This commercial is apparently a few weeks old (I don’t watch live TV, and when it’s a college basketball game I’m usually tweeting some pure utter nonsense), but I saw some chatter lately on NBA’s recent Sprint Commercial. It features a bunch of players passing the ball down the court (which is also the longest basketball court EVER).
LeBron James to Rondo to Steve Nash to Westbrook to Luol Deng to Jason Kidd to….RYAN GOMES! And Gomes makes the last pass to Josh Smith for the dunk! Thanks for all those great passes you All-Stars, but Ryan gets credit for the assist.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Ryan Gomes. However, his playing time and production are clearly on the downward trend unfortunately. He is averaging 3.5 points per game in only 16.2 MPG of action off the bench. This is coming off a season where he put up his worst shooting numbers of his career, and failed to average double figures in scoring for the first time since his rookie year.
Maybe some Sprint exec wanted Marshon and was all, “Hey, get me that player from Providence!!” Surely there can’t be more than one!
Here are some other twitter reactions:
