In this commercial for NBA 2K10, Derrick Rose receives an epic smack talk smack down from Kobe “My guy’s awesome because he has four rings” Bryant. Rose might not, by his own admission, be able to get out of the second round, but he already has Larry Bird-like acting skills.
A three-way collaboration between Adidas, FreeDarko and Chali 2na from Jurassic 5 spawned the following commercial, which mimics the style FD’s book The Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac. It features Chicago’s own Derrick Rose, and it’s a fun little video. Just keep in mind that it’s less a bonus chapter to the MPBA and more of a commercial for Adidas products. (I had no idea that Adidas was such a key component of Derrick’s magic sauce…)
Check out this new Michael Jordan “commercial” (via TrueHoop via Docksquad Sports). Note the utter lack of Jordan-as-a-Wizard highlights. I’m so glad that our society as a whole simply pretends that whole thing never happened. Kind of like the Nazi moon base of World War II.
