The NBA regular season is dead. Long live the NBA regular season.
With the playoffs scheduled to start this Saturday, basketball fandom is about to reach a fevered pitch—that annual rite of spring where you’d rather shut the blinds and flip on the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs than go outside and partake in the sunlight and oxygen you’ve deprived your body of for the past six months.
Why start now?
But we’d be remiss if we didn’t do our darndest to compile some of the best, most ridiculously athletic and physics-negating plays of the 2013-14 regular season. Some of them you’ve no doubt seen. Others, you may have missed during one of your 500 snow-shovel workouts. That’s why we’re here.
So brush your teeth and put on your Wednesday best. An Irish sweater and Hammer pants is fine. Because you have a hot date with some smokin’ basketball plays. We’ll even give you our number.
