We tend to think that the advent of YouTube, the internet and hashtag jokes has made the NBA in to a completely different beast than it was in the halcyon days of the 1980s. But then you watch something like this — the Utah Jazz making a terrible knockoff of “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” complete with a chase scene featuring a papier-mâché boulder that looks like a malformed peach — and you realize the NBA has always been a super weird league that’s always been filled with an amazing cast of characters, even in 1980s Utah. Good to know.
