NBA voiceover clips volume #5

In the wake of Melo-gate, I’ve spent an inconceivable amount of time youtubing clips of NBA fights, brawls, jawing matches and the always appreciated unintentional comedy of cameras recording what they’re not supposed to. A special shout out to David Stern for not going all Zuffa on us with the “©” and allowing us fans to access NBA clips (and rightfully so). Thanks to the related video sidebar, ITSREAL85 has just gained a loyal follower.

Steal of the Week: ESPN 30 for 30 Limited Collector Set

ESPN Films did an amazing job with this series. A lot of big name directors stepped up to the plate to pay homage to lesser known but monumental sports stories that have occurred since ESPN launched in 1979. John Singleton, Spike Jonze, Ice Cube, Barry Levinson, and Morgan Freeman are among those who give us more in-depth accounts of topics that were not fully explored at the time they broke. My personal favorite was “Without Bias,” which chronicles the touchy subject that is Lenny Bias’ death. I was more or less a baby at the time of Len’s death. Before seeing this documentary I had no ideaI of the impact his sudden passing had on the Celtics as a franchise. 22-yeard old. NBA’s No. 2 overall pick. Chance to play with the Celtics OG Big 3. multi million dollar contract with Reebok. Brand new sports car. Dude had the world by the balls. Gone before he even got started. 22 year championship drought followed for Boston. An American tragedy. Very well done film by Kirk Fraser. 

Amazon has the entire 30 film series currently listed at $49.99 shipped here

Boston Celtics 30-5…

bigthreesizevh0.jpg

Hard to believe. At this time last year, their record was 11-24. Up until about a week ago it looked as if they were gonna flirt with the Bulls’ record 72-10 season. Now it seems they’ve put it on cruise control and are saving some of that energy and intensity they had early on for the playoffs. I was at opening night against the Wizards on Nov. 2nd. Click the big 3 above for a video of the introduction & starting lineups on that night. I don’t think there has been a more hype crowd for the Celtics since the ‘Boston Garden’ days.

A long time coming for the Celtics…

With all the hype surrounding the World Series Winners, the Boston Red Sox and undefeated New England Patriots, Boston fans have to big up Danny Ainge and Boston Celtics’ front office.  Shaking up the roster in the off-season with some veteran star power (Garnett and Allen), they’ve made the Celtics possible contenders and put them up there hypewise with the Sox and Pats.  Also notable is the reinforced bench with Posey, Eddie House, and “Big Baby” Davis.  Check out this sick mix of of the team’s 2007-2008 squad.  Stay tuned for more Celtics highlights.
