NBA Forever Video: TNT Opens Basketball Season With Amazing Intro

Just before the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics got the 2011-12 NBA season underway at Madison Square Garden, TNT unveiled a mesmerizing video mashup of past and present NBA greats dubbed "NBA Forever."

With the song "Live Forever" by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors providing the soundtrack, the montage of modern and old-school players features Derrick Rose playing with Michael Jordan's Bulls, Dirk Nowitzki guarding Larry Bird and even LeBron James dunking on Julius Erving.

Personally, my favorite part is when the low-key Tim Duncan is chats it up with Bill Walton, but there are plenty of incredible what-if moments to choose from, including Derrick Rose's fist bump with MJ; Magic Johnson dishing to Kobe; Wilt Chamberlin blocking Dwight Howard; and Patrick Ewing chest bumping Amar'e Stoudemire.
