Video: Nike ad finds ‘Melo, Wade, Chris Paul new places to play

Oct 25, 2011, 10:13 AM EDT

Got to give this to Nike — even during the lockout they know how to make some advertisements that will sell some shoes.

This latest one for the Jordan Brand has Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade playing in pickup games — pretty standard pickup games that you and I could walk into for the most part — around the globe. For me, the best part is the Rabbi, or maybe the rooftop game (I have a soft spot for sports on the roof ever since Clerks).

    I saw this commercial last night and thought it was great too. It’s kind of unseemly that Jordan is an owner now, though, and his image/name/jumpman23 brand is all over the commercial that is basically saying the players want to play…somewhere…anywhere…but like you said, leave it to Nike to know exactly how to sell some shoes.
