Does anyone else think they are fantastic? Last season, the commercials were very boring and bland, in my opinion. They were just a bunch of pictures saying "Where (insert positive word/phrase here) happens." Plus, the background music was just dull. This year, it shows some of the best plays we've seen in the postseasons of the past several years, and the music really just gives me chills. My personal favorite is the Celtics' commercial:

It wasn't dull they did the whole 1 half of two players faces put together thing. Pretty creative imo but this years is also good.

Ohhh yeah that's true; I forgot about those. Those were great. I was referring to the other "slideshow-like" commercials that they also showed last season.

I hate "Where ------- happens" commericals.

Yeah those were the ones I was referring to. They were extremely boring and poorly put together, in my opinion.

the split faces with two players were the greatest commercials of all time.

"There's so many emotions at the end of the season... and nobody like to talk about it. But one of those emotions, is fear. Fear that you've come this far, and it could all end, the dream could die. But me? I like the fear. It means I'm close, it means... I'm ready." gives me chills.

LOL the music is virtually the same as the last commercials ! The song was called "everyday" by Carly Comando .... now its always going to be known as that nba commercial song ... the new "where will amazing happen " ones feature the song "Fly" - by Ludovico Einaudi.

It was in the soundtrack of the Truman Show, not by Carly Commando, she ripped it off.

Despite JJ's 8 steps, it's easily the sickest by far IMO

LOL, I was just thinking to myself which clip would be picked if the Bulls had one of these commercials, and that play came to my mind first. Imagine BG grabbing his nuts in slow motion.

It's similar, but it definitely isn't "virtually the same." It's MUCH more bone-chilling
