The NBA's 75th anniversary has opened the door to plenty of celebration.
But that was just the beginning of the festivities.
The alternate broadcast featured visuals from decades past (1960s for the first quarter, 1970s for the second, 1980s for the third and 1990s for the fourth). It also included special guests Marv Albert, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bob Costas -- and much more.
"We're taking fans on a journey through the evolution of this vibrant, culturally impactful league while also pairing the content with the iconic performers of today," said Tim Corrigan, Vice President, ESPN Production.
"Regardless of age or era, if you love basketball, there is something for you in this broadcast."
If you're looking for a blast from the past, here are highlights from the retro-cast:
