YouTube’s greatest NBA mixes??

The following videos are actual YouTube mixes of real life NBA stars players.  Keep in mind, someone actually sat down at their computer and spent a good amount of time creating "highlight" reels of these legends people.  We salute you ‘Lucious Harris YouTube mixer’, we salute you.  Without further ado…

Shane Battier
An emotional John Tesh-esque montage kicks off this mix for noted street-baller, Shane
Battier, before finally giving way to a blistering highlight reel of crisp chest passes,
fundamentally sound lay-ups and help defense switches — all set to Jay-Z.  Brace yourself?.

Key Highlights
1:27 ? Battier pulls off the unthinkable, putting his hand up near his man’s face on defense.  OHHH SNAP!!!
1:56 ? Battier blocks a dunk, yet somehow manages to get facialized in the process, as he FLIES to the ground, violently landing on his back.
1:59 ? Battier sinks an absolute bomb of a jumper, from almost 10 feet away.
2:58 ? Battier throws down a thunderous uncontested lay-up!  BOO-YA!!!!

***

Eric Dampier
Appropriately titled the Eric Dampier ?Never Give Up? mix? (Yes, never give up.  Well, that is until you get a ridiculously bloated multi-million dollar guaranteed contract… then yes, feel free to give up).  Hold on to your seat here, as you are treated to a dizzying array of uncontested, soaring dunks from 6? inches away and victimizing numerous midgets with blocked shots.

Key Highlights
0:49
? An absolutely ferocious lay-up (the likes of which that can only be seen at any top level JV high school game in Thailand).
4:04
? The end of the mix.  If you?ve made it this far, kill yourself.

sure to stay tuned for the emotional finale at the :45 mark)

Lucious Harris (seriously…)
Has anyone dominated the NBA highlight reels over the past 10 years more than Lucious Harris?  This roundball renegade has been drawing literally dozens of fans to New Jersey over the years, all just dying to catch a glimpse of this one-man rim wrecking crew.

Key Highlights
0:42 ? Hard to tell exactly what?s happening here (considering the action is coming so fast and furious) but this appears to be Lucious being pulled out of the game.
0:53
? A nylon-scorching layup on the fast break that will blow your mind.
1:02
? Lucious tucking his shirt in while the straps to his facemask dangle like mudflaps. Breathtaking stuff?
3:38 ? Psychedelic dream sequence of Lucious holding up the NBA Championship trophy (wish we were kidding).  Once again: Lucious Harris. Holding the NBA Championship trophy. Say it out loud…

Sheldon Williams
Few players are more worthy of a YouTube mix than this emerging NBA superstar, who averaged a deceptive 4 points and 3 rebounds a game last year.  It was hard to cram all the highlights from his first two years in the league into this mix, but we think they got it…

Key Highlights
1:25 ? Sheldon uses shirt as a pacifier as team walks off court for time-out.  NBA Action!!!
2:50
? Sheldon throws down uncontested dunk and appears to get tripped up by an invisible gremlin of some sort, breaking his leg in the process.  YAHTZEE!!!
3:04 ? Sheldon successfully trots backwards without falling.

And for a more accurate Shelden Williams mix, feast your eyes on THIS masterpiece…

    If they had Youtube when I was 12 I surely would have made a Cliff Livingston highlight reel to rival these

    How come there isn’t a Ronny Turiaf mix? Surely someone must have discovered the heart with which he plays the game and documented it in an epic 2:38 long youtube video…

    I laughed. I cried. I mailed a check to the Georgia Tech Alumni Association.
