In other words, awesome!
Unless you've got the desire to go out and buy countless DVD box sets, DVR everything on NBA TV and have kept the old VHS tapes that I know you all meticulously used to record nationally televised games from the 90s, it's incredibly difficult to get ahold of classic basketball games.
So far iTunes offers games from nearly every era of basketball, including; Game 4 of the 2000 Finals, Pistol Pete's NBA debut, Game 1 of the 1997 Finals, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's NBA debut, Game 6 of the 1984 Finals, Game 7 of the 1987 Finals, Michael Jordan's "Shot on Ehlo", Moses Malone and the 1983 Philadelphia 76ers, and an old Bullets-Knicks game.
In other words, I just spent $20.
Obviously this is a tiny selection from nearly 60 years of professional basketball, and the league's got a long way to go before it makes everybody happy, but I figured I'd help them pick out their next wave of games to sell via iTunes.
