NFT: Stops, pops, and it drops: is it still in use?

The Brothers Albert would say it in b-ball games many moons ago but it's been decades since I've heard one of them announcing a game. Is it still a popular catch-phrase of theirs or anyone else? I haven't really cared about basketball since the mid-nineties (when it became apparent that the guys playing the game really didn't give a shit) and was wondering. No real reason.

is that one heard on baseball broadcasts any more? I used to hear it on my transistor but haven't listened to it since the battery died back in Aught-6. I remember it because my onion belt had just wilted and I had to run to the five and dime for a new one.

line before an Albert ever saw a microphone.

If you didn't get to hear him, he was the ultimate homer announcer. Celtics games were great on the radio.
