I feel the need to share my excitement at hearing the old NBA on NBC theme song again for NBC’s coverage of USA Basketball during the Summer Olympics. That rockin’ song was written by John Tesh (!) and is called “Roundball Rock.” (Enjoy it here and here.)

You know how a certain smell or feel in the air can bring back a specific time in your life? “Roundball Rock” is like that for me. It just brings back happy times. Watching basketball with my Dad. Playing basketball with my Dad, which I did quite a bit. Larry Bird. Magic Johnson. Hakeem Olajuwon. Marv Albert. Mike Fratello — the Czar of the Telestrator. Ahmad Rashad. Steve “Snapper” Jones. Showtime. That’s also where my crazy love for Bob Costas started. He was the halftime anchor for the NBA on NBC and I’ve loved him ever since.

Those were good times.
