NBA Player introductions are total cheese

We here at The Big Picture have a long-established distaste for the NBA so imagine my own surprise when I found myself watching the beginning of last night's NBA Finals Game 3. I tuned in just in time to see the Magic's player introductions. I forgot how, aside from the BCS, these introductions might be the worst thing in sports. Bizarre mascots and cheerleaders descending from the rafters on wires, crazy lights flashing all over, highlight videos, the list goes on. It's one thing to do it for the finals, but we all know this kind of nonsense happens before most regular season games as well. Yet another reason to tune out the NBA.

I agree 100%....that is why I posted something on my blog last week showing how the player introductions were done back in 1985 during the Finals...

I HATE these player introductions with all this hoopla shit...also, some arenas even bring in a motorcyle...what the fuck does a motorcycle have to do with basketball?????

Stiles, if you don't get the relationship between motorcycles and basketball, then I can't help you!!!

People are idiots and are impressed by this shit.
