The one that comes to mind for me is Shawn Marion, invited into a game of pickup... decimates the guys... then takes off the chest weights that he had on "just to make it fair". I dig that.

Dang it, I'm trying to make this thread a poll... can I edit that... or do I have to make a new thread?

And you know how I feel about the Marion commercial...

Also, which players have had commercials... I've got eight so far:

Carmelo Anthony - (Don't Know the Name)

Kobe Bryant - Hate Me

Kevin Garnett - What's Inside

LeBron James - The LeBrons

Michael Jordan - Air Jordan XXI

Shawn Marion - (Don't Know the Name)

Tracy McGrady - Unstoppable

Amare Stoudemire - (Don't Know the Name)

I could only think of those eight... I hope I'm not forgetting a real good one. I just thought the Marion one was kind of lame...

see I just remember another one. There was also that Jermaine O'Neal commercial... where he comes out of the vending machine and schools white kids. I'd hate to start a poll, then remember another commercial, but I guess those nine are enough.

As for my personal favorite, I'd had to really think about it. It's not like voting for the MVP, Shawndo. Commercials are serious stuff...

Shawndo you flip-flopper! LOL.

Okay, I gotta think about this one for awhile.

As for the LeBrons, I'm going to consider the best one out of the bunch (I think there were three). The best LeBron one to me was dancing to Rick James. LeBron's is definitely a candidate for my vote.

Yeah I had forgotten the one where Jermaine comes into that pickup game and swats some dude, then stares him down. THAT was the shizzle.

I had to go with the LeBrons. "Drop that old school." Second place would be the Jordan. I liked all the commercials, except Marion's and Stoudemire's. Phoenix players need to make some better ads. I can't wait for the Boris Diaw "I'm French, but I'm not a p****" campaign.

THIS ONE IS NO CONTEST. Air Jordan XXI is the greatest basketball commercial of all-time. There's been none like it. It's one where you can watch over and over again. It just gives you goosebumps, everything about that commercial. Simply AMAZING.

Brian said it. The Jordan one was truly magical in bringing back memories in a real mesmerizing fashion. Loved that one! Long live M.J.

For me, a tie between the Lebrons & Jordan. I too got goosebumps watching the kids imitate MJ's moves. Awesome........

I only liked one Lebrons commercial, and that was the dancing one. All the others sucked in my opinion.

I can understand why people voted for the Jordan one, but man... when you watch it don't you feel sort of bad when you see that kid taunting in the end like Jordan used to? Great...he's teaching kids to show up other kids.

I voted for the Garnett commercial, which was very inventive and entertaining. Addidas has done a great job of matching Nike ad campaigns.

The Kobe commercial I like, but I'm not about the musical choice for it...damn I was supposed to work on that shoot too, but he nixed the original script and shot it with a different production. I did work on that Amare spot though.

I can't believe so few people have voted on this poll...

That must be cool working on commercials, El Jefe. I've tried to get a couple gigs PAing or whatnot, but you know how LA works...
