On November 1, 1946, the very first NBA game was played in Toronto, between the New York Knicks and the Toronto Huskies. Denzel Washington hosts this golden anniversary retrospective, and those who know it best--players, coaches, trainers, and sports journalists--tell the league's story. From Mikan, to Russell, to Chamberlain, to Dr. J, to Bird, to Magic, to Jordan, this video shows some of the nicest footage of NBA classic teams and plays from their first 50 years. The film ends by listing the players voted the 50 greatest by position, followed by a musical tribute by Vanessa Williams
