Ranking the NBA's Most Entertaining Game Introductions
The following video slide will show 10 of the most entertaining game introductions in the NBA so far this season.
Whether it is a cool video, a fireworks show or bringing back great players from a franchise's past, player introductions get the players and the crowd fired up and ready for the game.
Watch as teams find the most creative ways to introduce the players that the fans came to see.
10. Boston Celtics
Are you a Celtic?
If so, you will love this intro video from the season opener this year.
9. Cleveland Cavaliers
This is Cleveland.
This is a good video that was shown on the night of Kyrie Irving's home debut for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
8. Washington Wizards
A great video with fans and cheerleaders make this introduction worth it.
The announcer is pretty excited about the Washington Wizards at this point in the season.
I wonder if he still gets this excited before games now.
7. Miami Heat
On the lights.
This is the intro video for the Miami Heat this season.
Personally, I like the Back In Black video better, but that is just me.
6. Chicago Bulls
Watch as the running of the Bulls destroys the Memphis Grizzlies' team bus.
This introduction of the Chicago Bulls is good, but there is a better one higher on the list.
5. Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers present their intro video in true Hollywood fashion on the big screen.
The reminder of franchise success and the signature "I Love LA" song from the '80s finish off this introduction strong.
4. Utah Jazz
No home opener is complete without an indoor fireworks show.
Turning the spotlight onto the players is not bad, either.
3. Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers rank high due to the way they incorporate their franchise history.
Not only do they introduce this year's team, they introduce everyone they can think of.
2. New York Knicks
Who needs the Jumbotron when you can play the video on the entire floor?
This one is good even if you are not a fan of the New York Knicks.
1. New Orleans Hornets
It is hard to beat player introductions done by actor and comedian Will Ferrell on '80s night in New Orleans earlier this season.
If you remember the '80s, you will love this introduction.
