    Forgive me if this is the wrong forum. I put it here instead of the Classifieds because I'm not trying to sell anything....just alert fellow fans of a great deal.

    Amazon has a father's day sale going on now, and they have discounted all of their NBA related DVD's, including the complete 1994 Finals (all uncut games):

    http://www.amazon.com/NBA-Houston-Rockets-1993-1994-Champions/dp/B000ION24Y/ref=pd_sim_d_1

    They also have the 86 Finals for $19.99, even though they edited out the Sampson fight. Sucks that we lost but at least I don't have to track down viedotapes or youtube mixes to see a young Hakeem anymore.

    They have these sets on special for the other teams too (for some of those undercover Laker fans like francis 4 prez....just jokes man), and I almost got suckered into spending all my damn money to cover the 80's and early 90's, until I saw this bad boy for $19.99:

    Enjoy. I figure this should help me while I wait for football season....

    I'm still waiting for the 1995 set. I'll pay any price for that.

    I just snagged a copy...only 13 left. You get free shipping if you spend $25 so I bought the Hakeem Hardwood classics DVD which was only $11.49.

    Edit: Here's something interesting that I did not know until I read one of the reviews of the DVD set:

    "I'll let the Houston fans comment on how important it is to have this series released on DVD. Of greater interest to me is that Game 5, which occurred simultaneous to the OJ Simpson Bronco chase and had NBC switching away from the game to coverage of the chase while showing the game in a corner, is presented here completely OJ free. For the sections of the game where NBC broke away, Marv Albert and the rest of the announcers are silent, but you do see the game action continue to unfold without distraction, and I'm glad they released the game in this way that those of who taped it originally could not experience."

    They should have the OJ chase as an Easter Egg.

    It's 54 Euro for the whole set. That seems to be the price for all of their sets.

    Have you ordered any of these? If so, are they just the full games or what? Good quality?

    FYI, if you in Houston, check out the Only 99cent store, I've seen the Hakeem DVD there with a few of other Hardwood Classic DVDs (100 amazing plays, Patrick Ewing, Barkley)

    Would love to relive the entire playoff journey.

    Updated quality? Like what?

    Well, I just rethought the prices and seeing how most of these box sets are $50 and above (USD), the prices on your link really aren't that bad. I was comparing those prices to the sale prices on Amazon. The only thing I don't like is that it's the same price for a series, no matter if that's 4 games or 7.

    You can always get the games individually (maybe just the
    Rocket wins)

    oh and when I say 'updated quality' I just mean its good quality to the point that you know your watching a DVD, not just an old VHS that has been converted.
