Ball Don't Lie - NBA

NBA suits have been putting out some amazin', so amazin' commercials as of late, and — surprise, surprise! — they just dropped two more killer spots.

(Quick note to Blazers and Pistons fans: You might want to just skip this post.)

Pimping the '09 Western Conference Finals, which start up May 19th, this first commercial features Kobe Bryant(notes) throwing that famous alley oop to Shaquille O'Neal(notes) in Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference Championships. The visual effects are incredible.

Well, ahem. So much for thinking I was getting halfway decent with the ol' Photoshop. Damn.

And here's the Eastern Conference Finals spot, featuring the Celtics' iconic "now there's a steal by Bird!" moment in Game 5 of the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals against Detroit.
