Without a doubt, the greatest NBA commercial ever made:

Ha! That would be one that's good to watch a bunch of times. Too many things happening, mixing players of different eras, to catch them all in one or two views.
First time I've seen it. Thanks!

Super cool. I like how for the past several years the broadcasts of the NBA Finals would include footage of Russell, Kareem, the famous lay-ins by Doc and Jordan, etc. This sort of video editing wouldn't be appropriate there but it's a perfect idea for a commercial such as this one.

Also by coincidence the LA Times had a slide show of 130 photos in celebration of its 130th anniversary; that commercial reminded me of this one, #82, of Jerry West walking off the court just after the Celtics' 1969 championship (which also evokes the self-tortures he describes in his recent memoirs).
