    I liked the ones they had used the past few years, but they had their flaws. This one, on the other hand, is pretty much perfect. The only complaint I have is that "Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion" isn't in it.

    That gave me the chills. Agreed on the 'getting better every year' aspect of the video.

    Great stuff.

    i went to the game as well, and when i want in i was ready to boo tmac, but when i saw this vid, i felt bad, because he did give 100 percent for years, it made me almost want to cry to think that yao and tmac careers were affected by injuries.

    and when i looked across i saw tmac watching clips of it too, and i know something must have been going on in his head. after that, i was probably the only person in the building who cheered when he checked in the game.

    the guy was incredible throughout most of his career with us. and that video made me realize it.

    Thanks for that! It was really well done. I loved watching everyone, whether it was the legends "before my time," or the current era boys--who have just as much heart but usually not the same luck. They all just bring me joy and make me proud to be a fan of this amazing ball club.

    I'm glad no one is around me when I watch it, because for damn reason, I always get dust in my eyes. Glad I wear a hat to the game too.

    I loved it, it gave me chills during the season opener, Kam and nwo34life were just speechless when we watched it.

    A few things I just noticed after pausing it a few times

    - Loved how they showed the bench players that don't get much love at times, Hayes, Wafer, Herrera, Lewis Loyd, Novak (no Bonzi though)

    - they had one clip where they showed the Barrys, Rick, Jon, Brent in one slide, then showed a clip of John Lucas, then Lucas III right after, one thing missing there was Major and Charles Jones, unless I missed it

    - Wished they included the Maxwell 3 he made to send it to OT vs. the Heat in the 94-95 season? that was one of the most improbable shots I've ever seen

    - not too much of Mobley, but plenty of Francis and Barkley, happy there was not one single mention of Pippen

    - the freeze slow motion shots of the Shaq/Yao stare down and Francis dunk from the dunk contest is awesome

    44 is a good number :) Thanks for sharing Clutch

    Edit: am I a total girl for saying that made me tear up?

    Chills, man.

    Love this team. All the trials and tribulations we go through as a fan base, at the end of the day, we love the hell out this franchise.

    Man. That was pretty epic.

    Loved the clips they used.

    Man, I miss that 04-05 Tracy and Yao. They were unbelievable. Now....both seem to be a shell of their former selves......what 5 years does to a team and it's stars. :(
