Think about fifteen years ago. If Nate Robinson had attempted to jump on Paul Pierce’s back and instead fallen flat on his face, we would have seen it three times. Once, live. Once, in replay on the live telecast. Then maybe again on SportsCenter, if we were lucky.
Now, everything’s better. We can DVR the fall, and rewind our TV, and then rewind it again (and again, and again). Or we can go to Twitter, and almost certainly find a TwitVid of the play. Or we can just take our asses to YouTube and watch the fall over and over, and even immortalize it by spoofing old Michael Jordan commercials.
The possibilities are now endless. And the fall, no matter how many times I watch it, remains spectacular.
