With the NBA season just under a month away, fans around the world are preparing for what should be another great year. The late summer months are oftentimes the worst couple of months for basketball fans as nothing notable happens. Long gone are the big name free agents, and the few left unsigned are generally either veteran role-players, or end of the bench fodder looking at cracking an NBA roster.
Luckily for fans, the NBA has been releasing videos recapping last season’s action, one of which include some of the best plays from last year. Included are some of the jaw-dropping dunks by the likes of LeBron James and Blake Griffin as well as a plethora of late-game heroics displayed by Derrick Rose, Carmelo Anthony and others.
The NBA labelled it the ‘top 10’ plays of the 2011-2012 season, but as good as some of these plays are, I don’t know if I can say that I agree with some of the rankings. Surely, Carmelo’s late-game threes could not have been any less difficult than Kevin Love and his game winner. The same can be said for Gerald Green’s windmill slam, which although outstanding should probably be below LeBron James’ dunk over John Lucas.
Of course, this is all based on opinion and what I’d love to know is what you think. Let us know in the comments below and check out the video at the link below.
