Simply beautiful.

UPDATE: From ESPN’s YouTube page:

London-based animator Richard Swarbrick created a unique animation celebrating the best moments in NBA Finals history through art and music. He painted great plays from Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Tim Duncan, Julius Erving, LeBron James, and many others, immortalizing them as art, set against Mint Julep’s triumphant “Save Your Season.”
