I just caught a glimpse of the new Adidas ad campaign for their upcoming shoe releases. The 30 second commercial features Kevin Garnett, Gilbert Arenas, Tracy McGrady, Chauncey Billups and Tim Duncan hawking the importance of teamwork. Now I am not sure that I buy that everyone is into the whole teamwork thing. I know Duncan, Billups and KG will do whatever it takes to win whether their numbers take a hit to get the win or not. But I have always seen Gilbert and T-Mac as me first kind of players, although I think that might change with T-Mac as his window for a championship is starting to close.
It’s nice to see C-Billups in a national ad campaign as well as having his own signature shoe.
