One of the most exhilarating aspects of the NBA, doesn't even involve the gameplay itself.
Pre-game vignettes of the various teams are always a sight to behold. The orchestrated blend of music, video, and pyrotechnics come to life in a stunning spectacle created to introduce the home team.
The fans come roaring to life, as their favorite players are introduced right before their very eyes.
At the same time, the spectacle will utterly intimidate any fans who dare to represent the away team.
Some cities do it better than others though, as the teams on this list all have one of the best pre-game rituals found within the league. It wouldn't be fair to judge one over the other, so you can decide who ultimately has the best opening theatrics.
So open up a separate tab so you can view the best of what the NBA has to offer.
