LeBron got his ring, needless to say more. Salute Miami Heat. Well played…
Pepsi MAX teamed up with NBA rookie of the year Kyrie Irving for a pick-up game in Bloomfield, NJ. Just that Kyrie did not play as himself but as “Uncle Drew”. Awesome stuff. Well done Pepsi.
Pretty inspiring ad from Adidas following up on their latest All In campaign. THe ad clip features Derrick Rose of Chicago Bulls who just became NBA’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the season. The ad plays on the notion of question(s), “why can’t I be the best player in the league? Why can’t I be the MVP?” Well D. Rose got his answer becoming the youngest MVP in the NBA history. Dedicate yourself to the game you play and never look back. Awesome stuff.
This is probably like the third post on this particular collaboration but when something this cool comes along, it just needs to be shared. Needless to say I’m a big fan of the joint venture project between coolrain and MINDstyle, in association with the NBA of course. The NBA Collector Series 1 features a number of NBA players in a unique collectible figure form. It’s all in the details. I really hope to cop one of the figures on my desk. Probably won’t have the space for the entire collection but one should suffice. Check out pictures of the collection below and for more detailed pictures check out J.M.E.
While back NBA and Marvel joined forces for some pretty epic NBA styled Marvel cover art. Now these two names have joined forces again for some exclusive Marvel styled NBA apparel. Now in most cases these types of shirts would not look too cool. But don’t let the idea fool you. The shirts and caps produced for this collaboration are pretty damn cool.
You might remember the awesome NBA figures/collectibles by MINDstyle and Coolrain? The other day I came across an awesome set of photos for the NBA Collector Series by these two toy/design houses. The figures themselves are just awesome, but when you combine great surrounding for the photoshoot you get something even better. At least the pictures made me smile.
Robert Rodriguez makes badass movies, Bruce Willis and Danny Trejo star in badass movies and Kobe Bryant is a badass basketball player. So what do we get when we combine all of the above. We get the Black Mamba, a film by Robert Rodriguez.
LeBron has a lot of weight on his shoulders, folks expecting him to rally Miami to another title. I think LeBron is hungry for a ring of his own as well. But the on-court and media pressures are not slowing him down, especially on the sneaker front. He is after all one of the better players in today’s NBA. Speaking of sneakers, LeBron’s fresh Nike LeBron 8 V/2 sneaker is making its way to the store shelves and in promotion of this, Nike has a little video out there that is sure to catch some buzz. Titled Lion, the clip represents the Lion within the player, or the shoe. Not planning to go through all the semantics of the ad, but found it pretty cool. Thus sharing it with all of you. Speaking of new sneakers, I need to get me mines. Perhaps LeBrons this time?
You might remember the first edition of the Jumpan 23 – Jordan Brand’s new Dwayne Wade commercials titled Dominate Another Day. Well there are three new releases featuring Kevin Hart as Specialist H and Dwayne Wade as D3, you know like the sneaker?
Jordan brand continues its set of entertaining basketball related ads with another one featuring Carmelo Anthony. The ad has a semi-original approach with Carmelo Anthony taking up the role of pretty much each individual in the ad from players to photographers. “Carmelo Anthony plays multiple roles as he shows the full extent of his versatility in the commercial for the Jordan Melo M7.” (Jumpman23)
