    just watched it, and twice in a row. couldnt watch it yesterday because i didnt want to watch it piecemeal while watching game 2 of the finals.

    good documentary. but honestly wasnt as good as i'd thought. maybe i was expecting too much...

    it wasn't on yesterday. you are getting the clutch city (old doc) vs the new one which came out today.

    if you don't see Rudy T and Dream in a restaurant, then you watched the old one

    huh? wasnt it supposed to come out on nba tv last night?

    but the one i just watched did start with rudy t sitting w/ dream in a restaurant. it also had like a 30-minute preview b4 that. so that WAS the new one right? at least i had not seen it anywhere b4.

    thanks for clarifying that, tinman.

    some parts were pretty good, and dream slapping max was sth. i didnt know about. some footage, i wonder how they got those.

    but overall i only give it maybe a b+. dont know exactly why. maybe i was expecting too much since i knew it was coming out and heard too much on 610.

    So the moral to the story of the Clutch City documentary was that if MJ was in the league, the first season, and played the whole second season, we would have never won. What a crock of ****. They just had to add that in there, to end the show at that. Fkin BS...

    I was narrating it to my GF. I knew exactly what was gonna happen when they were showing the highlights. I remember those series, and games like they were yesterday.

    Is it long?
    Did they interview Thorpe as well?
    New footage or most used from the original documentaries?
    Which audience did they cater to: regular fans or Rockets fans (probably the former since Kenny is overly present as always)?
    Anything else leading up to it or after the documentary by NBA TV worth mentioning?

    No Thorpe, Maxwell, Elie?? Kenny and Hakeem twice?? Who made that, official NBA created?

    Maybe a thread with all the photos they created especially for this documentary / commemoration?

    Best part for me was when Clyde got traded and then told Rudy this is a dream come true, I used to watch you in the stands.

    My thoughts exactly. I thought we'd get more personal footage of the players preparing before games. We've all seen these clips before
