As a diehard Michael Jordan fan, I still get the chills when I watch this intro. It reminds me of the good ol’ days when becoming a professional athlete, more so basketball player was still a career option.
Or so I thought.
The reason why companies like Stubhub and ticket brokers continue to make so much money is because of experiences like this.
Sure, I can watch the game on TV but it’s just not the same.
Same reason why movie theaters will always be around.
Many people go to movie theaters to see films on the opening night, where they will pay a large price to see a film that later will be available for free, or almost free, via rental or download.
Sooner or later you can find a free copy of whatever you want, but getting to see a copy the moment it is released by its creators (and actually being there) is priceless.
Like watching Jordan play.
