I've recently, in the past few years, become obsessed with basketball. I paid a lot of attention to the last few seasons and I'm already paying attention to the pre-season right now. Every season has these amazing, incredible, jaw dropping moments, ones where me and all my friends or the bar I'm at are all screaming "NO WAY!" at the television. I'm looking for a spectacular display of basketball. A fierce rivalry. Crazy shots, last minute shots, amazing layups, incredible steals, exacting passes. Just... the best basketball game ever. What is it? Who were the characters? What was on the line? I need it.
