A video I never get tired of watching

3 04 2009

This has been one hell of an NBA season, with powerhouse teams (Lakers, Celtics, Cavs, Spurs) vying for the NBA title, a new group of future superstars developing by the minute (Kevin Durant, Brandon Roy, Derrick Rose) and the fallout from the sour world economic climate affecting everything from crowd attendance to the viability of teams surviving in their current cities. Best of all, though, is the unreal play we’ve seen day in and day out from the league’s best players: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard.

But when I think back on this regular season, the video below is what will come to mind. I remember during the lockout-shortened ’99 season when Kobe Bryant began showing the ability to dominate games, during a pair of NBC Sunday afternoon contests when he scored 15 and 17 consecutive Lakers points in each game’s third quarter. Even though Bron already showed that ability in his famous Game 5 against the Pistons a few years ago, this third quarter run against the Bucks was one of those moments we’ll remember when his career is over.
