The NBA Finals kicked off (or should that be “tipped off”?) Tuesday night, and the whole affair was more overblown than Snooki’s hairdo.
Start with the ridiculously melodramatic promos for the series, like this one:
Then there’s the amateur-hour Miami Heat PA announcer (example here, but – seriously -don’t waste your time):
And finally, Mark Jackson’s PREPOSTEROUS (good name for a rapper, yes?) commentary. Vintage sample:
Mix in the promo of LeBron James holding the championship trophy (Bad Luck, Will Robinson!!!), and you have a hypefest of epic proportions.
Just like the Miami Heat, come to think of it.
And we haven’t even gotten to Mark Cuban yet.
