1980s/90s Flashback


Anybody remember this bad boy? Oh, it was gold. And look, you can still buy it! Each superstar had a highlight reel played with a "cool" song from the late 80s played behind it. You had:
  • Mellencamp's "Small Town" for Larry Legend
  • Magic with Janet's "Control"
  • A young Chuck Wagon, a Philadelphia Wagon, with "I am The Warrior"
  • Even Kool Mo Dee got in the act for Akeem with "How you like me now"
  • "Take My Breath Away" for a pre-title winning Jordan

Thanks to loyal Hacks reader Chach for remembering this classic. Awesome!

Unfortunately, the NBA Superstars Part 2 featuring Derrick Coleman, Brad Sellers, and Fennis Dembo didn't catch on.

Great video! While we're on the subject, what about Dazzling Dunks and Basketball Bloopers...you might remember hearing Frank Layden say, "This is my favorite part." Classic.
