I think it is kind of expensive, considering that it is on-line thing. Better to buy a league-pass I think.

no its not all a one time thing. you can download the video to your computer, ipod and even the PSP. Here is the google FAQ on the difference between Day Pass and Buying the video.

What's the difference between buying a Day Pass for a video and buying a video?

If you buy a Day Pass for a video, you can download and view the video through the Google Video Player at any time over the next 24 hours. If you buy a video, you'll be able to download the video to your computer and view it indefinitely.

Tim Duncan notched his career-high of 53 points against the visiting Dallas Mavericks in a 126-123 overtime Spurs loss.
The list is quite short, though if they include other games I'd be very interested. Anyway, thanks for posting.

games i want:

1. memorial day miracle. i was at the game and still have never seen the broadcast.

2. 1999 finals series. i have all the rest on dvd.

3. the game in tmac's rookie (or 2nd?) season where he dunks on kukoc and rides him out of bounds. classic!

i pretty much have everything else i want on vhs/dvd including the entire 1995 western conference finals.

Depends how often you download. And if they do older games.

Last I heard they were going to sell SNL *skits* for $1.99. So an entire game for $3.99 sounds like a steal to me.

Id like to get Dave's 71 point game, that would be nice.

If it enables download, it's not that expensive. Few people can each download different game and exchange them.

Q- Who hit the 3 point game winner for Dallas?.

Has anyone actually bought a game yet and watched it? I would be interested to know if you have, what was the quality like.


A- Nash

You can go to the page and watch first 30 seconds or so for free and see for yourself the quality. It looked pretty good to me.

That wasn't on Kukoc, from memory it was on David Kornel. Classic dunk though.

i guess we all remember it differently. hopefully, it will get settled when i get a copy of the game!

Not directly, as it's likely the video files come with some DRM protection to only allow them to be played on a certain number of PCs, not unlimited. Like music purchases from iTunes or Napster.

You'd have to defeat the DRM to do so, which could prove cumbersome.
