    Don't know if anyone saw this but I think it's interesting. Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

    @jadande: Cavs stole the Rockets’ “Dream On” pregame video…only Houston’s is way better. You know, with the championships and all

    @jadande: this is the Rockets’ version. Might be my favorite pregame video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulO8inW46DM

    Rockets video department gets a ring if Cleveland wins. Les is happy and can call himself a champion.

    While I don't disagree with this (it is a really good pregame video) I haven't seen very many other pregame videos so I can't really compare.

    They didn't post the Cavs' version anywhere? It would be interesting to see how similar it really is

    Great video...but also a little depressing to see how far we've fallen as a franchise...

    Obviously hard to speak for all 30 teams, but I've been to about 6 other arenas in the past 5 years, and it really blows all of them out of the water.

    So what. Rockets aren't using it for anything.

    Yeah, I'm biased but that was poorly executed.

    haha @ the CAVS version.

    A few notables about our version, WAY more Yao than T-Mac. Not a single shot of Pippen. :)

    Like 1 dunk form Otis Thorpe.

    They could have added Thorpes one man fastbreak handling the ball like a grapefruit.

    Maxwell prayer buzzer beaters against the Warriors and Heat.

    Should have added a few of Horry's dunks.

    I don't think they even showed Yao block and dunk in first meeting with Shaq. If i recall, they just had a still image of Yao next to Shaq.

    Some missed opportunities.

    4 straight playoff appearances with a Western Conference Finals appearance. Yeah they fell off so hard.

    They had one underachieving season. The franchise is just fine.

    Re: Caeser

    I think you may need to watch the video again:

    Edit: I always laugh when I see the Von Wafer dunk. Definitely was awesome when it happened, but I'm not sure it belongs

    I love it, it gives me goosebumps - even though I am incredibly biased.

    Question - does the Horry dunk count as offensive interference? It is video game levels of awesome but is it legal?
