During Game 4 of these NBA Finals, Dennis Velasco (a writer for the Nets Are Scorching blog of ESPN's TrueHoop Network, The Basketball Jones and a lot of other high quality stuff) and I discovered in our Twitter conversation that these same Finals are very much like the movie Army of Darkness.
Like the movie, the finals is a battle of good vs. evil that is filled with heroes and villains.
I like the idea of two major forces coming together and making one totally grandiose spectacle, and I’m not talking about a man and a woman making a baby.
Along the lines of concepts in games such as DC vs. Marvel and Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, I like the idea of combining these NBA Finals between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat, with the script of Army of Darkness.
Personally, I think Army of Darkness and Bruce Campbell (you might know him from Old Spice commercials) are very underrated.
In the following slides I will I give you excerpts from the 2011 NBA Finals (sometimes fictional) as based on the dialogue and/or quotes from the Army of Darkness.
For anyone unfamiliar with the Army of Darkness, I recommend that you definitely put it in your Netflix que.
