It is easy to overreact and kneejerk about the greatness of a game, but last night’s Game 6 of the NBA Finals should go down as one of the best games in the history of the league. As an individual basketball game it had everything you wanted. When you factor in the names, the stakes and the legacies on the line it is the stuff Hollywood Films are made of. Regardless of how Game 7 turns out, Game 6 will be a huge part of either narrative.
NBA.com has a feature where they recap the games using only clips from their Phantom slow motion camera, add some dramatic music and the results are amazing.
There is so much captured in the video, but the best part has to be the moment captured above. The exact moment LeBron James’s headband was knocked off.
