Last year, the NBA released a series of commercials for the 2008 playoffs “Where Will Amazing Happen” which actually didn’t rank on my Top Sports Commercials for 2008 countdown. Mostly because there were a few other NBA related commercials like Jordan’s “be legendary” and T-Mobile/Charles Barkley’s “Fave 5” that stood out more.

This year, they came back with a sequel “Where will Amazing Happen…This Year.” Doesn’t win points for originality but the series was so good last year that no one is complaining about it being brought back around for 2009!

I’m also throwing in “Basketball is Like Chess” which is not part of the same “Where Will Amazing Happen” series, but it is an NBA 2009 Playoffs Preview Commercial, and I really liked it.

I chose three Amazing commercials to feature: Michael Jordan, Kevin Garnett and LeBron James.

And….. there are three spoof  “Where will Amazing Happen This Year commercials” that I just loved! They didn’t actually run on TNT or anything, but they so should have. I found them on YouTube and to be honest, without them, these NBA Playoff commercials would have been ranked more like #7 instead of #5. These feature….. The Karate Kid, Hoosiers and…Teen Wolf! Too funny!
