Product Description

Amazon.ca

Perhaps more than any other sport, basketball is a star-driven event: Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Dennis Rodman, Shaquille O'Neal--the list could go on and on. But it's not necessarily these athletes' overall careers that we remember as much as the breathtaking individual plays these illustrious men have given us. Is it possible to break down a hundred of these greatest moments in NBA history? The NBA's 100 Greatest Plays certainly tries.

While last-minute heroics tend to be the standard by which we define excellence, there are many other moments that have left an indelible impression, many of them highlighted here. The video clips fall into 10 categories: Dunks, Alley-oops, Assists, Steals, Blocks, Teamwork, the Clutch Shot, Moves, Hustle, and Buzzer-Beaters. At the beginning of each section is a brief introduction. Before showing the top 10 dunks of all time, for example, we learn about the evolution of the dunk--from the first slam to the man who could fly, Michael Jordan--and we hear background commentary from NBA legends such as Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley, Dr. J, and Bill Russell. This video recalls familiar moments of NBA lore that you will want to own for countless repeat viewings. --Jeremy Storey

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome highlight collection May 1 2004
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for basketball junkies Nov. 24 2002
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced, and dubious choices Aug. 23 2001
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but could be better May 1 2002
Format:DVD
ok, so its not the easiest thing to sort out and calling it 'possibly the nba's 100 greatest plays' wouldnt be a good idea but they could of done a better job. there is with out doubt a few judgemental errors on what is greater (the impossible task) and plenty missing. the stuff on there is good but often its a bit unclear why its the greatest, number 10 sometimes look the best while number 1 may just have been the most important. the blocks are probably the most accurate ranking and the dunks well they might as well of given up.
for i cant for the life of me, figure out why vince cater didnt make a single dunk spot on the recent-clips extra on the dvd let alone get all ten (you seen his reverse one handed 360?).
the comentarys are good, giving little bit more to the dvdand magic johnsons allways good for a giggle when he talks about jordan and so forth
my advice is to buy it but expect to find yourself a little confused as to the rankings.
