in all honesty, the highlights they chose every time, are horrible compared to other ones that happen that day. gerald wallace had one of the best high flying tipjams last week and wasn't even in the top 10, lebron james had a great alleyoop today, and a reverse layup last week that didn't get in either.
why does nba.com always show crappy highlights? do they not understand people are starting to dislike the website aswell
just watch espn sportscenter top 10 - lebron is always number one, no matter what he does. they like appealing to the casual fan who is amazed when they see him dunk apparently because rarely are his plays number one worthy. fast break wide open one-on-none dunks are not amazing espn.
It appears that the NBA, and most mainstream sports media for that matter, no longer appreciate true basketball. The name on the back is more important than the play itself these days. It definitely is frustrating for the purists, but it sells jerseys
