Parts of this film are pretty spectacular. I loved the Jason Williams and Vince Carter sections. Those stood out. There are some others that are good, too. Then you have kind of a mid-range coverage of some players that deserve more. I've seen better Kobe and Iverson highlights on the NBA Action TV show. They could have done better with this. Not bad, but they just don't capture the real talent here and kind of leave you disappointed. Also with this film they included a few players who've never been anything but hype. Grant Hill? Why are they still trying to push this guy on us? He just doesn't excite, and I really wish they didn't waste time on him. They do a little section on Tim Hardaway too, as if he's a new talent. He's a friggin veteran, man. The real low point of the film is that they incorporate old dudes into it at every section to show what the NBA used to be like. It's fine when it's about Magic, or Isiah, or Pistol Pete. But it drags you down into sheer boredom when they spend 3 minutes on Bob Cousy, or Daryl Dawkins, or Elgin Baylor...zzzzzzzz. Get back to Ray Allen and Steve Francis, neither of which were showcased well. In short, this could have been done a lot better. Too much slow motion and background history and commentating about crap nobody cares about, and not enough action. But hey, NBA video's gone to pot. Still, this is not the worst one I've ever seen. I wish they'd stick to the Michael Jordan's Playground format. Tons of action that keeps you on the edge of your seat goin...DAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN! I guess that's too much to ask. Anyway, there's a good chance you'll enjoy a lot of NBA Now. Just don't expect to be totally blown away.

The Showmen of Today video is satisfying if you really enjoy watching the big name superstars in basketball today. They did great features on Kobe, Shaq, and Allen. And my absolute favorite was Vince Carter! The video kind of took the game of an old-school player and compared it to a new-school player with some similarities. My only question is: Where was Kevin Garnett and Tracy McGrady? They could have used the segments on Tim Hardaway and Grant Hill to cover them.

Kobe, Shaq, Vince, Allen...this latest video from the NBA gives true insight into the stars of today. The excitement of present day NBA is directly attributed to these "Showmen". I think the title says it all, these guys are the "NBA NOW!" Also, the features on Ray Allen, Jason Kidd, and Steve Francis are tremendous.

while it's cool seeing Steve Francis,Ray Allen,Allen Iverson&Vince Carter the Main ones for Me were My Laker Cats Shaq&Kobe which got there Due here.also Jason Kidd was given His props.I liked the Footage from back in the day&I dig when the NBA goes back because they haven't always acknowledged the past near enough to my liking always.A Cool Set here.
