Default the talking ball

Is this the worst promotional stuff the NBA has ever done?

This spot here is pretty well written, but has about as much legs as the Magic in these playoffs. They needed to give the talking balls moustaches or full wigs or something. Hairy balls. How did they not see the staying power of that?

This is kinda weak by NBA standards, which imo other then the NFL promotes their league better then any of the other leagues.

I like it - well, this one in particular. It's Hank Azaria ffs! But he should have spoke in his Moe Syzlak voice.

It's okay. The player shoulda been Bargnani though, and they shoulda shown him grabbing all the rebounds.

Oh shit, I don't even noticed it's him! Until you said it, it's really Hank. His origin voice and Moe voice are very similar so you can feel Moe talking. Even if you watching FRIENDS you can feel Moe haha.
But you know what, Moe is good, but Apu would be epic.

I thought it was Dangerfield.

They just wasted their time and money making this commercial when the Magic are out of the playoffs already. Don't think they're actually gunna keeping using it.

I don't know, they've always managed to milk whatever concept they've come up with. I fully expect commercials with the ball talking about Ray Allen's 3-point shooting or the big 3 in Miami sharing the ball to show up as we get to the second round.
