Midwest Sports Fans:
I just received this text message from our very own Jon Washburn:
please post the video I just tweeted up on MSF…the greatest basketball video I have ever seen.
Coming from Jon, a certified basketball fanatic, saying it’s “the greatest basketball video” he’s “ever seen” is quite high praise. I was thoroughly intrigued to watch the video and am posting it on MSF, so it must be pretty good.
And it is.
What you just witnessed is a bunch of Chinese dudes, who love them some Indiana Pacers basketball, reenacting some of the greatest Boom Baby! moments in Pacers history.
Some people do war reenactments; these guys do Reggie Miller reenactments.
I don’t know if it’s quite the greatest basketball video I’ve ever seen, but it’s a thoroughly entertaining sixty-nine seconds of pure Pacers bliss, so certainly worth posting.
But now my question to you, dear reader, is this: what do you think is the greatest basketball video ever? Post below, and perha...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Most of you have probably heard at one time or another about the Chinese penchant for recreating in stop-motion animation certain major events in the world of sports– the most recent being a fight between a Chinese club team and the Georgetown Hoyas on their tour of China this summer.
It looks like the guys at ChinaPacers.com have taken things a step further, recreating Hall...
Personally, I didn't know that the Indiana Pacers had a big Chinese fan base but I guess we learn anything from this crazy world of the Internet, they do. Watch as these Chinese recreate some of the best Reggie Miller moments of all-time: (Courtesy of Midwestern Sports Fans)
I live in Indiana, and while I'm neither from this area nor an Indiana Pacers fan, I respect the state and its basketball heritage. It nearly goes without saying that there is a level of basketball reverence in this area that cannot be matched in this particular continent, much less the other 49 states.
We're not including China in this breakdown, apparently. Because not...

The value of an NBA superstar is essentially determined by one of two factors: fantasy yield (I.e. pure, raw stats) and that player’s team’s success. Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger’s rank on SLAMonline’s definitive Top 50 list seems to be the result of reconciliation between those two qualifications.
On one hand we have Granger, the former...
Sure watching the real Reggie Miller highlights must be bad enough for Knicks fans. But having to watch a bunch of Asians run around and act it all out must be a million times worse.
BTW, they really aren’t my cousins, but I bet you we are somehow related.

Reggie Miller is big in China. Apparently. There is a Web site called ChinaPacers.com where they have a video recreating Miller’s legendary Pacer moments on an outdoor court in China with guys who might not be able to touch the net when they jump. And yet, it is brilliant. YouTubey brilliant. I just wish they…
Thanks to ChinaPacers.com, these Chinese Pacers' fans know their team very well. They reenact some of Reggie Miller's greatest moments, including the eight points in nine seconds.Really thrilling and I'm glad to see fans from other countries supporting such an awesome team.Take a look:
We hadn’t heard of chinapacers.com until today, but the founders of that site clearly knew how to get their name out: by gathering together on the court and recreating Reggie Miller’s greatest NBA moments—then setting their pseudo-highlights to the original audio broadcasts. Pretty amazing stuff.

I’ll just go ahead and dub this video, the greatest Reggie Miller tribute to come out of China — ever. Taking it upon themselves to reenacted some of the best moments Reggie Miller had during his career. This Miller Time fan club probably wouldn’t wear a MJ jersey if there was a fire.
From removing bandages to cover giant pimples to Jay-Z going nuts in the stands, last night’s Yankees game certainly had drama. But all that drama didn’t mean **** because in the end, the 97 win regular season, $40 million addition to the payroll Yanks couldn’t cut it.
And in all honesty I can’t even blame many of the players but I can blame Alexander Rodriguez. ...
At their annual meet-up (because there are enough Pacers fans in China to dictate an annual meet-up), the men of ChinaPacers.com reenacted some of Reggie Miller's greatest hits, set to the original calls. That's lovely and all, but it's burying the lede; the real story is that ChinaPacers.com exists. More »
