This NBA on TNT intro is the best I've ever seen.  It blends present-day basketball players with old-school legends.  It's amazing.

TNT unveiled this NBA intro for its coverage on Christmas Day.  It's a fantastic idea that was executed brilliantly.  My favorite moment occurs at the end when Michael Jordan gives Derrick Rose a fist bump.  I also love Larry Bird delivering a pass to Ray Allen for an open three.  Wilt Chamberlain blocking Dwight Howard and then giving him a love tap is pretty sweet too.

Everything from the intro featuring Paul Pierce with the old-school Celtics and Kobe with the Showtime Lakers, to the final image of Michael Jordan and D-Rose bumping fists, this video is unbelievably well done.  I haven't seen a better intro, for any sport, ever.
