So real quick I just wanted to touch on these new NBA 2K12 commercials I’ve been seeing lately. My first gripe is that they got Brian Wilson of all people to represent Celtics fans. Whaaa? Brian Wilson? The closer for the San Francisco Giants? I just don’t get it…he’s a weird dude and yeah, he’s funny but really? Not only is he not a Boston guy but then he goes and wears this ridiculous getup for the commercial. Come on Brian, you’re better than that. I’m a diehard Celtics fan and I havent dressed like that in…months.
The second thing that bothers me, and this is worse than Brian Wilson, is that they tapped Drake to represent Miami Heat fans. Drake is from Canada. Dude was on Degrassi…that’s like as far from South Beach as it gets. And someone please correct me if I’m wrong but I never saw little Jimmy Brooks rolling around campus rocking any Heat gear. This concerns me. But it also cements my theory that the Miami Heat officially have no real fans. Just people that think its sexy to root for those douchebags. I’ll keep my Lebron bashing for another post, maybe if the NBA ever returns, or if Lebron beats up an infant at one of his basketball camps to prove he was tougher. However, these commercials are so unauthentic it’s not even funny…but I bet it’s gonna be a good game…I heard lockout mode is fun as shit.
