    Totally cracked up at this. We’ve all met a ‘Dr Drain’ before.

    This may be the best commercial jumpman has produced in 10. Solid. Years (!!). — the old “b’more” carmelo ad comes to mind. and the “look into my eyes” joint was hot. but this one is a winer. Blake Griffin, pitchman extraordinaire.

    Way better than the Nike KD adds

    Blake doing what he does best. Basically the only thing he does. Why is this dude in more commercials than LeBron? LA. Media. Selling the dunk while ignoring that the rest of his game is D-2 worthy at best. Good commercial thought. About #12 on the all time Jumpman commercials, but better than some other ones out there no doubt about it.

    best commercial with a basketball player , in a very long time, can’t think of any other that are better. Funny, heartwarming, good blend of visuals, music and acting…. great job

    I love it! The ad even managed to make me think of even buying the shoes. Just because it’s a commercial, it shouldn’t mean that the people involved can’t be imaginative or have a hell of a time executing it. This shows that. Jordan has got themselves a pair of winners with these two.

    Blake Griffin could become an actor one day after his basketball career is over.

    …and that really looks like a basketball shoe.
