On some level, NBA Countdown is a bit better than Inside The NBA. Okay, at one thing and that’s bumper music between commercial breaks and graphic cutaways. Last night before the tip of Game 5 between Indiana and Miami, something magical happened. Doug Collins, former #1 overall pick, former head coach of the Bulls, Wizards and Sixers, let it be known that he has on occasion listened to the Clipse & Birdman’s “What Happened To That Boy”.

Wonderful Doug, just wonderful.
