Happy Friday, and happy NBA Appreciation Day!  What I have for you today is a compilation–not a mix, but a compilation–of a prime Desmond Mason soaring through the Milwaukee, Seattle, and New Orleans skies for a variety of jaw-dropping slam dunks.  While it’s not the longest video in the world, and it may even leave you wondering “well where was his ____ dunk?”, I think you’ll appreciate the video’s high-quality nature and all-original commentary.  Be sure to turn up the volume, because the legendary voice of former Supersonics commentator Kevin Calabro can be heard throughout…

What a fine way to start the day… a little hip-hop era throwback, and in HQ!  Crystal-clear videos from Mason’s time period certainly aren’t easy to come by, so for finding these clips I would like to thank Youtuber saners88, the uploader of the video.

A great mix is certainly something to behold… but there’s nothing quite like a classic highlight paired with its original audio to make a basketball fan feel nostalgic.  I was initially planning to post this D-Mase video, but I had to roll with the compilation instead.  It was simply too majestic not to be shared.
