‘It’s real, and it’s spectacular!’ Jerry Seinfeld inspires newest NBA broadcasting catch phrase (video)

It wasn’t as entertaining as Kramer getting into a fight with Reggie Miller at a Knicks game, but Jerry Seinfeld’s presence at the Pistons-Nets game in Brooklyn on Friday still inspired a nifty turn of phrase by the broadcasting crew.
Joe Johnson’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the second overtime gave the Nets a 108-105 win, and as the camera panned to Seinfeld seated at courtside, Brooklyn Nets play-by-play man Ian Eagle served up this:
“It was real, and it was spectacular!”
And if you’re not familiar with that Seinfeldian reference, shame. Shame on you.
Next question: Why is Jerry wearing a corrective boot? That would make a good Modern Seinfeld episode, actually.
