Best NBA Intro Ever [VIDEO]
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.
