"When you're crazy quick, quick ain't fair."
That sounds like what many an opposing coach had to say while John Wall fueled the Wizards surge over the final 50 games of this season, yet it's the kicker line for the latest Adidas shoe commercial staring the Wizards speedster. Wall shared the advertising spotlight with fellow point guards Damian Lillard from the Portland Trailblazers and Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers - and shared the ad with his Twitter followers. It's noted that Wall was a No.1 overall draft pick, Lillard is the likely Rookie of the Year and Holiday made the All-Star team.
That's A$AP Rocky on the narration about a "family" who lived in a shoe "and cut and crossed over until there wasn't no more - competition there is."
The commercial ignores the fact that none of the players reached the NBA playoffs. If the Wizards perform next season the way they played this campaign with Wall in the lineup, they will get there quick enough.
