Kobe puppet looks more like a black Bob Dylan

LBJ puppet looks like Stu Scott. Awful commercials, FTR, and intellectually dishonest (Kobe & Bron being boyz) to boot.

I was a huge fan of the intellectual honesty and real world circumstances demonstrated by "The Lebrons" commercials.

*yeah, these commercials suck, bad. The Christmas one was solid but that is about it.

HAHA, our society sucks. I really love the way the article is written, almost as if they realize they are trying to start something over nothing. Didnt want to start a thread on this though.


http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=4869984

NEW YORK -- An advertisement featuring the NBA's two biggest superstars includes a gun reference, the same week two players were suspended for carrying firearms to the locker room.

The Nike ad, just inside the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated, has LeBron James on one page and Kobe Bryant on the other. Along with the slogan, "Prepare For Combat," is a quote from each player showing how tough he is.

Bryant's blurb says: "I'll do whatever it takes to win games. I don't leave anything in the chamber."

The chamber in a gun is the compartment that holds the bullet before it is fired.

Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton were suspended for the season Wednesday for having guns in the Washington Wizards' locker room.

Bryant's agent, Rob Pelinka, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In the end, we're all "only for a limited time," you guys.

Neither. Those commercials are dumb as hell and really annoying.
