    To understand this, we need to rewind.

                This was a hard game, lakers fan forever and Shaq was my all time fav. It was one game i didnt root for anybody. Kobe is my 2nd fav ever, this was one of those games.

                  I like the videos except they all seem to end all of a sudden right at the climax... It would be nice to have an extra minute for a final take of what happened and the aftermath.

                                Did any other Suns fans see that 23-3 record and immediately burst into tears or was that just me?

                                      am I the only one who found the ending of this video hilarious? The way the narrator was hyping up the shot and the anti climatic miss make for comedy gold

                                          In a sea of NBA videos, your videos are by far my favorite. You're knowledgeable, your videos are intelligent and your cadence isn't abrasive or robotic like so many others. Love your stuff and the topics you choose. 🤙🤙🤙

I don't like swimming that much but that was the most amazing finish to a race ever seen, even the announcers were in disbelief

                                                          This was one of a series of games where I realized as a Heat fan that Wade was more than merely great, and that somehow my favorite player on the team WASN’T going to be the newly acquired Shaq I grew up loving lol

                                                          I mean I loved Shaq, but Wade was just so damn confident and incredible from the start.

                                                                How about ARods last game? I would come from the angle of what a disgusting display of bullshit it was and how he wasn't retiring and nobody, even the Marlins, didn't want him and he had been a laughing stock of the league for a long time leading up to it... But you do you.. I'll love it either way.

I'm impressed you really set the scene for this great moment even thought he didn't make it. Most other content creators would have passed on this for just that.

Rookie LeBron held up, but TMac was on the sending end of whatever message he wanted LeBron to receive that day
