The Cavs have the only intro video in the NBA that features an authentic performance by a major recording artist. That already makes it one of the most creative videos in the league. Throw in the pyrotechnic fire effects on the ball, in Anderson Varejao’s eye and in Kyrie Irving’s hands (somebody better make sure those guys didn’t suffer serious burns), and you’ve got yourself a basketball highlight real and mini-music video all wrapped up into one. (Check out our interview with the creators of the Cavs’ video)
