Damian Lillard, John Wall and Jrue Holiday Star in adidas Ad (VIDEO)

Quick Ain’t Fair.

Three of the best young guards in the NBA today — Damian Lillard, John Wall and Jrue Holiday — are featured in a new adidas commercial which premiered today. Rapper A$AP Rocky provides the voiceover.

More details from adidas Basketball:

Narrated by rapper A$AP Rocky and featuring his song “Goldie,” the spot captures the mesmerizing, quick moves of John Wall (Washington Wizards), Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers) and Jrue Holiday (Philadelphia 76ers).

The spot opens with A$AP introducing a mythical family of quicks that balled wearing an advanced shoe, the Crazyquick, which helped them dominate their opponents to reach the highest levels of the game.

“I wore the Crazyquick throughout the season and I’m happy to have my first big thing with the adidas family,” said Wall. “I’m a big fan of A$AP.  He’s somebody that has real good music going out.  He’s a different type of person, a different type of style and it’s great to have him narrating this commercial. I think everyone’s gonna like it a lot.”

Crazyquick features an innovative four quick zone outsole to provide maximum traction and flexibility for quick movements. Crazyquick drops May 1 in five colorways and is available for pre-order today at adidas.com.

    Wow I KNEW I had seen this type of commercial before, remember watching this one when I was a kid…I wonder if Adidas actually acknowledged that they got the idea from that old commercial

    I thought wall was signed with reebok?

    Kobe’s injury was a freak accident, my aunt got her achilles tendon teared while getting off her car. Stephen Curry’s ankles are weaker than Bambi’s and Russ was hit by another player. Adidas athletes get injured without contact and usually are ACL tears. Adidas sucks, they have terrible cushioning and sacrifice support by using light materials just to claim to be the lightest. But go ahead wear those crappy shoes if you wanna get injured be my guest.

    Adidas owns Reebok and switched him over at the start of this season as they’re moving in a more streetwear/throwback sneaker kind of direction.

  • Da Real

    This is horrible and the basketball moves were poorly staged circa 1999, Adidas need to get a new ad agency and internal staff after approving this crap. I’d expect this from a small brand, but not Adidas
