Customer Reviews

There are players from the past like Julius Erving and present day players.
M Neary
It's a good dose of historical NBA plays and some rare gems that won't show up on other NBA films.
Daigo Parry
I am a great fan of the NBA (mainly the 80's)...This DVD was perfect for me to see and enjoy.

The most important thing to remember when thinking about buying this DVD is that it was released in November of 2001. Many of today's stars were still young rooks: Jason Williams (c'mon, he did have some highlights early on), Vince Carter, etc. Tracy McGrady, Kobe Bryant and Shawn Marion were still just on the verge of the current run of super-talent superstardom.
It is an extremely ambitious thing to proclaim that you have picked out the Top 100 plays of all time in the NBA (these are broken down into Oops, Blocks, Steals, Dunks, Assists, Buzzer Beaters, Clutch plays, teamwork, hustle plays and moves, all presented in Top 10 format). That said, know that the plays the producers of this DVD have selected aren't based on the Ooh-And-Aah Meter, but rather a combination of Ooh-And-Aah and historical significance. For example, a Jordan buzzer beater to win a game in the playoffs will carry more weight than a flashier Jordan buzzer beater in a nothing game in the middle of the season.
For example, a spinning, over the head dish by Bob Cousy that is simple by today's standards is included in the Top 10 Assists because of Cousy's importance to the development of "necessary showmanship" at the point guard position. But the producers aren't just history buffs; they do know their ball, and there are some flashy plays mixed in with the important ones. The team work, hustle and steal Top 10s are among the weakest on the DVD (how flashy can a steal or hustle play really be? These are the ones that rely heavily on "historical importance.").
Each section has a mini-documentary that delves into what team work, dunking or assists are all about, built on interviews of NBA legends and current stars, with doses of highlights from those categories.

Format: DVD
The title oversells this DVD, which includes 10 top plays in 10 different categories, from dunks, assists, and teamwork to clutch finishes, moves, and steals. Sure, there's no way one could select ten top plays in any of these categories without some controversy, but it's totally unclear what criteria were used to select these 100 plays. Some are selected for historical significance--for example the top steal of all time is Havlicek's. But at other times some completely minor play will be selected. And some of the categories overlap and could probably have been excluded. I would have preferred to see more assists and dunks and fewer steals, which are important plays but fairly unexciting to watch as replays. Lastly, the production values aren't exactly top notch--even some of the modern footage is grainy, and the Dolby 5.1 soundtrack is unexciting.
It does contain some of my favorite plays. The top dunk on this DVD is Jordan spinning baseline against two defenders and then dunking over Ewing. The DVD includes quite a few historic plays shot in grainy footage, which is good if you're interested in hoops history. The DVD also definitely has a Jordan, Magic, Bird, Dr. J bias, which I guess is to be expected but which some might not appreciate. Still, I would have appreciated this much more if the production value were higher, more plays were included, or if the DVD cost ... less. At this price it's a rental.

For all of you basketball fans who love to watch all the highlights and most exciting plays on SportsCenter, this DVD is for you. On this DVD there is a collection of the 100 greatest plays, divided into ten categories. There's some nice music to add to the great highlights. It's really a cool collection, which provided lots of entertainment for me and my brothers. Some of the sections were alley-oops, dunks, assists, clutch plays, buzzer-beaters, hustle, and moves. It was really cool to see some of the amazing plays I've never seen before. Some of my favorites:
-A buzzer beater by Jerry West from past half-court, and that was back in the day
-an amazing sequence of 3-pointers by Reggie Miller to win the game in the playoffs
-the gravity-defining dunks of Michael Jordan and Dr. J.
-Manute Bol with the most blocks in one minute and Hakeem Olajuwon with the coolest block
-an amazing layup by MJ
-an awe-inspiring shot by Larry Bird at the buzzer
-Rex Chapman throwing up a prayer at the buzzer
And much more!

This is a fantastic video for any basketball junkie suffering through those long summer months, or during the slow regular season when most NBA players are merely cashing in their pay checks on the court.
This DVD has always impressed those poor unfortunate souls who I torture by forcing them to watch it. Julius Erving's "Rock the Baby" slam dunk over the Lakers in 1983; Larry Bird's clutch steal against Isiah Thomas in the '87 Eastern Finals; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's magnificent sky-hook; Magic Johnson's no-look passes; and Michael Jordan's entire career.
Plus, you get the legendary calls from the hyperventilating play-by-play guys: Chick Hearn, Brent Musberger, Johnny Most, Marv Albert and (to a lesser extent) Bob Costas.
"The NBA's 100 Greatest Plays" is a little out of date now (it was released in 1999) and if you're a basketball fan from Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago or Boston, you'll undoubtedly enjoy it more than if you're a Grizzlies fan.
Plus, there are a few questionable calls here. I really don't think Bill Walton belongs anywhere on this DVD (unless it's him getting posterized by Dr. J) and the shortage of Allen Iverson footage is criminal.
All in all, if you're a basketball junkie that needs a fix, "The NBA's 100 Greatest Plays" will do in a pinch.
