I'm hoping my fellow MGoBloggers might be able to help me out:
I have a 12 year old son who has become a huge basketball fan this past year. He plays PG for a city basketball team where we live in Ulsan, South Korea (안녕하세요). This is my proud-father opportunity to mention that he was tournament MVP for the last two tournaments.
I coach his team, and we spend a lot of time talking basketball. It has developed into one of those marvelous father-child opportunities that parents cherish. It's been fun introducing him to the basketball of my youth - 1989 Championship, Fab Five, and the Bad Boys.
He is especially interested in the Fab Five (having seen the doc and having read the Mitch Album book) and the Bad Boys. I have searched tirelessly for downloads of games for either team but can't find anything that is current and being seeded. Is there a specialized but less publicized place to find older sports downloads?
Does anyone know where I can download or watch any Fab Five or Bad Boy games? I would be very appreciative and you'd make my Trey-Burke-uniform-wearing-Michigander-boy-in-Korea very happy and connected to his home.
EDIT: and for discussion purposes, which games do you think would be the best and most essential viewing?
Fab Five - it is painful just thinking about the finals loss to Duke and NC. This game is the only game that we could find, via YouTube and extra low-quality. The 92-93 Kentucky game was classic. Which Fab Five victory do you think would be essential viewing?
Bad Boys - really the greatest era of the NBA. Clashes between Bird's Celtics, Barkley's 76'ers, Magic's Lakers, and that one guy named Jordan. Many classic series. I'm trying to find the 1988 Pistons loss to the Lakers in game 6 of the finals - the phantom foul game. I believe that was one of the classic NBA serices, with the Pistons losing in 7 games. Argh. But the next two championships sort of eases that pain. I'm also trying to find one gave vs. the Bulls (1990), Celtics (1988), and the finals vs. the Trailblazers (1990).
