No contest - Nba on Nbc

If there was any way to get it back... I think I remember NHL fans getting their hockey theme song back with enough requests or something?

I always liked the classic NBA on TSN theme song back in the Rod Black days.

NBA intro was the best in sports, maybe even TV

no contest. NBA on NBC is CLASSIC!
that theme song sound so right, for me it embodies 90's and early 2000's basketball for me. from jordan, kobe/shaq, duncan/robinson, webber/bibby, that was great basketball.

everything seems to have been better in those days when you look back from basketball to hip hop....

NBA on NBC, no question. In somewhat related news, Bill Walton is coming back to commentary. Albeit on a local level, with the Kings.

The NBA on TBS was also great. Just listen to this funky bass! Oh, nostalgia...

I really like the ESPN one. It sounds really professional and kind of pumps me up. I'm a REAL espn fanboy so I'm biased. I don't mind NBC's because it's legendary. But I also really love TNT's, not because of the song necessarily, but because I'm used to hearing Ernie talk over it with Kenny and Chuck! Love those guys haha!

But the ABC one is terrible. Wow.

My rank:
1. Espn
2. NBC
3. TNT
4. Anything else
5. ABC

To me I always thought the TNT song is a bit all over the place, like playing the NBC one backwards or something

Stuck between TNT & NBC.
ESPN isn't that bad but ABC's is horrible!
