NBA Finals gets Taiwanese animation treatment (Video)

After almost a week of waiting, the NBA Finals finally tips off tonight as the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat face off for the second straight season. Last year the Heat barely pulled out victories in both Game 6 and Game 7 in Miami to take home the title. This year the Spurs have the home court advantage, and will be looking for revenge.

Of course we’ve been getting all sorts of previews for The Finals from nearly every site that has anything at all to do with basketball. Plenty of them have been traditional, but there have been some out of the box ones as well.

But I think this video preview takes the cake as the most creative and bizarre. Yep, the NBA Finals got the Taiwanese animation treatment. If you’ve never seen any of their work before, this will be quite strange, but it’s rather humorous.

At one point, LeBron James takes off from half court for a dunk, taking a selfie in mid air. In another scene Tim Duncan, driving a motorized scooter (because he’s old), sticks his foot out and gives LeBron a low blow. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without Chris Bosh being drawn as a dinosaur.

Yeah, I don’t have much else. You’re just going to have to watch this one.
