A Must Buy For Celtics Fans?
I ordered this right after The Celtics beat LA in game 6 to win the finals but I was a little worried when I heard it was only an hour long. The good news is the 60 minutes that it claims on the box is a mistake the highlight film is about 76 minutes long and that 16 minutes makes a big difference. Up until the playoffs, The finals especially, there isn't a whole lot here as the regular season takes up about 20 minutes of the DVD. Also there isn't any discussion on how other teams seasons and playoff series went like the older videos use to have. But once this thing gets to the finals it becomes worth it. Partly because of The Celtics winning but mostly because of the Lakers losing. Some of the faces you get to see on Lakers faces make this a great DVD to own. There are some cool special features. The fourth quarters of the game 7 versus Cleveland and the fourth quarter of game 6 versus Detroit. And several other short features. So is it perfect? No. Is it worth it? Yes definitely especially if you shop around. Don't pay the $24.99 that NBA Shop wants. I got this for $14.95. I hope the NBA puts out a 6 DVD package of the finals until then this is a very good recap.
