Worth the money
on February 7, 2007
I loved watching these games, all five games of the 1991 NBA Finals between the Lakers and Bulls. Games 2, 4, and 5 have the classic "NBA on NBC intro", something I was not expecting after reading some previous reviews for it. There is pre-game talk before each game, which gives it some flavor of what to expect for each game. The quality is much better than I expected from games recorded 16 years ago.
If anyone purchased the Chicago Bulls: 1990s DVD, one will notice there is 20 + minutes of extra footage on game 5, the clincher. More pre-game and locker room footage. It is not made to fit a 2 hour time frame for NBATV or ESPN Classic. That is a plus to me because the celebrations are entertaining.
I noticed in game 3 that it is not 100% the full broadcast. They chipped 30 seconds, and it's easy to tell. This probably happened a few more times, but if so, it's hard to tell. They did what they could I suppose and it didn't take away too much from the game.
The bonus sixth disc is the Learning To Fly video. This is also on the Chicago Bulls: 1990s DVD, just in case anyone is expecting more. I figured it to be the case when I purchased it.
The box itself is cool. The front is the boring Bulls logo, but the back has the 1991 team on it. Very nice. In the three cases for the 6 discs, each side has game statistics for the particular game. Very similar to the
2005 White Sox World Series DVDs. I'm a stat freak, and it was helpful in following the game.
Like I said, I'll buy any Bulls Finals releases that come out. I'm already waiting for the 1992 NBA Finals to come out, and eventually I hope all of them are released.
