Video: Kenyan Orphans re-create 1987 NBA Eastern Conference Finals (for charity)

Nov 22, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

Is this a cheap publicity stunt to raise money for an orphanage in Kenya? Yes. No doubt.

And we’re good with it for two reasons — first, it’s a really entertaining video. Job well done. And sorry you have to relive that, Pistons fans.

Second, and most importantly, it’s a good cause. If you are feeling full and thankful today and have a little more to give, consider this charity. It’s a good cause, and we are very, very lucky with the things and opportunities we have in this country.

Hat tip to The Basketball Jones.

    This is pure awesome-sauce! My roommate in b-school was from Kenya and left a cushy banking job to head back home a few years ago. I was supposed to visit a while back but held off (darn state dept warnings). Anyways, if this is any indication of the spirit of the country then I’ll have to make the sojourn soon. These kids looked like they were having so much fun and are very creative.
