It's that time of year again: NBA playoffs, otherwise known as "the big dance" and then the finals which are called "the final dance."

Who coined this phrase in relation to NCAA and NBA playoffs? My guess is basketball personality Dick Vitale.

Probably the same person who invented the term Slam Dunk.

Cheesehead, that would be Chick Hearn, the voice of the LA Lakers.
