YouTube and GIFs allow fans to watch key plays instantly.
Let's be honest, the creation of Youtube and GIFs has magnified the way we breakdown the craziest dunks, nastiest crossovers, and last second game-winners. It almost immortalizes the play, to be watched again, and again, and again. Just imagine the days where you only got to see a ridiculous Jordan dunk a handful of times, either live or on SportsCenter. Youtube and GIFs have no doubt helped the game grow internationally as well. Oh the joys of watching Eddy Curry going H.A.M. in China.
