I am old enough to remember NBA on CBS...their halftime shows were fun. But, NBA on NBC is much better than what they have on ABC. The only thing that saves the TNT broadcasts are the Inside the NBA crew and their banter.

No, not just the intro.. The whole vibe about the games being on NBC was much better than it is now..

This has been my ringtone for about a month of so now. Im sure most Knick fans can associate it with the glory days of our team.

Just a great era of bball can be associated with the NBA on NBC.

Just hearing that intro makes me think of the 90's playoffs and all the amazing athletes and battles that were around then. Nothing compares to that era of the NBA.

It was announced on June 27, 2007 that the NBA on ABC had been renewed through the 20152016 season.

Gonna be a while before there's a chance of that happening:(.

NBA on NBC rocked, take the old NBA on NBA then throw Inside the NBA after it and you got a perfect product.

In a few years, probably 2020+, people will be saying they miss the NBA on ABC and/or TNT.

It happens.

Wow you guys must be pretty young. Check out the old Lakers vs Celtics championships of the 80s on you tube. CBS was and is the best network for Basketball. The excitement level was off the charts. NBC was not even close. Brent Musberger, Hubie Brown great on CBS, the crowd shots, the music, the players facial expressions were genious. Look at how good CBS does the ncaa Basketball Final Four. They are still the best at this sport. Im hoping NBA goes back to CBS after this contract.

NBA on NBC the best thing I've ever seen because it was the best basketball ever....none of the showing boating **** that happens now and players actually played for the game and not for the money. I love TNT's studio crew though.

I added this song to the half time music in NBA 2K11 for certain arenas. I never regret hearing it play.

awesome. So much better than NBA on ABC/ESPN crap. And that theme must be the most recognizable sports theme of all time next to MNF

The CBS theme music was the Best and most recognizable! The 90s had the worst television graphics and by far the worst NBA basketball ever played. Only 1 great team Bulls and no rivalries either.

Best intro song ever. Someone should sing a song with music like that playing in the background, oh wait...

But in all seriousness, I'm only 19 but I remember the NBA on NBC. Those were the good old days

Growing up a bulls fan with the NBA on NBC, it brings back memories. I just watched the NBA on CBS intro, and I must say, I like the NBA on NBC one better.

NBA on NBC was where it was at back in the day, I remember watching my 1st NBA game on NBC in 1990.
