In recent years, the NBA has showcased a variety of creative three-point celebrations. We've seen the championship belt, the three goggles, and the three-to-the-head, among others.

The NFL looks down upon premeditated celebrations, but it seems that restriction doesn't apply to the No Fun League's broadcast partners. Despite NBC's Bob Costas gasbagging about celebrations earlier this season, the Peacock Network elected to enhance Victor Cruz's celebration with a bit of Latin music after scoring… » 1/05/12 12:40pm 1/05/12 12:40pm
