That was very well done, and I'm glad I got to relive some of those moments. A few things I really liked/noticed about the video:

-I really like the "changing of the guard" angle, from Bird/Magic to MJ. It really shows the competitiveness that fueled/fuels them
-Nice tribute to Chuck Daly. Amazing for a coach to be able to handle all of those egos back then. It would have been a tougher job than it looked.
-I love seeing Charles Barkley walk around town at all hours of the night. That's what I would have done back then too.
-Being around high level competition, I really liked seeing the best in the world. I liked how MJ walked around the olympic stadium to get inspiration from all the past athletes.
-Wouldn't it have been cool to have been Chrisian Laettner?
-I like how Stockton didn't get noticed walking around in public
-Even though there was a bit of "americana" placed in to that, it still was an amazing experience. I liked how they showed that it helped basketball grow to what it is today, and helped fuel the international game (nice Bargnani cameo, too). Some people have this debate about sports all of the time, but even if the best whoops other teams, you still eventually end up with a better product, as other teams want to get to that point...that's the point of sports, to be the best, and compete against the best.

I suggest that everybody - of any age - watch this, to either relive those times, or see where our roots (in basketball) come from (especially before it's taken down from youtube) Thanks again for posting!
