10/02/2015: As of today, the COMPLETE 1996-1997 season has been posted below for you all to enjoy.
We are working hard on expanding our replay offerings. We plan on posting hundreds of replays, mostly from the 1990s and 2000s, so check back often to see what has been added. If you’d like a way to keep up with what replays we are adding and when we are adding them, then head on over to our LIST OF REPLAYS page. If you have games that aren’t on our site and you are willing to share them, please CONTACT US.
Note that if a video below ever says it cannot be played on this site, just click on the YouTube logo or the title in the video player and it should play just fine directly on YouTube.
Stay tuned for more additions to our site, and keep an eye out on our REPLAYS LIST to follow everything we’ve been adding.
The replays are hosted on YouTube and should work across all platforms and operating systems. The videos have been tested on Windows using Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, iOS using Safari, and Android using Mozilla Firefox — and they work just fine on all of them. If you come across a browser they don’t work on, please comment and let us know.

Archiving the Basketball Games
Do you want to download and archive the games for later/offline viewing? No problem. Follow these easy steps.
1. Right-click the title text of the game you want to download (the text just underneath the thumbnail) then left-click the option to copy the URL. In Chrome and Firefox this option is called “Copy link address” and “Copy link location” respectively. Internet Explorer will say something along the lines of “Copy Shortcut.”
2. Navigate to the KeepVid website. Once the site has loaded, paste the URL you copied from step 1 into their text box and then hit the “DOWNLOAD” button. Note: you’ll need Java installed to use this site, and you will be prompted to install it if Java isn’t on your machine.
3. You should get a prompting to allow Java to run. Allow it. Now you will be at a page that provides you with multiple download options. Click on your preferred resolution and file format and the file will start downloading to your PC.
Once finished downloading, the file should open in your favorite media player, but if you have issues getting it to play, I recommend trying these players in this order: VLC Media Player, Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC), and Windows Media Player.
Note that if you have issues getting the KeepVid site to work, we recommend trying a free program called 4K Video Downloader. There are versions of this program available for Windows, Macs, and Linux.
