Gotta applaud adidas Basketball on another fresh new campaign. This one's entitled #QuickAintFair and is premiered with A$AP Rocky spitting some new, adidas-tailored bars over "Goldie" with rising NBA point guards John Wall, Damian Lillard, & Jrue Holiday showcasing some quick crossovers in the visuals. Everything came together nicely — the song, the athletes, and even the CGI visuals (that court looks amazing). Look for this commercial to air throughout the NBA Playoffs with the new adidas Crazyquick shoe releasing in five colorways on May 1st. I'll close things with John Wall expressing his fandom of the shoe and A$AP...
“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.”
I just got hooked onto a new webisode series courtesy of Portland Trail Blazers rookie Damian Lillard today. Above is the all-new third episode of #LicenseToLillard as the series is an in-depth mix of interviews, workouts, and day-in-the-life footage of Lillard as he gets closer to his NBA debut. This episode centers around the NBA Draft Combine and the Draft itself back in June.
Keep tuned in until the 8 minute mark for the most touching moment of the video as he, his family, and his draft party back in his hometown of Oakland enjoy the announcement of the 6th pick to the Portland Trail Blazers. Simply great to see all their joy and the reward of all the hard work.
