    @Rainman, Tim Duncan got a quick shot around the :17 second mark. Parker had at least two shots of him one right in the middle with his ring around the :50 second mark and one at around 1:28

    expected better from TNT. Then again, most of the time the band/artist/song choice is terrible, so this year is not any different. Linkin Park is terrible. And the fire, the flames are ridiculous. Who directed this crap, Michael Bay?

    @Gerard Himself – Nah, there weren’t any helicopters or lens flares. Couldn’t be Bay…

    Westbrook exploding @1:40…. is that some type of metaphor?

    linkin park is awesome

  • Pais

    Linkin park only made one song ever, and then slightly tweaked it 1000 times giving it a different title each time. I even kinda liked that 1st song, like 10 years ago.

  • Hernan

    So… where are the Spurs in this video?
    Have no respect at all for these champs team…
    Don’t mind… you won’t have no choice in the finals…

    @ Pais: Is that song by any chance “Numb”? Pretty much.
