|ESPN.com: NBA Playoffs 2014||[Print without images]|
Nothing beats a live game.
Adrenaline pumping, perched on the edge of your seat as that LeBron James steal morphs into a streaking No. 6 jersey and elevates over the glistening coat of polyurethane-coated hardwood before crushing the ball through the basket to the simultaneous hollering of 20,000 of your newest, closest friends.
Together, you stare up at the Jumbotron to relive said moment.
Except you didn't have a very good view of the Jumbotron -- because you're not at the game.
