WATCH: 'NPR Sports' Parody: A Classical NBA Finals

Friday, June 21, 2013

Some may call Thursday night's final showdown between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs for the NBA championship a sports classic. But a new video on YouTube's Official Comedy channel says classical is more like it. The video, "NPR Sports," offers a parody of NPR and its coverage of the NBA Finals — punctuated by Mozart's Requiem.

Of course, it reminds us of Saturday Night Live's 1998 "Schweddy Balls" sketch with Alec Baldwin.

Take a look for yourselves.
