Ballislife is composed of a lot of video editors/mixmakers including some of the best and most influential like Arek aka MixTapeLive.  So we have a giant appreciation for well edited videos and productions and yesterday’s NBA Forever video made us initially feel like fans of the art when the video started but by the end of it we were no longer seeing the technical side, we were just basketball fans lost in the video and that’s what great editing is about.  The craft needs to be invisible so it can truly tell you an effective story.

Hats off to the NBA and production team that made this video.  It was the perfect apology to every basketball fan that was upset about the lockout and needed a reminder to why they love this game.

Below is my other favorite NBA intro.
