Nothing like an end-to-end sequence in the Eastern Conference semifinals in which Larry Bird dishes through your legs for an easy assist and then swats you on the other end for the steal.  Jack Sikma, this is your life.

Yup.  Sundizzle NFL Countdizzle, Contizzles.

John Tesh's chills-filled version of "Storytellers" where he actually plays us a message he left for himself on his answering machine the day he discovered the magical ingredients for the NBA on NBC theme song.  Additionally and amazingly, there is an entire orchestra there to assist Tesh in celebrating the catchy jingle.

The night Paul Mokeski challenged Michael Jordan, hit the deck … and never got up.  A close second to the 'Nique-Bird duel in '88.

The greatest, most graceful three-pointer ever taken.

There aren't many certanties in life. But it's no secret that Asheville manager Joe Mikulik hates second base.

An ironic moment for sure, as Herm Edwards and winning are about as harmonious as Rich Kotite and supermodels.

    Hmmm, that Bird pass and steal, you mean there really was basketball once? We’ve heard of it but didn’t know it was real.

    Am I the only one that thinks the guy on the guitar in the Tesh video looks like Nick Saban with a lady hair?

    I think that’s actually Nick Swisher.

    Oh wait, you’re right. That dude is a dead ringer for Saban. His compadre in blue is Swisher.

    Three things about that Nerf Dunk video killed me:
    1. The joy on Kev or Brandon’s face after he successfully PASSED THE BALL for an alley oop Nerf Dunk at the 0:33 mark.
    2. The totally staged finger roll rejection at the 0:41 mark.
    3. The song “This is why I’m hot.”

    Thanks Kev, Brandon and, of course, Seth for everything else.

    im glad you gave credit to Seth… his contributions have been neglected for far too long.. he is the Rick Rubin of Nerf Dunk videos (and a real pussyhound from what ive heard)

    I’m not a big Metallica fan, but to hear this much pure damage done to what was obviously originally a decent recording, in the mistaken belief that it sounds good, is hard to stomach.
