Hype videos before NBA games were once things of beauty. Works of art. Greek tales of winning and losing, pride and effort. They were movie trailers made about an event about to happen, with either team cast as both the hero and villain.
This one in particular stands out. 1992, Bulls vs. Knicks: Game 7.
The game was pretty good too.
