We Reminisce: Latrell Sprewell AND 1 TV Commercial

We’ve been tight with AND 1 ever since the HoopsTV.com days years and years ago when our offices were located just down the street from one another. Those were good times – we’d run with those guys almost every single day during lunch and after work, so we’ll always have a soft spot for the brand.

When the AND 1 crew came through this morning, we were reminiscing about the good old days, from one of our favorite shoes ever, the Tai Chi (FYI: Making a comeback very soon), to one of the best basketball TV commercials of all-time, Latrell Sprewell‘s “American Dream” spot. Check it out …

Brandon Jennings Under Armour “Back :02 Practice” Commercial

We caught this brand new video of Brandon Jennings, thought it was pretty sick, and wanted to share it with our readers. It’s a spot called “Back :02 Practice” and was shot a few weeks ago at Rowley Park in Gardena, Calif. Brandon felt that it was important to shoot his inaugural commercial since officially joining the League at Rowley, because that’s where his basketball journey originally started. He believes that the lessons he took from running at Rowley about practice and hard work – the main themes of the spot – have been crucial to getting him to where he is today.
