good dvd, but don't get over hyped
on February 29, 2004
After dealing with so-so streetb*** dvd's, the National Basketb*** Association has released a collection of DVD highlights ranging from Geoge Mikan to Lebron James!
-Some of the players are listed as followed: Amare Stodamire, Vince, T-MAC, KG, Shaq*, Yao, Kevin Johnson, Iverson, Marbury, SPUD WEBB!, Dr. J, Dominque, Jordan, Jason Richardson, Shawn Kemp, Baron Davis, Desmond Mason, Ray ***en, J.O'neal, Finley, Corey Magette, Darius Miles, Ricky Davis, Clyde Drexler, Connie Hawkins, Darrel Dawkins, and many others.
-As many of you have noticed Kobe Bryant (one of the best dunkers of our time) and many other great dunkers were not mentioned on the list. Some, because the names are not exactly recogizable but many GREAT dunkers were left out. Now, to be fair one can't expect every great dunk or player to be on an 84 min. dvd. Hence the label VOL. 1.
-Another complaint with the dvd is that there are just too many plain dunks. They (among others) dragged on single player segments with dunks that would not even warrant ESPN's highlights. Oh, and between every chapter there is a retard giving us nerve racking introductions. The last complaint I have is that the only enjoyable Special Feature is the 1985 dunk competion featuring: Jordan, Dr. J, Dominique, Larry Nance, Clyde Drexler, & several others. The rest where highly disappointing.
-Nevertheless, this dvd was a solid purchase that I would recommend to every NBA fan. Just don't expect it to have every great dunk you have seen. Hopefully VOL. 2 won't be a let down. To end on a positive note, this is presently the best bastketb*** DVD on the market. The NBA has also released another series titled "Ankle Breakers."
