Thread: Paul George/Bankers Life in new NBA "shine" commercial

    Default Paul George/Bankers Life in new NBA "shine" commercial



    With the 2013-14 NBA season just 15 days away, the NBA has released a new commercial under the theme, “BIG IS ON.” Instead of featuring the typical big names, like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant or Dwight Howard, NBA Entertainment went a different direction and highlighted the young stars in the game.
    Pacers swingman Paul George starts it off, and the spot also shows a sweet view of Bankers Life Fieldhouse. George will also be prominently featured in NBA.com’s Fantasy Basketball campaign, according to a league spokesman.
    Other players featured in this promo include John Wall (Wizards), Kyrie Irving (Cavaliers), Damian Lillard (Trail Blazers), Harrison Barnes (Warriors), Jrue Holiday (Pelicans), Kemba Walker (Bobcats), Greg Monroe (Pistons) and Kenneth Faried (Nuggets). If you look closely, you’ll also see Indianapolis natives Mike Conley (Grizzlies) and Gordon Hayward (Jazz).
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    Could not have chosen a better player to promote as the next "face of the NBA". Young, great player, and great guy.

    I think NBA and Soccer commercials/advertisements are one of the best in the business. (Also commercials related to the sport like Nike with Jordan and Messi with Adidas)

    What was up with John Wall making a 3 point shot?

    Don't get me wrong, I love that Paul is leading it, but look at the teams in there: Indiana, Washington, Golden State, Cleveland, Portland, Memphis, Utah, Charlotte, Detroit, and Denver. Boston and San Antonio make rafter appearances, and the final helicopter shot is LA, but I don't see this as a major realization by the media that the Pacers are actually good. It's a bunch of mid-market/success teams.

    It just says we're the best of the "no one cares about", in their opinion, of course.

    I know, taking cracks at something totally not worth it, but felt I should throw in my two cents. Carry on.

    I saw it as the NBA making a marketing push of the new wave of NBA talent.

    I saw it as the Pacers in a commercial, as something other than the team being posterized. I don't really care why.

    Maybe, just maybe, Adam Silver is going to be the Frank Vogel to Stern's whoever the guy who preceded was and focus on promoting ALL of the teams instead of just the Lakers/Heat/Knicks/Bulls.......

    Love that PG was in it, but what a dumb commercial.

    Man I don't get why you guys are hating the commercial :/. The league might have a bias towards big-market teams because that is what makes money, but they don't hate small-markets.

    Personally, I loved the commercial. The idea of lights coming on when they hit a shot is unique and keeps my attention to get a glimpse of the next arena. I'm a fan.
