13 Basketball Movies To Get You Pumped For The NBA Playoffs!
The NBA Playoffs are heating up. The play-in games are happening and it’s starting to get super exciting! Our Philadelphia 76ers had their best season since the 2001 season where Allen Iverson and company reached the NBA Finals. That team ended up losing to the super stacked Los Angeles Lakers team that consisted of Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant. Oh yeah, Phil Jackson was also the head coach of that squad. That team ended up winning 3 straight championships. Let’s get away from the bad news.
That 2001 Sixers team was led by Allen Iverson who won the NBA’s Most Valuable Player Award. This year, Joel Embiid is most likely going to win the Most Valuable Player Award. See the similarities? That’s really where it ends.
Our 76ers open the first round of the playoffs against our rival Brooklyn Nets. The Brooklyn Nets were stacked with talent at one point but all of the stars requested to leave. Last year, superstar point guard was traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Sixers for every Sixers fan’s favorite player Ben Simmonds(can you sense the sarcasm?) This year, Kevin Durant asked for a trade and he ended up with the Phoenix Suns. Star guard and overall weirdo Kyrie Irving asked for a trade and was dealt to the Dallas Mavericks. The Sixers should absolutely dominate this series and probably will sweep the Brooklyn Nets.
Everyone is kind of looking past the Brooklyn Nets and focusing on a second round series with bitter-rival Boston Celtics. The 76ers finished in 3rd behind the Milwaukee Bucks and those darn Boston Celtics. If you are a Sixers fan, you can’t stand the Boston Celtics and that green shamrock logo.
To get everyone pumped up for the NBA Playoffs, I wantedto put together a list of some of the best basketball movies to ever exist.
